Here is a leaf my nephew gave me this afternoon. He told me he brought it to me because of the beautiful color. Boy who knows what his Aunt Lisa likes.
Mike finalized his new job and will be starting soon. I thank all of you who kept us in your thoughts during this tough time.
We have a few more days here in Atlanta with my brother in law and his children. This may be our last Christmas with Uncle Dan and we are making the best of it.
Merry Christmas my loyal followers.

Here is the completed nest...I love it...I just hope it's not too orange for its new home.
The nest made me think about...why nests?
They seem to have started when Zackery left for college and Hannah entered high school.
It feels good in all the rooms I put it in.
Mike and Nan doing some baking
These were peanut butter with a chocolate kiss on top. The other cookies or I should say treats...Kalochkies 3 different flavors, Macaroons, Chocolate covered Macaroons and I suppose I'll mention the baklava that he made us few weeks back.
Like I've said in a few posts back...I bring the color and Mike brings the yummy.
Hannah is so proud of her sign she made last week at school with friends.
Big tight hugs all around

He was just there and I love this painting so I added him in tonight's post.
This is on a cardboard box that my kitchen cabinets came in 3x4 ft.
He hangs in the kitchen with the other Omo ppl.
Here's that corner again : )
If you look closely you will see my Mr. Pe Joe under the covers on the sofa.
The wind has been blowing and he feels safer under the covers.
I see the colors here are not as vibrant as they are in person.
My computer wasn't letting me do any adjusting.
Chunk watching the wild animals outside...prolly thinking back on the days when he was all by his lonesome in that milking barn in Vermont.
He seems very happy and content amongst the art stuff.
We were in Rockford IL all day Saturday for Jr. Bulls
Go Bulls Go...HUH!
Three friends on DEFENSE!
I happen to see these yellow drops of paint on my sewing machine today and knew that this machine was here to stay.
The mail came the other day and this was in my box.
An Omo book! from my girl Suzanne...now I can see the Omo ppl right in my hands.
and a few ATC's from Dawn : ) She is my ATC idol. Thank you Ms. Dawn B.
I thought it interesting to see my thread is pretty close to my paint colors.
Chunk being his adorable self...he seems happiest sleeping on top of everything : )
Chunk again...he is just our doll baby...funny how Mike & I are with our animals now that our children are a little older.
Cooper waiting for me to make Hannah's lunch, he knows I will give him some turkey and he is there waiting for me every day. Cooper has been with us several months now and seems to be finding his place amongst our silly household. At first I thought he was to serious for us and I was looking for someone to play with Chunk...months later, Cooper seems to be a good uncle figure to Chunk. He tolerates Chunk jumping on him and biting his ear and wrestles him to the floor. Too funny.
Mr. Pe Joe aka...Peter Joseph or some even call him Peter Joe and you never have to call him twice to jump in bed with you...he says "I'm a cuddler" and climbs in.
He does happen to have a piece of drool on his snout in this photo and he says to tell you all...he has big lips and does his best to keep the slime off of the Misses walls.
Matilda Rae, our black lab isn't feeling well and asked not to be photographed today.
I hope you have enjoyed your time here : )
I wish you all Happy Holidays
and will check in when I can.
I have just a few more days to finish the nest painting for Cindy.

I wonder how I ever am able to create in such disaray
This canvas is 32 X 32
There is a painting underneath that I got tired of and decided to give it a new look and changed the background, then it hung for almost a year till I decided a bird would work.
I am no where near done, but this is where I'm at with it at this point, I think I may like it better in red.
One of my favorite coffee mugs.
Monday will be two weeks of putting Truvia in my coffee instead of regular sugar. I love sugar! on everything! but my jeans are getting a bit too tight and thought I could try to give up a few things.
Hannah & cousin Eleanor making holiday bags from the Cloth~Paper~Scissors magazine.
El's first time using a sewing machine...she loved it!
I hope all of you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I am off to make some Christmas gifts.
Have a great day
