Honey Bells

I have been watching commercials for Honeybells for the past few years. This year it was on our Christmas list. Honeybells for those who don't know are cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. Honeybells come to their ripeness in January, so we had to wait for ours. They are so good. Very juicy (hence they ship with a bib)

Christmas Cactus???

I have two Christmas Cactus plants. They have bloomed in the past, but this year, I have lots and lots of blooms. They just started blooming about a week ago, and they keep getting more....

So, they can't read the calendar....maybe they should be MLK Day Cactus? Doesn't matter to me, I like them.


So you know I was sick. Well I coughed so hard, I actually pulled a muscle in my back. So one afternoon, I laid on the floor with an icepack on my back and a blanket. I discovered Stormy wanted to cuddle up too. So I let her be all covered up too. Kevin snapped this of the two of us.

Happy Birthday Pauline

Pauline is now 18 years old! Yea! Hope she has a great day.

We really look forward to her visiting in:

What is it 2011 already?

Ok so I have been "out". Let me give you some catch you back up....

Before Christmas...Kevin had a birthday, we took a day off work, went to Denver, did some shopping had a great dinner out and came home.

Christmas....had all the family here. Big group, great food, fun.

Then it all turned......The sickness fell in.

First I had it and was in bed for a few days (not how I dreamed of spending my vacation), then it spread around the house and all 4 of us have had it.

New Years bed by 10, sick

New Years Day...stayed home and tried to get well.

Back to work for 2011, busy as usual, still recovering from illness. I think we are all now down to that point where you just have an annoying cough leftover.

This coming weekend is a holiday weekend, plan to take it a little easy, and finally put some Christmas stuff away, we haven't been able to do so yet.

So you can see while we haven't posted...there isn't much to say....
