Putting 2010 to Bed

I don't do New Year's resolutions, but I would like to find the time to blog more.  With the new smaller camera, it is so much easier to photograph the small and large wonders I see everyday.

Here are some of the photos from December I wanted to share.  Captions are under each photo because with this amount, it is just easier than trying to get the darn blogger (non-HTML) software spacing issues to work.

The morning after the lunar eclipse.  We couldn't see the eclipse because it was behind the
building at that time (and I was not going out at 2:30am). 

The night of the blizzard - the street lights gave the sky and snow a soft pink-yellow glow.

The night after the storm.  And these streets are so-called emergency roadways
that should get priority plowing. 

A few more ornaments crafted by my mother.  This used to be a whole family,
but the father took off to parts unknown.

This little gingerbread man is less than 2 inches tall.
[edit - oops, just realized this guy is missing a "button" leaving the remaining
looking like something else...]

Senor Rick!  He traveled from Spain to spend Christmas with his loving humans (my in-laws) this
holiday season.  He is quite the trooper and international cat!

Mr. Beans - we got them Christmas gifts, but as usual, the Lord and Taylor
bags are the biggest hit.

Yes, this is the same Mr. Beans. Quite the little man of mystery and disguises.

Lola - her turn in the Lord and Taylor's bag.

A rare night with lights on in the Church across the street.

New Year's Eve day - still some clean snow to be found...

...but not much!

New Year's Eve - the best show and a beautiful way to close 2010.

For some, 2011 is looking much the same, but for me it is already off to a great year -
 I hope it is for all of you too!

Wonderful photos, oh I love them. I had to laugh about the cats loving the bag... reminds me of my daughter when she was small and the big box was more interesting than the actual toy that it housed...
Have a wonderful 2011.

The cat photos are gorgeous ! I find it hard to choose between Mr. Bean's Zorro and Lola's Demure .
Your blizzard does look very impressive . I'm all snowed-out . The last lot's melted and I'd be glad of a break now ..... till 2015 or so would be good There's a limit to how many snowmen any family needs !

Happy New Year. Your New Year's Eve photograph is stunning. And what is it with cats and bags (or boxes)? Ours find them equally irresistible.
