So, here’s the scoop.

I was at a New Year’s Eve party, at my house.  That’s why the lei- we “dressed up”!!

We played a game, where everyone brought gag gifts, and played “Chinese Exchange” with them.  We drew numbers.  #1 gets first choice of any package.  After they open it, #2 can decide to open a new one, or steal #1.

The last person gets to steal from ANYone!!

Anyhoo, mine turned out to be toilet paper!  Everyone at the party knew my obsession  with it!  And I got an 8 roll pack!!  And no!!!  I didn’t let anyone steal it!

Best gag gift, ever!!

Flighty Flash

My smartphone has a flash in the camera.  Who knew?  Probably a lot of you whippersnappers who are now smirking at me.  I see you.


The infamous amethyst vase.  Now that you can see it clearly, you can see the paper inside.  I had forgotten all about that.  I had heard about a blessing jar last year, and decided to do one of my own.  You write down a blessing every day, then on NYE you read them all and remember all the blessings God gave you during the year.  Well, I started it, then as often happens with me, it never became a habit.  It was a good idea that just never went anywhere.

But I will have a few blessings to count.

Learning how to use a flash being one of them.  If I can figure out how to get the papers out.  I didn’t think about that part either.

At least I can enjoy looking at a pretty vase.

News flash, sloggers can become better photographers!  Especially when they stumble upon features that they didn’t know were there, but are oh so helpful.  Who knew?
