Another year gone...

It's been quite some time since I last paid any mind to my lonely blog. I guess that would explain why it's a lonely little blog.

Now that Christmas is over and it's a New Year, I guess I'll post a few festive photos. Better late than never, I say. All my decorations are down now save for the mantle in the master bedroom. I'm savouring the last little bit of the season. I found a couple of candle sticks and candle holders at a thift store and paired them up with some E-6000 glue. That glue is great stuff and I'm really happy with my results and for a total of only $3!

Now, about that glue, I was sucking up some pesky cluster flies that manage to find their way into the house all winter long. My first winter here in this old farm house had me wondering if something had died in the attic or walls, thus the flies (perish the thought!) but after asking around and doing some online research I found this to be a common problem. In the fall, you can see all these flies sunning themselves on the siding. I guess when the sun goes down or the weather gets too cold, they find their way under the siding and somehow into the house.

Yea, so anyway... I'm sucking up a couple of flies with the vacuum cleaner and the hose attaches itself to the Christmas stocking on the mantle and takes down my most favorite stocking hanger; a lovely (faux) bronze deer with a mighty rack. I was heartbroken to see the pair of antlers broken off and crazy glue wasn't going to put my poor deer back together again. Then I recalled reading about this E-6000 glue and got me some. Impressed. I got the antlers glued back on and my deer is almost just as good as new.

Happy New Year! I hope all your hopes and desires are met beyond your greatest expectations. And I hope the same thing for myself. I could handle that.
