New Blog for the New Year

Hi everyone!

I've decided to start a new blog for 2009:

I decided that since I closed my jewelry business I didn't want to keep blogging under that name. So I just took the "jewelry" part off. My new blog will be EVERYTHING by me - my favorites, my thoughts, my pictures, my crafts...Hope to see you there!

Hope you all have a fun, safe New Year!

We were driving home and saw this owl about a quarter of a mile from home. I didn't have the right lens, so we drove home and came back to see if it was still there. I got some really great pictures of it. We can hear them at night, but we've never seen one. It was very exciting for us.

Rescued from the snow

Our HOA hired someone to dig us out. The snow has been melting pretty fast. I'm actually looking forward to being able to drive in to work tomorrow.

White Christmas

Look what I got!

Hello Kitty 3-qt. Popcorn Popper

This isn't something I would buy for myself, but totally LOVE that I got it as a gift!!
p.s. I thought the snow was done, but now we have rain/snow mix. Will this ever end?! *sigh*

Merry Christmas!

Our tree, complete with vintage electric train set from the '40s.

Environmentally friendly water bottle

After being stuck at the FedEx facility for the past 4 days, my new water bottle finally arrived. Being trapped in the house makes a visit from the FedEx driver that much more exciting. (MORE snow today. Can't believe it.)

I miss being at home.
