My Sunday mornings always start with brewing a pot of coffee, then reading the Sunday Times, and time permitting, working on the Sudoku puzzle. Today was a particularly good day because the puzzle was rated "tough" (on a scale of gentle, moderate, tough, and diabolical). I usually can't solve the tough ones... maybe about 1 in 5. Anyway, I solved today's puzzle, so off to a good start. I had my trusty chihuahua by my side for moral support.
As I was working on my Sudoku puzzle, my wife was working on a sewing project (modifying a dog sweater). For really fine work, she will sometimes wear two sets of reading glasses for better vision. But the dog was not sitting still for this activity... pretty funny watching her trying to do this project with the dog all over her!
Later in the morning, my wife was sorting through old holiday cards (trying to figure out what to keep and what to toss) and we came across this one from Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker (aren't they in jail??). What do you think... is it a keeper??
My wife was also busy putting out Christmas decorations and I couldn't resist taking this photo of a display on the fireplace mantle. When the kids were young, we always took them to the same Santa every year to get their picture taken. From the ages of about 2 - 5, my daughter would cry hysterically when placed on Santa's lap no matter how hard we tried to gently back her in so she couldn't see what was going on. Ah, fun times! She laughs about it now.
Happy Macro Monday, and have a great week.
