|Fall finally came to the Gulf Coast, if only briefly.|
|Though we've discovered lots of stuff on the property, these kumquats were still a happy surprise.|
|For the first time in about ten years, we got a Christmas tree!|
|Both of the cats found that they liked the tree too. That was fortunate!|
|I traveled with my nieces to Auburn, AL for South's BEST regional robotics competition. And, their little Catholic school fared fairly well in the competition. YAY St. Vincent de Paul!|
|I've gotten very little creative work done lately except for a couple of art swaps and a few resin pendants. I was stricken by the colors on this piece of deli paper I was using as a palette.|
|Though this fall and winter have been way warmer than usual, we have had a few cooler days here and there. We were invited to a friends to enjoy a pot luck and bonfire. Fortunately, it was one of those rare cold evenings.|
|The nieces came over for a few days this week and we made some easy Christmas treats. They were so, so easy!|
|It's been rainy and overcast here for DAYS upon days. Taking a walk around the property, I discovered more varieties of mushrooms than I even knew existed. It was amazing.|
There's been all that and more going on the past several weeks. I do apologize for my absence and hope to be getting back on the ball. The end of the year is near, and each new day is a new start.
I had a wonderful Christmas yesterday and am looking forward to second Christmas with my in-laws tomorrow. How have the holidays been treating you?
