Sunday photos

A bit of a slow day around here for a change. I12, J15 and I were at church by 730 this morning so I12 could warm up for his performance. They sounded great! V and K9 arrived after the first service and stayed for the second service while J15 and I went shopping. Man, I LOVE the discount racks! We found some really cute stuff on the 75% off clearance rack and I still had an extra 30% off coupon to use- we got some sweet deals- and only clothing for the two of us. It's been a while since I've gotten anything new and I really needed it.
It was snowing a bit this morning. Not really enough to warrant getting out the snow thrower (we picked it up Friday evening) but V wanted to play... er... make sure it works... yeah, that....
It's HUGE!!

And a package for me appeared under the tree...
Only a few biscotti left.
We did bake Vanilla cookies today:
Some traditional...
Some not. Well, they're traditional for us...
K9 got out his old hot wheels track and was playing with that this afternoon.
Spaz thought it was fun...
Look at that concentration.
But then, all tired out, it's time to take a nap on the presents.
It was nice to have a slower than usual day. V did find his heavy duty respirator that he's going to use up in the attic. He will do the installation, J15 will run the insulation from the vent to where he is working and help him get it cut to size, the boys will load it into the sling. They're going to try to work on it for a few hours at at time during this week as the weather allows. We were granted a reprieve today since it was snowing.
Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice. The days will start getting longer. I can't wait. I know we have several cold, dark months ahead but every little bit helps. Have a peaceful week.


  1. love the kitty shots. Aren't they funny!! Anything that moves fast they love. Glad you were able to relax a little today. I did nothing but read in front of the fire today. Bob watched ball games and dozed. Had a little more fine snow fall - it was a perfect lazy day...Merry Christmas...debbie

  2. Never made biscotti, but it looks pretty yummy

  3. Those old hot wheel tracks were so much fun! Glad to see they're still around.

  4. All your cookies look yummy! I finished all mine on Friday, but now the challenge is to make them all last through dinners, gift tins, and a couple of parties... I am definitely not making any more!!!

  5. Ah, cute kitty! Glad you have a respirator. That stuff is nasty! Hope things stay calm for you & you have a wonderful Christmas.

  6. Looks like your kitty had a blast. :)


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
