Tuesday Tidbits #200 Two Hundred Tidbits?

I’m Amazed!

I have written 200 Tuesday Tidbits! I’m thrilled and I hope to write 200 more then 200 more after that!

Arizona Fall

The temperatures have been lovely. The mornings and evenings are a bit chilly but it gives us a reason for Sweater Weather. Then later in the day… the sweater can come off. We like taking our layers off throughout the day. The sun has been shining which always puts a smile on my face.

I saw these Desert Marigolds on my walk the other day.

Christmas Came to Town

I love the bokeh from the Christmas Tree!

You heard right… I decided to start decorating for Christmas. After we arrived home here in AZ it took time to get the house opened up and looking fresh and clean. By then it was November already. I did not have the energy to bring down all the fall decor to turn around and put it all away in a few weeks. So… Christmas arrived instead!

My Tea Cart!
A great place to also display my hand painted wine glasses.
Fitz and Floyd Birds

The tree moved from the family room and made it to the dining room. It’s loaded with our favorite Santa Ornaments, our collection of Historical White House Ornaments and our travel ornaments.

All aglow!
Just a few ornaments.
How about some Santa’s with your coffee!
I added some red flowers to this faux greenery.
Red is my favorite color for this Christmas!

I’m loving all the Santa’s this year at our house!

November Slow Moments

So far this November has given me the chance to slow down and enjoy being home. A time to be more present and mindful of our blessed life. As I am writing this post, on my iPad, I am snuggled under a afghan and I have the fire on to warm me as I await the sun to rise. Some mornings I enjoy waking a bit early… no lights are on except the twinkling lights on the mantel and the glow of the twinkling lights in the ficus tree. (I enjoy the mantel lights all year long as well as the lighted ficus tree!) Starting the day slower makes for a better day.

The glow and the quiet is golden!

Lunar Eclipse

Did you get to see it? We had clear skies and we popped out to see it a few times in between sleeping. lol! It’s always a treat to see a Lunar Eclipse!

My cell phone shot.

A few years ago, in 2018, we went up on top of a hill here in AZ to watch a lunar eclipse. I used my LUMIX FZ 200 camera that early morning. You can see the slideshow of the moon phases I captured and posted here.

This was one of my shots from the lunar eclipse from January 2018.

Neighborhood Get Together

Our friend up the street decided to have the neighbor girls over for a morning of Brunch and Mimosas. It was so nice to see the neighbors! We get along well and have fun each and every time we get together. Here’s a peek at her home decorated for us! Thank you my friend!

Such a delicious spread!
Such a darling vignette she has!

Thank You

As I always try to convey… we sure do appreciate all of you. Thank you for joining us for another Tuesday Tidbits.
