Random pictures to finish out the year

I won't recap 2016, because it was a less than stellar year on many fronts, but I will say that I'm really looking forward to 2017. I have plenty of plans for the new year which I'll tell you more about later. I hope it's a good one for us all!

Here are a few pictures I wanted to share for my last post of 2017.

The sky on the last morning of the year.

The camellias are blooming like mad.

Marco is always up to no good. Here he was yesterday stealing nuts from the can beside me on the couch. This morning I caught him crunching on a coffee bean that had escaped the grinder. I'm surprised he's never made himself sick.

Another new fish. This little betta charmed Gregg at the pet store and found himself a home. We put him in a 2 gallon tank with some live plants, and it gets good sunlight in the afternoon. I wish this picture did his amazing color more justice!

George made me late to work yesterday. He ran into the back yard when I was attempting to put him on a leash (which is the only way I can back the car out of the garage without him escaping and running all over the neighborhood) and would not come to me for hooking up! He thought it was a fun game, and I ended up 15 minutes late for work.

Ginger being silly.

That's it for me! See you all next year!


  1. The sky photo is very good, and moody. Camellias seem very early. Happy 2017.

  2. We know what you meant, but can you change it to 2016 in para 2. I love that pic of the two dogs.

  3. Beautiful photos (love Ginger being silly). Hope 2017 is a fantastic year for you Jennifer.

  4. I just caught up with your last few posts. Love the photos in this one.
    I am having breakfast on Jan 1st now. A dull, damp day here in SE England.
    Your Ginger reminds me very much of my first dog, Dillon. He was put to sleep over 3 years ago aged about 17. HIs main coat was " tan", like Ginger's paws, and he had white toes. His ears were pointed rather than droopy but had the same face and body as G.
    Happy New Year to you and Gregg and your animal/bird/fish family from Harpenden. X

  5. I like this random collection of pictures - sometimes this kind of post can inspire us to let the mind wander and come up with ideas we didn't know we had.
    Happy New Year to you and your loved ones, Jennifer! I hope your dreams and plans for 2017 will become reality.
