i love this day! this is my favourite day of the year. yes, it is the shortest day, but it means that each day after it gets longer and a teeny bit closer to spring and sunshine.
this is what it looked like out my front door this morning
this is what it looked like outside my back door this afternoon. ha, you can see the pumpkin in my garden. im hoping that it will seed itself in the spring and the whole garden will be pumpkins this year.

i celebrated this day by finally getting a christmas tree. its not decorated yet but boner likes it. she is sitting so pretty. the other little cat, daddy cool is not so polite. she jumps in it !!
i celebrated my 48th birthday on december 16.... one candle in a little dish of chocolate mousse. i had a good day, altho at the time i thought, not much to write home about. on the other hand, its all about how you look at things. my kids are all off in other cities doing their lives.... as it should be. they all called me, 2 of them at midnight of the 15th!
this to me means ive done my "job" and all is well. i attended a resume workshop which indicates that change is coming..... i can embrace that. and i shared chinese food and chocolate mousse with my good friend pooch special k.
some of my presents : turquoise sequined jewelery box from my favourite pooch auntie
from pooch c, a tin of her famous shortbread cookies and a slab of her homemade christmas cake ( soaked in demerrera rum )
from my younger brother, ceramic travel mug ( with silicone lid ) and pomegranate green tea
i got cards and bottles of delicious beverages. the cards were from everyone, the beverages from my sweet brother
and, this gorgeous bag from my poochie daughters. http://oldnavy.gap.com/
o and i must not forget..... inside the bag was a stuffed white blood cell. there he is !! im really not sure how i have managed in my life this long without him.
and so i celebrated !
all it took was a little paradigm shift... thanks pooch ruby !! what more could a girl want !
