Day 321 - Sis

Halloween candy, yep still here.  Lisa says no one will eat it at her job, okay but there are two people here who will and neither should.;-

Day 321 - Lisa

Woke up to my mama cooking pancakes (thank you) and did my sister's arrival countdown.  Twelve more days and she will be here for a four day visit.  Her first time at our home and during the holidays.  Woohoo.  We have a few things planned for the weekend but mostly just relaxing and visiting.

Day 320 - Sis

Seems we have an eager early bird plant here.  November 2nd when I put these bulbs in the pot I was hoping to see them in early February!

Day 320 - Lisa

All I can think about today is that tomorrow I get to sleep in and have my kitty lay next to me, well until I move a body part and she attacks it.

Day 319 - Sis

So maybe that's why you should cover your plants when the temperature drops overnight.  Have to hope this Hostas Patriot comes back in the spring.

Day 319 - Lisa

Having worked three holiday seasons at Hallmark in my teens before the huge Black Friday craze and knowing how stressful that was, I can only imagine today's debacle.  Well, I do know as my mom and aunt were both employed at Target.  I will not participate in Black Friday.  I've signed all the online petitions for Target and WalMart employees asking for no early hours on Friday morning.  Can we just have the whole Thursday to enjoy with our families?  There are plenty of days between Friday after Thanksgiving and Christmas to get your sales $ Mr. Retailer!

Day 317 - Sis

This clock belonged to my late husband's Nan, (maternal grandmother). When she passed and his mother went through Nan's household items, that were packed away, this was among them.  Terry's mother didn't want it and neither did he but I loved it and the retro look.  I convinced my husband that it would look great in his garage and that's where we had it.  It was mass produced between 1954-1959 and as you can see, has a cord.  I want to put it up in the garage here but since there is only one electrical outlet, will have to buy a surge board.  If you like you can go to and view many vintages clocks from the General Electric Co.

Day 317 - Lisa

I wonder what she is thinking?  Books tell me she's just thinking how can I catch that bird or eat that bug but when I see her so still and her eyes looking so far away I wonder if we really know?

Day 316 - Sis

Little tree in the neighbor's yard is losing it's leaves another sign of the season.  Wonder how long before it stands naked to all?

Day 316 - Lisa

I look at this tree each morning when I wake.  It still has leaves on it.  Another two weeks and it'll be bald.  It's been beautiful watching the leaves make their transformation from green to orange to gold.

Day 315 - Lisa

Denis you do have a way with words.

Day 315 - Sis

When I entered my bedroom last night, this is what I found.  Ahhh, since my dog sleeps at the end of the bed I wasn't prepared for that body part to be this close to my head. I don't know what the reason was for oneeya to change her sleep location, although it did make me think it was time to rotate the mattress. Stripped the bedding, rotated the mattress and when I was putting the clean bedding on, the official house bed testing cat came in to check my work. Thankfully she approved and oneeya is at the end of the bed again.
