Fedex lost Rosie Lee's new bed so she's insisting that Kota share his. It's pretty funny watching them both take turns with this.

An amazing few hours on the Skyline Drive, enjoying the amazing cloud show.

One of the waterfalls on my hike near home today. Because of the recent heavy rain, the springs were thundering down the mountain.

Very cute salt and pepper pots at the cafe in Flint Hill where I stopped for coffee today.

Rosie Lee watching Kota try out their new Snuggle Cave Bed. If they both like it I'll order another. A lovely relaxing Christmas Day feeling cozy while the rain fell down outside.

Saw this cute Santa sack in a shop window in Warrenton, with a wookie, Yoda and Darth Vadar.

Came home and found this lovely gift from my neighbors, Tom and Laurie. So cute, and the pecans are delicious!

When the kids finish school the parents have to bring them to work and it doesn't take long for the antics to start. Here, Sebastion was being boxed up and being sent to who knows where!

One of my favorite views of Marshall. I never tire of this old grain tower, and hope it will always remain as part of the town's skyline.

Beautiful lichen covered rocks on the Appalachian Trail today.

It's heaven to be out of the freezing cold and sat in front of a crackling fire with Kota and Rosie Lee.

Emily polishing off the juices from her bowl of mussels. We all got together to use our $50 vouchers from the Snallygaster beer festival that we'd been given for volunteering. At Bluejacket in DC, the food and beer and company made for an excellent evening.

I've just seen the premiere of the Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, with a friend, and everyone in the cinema cheered and clapped when this appeared on the screen. Continuing the saga from 30 years ago was worth the wait. As expected, JJ Abrahms did not disappoint, it continued in the same style as though it were made at the same time as the originals. I'll be going to see it again!

Buckets of old chimney lining stacked outside the house. The chimney and wood stove have been revamped so it's now easier and safer to use, and will be more economic. But where's the cold weather? We're going to be in the 70's next week, boo!

Another awesome Christmas display in Marshall. An empty house on Main St has a nativity scene in its window. The word PEACE is in the background and I loved the 'stars' on the left.

Love this snowman that sits outside the new Red Truck Bakery in Marshall.

My latest acquisition. Janice and Bill accompanied me, helping tremendously with their knowledge, and Janice, bless her, was a bit wobbly with the photo. But I'm glad she took it!

At Soul Belly Brewery to enjoy their beers after a day at Waterford's Winterfest.

After a really bad day at work I came home early to see how the chimney repairs were coming along. A custom piece has to be made so I could be without the stove for a week. Not good.

The last few seconds of the sun's rays bathed all the vehicles on Rte 66 in an orange light. In less than a minute the sun had dropped below the horizon.

Walking through production I looked down and saw a heart on the floor. Jony saw it too and added an arrow!

Margie trying to break down the chunks of frozen fruit in the punch at her fun and fabulous Christmas Brunch Party.

A fabulous view of Harper's Ferry, but one that we had to work damn hard to see. My poor legs were very tired after a lot of uphill climbing.

Friday, December 4, 2015

Loving my Star Wars sweater that I wore to our work Christmas lunch. Even the waiter at the restaurant said it was the best one he'd seen all day!

Met Emily at the posh Airlie Hotel for a few late night drinks. A great night but very glad it's Friday today....

Finally settling down to watch this series that I used to love as a kid. It's so dated now but at the time it was the business. Kota gave his sniff of approval.

Another day of perpetual rain. Another image of my favorite skyline in Marshall. The rain running down the windshield makes this look like a watercolor painting.
