The Holiday Antidote


A nice big fruit salad. Ahhhh! A welcome change from cookies and candy.

And here, for no reason whatsoever, a photo I took a few days ago in the late afternoon.


Like I said, no reason, except I like the light.

I’m still working on un-bloggable things, but hopefully that will change in a few days. Meanwhile Lucy is still on her holiday schedule.


If she were awake, she’d join me in hoping you all had a great holiday!


  1. I like the light in that photo too…Glad to hear your holidays were great..mine were awesome..I got a new grandson for Christmas this year..couldnt ask for a better gift.

  2. Hi Wendy,

    It sounds like you had a good holiday. My dog Kobe is still in the same prone state as Lucy, so I think they are having a good holiday as well. I hope you enjoy the fruit salad.

  7. The salad looks delicious!

    Looks like Lucy’s nap schedule has been maintained despite Momma being home on vacation! She’s quite adaptable.

  8. That fruit salad looks yummy. I hope you had a wonderful holiday too.

  9. Ooh – that fruit salad looks refreshing. I just noticed that the diet commercials are starting to advertise fast and furious. Hmmmm. I think I’ll go clean the house of all the remaining goodies.

  14. One of my favorite things to do is sprinkle a lil’ sugar on a fruit bowl and devour the whole thing! ^_^

    Ah, Lucy. Such a hardworking kitty! ^_~

  15. The fruit salad sounds really nice! Especially because I finished making the chocolate chip cookies and the rum balls yesterday, so I felt like I had a lot of sugar everywhere!

  16. Happy holidays to you, too. And here’s to a great 2009!

  17. You’ve got me going to the green grocer to make my own treat. Very appropriate after holiday visits with my fruit salad of a family

  18. The fruit salad looks very good — I only wish I liked cantaloupe. My BF does, but we have a hard time finding good ones this time of year. He says the imported ones have no taste. So he’ll be waiting till warmer days.

    I hope we’ll get to see pictures of the Un-Bloggables once they’ve been given away!

  19. No better reason for taking a photo! That fruit salad looks so yummy. I’ve been fighting a fierce cold – maybe I can ask SO to go to Whole Foods for fruit for me.

  20. Amen! It was salads for dinner for us tonight. Tastes so good after the sugar coma.
