It's been a busy holiday season. Managed to get the cookie exchange organized and had a great time. Ended up with 10 friends and 9 dozen cookies. My fav ... Melissa's cookies.
We had a somewhat formal holiday dinner with a dozen close friends. I always wanted to do this and this year I finally found the time to get it done. It was outdoors in our patio area. It was a cool evening but not cold. Served beef roast, garlic mash potatoes and saute'd green beans. It was a success and I will do it again. The table looked great.

The boys are gone and it's way too quite around here. I've been going through some of our photos and decided to post a couple. We had fun this day, driving the desert. I found that Colby has quite the camera eye. He used a film camera and I used my digital. His photos were impressive. After they left I have some free time so I made some soldered artwork. I used photos of MJ's baby. I'll post one so you can see how they came out. I really like making them. Gotta work on Crystal's (my niece) 21st Birthday gift. I need to mail it on Monday!! I'll post it after her bday so not to give out the surprise.

Boys (nephews) for the summer and whoever said boys and girls are the same are so wrong. Boys don't like to "shop" they like to get their stuff and go home. Boys like to eat. Boys like loud music!!! Boys like just about anything LOUD. Boys can be lazy or should I say they have this crazy idea that housework is "woman's" work!!! Boys don't care if they have to wear the same teeshirt two or maybe three days in a row. On the other hand, they are less drama, no fighting over the bathroom, and it's okay not to have to go to the mall for the fourth time in one day!

My dad is in town and helping me with some of my projects. Today he made us his famously good refried frijoles!! YUM He dug out the sidewalk and getting ready for the gravel and edging. Tomorrow we'll finish digging and work on leveling out soil around the house. Work was tough today. Tough to stay focus when so many voices and conversations going around you. Dinner was good, brother came by and met up with several friends. Happy Valentine's Day to everybody....a good day! Flowers and all.
