This concludes my 5th year of blogging….. can’t believe it’s been this long already!
Wishing everyone a great start into the New Year and all the best for 2013!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 25,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 6 Film Festivals
When it hurts to look back
And you’re scared to look ahead
You can look beside you
And I’ll be there…
I was dreaming of a white Christmas, and my dream came true….well, close enough anyway 😉
It started out as pouring rain on Christmas morning. Temperatures were around 44 F when we left for Oklahoma to spend Christmas with family, and fell to about freezing. The rain slowly turned to snow during the drive north, and by the time we reached Greg’s brother’s house, it was all sleet and very windy and cold.
We left a little sooner than planned to go back home, because the weather continued to get worse, and the drive from Durant to Dallas took us three hours instead of the normal hour an a half. We saw plenty of cars spun out in the median because they refused to slow down. (Every car that passed us going much to fast, I waved to and said “see you in the ditch!” LOL)
Our little town got enough snow to cover the grass completely and it looked so pretty, even in the dark. This morning I could barely wait for the sun to come up so I could bundle up and introduce my iPhone to the snow.
I think my next purchase will be “texting gloves” to keep my hands warm and still be able to use my iPhone. Two more minutes in the cold, and you could have snapped my fingers off like icicles 😉

Wishing all my blogging friends a beautiful Christmas!
Merry Christmas to all who (like us) celebrate tonight!
Just two that can be found on my tree this year.
I received a Christmas card from a friend recently. I took the card out of the envelope and placed it into the basket with the other Christmas cards that we had received, and put the envelope on my desk because I wanted to save the stamp for a craft project that I have planned.
I picked up the envelope, and it felt slightly heavier than just paper… like there was something inside. I opened it up, and sure enough, there was a coin in the corner. Very odd. I had no idea why, and what it was doing in there. Of course I contacted my friend, who had NO idea how the coin got into the envelope…
Maybe it’s a Lucky Mystery Coin?
My lucky shot! I literally tried for hours to get one of these ladybugs just as they were about to take off. This was the one and only time I (kinda sorta, almost) succeeded.
