House sitting leads to some unexpected and memorable times in our lives!We had a sweet little celebration alone at my boss's house. When I arrived they had left me a beautiful tree with presents. So sweet and the lights twinkling at night were so lovely! As you can see, when LM arrived on Christmas morning, he got a royal greeting from Sammy, complete with a plea to throw the tennis ball!
You can see my what-looks-like-a-dead-possum fut coat behind me there. It was cold that day! I've had the coat for years and only need to take it out several times a year.
LM Loved his new mercury glass lamp for the table beside his living room chair.
This picture of Teddy, taken on his birthday in December was accidently downloaded into this post and I cannot remove it, so here he is in all his sweetness on his 3rd birthday.
below, a very unusual and pretty poinsetia on the coffee table, and the dining room table centerpiece where we later enjoyed a totally indulgent and delicious Christmas dinner of Alaskan king crab legs and broiled swordfish. It truly was a perfect day for just us!
After we had dinner, and as we were doing the dishes we noticed the sky becoming very dark and the wind picking up, and within minutes we were in a full-fledged snow squall with hail, etc. It lasted for about 20 minutes. We hustled out to the car and drove about 1/2 mile to the beach and caught the storm clouds as they moved out over the Atlantic and Pleasant Bay. You can see the precipitation coming down from the clouds over the water. Very dramatic.
Below is another shot of the tree....we had a perfect day - simple. We are so very fortunate to have each other, our love, our families, and to live in such great beauty.
