Happy New Year:)

Woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning, which will apparently turn to rain later, and then instead of magical powdery stuff, I guess it will just be....yuck.

Thanks to a gift certificate:) I finally got one of the books that has been on my wishlist for a couple of years

Mysteries and Histories: Shipwrecks of the Great Lakes by Wes Oleszewski

having grown up in Michigan, and also living there the year the Edmund Fitzgerald sank, which I've never forgotten....I've just always been interested since then in stories about shipping on the Lakes....yes, I am That much of a geek :)

My book came yesterday, Woo Hoo! and I'm almost done with it.

of course, at the same time, I'm still reading The Sandbox , which has been really cool......a lot of the blog posts that are featured in there I remember reading 'back in the day', and it's like revisiting old friends.

Well, mainly just wanted to wish everyone "Happy New Year"

we have felt so very blessed in 2009, and want to wish everyone a safe, happy, healthy and blessed 2010!

The Balloon lives on.......

Remember the Balloon I bought for Tony back in October while he was recovering from his heart surgery?
Well, it's still hanging around.....(although the cats have destroyed the ribbon that was attached to it.)
It's been floating in a corner of our living room all these months, until the other day I noticed that, as more helium has been slowly leaking out of it, it was starting to drift across the room towards the Christmas tree.

So, I moved it to our bedroom.....forgetting that we run a fan at night.

The result of that was at about 3 a.m. the next morning? we were suddenly awakened by the noise of something Caught in the fan....and when Tony yelled 'what the heck?!' and threw his arm out as he sat up?

His arm hit the balloon and it started singing "Don't worry,Be Happy"

Heck of a way to wake up........still Laughing :)
