December Is Flying By

Christmas 2014 ouside front (A few years ago)

I do believe December is flying by way too fast! Hope everyone had a great Christmas. We did! All four kids plus the two older ones brought their loves to spend Christmas Day with us. 🙂

Our family is growing! For me that was the best gift, because I know sometimes we won’t all be able to. Life gets busy and people scatter.

I received some great gifts. I love all gifts, from a thought to an expensive one. I do believe the thought ones stay with you way more than an expensive one. 🙂 Though hubby did surprise me with an expensive one this year, a new fridge. The other one was leaking, ruining our floor. It is now in the garage for drinks and extra food. It came in handy for the holiday. 🙂 So far, that fridge is not leaking out there. Go figure! LOL

Now, that brings us to the next holiday, New Years!

I was spending time online looking at one of my favorite music stores, Guitar Center, and came across the blue woodpecker. The name caught my eye. I even chuckled a bit.  What a gorgeous microphone!

Picture came to my mind of singing on New Years with that microphone. Do you ever daydream? I have some doozies. If I was having a party, been awhile, this microphone would be fabulous for karaoke. Do you like to karaoke? I usually have to have a few beers in me before getting in front of a crowd. I do have a couple of kids that love to sing. They would love this.

Whatever your plans are for the New Years, stay safe, have fun, and best wishes for you in 2017! 🙂


I am a writer and an artist, at least in my mind. :) I love to read!

  1. It is a pretty microphone. I like vintage-lookin stuff 🙂 I agree with you, too, about the thoughtful gifts ❤
    I find it hysterical that the old fridge isn't leaking in its new spot! Oh my word! But hey, a new fridge! 🙂

    1. Me too. So shiny! Isn’t it Murphy’s Law? Lol New one is side by side. Like it a lot. Old one had bottom freezer and don’t care for that. Kids keep forgetting old one in garage so they forgot about pie today. Hubby and I liked that. More for us. Lol

      1. I have a side by side (came with house) and I hate it, but at least it still runs 😉
        I’m not a fan of freezer on the bottom, either. I like typical ones, traditional ones, me thinks.
        More pie is definitely more better 🙂

  2. That is great you had Christmas which made you feel good! We have a music studio upstairs above my art gallery where everything is always hooked up, that includes a very good microphone. I believe, you’d love that, just to go and sing. This place is not that well suited for staying in it or living, but for arts.
    It is fantastic to have a large family and family can come together. In that regard, my Christmas is a really silent one because family except husband is across the ocean. I suppose you cannot have everything.
    Wishing you to have, to keep and to enjoy all things which you already have and good health, abundance and pleasant days in 2017!

    1. Thank you. Hope your New Year is great. That is great having a music studio. That would be fun. Sorry your family is far away. At least there is cell phones and video conferencing. I know our time is coming when it won’t work out for the holidays. Enjoying it now.
