117/365 Turkey Soup

One of the bonuses of cooking a big turkey... besides the turkey sandwiches.

116/365 Ticket to Ride

Every year one game takes over the dining room table when we convert from formal suppers to turkey sandwiches and clean out the fridge mode. This year it is Ticket to Ride and the guys are playing it as I type. 

BTW - I shot this with my new Canon Powershot.

114/365 Merry Christmas!

Posting my 365 early today because I think it is going to be a busy day.
The stockings were all hung by the chimney with care... until Santa arrived and they were too heavy!

Enjoying our family traditions.
Now we will wait for Mark's arrival from Thompson Mb and continue the celebration together.
David and I are giving thanks for His incredible blessings this morning - but especially for His son who brings the biggest blessing of all - everlasting joy unimaginable.
May you all have a blessed Christmas day with loved ones rejoicing, contemplating and celebrating the gift of a Savior to a fallen world.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11  (NIV)
Yes a Savior has been born to you - May you worship Him as you celebrate His coming today. 
Blessings and love to each and every one of you today and in 2010.
Julie

112/365 Church


My parents gave us this little church about 20 years ago - maybe longer. It has been part of our Christmas decorations every year. It quietly sits in the corner, is plugged in Dec first and is lit throughout Christmas, kind of like the family room night light, until it is put back in it's box for another 11 months.

106/365 Christmas extravaganza!


This 2 second exposure caught all the lights, but you have to experience this wonderful display of Christmas spirit in person. It comes with music. And not only the music, but the lights flash on and off and are choreographed to the music - AMAZING! For those of you in Saskatoon - Kellough Rd - and the light are off by 9 pm so get there well before then.

103/365 Angel

My son Paul made this angel in Mrs Meighan's class in grade four.
It has been on our fireplace mantle every Christmas since then.
This Christmas I will show it to Paul's daughter. Not that it will mean anything to her - but in a few years it might.

102/365 ICE


My oak windows are taking a beating from all this ice buildup.
My kitchen window. I have decided I should not do any dishes for a week - too much moisture.
No laundry either.

101/365 flavor!


Sometimes I have trouble picking which flavoring to put in my coffee. On those days I just tell Rob to surprise me.

100/365 Fudge

Only 265 to go....sigh.
But the perfect way to celebrate photo number 100 is with fudge. My sweetheart had a hankering and so I made him some maple walnut fudge today. It turned out very well and I got a big smile from him.

99/365 Christmas Bouquet

Hard to believe I have taken a photo every day for 99 days. Not sure if that is a testament to my commitment or just plain stubbornness! Probably a little of both.

Today's photo is of a small part of a gorgeous Christmas bouquet my coworkers at Saskatoon Health Region sent me. 
Thank you guys!  It is on my desk as I type and I LOVE it!
More photos on the BLOG.

98/365 FIRE


Playing with fire - don't tell my kids.
It was an impulsive thing - must be all the candles around here.

95/365 Goofy Star


And the last day of the 365 B&W challenge week is a goofy Christmas Star which was supposed to be the new funky lime green tree topper this year but, bad design, it's weight makes it bend the top of the tree over. Not good. Sooo it sits on the mantle and I have embellished it with those very pretty lime green grenades.

93/365 ice on the tree


Looked outside this afternoon to see the sun glimmering off ice crystals on the birch tree. Just beautiful! I will post more photos on my reg blog HERE.

91/365 Good wine

"May our love be like good wine...... grow stronger as it grows older."

Old English Toast

That little heart on the glass is a reflection off the paper - just caught it at the right angle with the remote flash. Love how the paper is reflected in the stem too.

90/365 It's December




Continuing on with that B&W theme and considering also adding a Christmas theme this week...because on Friday my daughter is coming over to help me pull out all the decorations. It is December after all and we only get to do this once a year. Lime green here we come!!
