Let The Light Shine Through


We gathered with friends tonight, old and new, and made cookies. I won the 'how quick can you make the cookies' unofficial contest because I make a no bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookie (my family has called them bull____ cookies for forever) that took me all of 15 minutes. My wife's sugar cookies took the entire afternoon and evening - it's the decorating that takes all the time...

I had plenty of time to sit and ponder the things around me. I watched a bit of football, but not being an avid fan, it only held my interest for short spurts. When my friend brought out his latest shot glass in his collection, my mind turned on. It is a fully leaded crystal shot glass with a small glass ball in the bottom of it. That glass, in combination with their Christmas tree just lit up my brain.... I give credit to Dr Sheila Cason (www.drcason.org) for the thought process entering my brain as she has a contest on her site now - All About The Holidays.

I then spent sometime underneath their Christmas tree, taking photos. This was my favorite ornament on their tree:
Thank you Sheila for turning my brain on to this!

I love the way the lights shine behind the glass too!

I too walk around and see things differently now. One of the best things is to grab a glass of wine and cull through the last few months photos. There is always a good unexpected find!

THANK YOU....
I took this after a couple of glasses of wine... so I get the correlation!
