Christmas day was most relaxing this year, hubs and I even managed to fit a dog walk in, that’s a first!
Hubs had me laughing, he came in carrying this wrought iron bird, with it’s head wrapped saying, “You’ll never guess what this is!”
You should have seen the technology flying around, wireless sleep headphones, pebble phone chargers, credit card wallet tools, flying screaming monkeys!?!….that’s my contribution. Hubs came up with a new lappie for me, what joy, I am also now in possession of wireless earphones. Goodness, these items would have been seen as science fiction back in the day. Seems I am being dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century.
Now here’s a thing to ponder. Daughter bought me a plasma ball as I’ve always fancied one.
I placed it in the center of battery operated lights. Imagine my surprise when the lights suddenly came on, especially as the batteries had died three days before.
Goodness, who knew? Every time I turned the plasma ball off, the lights went out. After a few hours the lights worked independently of the plasma ball, seems they can store the excess charge. I’m pondering on what else I can charge now….a wireless charger at last eh?
Maybe I need to patent it!
Tesla discovered plasma! Knowing that, I’m being a little more cautious with my experiments now.
Lovely gifts from dear blogger friends. Thank you Kitty, and you too Anne. How I wish I had invented this gardening pinny. Now my phone and camera will remain scratch free and I shall never lose my secateurs again! I swear my heart misses a beat when I receive seeds!
I finally met Janet this year, someone I have been in touch with for many years. Meeting her was just fantastic, she was just as I imagined her to be, charming and delightful. What a simply marvelous time we had, a trio of artists. Misa, who I know, is a little darling too. Hopefully we’ll catch up again soon. I am thrilled to finally own a piece of Janet’s work. I’ll show it when I get it framed.
I made a real effort to see all my good friends this year, time can be short and we have to make the most of the present and the time we have.
It was just lovely to see nephew, his partner and their baby, who is now one, she wasn’t born when I met her mother in NYC last year.
It was also odd coming across this picture of my sister. How very beautiful she was, inside and out. I am so lucky to have had her in my life. Wish she was still here….
talking of making the most of the time we have….
where, oh where shall hubs and I go for three weeks in February?
The world is our oyster.
Here’s to a simply wonderful 2017 to you all, I’m sending you all my love and very best wishes.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your fabulous lives! I do appreciate you all.xxx
