Thank you all for you wonderful comments but want to remind you that I am not the person who does the artwork. I captured these from Pinterest and am enjoying them along with you:)
I will also say that I saw this
recently at a Christian book store.

Never too old

As most of you know I have knitted for charity for preemie babies for a long time. Long enough that I burnt myself out but recently I have started back and have been thrilled to find a few new patterns that have some new to me stitches.....
like this drop stitch with a contrast color and the skp decrease. I am going to try the matching socks that are toe up which I have never done and so I am proof that you are never too old to learn something new!

We have had our smart TV for two years but have not been smart enough to use it. Sunday my son-in-law came over and showed us what to do and set us up with Netflix so yesterday hubby and I watched our first movie.

It was excellent and wish they had a Netflix review like they do for books. Are there some you would recommend?

It's the little things...

Pulled that left over turkey and broth out of the freezer and made this last week when it was cold and windy. Sure made my day brighter.

See this...

A few mornings ago I fried myself a egg for breakfast and washed the dishes and left them on the drainer to dry.

Later in the day I glanced over and noticed this...
See all those marks on the spatula? Apparently it has been laid on a hot frying pan or two and of course I keep things forever! Had to laugh and of course I promptly put it back in the drawer.

It is crocheted and starched.

Recently a friend shared that she would not be able to put up many Christmas decorations this year and I told her to be sure and pick the ones that make you smile.....

I decided to take my own advice:)

Did you know

Around the age of four or five the female polar bear can start having babies. They usually only have two cubs and they have these babies in a cave they've dug in a large snow drift.  They stay there over winter and come out in spring with the babies. 

The babies are much smaller than human babies when they're born.  They are the size of a rat and weigh little more than a pound.  They can grow to full man size in a year if they have lots of food.

Male polar bears may grow 10 feet tall and weigh over 1400 pounds.  Females reach seven feet and weigh 650 pounds.  In the wild polar bears live up to age 25

Despite what we think, a polar bear's fur is not white.  Each hair is a clear hollow tube.  Polar bears look white because each hollow hair reflects the light. On sunny days, it traps the sun's infrared heat and keeps the bear warm at 98 degrees F (when they're resting).
Polar bear fur is oily and water repellent. The hairs don't mat when wet, allowing the polar bears to easily shake free of water and any ice that may form after swimming.
Underneath the fur, a polar bear's skin is actually black -- the black skin soaks up the sun's heat and helps them stay warm.
Polar bears also have a 4 inch layer of fat underneath their skin.  This prevents them from losing any of their heat.
Polar bears have wide front paws with slightly webbed toes that help them swim.  They paddle with their front feet and steer with their hind feet.  Paw pads with rough surfaces help prevent polar bears from slipping up on the ice. Polar bears have been known to swim 100 miles at a stretch.

Polar bears primarily eat seals and humans are the polar bears only predator.
It is said that Polar bears are left-handed but I sure don't know how they came to that conclusion, don't think you would want to ask him.............

Sunday's pondering

Check this out...

Located in Portsmouth, UK
In the middle of the Solent on one of the restored "Palmerston", (19th century) forts.
A short (30 minute) boat journey brings you to this location which has been totally restored to offer a hotel with 360 degree uninterrupted views, roof terrace with fire pit, sauna/hot-house, hot tubs and lighthouse tower. The rooms are HUGE (with all en-suite facilities) and there are numerous "gentlemens club" type lounges.

There are only nine luxurious suites and you will be treated like a king and queen
from the time to arrive until time to leave.
Fire pit
Spa with a killer view
Definitely not the norm..
