WOW! I REALLY can't believe it's going to be 2010 in a few hours! Time is going... so fast. So, my goal for the coming year is... to enjoy every, single minute! To treat this life I've been given...with respect... Meaning, healthy choices in all areas, and making More time with Family and Friends. Being 'so very busy' is a bad excuse to neglect living a fun, creative and wonderful life. My Motto... "Live Life Creatively"and "SMILE" :-)
Someone got Creative with GusGus. Here are a few cute pictures of him. We've been too busy to get to the groomer, so my husband trimmed his bangs, and Jilly gave him a ponytail. He seems to like it.
I wish a loving, fun,exciting and very HAPPY 2010 to you all!!!!!!!!!!!!! Deb
I have a new painting to share. I'm not sure why, maybe because it's so cold here, but she reminds me of a snow angel. I'm working on a little 2" X 2" that should be finished today...a tiny fox. Well, I'm off to the Espresso shop... I hope everyone has a great day!
I think the last time we had weather this cold, 8 degrees one morning, I was in High School. It's been a while! Last night was the worst of the worst, however, when it started to rain. We left the coffee shop around 5:45 and the roads were solid ice. It all went pretty well, until we got close to home. We live in a very hilly forest...and we slid sideways, and it seemed' every other ways' down that first steep hill. Oh My! Thanks to my husband's quick thinking we did get home safe, but I'm not going back out until the ice is gone! So, today Jilly Bean was closed, and I made Blueberry Scones.
I hope everyone is staying safe and warm this weekend! Deb
I must share this very happy picture, of this very happy guy...Rudy Farcus. (The girls named him Farcus from the movie, "A Christmas Story". Farcus had yellow eyes.) I must admit, it does fit his personality. He is a funny guy!!! He's always smiling and looking for fun.
I love decorating for Christmas! I can't say I had a lot of help this year, but I did have some company. I call them my Supervisors...they watch while I do the work. Oppea decided to take a little rest on the tree skirt I left on the coffee table, after inspecting the tree. While Rudy watched me arrange the Christmas Village, and when I wasn't looking...he hid inside the box. Gus and Rory watched for a while, but decided if food isn't involved...they'd take a nap.
Jilly Bean Espresso is ready for the Holidays! I couldn't get the camera to capture the homey feeling we have inside, but here is the camera's view of our decorations. It's been so cold here, in the 20s, and predicted to be 15 degrees with some snow soon. So it really feels like Christmas! It's an exciting time of year! I hope everyone has fun, and enjoys the anticipation!
