    New years day... Ahhhh, snow.

    We drove to pick up my aunt, and all her new goodies, from the rehab center. Brr cold. And we took her home.

    I did one load of her laundry, swept her floor a lot, since it seemed like the stupid floor could never get clean, made sure she was able to get around with her walker and not fall. she has a step down into her living room from her kitchen. If she can avoid her basement stairs and garage, that will be her only obstacle. She's still unsteady on her feet.

    Anyway, I decided that every day of this new year, I will try and get at least one picture of something I did that day or just something. You know... I guess that's as close as I'm going to get to a "new years resolution". so here goes...

    And my aunt gave me this ring. See, those stones are "service pins" my uncle got from work. He worked at GM. Anyway, she took all those little "service pins" and a jeweler made it into a ring. And she gave it to me! :)

    Of course it's super special because it's like having a part of my uncle with me :) He died when I was 18 months.

    It fits on my finger. I'm supposed to wear a wedding ring there, however... haven't had one on in a couple months...

    Anywhoo, it was a pretty good day. :)

    *fingers crossed*

  • Thanks for sharing your snowmen with us. I actually like the top picture of the snow, so it feel more like winter to me.
    It was a great thought of your aunt to use your Uncle's service pins and make them into a ring, and very sweet and thoughtful of her to give it to you. I'm glad it fits.
    I look forward to seeing what you are going to take a picture of tomorrow.
    one last comment.. Your new avatar is gorgeous!

  • I got a kick out of the Cardinal. I did not know they were cold weather birds.

    The ring is a wonderful treasure for you.

    Things sound good---especially when kids go back to school. lol

  • Happy New Years! Maybe someday your prince will buy you a beautiful diamond ring. One can always dream, right?
