One Last Look

Putting the holidays to bed.  It was a wonderful time with Dylan for both of us even though Mark was an invalid the last 4 days.  The richness that this child has brought to our lives continues to delight us.  We may have watched Polar Express 10-12 times, no matter!  Building stuff was big this year and being delighted with each and every gift never got old.  Running to see the garbage truck either.  All in all the wonder of a child makes it all worthwhile.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Off we go over the wild blue yonder to spend the holidays with Lindsay, Dave, Dylan and the the New Jersey Kohlers.  Wishing you all a wonderful holiday with the ones you love and the same to those whom you love and can't be with you.

Pen's loot

We took Penny on our walk Saturday and it seems she's all about picking up sticks enroute.  This is just one of several she carried along for awhile. She is the cutest and best natured girl though and a
great walker.

Matt and Sara's Remodel

 It's taken a little while but the work is now mostly done on their
 wall bump out and opening up and replacing of the stairs.
 Stopped by today to have our weekly look and they were just doing paint touch ups.
 Sara's sister Kat even spent to week painting their kitchen for them.....surely they loved the help.
All in all it turned out just great!

Christmas Lightly

Yes folks, I'm taking Christmas here at home lightly this year.
Just added some lights to a tree I already have on our sunporch and called it "good" .  Actually I kind of enjoy being unconventional and find opportunities to do it whenever I think it won't affect others.  We have no company this year, it's just the two of us so perfect excuse to be my "out of the box" self.

Course Walk

The days are numbered that I can walk the golf course where we live.  The golfers have it most of the year but there is a span from late October to  first heavy snowfall that I can walk it pretty much whenever.  This morning was our first bit of snow.
Not heavy enough to keep me off and even found the gate opened to Wildemere Drive next to 5 so I got one last quick pass down there as well.  After Xmas for sure I will be traversing the same 2 mile road stretch with my yax trax on.  Sigh!

Imagine my delight a few months ago when I found out that you can get free music downloads online with your library card.  3 a week.  Sure not EVERY artist is on there but I don't have any trouble finding ones I like and even some rather different but good ones.  Every genre pretty much too.  I've always said the public library is the very best thing I personally get for my tax dollars and even more so now!
