Happy New Year

Isn't this cute. My SIL gave it to me for Christmas. It's a little skating village. The skaters were whirrling around at the time I shot the photo and look a little blurred. I really love it. Also, I managed to take a pic in the evening with low lighting not using my flash and making everything look cool not washed out. I love my new Canon.

Apparently, going through 12 months of my blathering on my blog will take a little longer than I imagined. So, I just took a few more pics with my wonderful camera. Some of them are too dark, I should have lit the fireplace in the living room to make it look really nice...but we used up all the wood at Christmas. Or I could have put turned on a lamp or two...but I didn't, I wanted to see what my camera could do without blurring.... so if you can't see anything, you are older than me, because I can still see some of it..but only because I know where everything is...ha!

For those that have eye myself...but won't admit it....this is the far side of the living room. The tree is beside the front window and the wall unit is on the right displaying my more than abundant Christmas artifacts. Most of them given to me by my wonderful SIL Joan, but you can't see them because I am testing my camera.

Here is a crooked pic of the wall unit housing my artifacts, which you can't see because I am testing my camera.

This was taken in the family room, don't double click.. if you do will see the duct tape on our ancient lazy boy chairs.

Pic taken from upstairs....I finally turned on a lamp, because I didn't know how much more my Canon could take. Can you see Penny Loafer sitting in her "heated" doggie bed by the window. Oy.

Okay, I was really pushing it here, I forgot to turn the lamp on behind Santa...but if you look really hard he is there.

Just an overview from upstairs..... a dark one. Okay, my experiments are over. Thanks for joining in the darkness.

We aren't doing anything special tonight. Homemade pizza, and will probably be in bed by the time the ball drops..our time. Just the way I like it.

Now, I'm off the scour my old blogs.

Happy New Year Everyone...thanks so much for stopping in.

I'm older than you (but not much, hahaha) but I could see the pictures (sort of) and they are lovely!!

Happy New Year, Joanie to you and Gord. I'm off to bed; sort of hate to see this year end for obvious reasons, but have hope for a better year next year.
