Weekly Winners time once again - all thanks to Lotus!

Click for larger images (because they do look better full-sized) or take a peek at the entire album at once and/or watch as a slideshow at this link.

Uncommon White Christmas
(or see video posted previously for full effect)

Cold Outside, Warm & Sleepy Inside
(aka why I want to be born a well-loved cat next time)

Dump Pepper Lime Chicken
(Click title for recipe)
So easy, so freezable, so yummy, from my freezer

(with Cilantro Rice = rice, salt, fresh chopped cilantro to taste)

Waiting for Hygienist
(Paperwhites, I think?)

Still Waiting = Camera Playtime
(until other people were around, and I got shy)

New Year's Resolution
(to seriously take care of my teeth/gums for real now that I'm no longer a smoker -thank you Chantix - and the whole Paying the Perio Piper issue thing due to 20+ years of smoking damage coupled with my very short-lived resolve back when I adopted my anthem and was revved up back in July but then did jack-all means, in short, my gums pretty darn angry and full of hate).


  1. Your paperwhites look so pretty! I'm still waiting for mine to bloom, but they're almost ready...I'm just happy they've grown at all...they were a gift, and I was very afraid, because usually plants just up and die the moment I walk into the room!

  2. Gorgeous photos, every one, but I'm a softy for a cat photo. (Yeah, my next life of choice, too.)
    And, brava, for baring the gums! (They look pretty good, actually.)Don't know that I could be so brave - and I haven't smoked in years.

  3. hehehe 13 months of non smoking for me.. yay!!! great pics.. thanks

    cheers kim..

    (oops the ciggies have wrecked my teeth tho.. so I am pleased you stopped, whilst you still have a smile..)

  4. If I understand this correctly, we are all going to come back as cats in our next life huh? Me too, love that picture! Cats and flowers, you can never go wrong on those can you?

  5. Yay for pearly whites!!

    I just love your selections, and I will be making that chicken dish. I have to, it calls for cilantro, my favorite!

    Happy New Year, Maggie!

  6. congratulations on quitting - I love the cat picture -just so adorable. Beautiful flowers too.

  7. Yay for being smoke free! What a major accomplishment..congrats :)

    Those paperwhites are beautiful.
    And that chicken dish looks de-lish *drool*

  8. People who know the names of random flowers impress the heck out of me. I love cats too, but I can give you two words about why it's always better to be a human: toilet paper.


  9. Ah, I love your photos. The snow! I am jealous of... as well as the nappability the cat has. I want to sleep all day!

    We had tons of those flowers in our yard when I was growing up, as well as daffodils. My dad always called them Narcissus (which they also are) and I think it's a more fun name. Like you're accusing them of being full of themselves. ;-)

  10. Dude, I am so coming back as a cat sister with you... The snow shot and flowers and you (of course) are all great!

  11. Yep, I am up for a bit of cattitude myself in the next life. No one to answer to, sleep when and where I want. Sounds like bliss.

    All your photos are wonderful. Love the snow pic.

  12. Great pics..I love the kitty..and flowers..and yeah you for taking care of the gums..

  13. Great photos. That is a gorgeous dogs, too, have a terribly tough life (like deciding whether to sleep on my bed or in the sun, and whether to bother barking at the UPS guy...tough tough life.)

  14. Great Pics! And good for you for making the teeth & gum resolution. It's something very easy to maintain, and much more rewarding now that you're not yellowing them up. By the way, if you haven't tried them already, Crest Whitestrips work great for removing those old smoker stains.
