merry, merry

Gifts of time and love 
are surely the basic ingredients of 
a truly merry Christmas.
~Peg Bracken 

I don't think I can say it better than that.
merry, merry!
happy, happy!

still a thrill

When I no longer thrill to the first snow of the season, I'll know I'm growing old. 
~Lady Bird Johnson  

We had a wee flurry of snow the other day. It was still a thrill to be sure!!

What are you doing on this penultimate Sunday of 2012?

We're grabbing a sweet moment of quietude after a very busy week. Reading and blogging with steaming coffee at hand ... the fur-kids are curled up and snoozing ... and musical playlists are shuffling along.
Just as it should be ... on the penultimate Sunday of 2012. 

I hope you're able to grab a wee spot of quiet this day, too!

time enjoyed

Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
~Marthe Troly-Curtin  

What is your favorite way to waste enjoy time?

Walking around the house with hope of capturing an image of Keeley.
Think snipe hunt.

Jiggers. Somebody spotted the goodies!

Did someone say goodies are were in the house??

Yep...the real thing this time!! 
I won a wee wager and ymmy donuts were my prize...of course a photoshoot came to mind...
...any excuse to make a decadent treat more so!

No amount of chocolate and treats eaten alone are as good as when shared with a friend...
...even a furry one.

There is no delight in owning anything unshared.

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
~J.R.R. Tolkien  

When it's too dark to play outside, I make sure there is plenty of play going on inside!

A friend turned me on to decorating cheerios to look like donuts. 
Perfect portion control...except for all the extra chocolate ganache!

What are you going to do for play and merriment this weekend?
I hope you have a blast! xo

A vocabulary of truth and simplicity will be of service throughout your life.
~Winston Churchill  

It's rainy and dark outside.
I'm playing with the camera inside.
Knitting, too.
There's been some snuggling with the kitties :)
Will return soon.

What do you do to "lighten" these wet, dark days?
