And eggnog goes extinct
Boo hoo, no more eggnog in our coffee until next fall. No more Christmas tree either. The garbage men were hauling away the poor old trees today so we stripped all the ornaments off in a flash and put them in piles on the sofa and in bowls to put away later. Now the living room looks bald and sad, but the ornament piles are so pretty I had to take pictures (I love my new camera!).
Also, in praise of colorful homes, here are some pictures of my friend Maggie's house. Love that color! Imagine a whole street of house painted such dazzling, fun colors. I'd want to walk up and down it all day. If I were the type to get involved with community projects I would be spearheading a movement to make that happen somewhere. But I'm not. I'm the type who wants to stay inside my own yellow house all day and not answer the phone. So.
Happy weekend, folks. And Sunday Scribblings this week is about kissing, so if you get a whim to tell a kiss story, you are cordially invited to do so.
P.S. It is a dangerous world we live in. It hit me last night that you can be sitting right in front of the fire in your Captain Kirk-y leather chair, feet up, laptop in lap not even plugged in, and because you have wireless you can look up something on Amazon, and because Amazon knows you so well (and loves you), it will invite you to buy things without even getting up to fetch your credit card. So, you can buy books without even moving and they will arrive at your door. I think this is some kind of dark magic. I think I love this dark dangerous magic.
