A Reminder of Christmas

While I am having trouble coming up with interesting things to write about in my blog, I find it even more difficult to come up with a catchy title!  Really Ho Hum seems the best but I have used that a few times, but honestly that is the best way to describe life right now 🙂

I wanted to show you how beautiful my poinsettia still is.  I purchased this at Costco the first week of December and the pictures below were taken two days ago.  At this rate I think it is going to move out with us and I have no idea where I’m going to put it in Maxx because it is such a big plant, but I don’t have the heart to throw it out!

It was a looking like Christmas with the poinsettia and fresh snow falling.

We have enjoyed several Zoom visits this past week.  Sunday night with our son and daughter-in-law in Calgary; Monday night with hubby’s cousins in Moreno Valley, California; Tuesday was our weekly friends happy hour, this used to be a morning coffee group but with COVID happy hour seemed more appropriate 🙂 ; Wednesday morning was our weekly Fed-Ex coffee group; and Wednesday evening we enjoyed a fun happy hour, three hours long, with Colin and Contessa of 5C’s Que Pasa.  We may not be allowed to see family and friends in person but we are still managing to find ways to keep in touch.

We had a pretty sunset while on Zoom with Colin and Contessa.

And I will leave you with a picture of a fun maze we saw in a front yard our way home from church today.  Someone spends a lot of time manicuring these hedges.

Until next time …

  1. It certainly was a fun happy hour. Somehow whether here on in Mexico our happy hours go on and on. Great sunset, much more colour that we saw here.

    Your poinsettia is spectacular. I always get one on the Isla and then give it away when we leave. Only year the handy man had planted it in a pot and it grew the next season.

    • Thanks for the advice Rick but as I have said many times I’m not interested in writing a daily diary. I don’t feel the need to share with others what I eat and when I go to sleep and wake up.

      I will just keep on blogging the way I always have and hope that is enough to keep people interested 😊

      We passed another house that had a very similar hedge and it was just as neatly trimmed. I can only imagine the amount of time they invest in it.


  2. What a beautiful Poinsettia and the colors, wow. That hedge looks like the owner takes a lot of pride in it so wonderfully shaped. Beautiful sunset.
    Nice that you have found a way to stay in touch with family and friends.
