Can you believe it? One week from now Christmas will be over and a new year will begin one day short of two weeks from now? What a remarkable thing time is. It is rushing us into 2009 faster than lightning can strike!

Purple seems to be the best color for the season to me. Isn't it supposed to be the color of royalty? Very fitting for celebrating the birth of a King.

The saying is "Heavy is the head that wears the crown" But I fear they were being polite because it is a much lower portion of me that is heavy from all the cafe goodies.

Soilsandup, I fear I have gotten so heavy that I crushed the throne and will need to rejoin the common folks in the more sensible common chairs. May I be so presumptuous as to join you?

Fear not Highness, I have cleared a table and brought your royal jingle boots so that you may commence The Excersicing of The Excess. A one anna two anna three... shake that heine, firm and finey, buns of steel if you stop whining...
Come on now, there are too many goodies to sample and we will not be able to crawl to the table if our phyiques are overly ample. Lookie here, I took out my nose ring and and looped it thru a hook in the door jamb so we can do pull ups. Of course, I cleaned it first.

Terri, I think I'll have a snowball. I'm happy, so I reckon that makes it happy hour. hehehe
Lovely treats BTW. Snapdragons are one of my favorite garden plants. I usually put some around the roses to fill in space.
Ok, since we are on a bit of a healthy kick and a purple phase as well, I made juice- beets, purple carrots, acai berries, pomegranete and a little ginger to give it zip.

Star, good luck with pics and I hope you have a wonderful experience.

Oh Elle, I can't imagine being that cold. Bundle up and keep the heat on. We don't want you frozen until the spring thaw! I found a local little homestead farm that sells rabbit all cleaned and dressed. $6.50 a pound. It seems a bit pricey but I am going to pick up a couple of fryers for our Christmas dinner since neither of us has had any in many years but reading about yours has my mouth watering for them.

Mmmmm...I'm on my way. lol And I'll bring a jug of acai berry juice. It is quite yummy.
To answere your question about it, this fruit comes from Central America, grows on a type of palm tree and is usually mixed with other friut juices such as blueberry of pomegranete.
Unfortunately, it has fallen under the spell of being a new fad that some claim will do all sorts or bull&#!%, weightloss, cure cancer, ect. It does have some health benefits and tastes really good, so check it out at any health food store.

Oooo Terri, I'd love a cuppa. Thank you. Just the thing in the afternoon slump. It's one of those grey days when all you want to do is snug into a warm place with a book and a kitty, lots of candles, chocolate to nibble, DW to nibble later. hehehe

Elle, stay warm. It doesn't take long to get too frosty in those temps. But I guess you know that.

Yum! Thanks Terri. Are those cinammon sticks? Beautiful arrangement and I love the top piece.

Not much going on today, cold as a popcicle, quiet outside like Sunday mornings are, yay. In spring, the windows are open and we can hear squirrels fussing at everyone at the seed tray on the porch, hear wrens and cardinals declairing rutt, woodpeckers tapping out their hunger into trees. My sweetie and I will sit and listen for quite some time. It is a wonderful thing to share stillness and the talk of wild things.
I like the convenience of city living, but find it interesting that in doing so, the drive to be among green things becomes unbearable. I think this says a lot about us, that we should remember that we are made of dirt and stone and water, indulge ourselves in a creekwalk once in awhile. OK, I've gone on enough here. lol Cabin fever.

Going to see my Dad today. his b-day is very soon, so while I have a chance, I'll give him his goodie bag full of books and sweets. Luckily, he's easy to buy for, I pick out things I like. Two peas in a pod.

Have a good one y'all

Yoohoo, oh Woman of Weeds... I just came across a plant from your neck of the woods, ptilotus exaltatus "joey", and am wondering if you have any experience with it. It's a new one here, very pretty and interesting. Seems hardy enough for drought conditions , but I have no clue how it would do here in the hot and humid South. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Y'all might want to check this one out too. It looks like it would be cool in arrangements. Park Seed has seeds and I did see 2 UK sites that carried it as well.

Hi Plantgeek, sounds like you had a lovely relaxing day! The only wild things we see are squirrels,birds and foxes sometimes! I have a tiny garden in London, also an allotment to grow veggies and flowers. I'm so lucky to have some soil to play in, there's nothing quite like getting dirt from the garden under your fingernails!!
Wish your Dad a Happy Birthday from all your mates at the cafe in cyber space lol
Thanks, glad you like the cinnamon sticks. They are 1 metre long, never seen them so huge!
I thought we could keep them at the cafe, they might come in handy for switches if anyone gets out of order. lol

Have a good day everyone!

Yummers once again Terri. Thanks buckets.

We are as ready as we are going to be, swept up a few hairballs, stocked up groceries, movies, time-off and we are now ready to hunker down away from all the frantic madness.
I've got my sweetie, my books, my critters and plants, paper to scibble on and a too-often wicked imagination, so I don't really need anything else. Except maybe chocolate...and tea...and warm booties.. and... lol

And Terri, how do you know that I haven't been bad. hehehe It just hasn't made the papers yet.

Here are some praline covered pecans. Warning: these are highly addictive.

Chillin' is strictly enforced here. lol
I knew how quickly the pecans would go, so I brought a whole case. Indulge away. And as a bonus, here is a fresh batch of hazlenut truffles and some big ol' bourbon balls. Goodness gracious!

Spider wove a huge doily for a table and I spray painted it purple to keep with our color theme. That was so sweet of her. I'll have to put a nice politician in her stocking.

I have a rabbit story that Elle will especially find interesting. My brother went to a local rabbitry to get dinner, When the owner, whom he knew, brought out a huge albino bunny, he placed it in my brother's arms and it nuzzled into his neck, then peeped up at him with its pink little eyes. Well, my bro didn't have the heart to do anything to it except find it a home. Incidently, the bunny had numbers tattooed inside an ear- obviously someones pet.
Can you say set up boys and girls? I knew that you could.

Hope everyone is well and warm and full of chocolate.

PG - truffles are my absolute favorite chocolates. I will try to leave some for the rest of the group. That is a heart warming rabbit story. My daughter took the three feral kittens (now very much lap kitttens) to be neutered today and found that one of them that she thought was a boy is actually a girl...and is now, considering adopting that one. I tell you, the longer we keep them, the harder it is to let them go.

Terri - I think PV may stand for Puerto Vallarta - in which case Candee should be nice and warm down there. Christmas eve dinner is at my house - I got some garlands on the stairway. Made my Christmas tree - but still have to decorate it. But, I figure I have until 4 PM tomorrow. The tree is about 4 ft tall, a little big for the cafe tables, but it could be placed by the door.

The mountains around us have a fresh dusting of snow and the sun is shining for the first time in a week or more. I woke to the sound of the neighbors little one laughing merrily as he discovered how to peddle his shiny new tricycle and was peddling after his big sister with all his might. Stepping out onto the front porch I could see two little boys running along with a new soccer ball traveling back and forth between them and their father. The excited yips of a new puppy chasing after them and nipping at the ball created more laughter.

I breathed it all in and thought of my own children when they were young and of my grandchildren, far off in other areas when the phone rang. I answered it to discover that my kids had gotten together on a conference call so they could sing Merry Christmas to me all together from 2 different states... They were all off key, but it was just what I needed to make the morning right.

To any others out there that may be alone this holiday, take the time to enjoy the day in whatever manner that presents itself, you can feel the peace and joy around you if you are open to it. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Oh it warms my heart to be home and hear your wonderful holiday stories. Zany I saw so many families there with their children spending the day together and talking abou going on the canopy tour or fishing or just fun playin at the pool. Santa came to the pool on Christmas day and had candies for all the children. Steve and I were treated with towels made into swans full of rose petals for our annive on 12/24 in the room and some choc coverer strawberries, will post those later. But we are home safe and sound, stopped to see Ruth my MIL on our way from the airport this morn for a few hours and now just trying to catch up.
We were able to talk a few minutes to our children and grandbabies on Christmas morn. Too bad that Tim and Amy and Eva were stranded at home in Cleveland due to illness and could not go to Christmas at Amy's family in Florida as planned, but sure they will be able to visit them soon
Elle looks like you got quite a wonderful holiday your way well as everyone else.
I did get a note from karmaplace and she is doing okay and is thinking of everyone although it is a hard time for her.
So glad to be home and will tell you about all the table dancin plantgeek and terri soon as I rest up from all of it!
Meantime, spent a lotta time with parrots and iguana so be wary!

I am glad to hear that karmaplace is ok. I hope things get easier for her.

My brother came over and spent the evening with us working out the details of what he has arranged with my Mom for after he leaves next month and I reassured him that we will be here to help her with the everyday things like shopping and such just like we did before he came to help with my Dad. Bless his heart he is like a kid looking forward to retiring and becoming an expatriot in the Phillipines and like an old lady worrying about leaving us. LOL I just want him to go and enjoy himself. He did his share and has more than earned it.

Welcome back Candee, lovely to see you and Steve looking happy and relaxed like you had a good time. Father Christmas by the pool sounds great! Love what you did to the picture, very arty.
So happy you are back safe and sound!
Zany, How is Bob? has the swelling gone down on his toe yet? Glad your brother has decided to go back, good luck to him. My brother is looking for another job in the Bahamas, he loved it and wants to go back!! If he does, this time I will save up and go there on holiday for sure!!
You'll all have to come and meet up with me in Nassau!!
Dianne, hope the Christmas eve dinner went well, would love to see your tree and garlands when you get time!
elle, 3-5 eggs everyday is great!

I've eaten so much in the last couple of days, sure I've put on half a stone LOL

He shall go knowing that family is well taken care of and he should relax and enjoy himself! Hope you had a great Christmas and that Bob is doing better every day with your loving care.
Terri, I got an upgrade to PSP and it includes this fab painting techniques. As for Nassau, that is one place Steve and I plan to go and would love to know if you plan to go, you just never know about us LOL!
elle, it is about time you got some time off from work. Now don't spend all your time working make sure you have some time to just sit back and put your feet up.
It was actually 60 degrees here when we got home yesterday and again today. So believe it or not I started up the riding mower and cleaned up leaves and then cut back a few more things in the garden. Wish it would last, but least happy for a few more days of warmth!
Dianne, are you now busy planning for the New Year festivities at your home as well?

Plantgeek, hope you close by and getting ready for the new year. I may not make the party as Tasha and Abygail are coming for the weekend? I will try to pop in least for a drink or 2 and a table dance with somebody - Dianne do you do any table dancin??? Steve can still dj for us but he has been falling asleep a bit early these days so perhaps Steven can come over and take over for him if need be.

Terri, I finally go around to putting a few things in the vase that Tasha and Mike got for me. Some holly, pieris and Harry Lauder.

It is a lazy rainy day here today and I have vowed to remain in my house coat with my feet up. LOL... as soon as the breakfast dishes are clean, the floors mopped and the laundry done...

Bob's foot is healing nicely and the swelling has remained under control. He has to return to San Francisco Monday/tuesday for them to add another layer of skin to the bottom and have the stitches out of the top. I am gonna miss the stitches. They give him a cute little Frankenstien look. If everything continues to improve he should be back on his feet and out of that wheel chair in about 2 months or less. By then we should have a time frame for his return to work.


Candee, what version of PSP are you using? Tim has promised to get me the latest and greatest in a couple of months and I am pretty jazzed about that.

elle, simple finger food sounds perfect to me. enjoy your time off work!

Woodsy will be flat out taking coats and greeting everyone, does she even do coats???LOL

Pleased to hear you are chillaxing around the house today Zany, you deserve it!

She is a sport, but let me tell you she got nothing for the holiday and is not to charmed by me at the moment. Perhaps you can smooth talk her Terri.
So glad to hear you talk about Bob's return to work, then he is truly on the mend. Hope his work is not too tiring as you don't want a relapse for overdoing.
Plantgeek still eating chocolates??? Surely you haven't fallen and can't get up?.
Sue are you in the outback without any facilities or electric???

I just upgraded to the PSP Photo X2 Ultimate and it is outta this world and not that expensive as that dreamworks which is off the charts. I think if you are just getting the program it is about $79 and if an upgrade about 59. But let me tell you just google it and you will be amazed and they do have a free trial.

Oh deviled eggs!! is that with curry in the centre?
I was thinking maybe Woodsy might need a bit of help, I have someone in mind who might show up on the night!
I was wondering about your vase from Puerto Rico, you did mention it, but this is the first time we are seeing it right? It looks beautifully hand crafted?
My girls gave me vases/containers. The one from Katie is a birdcage with tea and biscuits inside for our cafe she said Lol! The vase from Annie is a magic vase, it is flat until you fill up with water.
When my camera is charged I'll show you.
Have a good evening all!

Nice to see so much activity at the cafe!!!

So, Candee, is PV Puerto Vallarta that you just got back from? Looks like you and Steve had a great time. Lovely vase and arrangement. Have not heard of pieris flowers before - it does make a nice addition to arrangements.

Terri - some deviled eggs may have curry, but typically you cut the hard-boiled eggs in half, take the yolks out, mash it up with mayonnaise, and other spices as you like, and then fill the hole back up with that fluffy mixture. Looking forward to seeing your new vases.

Elle - I did not expect the chickens to be giving any eggs in this cold weather. How wonderful that you have enough to feed a group with your deviled eggs.

Zany - what a great Christmas morning picture that you painted. A positive attitude makes all the difference in the world. Glad that Bob is recovering so well. Did you get your rabbit for Christmas dinner?

Terri - It is past Christmas and everyone is putting their stuff away, but since you asked about my tree...here are some photos. We used to buy live trees when the kids were little, but as they got older, and we start decorating for Christmas later and later, we decided to stop buying trees one year. Since I did not want to have to store an artificial tree, and I did want a tree of some kind to put presents under, I decided to make my own. Take one tomato cage, turned upside down and use a washer to "tie" the legs

Dianne what a unique idea for a tree. Now we have lots of tomato cages and lots of pine, so why didn't I think of that LOL! Because I can't think that is why. I was actually going on about the New Year and Tasha coming and then today went to the bank and realized that New Years eve is Wednesday, not Thursday. I was all prepared to celebrate here on thursday evening and then thought I must bow out cause of Tasha and Aby coming and now realize Steve and I are home alone!!! Well least until we come to the cafe with all of you.
elle, really don't give a second thought to your spelling, we can read every word. I too am surprised tha the hens are laying this cold time of year, why is that do you think?
Terri, you always have a new one for me, so your ivy is looking good.
I am still off work through the new year and perhaps amidst shampooing carpets tomorrow I can get outside and get some more decor for the holiday. It was sunny and 50 today, not sure what is in store.

Blue agave to use to make the tequila! Exotic plants??? Well, there were pansies LOL! Pitcher plant in the room in bloom with the pitchers and this one, not sure what it is?
There was a lot of lantana and bouganvillia as well.

I am not sure if I have anything for cocktails may have to give the supermarket a few $ just to do something special! We shall see.

If I understand correctly, Terri, Annie's birthday is on Wednesday, so she was born New Year's eve? What a great way to ring in the new year. Could you have held off and made her a New Year's baby??? though I imagine that was the last thing on your mind at that moment.LoL Is that -2 degrees in Celsius? Anything below 40 degrees F is cold to me, but with a bitterly cold wind, yes, staying indoors is the thing to do. Stay warm!!

Hi Dianne, Yes, I remember it well!!!! It was New year's eve morning about 7.30am when we phoned the Ambulance, guess what? there was an ambulance strike LOL! turns out they were still working for maternity, thank goodness.
Annie was born at 10.20am, so it was quite quick really! In those days you had to stay in hospital for 10 days . Dads were allowed to stay until 10pm. The hospital St Thomas' is opposite Big Ben, I remember the chimes at midnight and counting the New Year in with Annie!

Cake, who said cake? Happy birthday to Annie. May 19 be a great send off from the teenage years into the next phase. Cheers.

It seems that I'm the only one here with no kiddos- which suits me fine- I'm quite happy being an aunt. Load 'em up with gummy worms and glow-in-the-dark eyeballs and sit back to watch the fun. lol But, hats off to anyone that can raise a child successfully, let alone several.

28 degrees- brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr be sure to wear your Everwarm suit. Last Saturday, it was 72 here and has been unusually warm, but then it's going to get cooler once more. The weather here flops around like a fish, and it's no big thing to have 70 one day and snow the next. However, over the last few years, the fluctuations have been more dramatic and have occured more often. There seems to be a definite trend. Hmmm...could it possibly be due to global warming? (insert raised eyebrow and befuddled expresion here)

Our respite from winter will end tonight, down into the 30's with high winds. Better zip your zippers and butt up your buttons. Now where's my microwaveable booties.
Wow, I remember smoking in hospitals, which I did too ( and which I quit also, over 10 years ago). Isn't it peculiar how what is acceptable changes so drasticaly? We can be so black or white about things. Silly rabbits.

Attitude? Me, as a teenager? Hahahaha I still walk with a limp from the chip I carried on my shoulder. I think it is hard-wired into us when we get our hormones to make it easier for parents to toss out their kids into their own homes, easier for kids to want to get them. lol

So, for decorations, how 'bout we all wear strands of LIEKS. hehehe Multi-colored and sprinkled with sparklies. I collected buckets of whirly-gigs from the maple tree that we can let fly at the stroke of midnight.
I brought some music- The B-52's, Robert Plant and Allison Krauss, R. L. Burnside, Hound Dog Taylor, early Rolling Stones, Flock of Seagul... oops, how'd that get in there? It's not mine, really.

The sixties - I love that music. I was near the Haight-Ashbury area a couple of weeks ago, but did not get the chance to walk through it. By the time I went to Berkeley in the early 70's, much of the action had died down, but there were still lots of signs of hippieness. Telegraph Avenue was always humming with people selling their wares. I have a picture of myself with a granny dress of patchwork quilt somewhere..

.those were the days, my friend...
we thought would never end,
we sing and dance, forever and a day..

That was one of my favorite songs, full of hope and energy. But of course, I was a goodie-two-shoes back then and did not join in the sit-ins, love-ins, and whatever else was going on. The one advice I gave my kids as they went off to college was to have fun, and not just study...

I remember granny dresses and maxi-skirts, hip-huggers and hot pants. Ssssssss
Although I was too young to wear those things, I liked the look and feel of that era. One distinct memory was watching young people dance on TV, not on sugary American Bandstand, but on a local show. Those kids were filled with cool, the way they moved, dressed, never hamming into the camera. I was only 7, (circa 1968) but I sensed they knew something that parents didn't about being right with themselves. It was like they were above the BS, too hip to it all. I decided then and there that I wanted to go live with the hippies. But since I could not, I kept my transistor radio pressed close to my wee head. "I know it's only rock and roll, but I like it"

That's excellent advice Dianne. Never, ever forget to have fun.

Oh yeah, I loved the album Miles of Ailes. Joni's music has hip intelligence and truthfulness about it. And I can understand the lyrics. lol I went for years thinking Elton John said, on Benny and the Jets, "she's got electric boobs, her Ma has too", instead of "she's got electric boots, a Mohair suit".

Cheech and Chong...hehehe "my mama talka to me, try to tell me how to live, but I don't listen to her cause my head is like a sieve". I had that 45 single.

Remember blue jeans with patches sewed onto every square inch? I had a pair that I was forbidden to wear, so I chucked them out my bedroom window behind a bush, strolled innocently out the door and snuck around to collect my pair of blue jean cool to change into at a friend's house.

am a little sad and happy at the same time today - happy in that the first kitten got adopted this past Saturday, and the other two got adopted yesterday, but sad to see them leave. Can get mighty attached to them in 6-7 weeks. Here's a photo when we first got them - scared and huddled up in a corner.

So happy you found homes for the kittens, bet it was easy as they are cute as buttons. Window sneaking, guess you didn't live in a trailer like me with those jalousi windows hard to get out of LOL! I had to revert to just running away from home when I had something I really wanted to do. The troopers always found me though cause my dad was justice of the peace and he knew them all and they were always on the lookout for me and my trouble! Yep the good ole days.

So home you make it to some of the new year celebratons o the New Year thread. Guess Sue has had her bash and is waking up to the new day already in aussie land. As for Terri in London, perhaps we better get started as her new year will be in just a few more hours!

I fostered a cat once, she's still here 6 years later. lol
Wish I had the means to make a huge dent in the pet overpopulation problem, setting up snip clinics and such.

Candee, I packed my ditty bag a few times too. Didn't have much of a plan, mostly a determination to get the $#%@ out of Dodge. But I usuallly got ratted out, which was just as well for a kid with no money, no destination and a heaping pile of wishful thinking that a better life would fall magically into her scrawny lap. And it did after lots of work, loads of green tea. hehehe

Hey y'all, how about we start a tradition here at the cafe- we all sneak out the window into the new year wearing red hot pants, strands of lieks and whatever anyone else cares to throw into the mix. I think it would be a hoot!

Hi Zany - sorry you had to work so late. Are you still up? If so, a great big Happy New Year to you and definitely full of happy news.

Lots of goodies out at the New Year's cafe if you can get over there.
