Around OakMeadows

Around OakMeadows

Our Christmas trip to Las Vegas was very nice.  It had been about 15 years since I had been there and my goodness, the traffic was just unbelievable. We saw "O" and the Blue Man Group which was so much fun.  JMM, DD, & DSIL also saw Rock of Ages and the Michael Jackson tribute.  But the highlight to me was the spa. DD and I got manicures and facials and thoroughly enjoyed being pampered.  A second highlight was eating at the different restaurants. It was a nice way to spend the holiday. 

I've just finished watching the Netflix streaming series, Occupied.  It is set in Norway as the Russians move in to occupy the country and take over their oil and gas fields. It is excellent! I can hardly wait for the 2nd season. A must watch. IMHO. 

Finally finished the quilt top for my baby boy quilt. I would post a picture but Blogger is not cooperating the evening.  I will post it when I can. Next I am going to finish up a quilt top that I started about 2 years ago.  

I am trying out a food delivery system, Schwan's.  They deliver frozen meals to your home ready for microwave or oven.  It will be nice to have one or two meals a week that I don't have to cook.  I get the first order tomorrow. I will let you know how it turns out.

We did our quarterly finances yesterday and I was pleased that our investments are doing very well. I find myself chagrined that our stocks have done so well since the election of that awful man. But there you are. 

The weather has been unseasonably mild and we still have butterflies on the milkweed and other still blooming plants.  There are still Monarchs, Queens, Gulf Fritillaries, and Longtailed skippers. I'm puzzled about the Monarchs. I thought by now all of them would have gone to Mexico but we still have Monarchs, caterpillars, and chrysalis. 

That's all the news from OakMeadows where the cats are all spoiled rotten and so are the people.
