For the fun of it?!

Anyone that knows me knows I'm addicted to the apps. Yes I said it. It's out in the open. They say the first step is admitting a problem.
I have apps for everything but my favorite app currently is the Nike app that records my walk/run progress.
I never take a walk without it and if it fails while I'm walking ( which it has done) I am crushed.
I have logged over 170 miles since I started using it in sept and am looking forward to logging 500 in the coming year.
Yesterday I went outside to say goodbye to a friend who had stopped for coffee. The weather was just above freezing. Sooo nice after the deep freeze. I thought I would walk down to the end of the driveway.
I was enjoying myself so much I ended up walking over a mile before It stopped bring fun and started to seem like a workout.
So I had to walk home again and all this time without an app to record my progress.
Yup app free just like the good ok days. No photo with this post cause as I stated above I was sans app.
The world she is a changin'

Morning on the porchstep

How lucky am I that I only have to go out on my step to see such beauty.
Many times I go out on the step without a camera. Scenes like this one send me running back for it.

Christmas gratitude

Christmas day spent in a warm house full of heavenly scents, surrounded with love and laughter. I was happily cementing the days events in my mind as we drove the boys home. We drove behind this man on a bicycle and I hoped that he had been spending his day with loved ones. And felt so blessed that it wasn't me on that bike in -30c weather. My prayers tonight will be that those less fortunate will be touched by the spirit of Christmas. Merry Christmas my loves.

While looking for stuff to finish up a project I came across this little needlepoint canvas that I did a few years ago. Such a pretty little piece, 4x4 approx. It would be a shame not to do something with it.... But what? Any ideas?

Happy December First

Woohoo! Twenty days til the first day of winter, I guess I should get out and enjoy the fall weather. Seems like the only outside I get these days is when I bundle up to shovel snow two or three times a day. Stay warm my friends.
