Day 334: seems to be a Sunday afternoon tradition..'coffee at Starbucks'..nice way to end the weekend


Day 335: 'Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true....


Day 336: 'baby it's cold outside?' cold you ask?..cold enough for our little fridge that is on the sun deck to turn into a 'freezer'

pop can

Day 352: this ornament has been hanging front and center on our Christmas tree for 32 Christmas's..when I purchased it in 1981 I never thought about the long term..but now as the years have gone by it gets more and more special each and every time I place it on our tree..

IMG_3071 there you have the first 21 days of December..only 11 more photos to go!!


  1. I am amazed at your ability to find and take these fabulous pictures every day for an entire year. And also have such wonderful explanations to go with them. It's been fun following along but I'm sure you will be taking a much needed break.

  2. So what's your daily challenge for next year!? :P

  3. Very fun to see your daily photos, Sue. I agree with Sandie, the explanations and blog captions are all part of the fun!

  4. Looks like you're ready for Christmas ... those cookies look yummy.

  5. I love the "front and center" ornament. We have a similar one that someone got us our first year of marriage.

    Another great job!

  6. Love the first 21 days of December...great pics!! I like the decorations, so pretty! I sure enjoyed the "babies" in the sleeping positions enjoying a good snooze in the bed. Looks familiar!! We have several ornaments that we got from my mom and dad when we got married, They mean so much to me. I now display them in a glass bowl for safety...wouldn't want them to fall from the tree.
    Merry Christmas to you and Doug!! Have a great holiday and a wonderful adventurous 2014!!

  7. Merry Christmas Sue and Doug. Love your decorating. You are a pro!

  8. Please! No more cookie pictures. I drooled all over my keyboard! :cD

    Merry Christmas!

  9. It sure looks like Christmas in your neck of the woods!

  10. Another nice collection of photos. You are almost done with your self imposed photo project.

  11. I sure wish I could do the needlepoint I use to do. The eyes are not so good and I get headaches. You do some great knitting! Your house looks beautiful!!

  12. Your knitting projects make me want to start knitting... some day.

    Merry Christmas! :)

  13. The end of the project is near! Merry Christmas!

  14. You have worked hard at this project - good for you. Wishing you and Doug and very Merry and Blessed Christmas.

  15. Our best Christmas wishes to you and Doug. Enjoyed your year in pictures great job! Hope we can catch up to you guys in 2014.

  16. First Paul and Mary, and now you! You guys are conspiring to torment me because of my lack of discipline. I only wish I could have the gumption to take a creative photo every day. I'm impressed!
