“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

Christmas Eve Eve

 Today we had rain, sleet, sun and snow.

 I was amazed to see how much water had been absorbed in the big pasture (that was totally flooded yesterday morning).

 Around 11 I drove down to Weggies to get the rest of the food I need for tomorrow night's dinner.  Gary went out to start cleaning up the remains of the willow tree.  When I got home, Scott's truck was in the driveway and 99% of the debris was cut up and stacked.
 With two of them working, it was a done deal in under an hour!  Thanks Scott!

This afternoon I made Swedish meatballs and attempted to get organized.

Chores at 5.

At 6:30 we arrived at Pam and Greg's for a Christmas Eve Eve Dinner.  Nice to spend some time with Pam's Mom...our good friend Sally, and many other folks from the neighborhood.
What a meal!

 You would have loved taking a tour of this beautiful home.

 Excellent food and great chatter.

 Home by 11.  The pups were waiting.

And to all, a good night.


  1. What a nice party! The 23rd is definitely my favorite day of the year. Merry Christmas!

  2. How festive and cozy looking. It is bone chilling here. -12 air temp.
    I am not looking forward to chores this morning before daybreak.

    Have a beautiful day.

  3. Wishing you and your family and critters a very Merry Christmas!
