Fire's Provide Warmth, even on TV

Cleaning out photo's on the phone and sending them to my computer and came across a few I thought I'd share.  Not sure if I have before?

This was a gift we bought ourselves some time back and we've really enjoyed it.  And oh, how I wish we could sit outside now and enjoy our cocktails.  But, not until Spring, way too cold here in Central Ohio for that now.  Still though, looking at the fire, the nice warm fire makes me smile.  That's hubby's hand showing you his perfect Martini....I only make perfect ones you know!
This is our Christmas present to us.  The large tv and cabinet.  We had to clean out the entertainment center that I loved, just simply couldn't get a bigger tv, which we needed, as neither of us can read the print without getting up from the chair.  AND the new smart tv's...so much easier to use.  Who knew you could have a fire place with lovely music on the tv...I didn't until my youngest nephew's wife, Heather showed me.  We enjoyed this throughout the Christmas visit when our darling daughter was home visiting!
Christmas morning traditional brunch includes cinnamon rolls, Mandarin oranges, egg casserole and of course Champagne.  I make egg casseroles for everyone in the family so they can take it home on Christmas Eve and have for their breakfast in the morning.  Long standing tradition, and when Mom was alive she made homemade rolls to go with it.  In recent years, I've found out Mama Mimi's (take and bake pizza) makes homemade cinnamon rolls twice a year so we order a pan for everyone to go with their eggs.  Hubby and Darling Daughter always go out to the deck when opening the champagne to see how far they can get the cork to fly, lol
Absolutely terrible picture hubby took last night, but I thought I'd share anyway.  No sure why my hair looks so bad..........eh.  The purpose though of the picture is to show you my new light...see the thing around my neck?  It's a very light weight and flexible light to help with knitting and crocheting.  I ordered this Minger light from Amazon at the suggestion of Sandie P (check out her blog).  I made a comment a few days ago the difficulty with some yarn and some colors working at night and Sandie told me she used one of these lights and it really helped.  I followed the link she sent to Amazon and order pronto!  They have both one you put batteries in and one that you can re-charge.  I opted for the re-chargeable one, which I believe is what she also has.  Not that you can see much, but the item in my hand is a new afghan.  It's a knitted ripple and I'm currently using a blue variegated.  I'm fighting a bit when trying to K2tog, even though I don't knit tightly, the yarn is quite course, but hopefully it will solften with working with it and when it's laundered and blocked.  Looked last night in my stash for a brown variegated I thought I had to strip with it, but couldn't find it; so will have to look again.........if no luck....will pull out some other colors.  Stay tuned.

  1. Love the firepit! I hear ya about the TV print. That's why we have a large one also. You can also adjust the size of captioning if needed. Glad you are enjoying the Minger light. I used mine yesterday as well. It really helps.

  2. Thanks Sandie, I didn't know you could adjust the size of captioning. Don't need that yet, but good to know.

    1. Kay thanks for the visit, I think you'll be real happy with the light. Come back and let us know after you try it out.

  4. It's so relaxing watching flames flicker and even if there's no heat coming from them, it somehow makes you feel warmer anyway. The light which you wear around the neck is such a good idea, I may have to look into getting one of those.

  5. A new tv can be a win indeed. The light looks and sounds like a great idea.

  6. Hello Sandy.
    For some reason, on my reading list, your blog has been replaced by "sandy's space" (lower case) - which turns out to be some random man (Sandip something or other whose URL is nothing like yours) from India who last posted in 2016. I am not sure why this has happened. I haven't received any of your Christmas posts automatically. I will try unfollowing and refollowing to see if that helps, so if you see your follower numbers coming and going, don't worry! (if I can't resolve it, I'll follow you by email).
    Best wishes
    Ellie

    1. Sounds like a strange blurb Ellie. Hope you're able to fix it. I like having my blog log in my right sidebar instead of relying on my reading list. Maybe that would help you to add that to your blog?

  7. I didn't realize you live in Ohio. That's where I'm from. Cleveland. But I spent 8 years in Cincinnati. I like the fire pit. And the fire on the screen is nice, too. I just did an author visit, where there was a fire on the screen before I plugged in my presentation. It was kind of nice!

  8. Hi Sandy, I read your comment on my garden blog. I've changed the way my blog posts because Google Plus will be discontinued. I'm afraid a lot of followers won't find me when that happens. Here is the link to my garden blog: https://gonegarden.blogspot.com

    1. And as I figured, it is not coming up as a link that you can click on. So, I'm sorry. If you wish to continue visiting my blog, please remember that the blog you like is the garden blog. Thanks.

    2. I will make sure you're on my blog log. The google plus thing really has presented so many problems. I also show you how to make a hyper link in your comment so when you visit people from one of your blogs you can direct them to that blog by making it clickable.

PLEASE leave your name and url, NOT a profile link, not a google or google plus. Only name and url will take me directly to your blog to return the favor of a comment.
