Random pictures...

Jeff and I are incredibly busy at work with the cold weather, although this week is much easier than last week. Greetings to all of you, and Merry Christmas!
This hawk was sunning itself the other morning...

This is Brian, hard at work! He does not always get THIS dirty!

Our "green" tree... with only 20 or so ornaments so far...

My favorite nativity set ever... so sweet.

Carolyn's Birthday Doll & Crib!

Don't tell my mother-in-law, but this is her birthday present she's getting tomorrow! I made this doll, pillow, and quilt just for her. I got the baby doll crib at a yard sale, after first trying to get the girl to keep it for sentimental reasons. I know Carolyn will be thrilled, and I'm pretty excited about it, too. She had a similar crib that "went down with the Arizona" as Carolyn likes to say. (The house fire five years ago). Happy Birthday!
I Googled the crib and it seems that it was a sample used by traveling salesmen selling full sized cribs in the 50's. So cute!

Survivor Winner...

I'm so happy that Bob, the physics teacher, has won Survivor Gabon. I really enjoyed this season and liked watching Bob very much. I'm a bit shocked he won... good for him. I really liked Sugar also, and thought she deserved the $100,000 fan vote money. Oh well. She claims she's famous now, so she'll do fine. News flash: MY DESK AT HOME IS CLEAN AND NOTHING IS HID UNDERNEATH! It takes so much time, but it is so refreshing to be done. No snow on the ground yet, but it sure is cold. Maybe I'll wake up to a blanket of white. I'm off to bed... it's LATE for me, but I napped a bit today and really wanted to finish the desk. Have a great week!

The Moon, Venus, and Jupiter

Top two pictures were taken December 1st...

If you look closely, you'll be able to see all three. At times like this I want a better camera.

I took this last night as the clouds were scattering past the beautiful moon...

I finally realized the picure descriptions should be ABOVE each picture since we all scroll DOWN to see the pictures... it just took awhile.

I have such a crazy sore throat I can't go to Sacramento as planned. I will also miss Greg's choir concert (and I'm really sad). This throat virus is hideous! I am officially whining... Hope everyone else is well and will go to the concert tonight or tomorrow night.

51 and I'm all done... NO MO' YARDSALES... EVER!

Greetings all... again, too tired to post a picture. I survived the sale and grossed around $400 (net about 150 after the cost of paying kids to help me, placing an ad, etc.) Even though I'm happy to make a little money, I'm the most happy because the stuff is GONE! I parked in our garage last night! WOO-HOO. Now comes the hard part... not getting more stuff. Hope you're all having a great weekend. I'm going to bed (yes, it's 5:45 p.m.) Good night...

Estate Sale Preparations...

I'm too tired to go get my camera and upload a picture or two... this Saturday I'm having my own Estate Sale... really I'm just going crazy and getting rid of the CLUTTER around this house. It is already so refreshing... and I'm only 1/5 of the way done at the most! I posted an ad on Craigslist for the first time ever tonight.. woo hoo! Hope everyone has a nice week with this crisp weather.
