Dinner and a glass of wine in this evening.
I borrowed my husband's camera for this shot.
My camera is out on the town for the New Year's Eve celebration. :)

Best wishes for a Happy New Year!!!

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them,

Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
- Luke 2:8-14

I was looking for a recipe yesterday, and came across this one for date whirls (date-nut pinwheel cookies), handwritten by my Grandma. She's been gone since March 1981, but always close in our hearts and memories. This is one of the many cookie recipes she baked for the Christmas holiday.

While this life-size fiberglass bison awaits being painted by an area artist, it is dressed for the holiday season in an elf costume fashioned by Brenda P. The Buffalo Stampede is a community fundraiser that benefits the Mary Martha Outreach.

I purchased these chalkware Santas at a silent auction in 1989. The Santas were hand-crafted by Diane Dunn, *edit ... in the same year.

acute otitis media

So ... I've had this 'inner ear' issue for the past couple months ... no pain, but this week it was becoming a bother, so I decided it was time for a visit to the nearby walk-in clinic.

The view from my front door yesterday afternoon during a heavy downpour. The maple tree in the neighbor's yard has fabulous fall color. Today is cooler, sunny and dry. Have a wonderful weekend!
