I am enjoying my Holiday time !! Had the wonderful pleasure of seeing the new TinTin movie with my grandsons, their parents and aunt. All seven of us in those plastic 3-D glasses in a MultiPlex theater. My first 3-D. The movie was such a heart warming experience. My sons grew up on TinTin and now my grandsons are having the experience too!!
We tried the Cranberry Pear White Balsamic vinegar for this salad. Yummy!!
I was so impressed by these buttons my daughter-in-law made here last summer in my studio. And since she isn't a knitter, she bought a sweater and sewed them onto it. They look so perfect there.
One of my grandsons goofing around in the silly optical glasses we got for him. He is into being a rock star at age 10!!
Our Tree of Life. This is a rubber tree that I have had for many years. It grew so large that it was circling our dining area ceiling and was held up by many props. Finally this summer we had to take it down. I was so sad to see it go but it was getting to be too much of a cleaning challenge. Gradually I pruned back the branches and was finally left with a three foot high stump with just one tiny branch that had a couple of leaves on it. I decided to re pot it, put it outside and see what would happen. By the end of September there were tiny buds all over the trunk. They kept getting bigger. When it got too cold for it to be outside anymore, we brought it in and put it back in its old spot. Before long the leaves began to sprout. Once it was cold enough for us to begin heating the house, it grew even more leaves. This is a very recent picture of how wonderfully it is doing. Our Tree of Life Full of New Growth. What a joy!! What an affirmation of the spirit to stay alive!!
