Well, I'm playing catch up.
I trust all my blogger buds had great holidays. Christmas and New Years.
Except for one other this was the first Christmas without family in over forty years. We did though, zoom with the bro and sis-in-law that night and then again New Year's Eve. That was a definite plus or two pluses:) Christmas morning we were zipping along, opening our gifts and enjoying our quiet Christmas. Then I started going downhill and crashed. I did my zooming from bed, adding an occasional nod of the head;) We had went to the vineyards for our anniversary lunch and I may have picked up something there. I really was lucky. It could have been much, much worse.
Any hoo, here are some of my fun Christmas gifts:)
My literary jammies:)
This is from my bro and sis-in-law. As you can see it's made from recycled paper and elephant dung, which is basically raw cellulose. As there aren't enough safe areas, elephants in Sri Lanka wander, interfere in agriculture and are consequently killed. The idea of this paper is to hopefully bridge the gulf between elephant and man and to show the elephant as an economic asset to the farmer instead of a source of lost income.
Another box of rocks. (Rainbow fluorite.)
This knife is to scrape the peanut butter out of an emptied jar.
And my creative gifts.
From good bud, poet and photographer D. L. Finn. I look forward to these calendars:)
And my daughter painted this picture of my Sweet Belle, which I treasurer.
What about you blogger, buds? What were your most fun and/or treasured gifts?
