After Christmas

I stand corrected - by Stiletto ElsieXie 

Stiletto ElsieXie has left a new comment on your post "After Christmas": 

Enjoy looking at your lovely photos. Btw the vine with the purple flowers is not Clematis but thunbergia grandiflora

Ours was very quiet Christmas this year, the last few years actually.  Our children and grand children are all somewhere else.  

Today I am cooking dried beans, large limas, and brown rice.  and garlic bread.  Mmmmmm. 

I’ve been reading J. A. Jance, William Lashner, mysteries.....I love a good mystery.  Life’s a mystery, right?!

The new year is standing behind the curtain almost here.  Something to think about.  I need a plan, a nip and tuck, here and there,  for sure.

Learning is fun for me, “seeing” through photographs, I know many people do not like Facebook, but it is full of life......good things....I would not otherwise find.  However, you will NOT find my personal business there, ever!

For the winter I am not taking many photographs.  I do not have wifi and will wait until we are on the road again.

There are paints and canvas beside my couch in a basket.  Waiting.

So here I am trying to find motivation.  Wish me luck.

  1. The holiday comes and goes so quickly. Butters sure is a picture of comfort. Wishing you and yours all the best for the coming new year.

  2. Wishing you a very happy New Year dear Sandy:-)

  3. Painting, how fun! Can't wait to see what you create !!!

  4. Thank you for letting me know where and how I can follow you.

    Congratulations on painting. If the paints and supplies have not yet moved from their position by the couch, may I suggest that you just start now. I started something last night and was surprised to see how fast something can come together.

    Happy painting. Happy New Year.
