Still plugging away......

.....on Christmas gifts here. Nearly done though. The last of the sewn gifts will be finished today. I still have a couple of knitted gifts left to do. They are small and should go relatively quickly.

All the Christmas shopping is done. Things that needed to be mailed are mailed and have reached their final destinations. Christmas calls (visits) have been made....and were very enjoyable! Decorations are up (and have been for awhile). Tree is up (artificial of course....wouldn't dream of cutting down a tree only to toss it later....I'm too much if a "tree-hugger" for that). Nearly time to exhale and enjoy.  :)

The weather has warmed up (relatively speaking). Only faint traces of the little snow we had remain. Lots of foggy days. The fog just lingers all day long making it so my solar lights aren't able to get a good charge. With fog and gray days there is always beauty to be seen.....frozen drops of fog suspended in action of the tips of pine needles. Makes the trees look like they are decorated in pearls. Very pretty!

Finally, a photo of my spinner's flock enjoying breakfast "buffet" style. Every now and then I like to feed them out in pasture like this. They end up spreading bits of hay over the winter grass giving it a bit more protection from the elements. I've noticed the grass has been coming in nicer in the spring since I've started doing this. Plus it's nice to see them all together. They are usually so spread out during the day.


  1. Nice to see a photo of your flock! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas, Tina! (Oh, my friend LOVES her birthday socks!)

  2. How wonderful to hear that the socks were well received. :) Glad you enjoyed the photo of my flock. It's hard to get a photo of them all together. They spend much of the day scattered between the two pastures (10 acres in all). Wishing you and your family a very happy holiday. May it be filled with lots of love, laughter, and joy.
