On Sunday, Dec. 30th we are happy to hear that 3 more of our blogger friends have packed up (or are ready to) and hit the road for the southwest. That makes 5 over the last week or so. That is great news! We wish them all safe travels and warm, clear sunny skies as they head to their destinations. Hoping to see most of them during the busy January season.

Bill and I woke with a heavy heart though since we have a friendship hovering in the balances of destruction. All from silly misunderstandings and misperceptions. We’re hoping to patch things up so we can all pick up where we left off and move forward. Life is too short for things like this to get in the way. I was up at 6:40 and Bill soon after. It was still dark until 7:10 when I headed out.

Our indoor thermometer was reading 63F so I bumped the fireplace up and even tapped the furnace to come on for a cycle. The outdoor temperature was 44F so I slipped an extra layer on my arms for my walk. The pink wisps of clouds across the sky were pretty and a photo just doesn’t justify it at all, but I tried. I met Loree and Freddy at one point, close enough to say good morning and saw George off in the distance making his rounds of the park too.
When I returned, I made our morning coffee and tea and read a few blog posts. At 8:30 I opened a package of Pillsbury cinnamon buns and put them in the oven while frying up bacon and eggs. There are 8 in a pack and that is just enough to share with everyone. This has been my plan since we bought them, I was just waiting for the right day. Happy Sunday!
Bill did dishes while I delivered them door to door.
|They look yummy, don't they?
Our friends were delighted with the morning snack. I hopped in the shower and when I came out, Bill was doing some more organizing in his ‘tackle’ box. Clemson was you know where. I decided to take my bike up to the library and put some pieces in the puzzle for an hour. We’d plan the afternoon when I got back.

|Clemson was very busy too
|Rob was also working on his tool/tackle box
|And Pat puts the last 8 pieces in
|Bill got his drone out this afternoon too
|Now, I'm more organized too
|Maybe bill's tackle box was kind of for me too!

We offered to host Happy Hour today since we had lots of sunshine and the rotation had come first circle. I read my book outside in the hot sun for the hour until everyone joined us. Conversation ensued until just before 5 the fun ended.

Now that is genuine 'happy'

Bill found a movie that we both agreed on and we settled in for the evening. I’m really getting hooked on the J.A. Jance book I’m reading so I read during commercials before I got too tired.

This has been another good day and the best part of it was when we heard from our friends and have made arrangements to see them in a couple of days. We are so glad they feel the same way about getting together. I hope you have had an equally great day.
