Here's a Health to the Company

Kind friends and companions come join me in rhyme
Come lift up your voices in chorus with mine
Come lift up your voices all grief to refrain
For we may or might never all meet here again

So here's a health to the company and one to my lass
Let's drink and be merry all out of one glass
Let's drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
For we may or might never all meet here again

Happy New Year to you and yours. There is no time like the present.

A Reprive: Charleston Flowers

For Christmas we got rain, lots of windswept, sideways rain. In many ways it reminded me of our honeymoon :lol: Seems like this year is just a wash, literally. Unfortunately between all the running around we did over the last 4 days I did not bother to take my camera because honestly it's one more thing to cart around. I can not wait till I can convince Chris that we only need to go to 2 family events for the Holidays, not 8.

In any case here's something to cheer you up if where you're at happens to be a bit dull and grey right now :)
This was snapped at the Boone Hall Plantation. It was a very wet and chilly day, but it made for a vibrant picture.

I hope to have some more crafty pictures up in the coming week :) It's going to be very busy for me since I have some rare down time from the 9-5.

A Reprive: Charleston Vegitation?

Charleston, with it's temperate climate is different. It's wetter, milder and downright odd. I found more fungi in Charleston than I ever did in any mid-Ohio backwood.

And there are ferns everywhere. It felt primeval. Marshy, bog-like, moist....well moist because it also rained alot on all of our outdoor treks. (I secretly hate the word 'moist').

But this was my favorite fungus. I have no idea what kind it is, but it's cool.

I Have Nothing Wise To Add

My "9-5" is unbelievably stressful at the moment. I've been buried under heaps of work that no one else can do. This is very unfortunate for me as I'd much rather be crafting and attending to business as it were. Adding to the "overwhelmed" feeling was the fact I forgot my house keys in the hubby's car (thank God for a spare set), the first dusting of snow that caused me to get stuck on the highway for 50 min. and driving another 20 min to work to be late a total of 2 hours, and then getting even MORE non-prioritized work that seems to be "very pressing" to upper management. But enough moping. I have to earn my keep for now :lol:

So here's a cat in a corner.
