my christmas present... 
and some arctic air here in florida, just in time for me to "christen it." 
can you christen a fire pit? 
i might not be around as much this week - 
husband and daughter off from work and school;
hoping to do some walking
and napping
and movie watching, 
and maybe some sitting around the fire,
toasting marshmallows.
wishing you all the happiest of new years!

What a wonderful, thoughtful present. Now you can 'keep warm' on those cool nights and simple enjoy the firelight on the other nights.
Enjoy your time with hubby and daughter. I'll be looking forward to your return, friend.:)

PS - my verification word is "dizante" - my friends in the newspaper business in the 60s used to call me Diz. Now a whole herd of young people and children call me "Auntie" which we western Canadians pronounce just like "ante"!

Such a great gift, Leslie...wow! Hope this finds you & yours still having a cozy Christmas holiday. We’re just emerging from some very festive days just now. Later in the week is my birthday–hubby’s taking me out to lunch. Then we ring in New Year already–it’s a great time just now! Happy Days, my friend ((HUGS))

O, wish I had one of those! Coulda used it this week...cold and chilly in Florida and my poor family from Iowa is having to put up with this cold weather. However, they don't really mind...weather in Iowa is much colder.
Have a lovely break and we'll see you later,
hugs,
becky
