As much as I hate winter, it’s on its way. I wish we were getting ready to start February instead of December. Big sigh…
There’s not much happening here except work and more work, but I’m not complaining. However, it seems like the older I get the more difficult it is to do repetitive things for six hours at one time. I’m talking about the cheese demo I had on Friday. It’s now Sunday and my arms feel like they’re falling off and I feel like I did about a hundred sit-ups. I had to cut hard cheese wedges into small cubes. I bet I cut approximately 900 cubes of cheese with a pastry cutter. The only way to do this was to rock it back and forth and lean into it. I probably should have taken a big, sharp knife instead and will try that next time. Anyway, needless to say, after Wednesday and then Friday I’m glad to have a couple of days off. The holiday season is in full swing with shoppers.
Sunrise in the desert
A lonely bird surveys the desert
I managed to get this beautiful sunrise the other morning and also one of a lone bird sitting on a tree branch in the backyard. Then yesterday the storm clouds came in and I got these pics at sunset. Today it rained and then the sun came out but it’s a chilly 45 degrees right now with upper 20’s expected tonight. I’m not at all excited about that.
Storm clouds gather out back as the sun is setting
I’m not in the holiday spirit at all this year, but at least I got my ornaments and will get them in the mail in the morning. My sisters and I exchange them every year. We have quite a collection now.
