    • Hi Jodie. I think its a 5 footer. But it has a tall base stand which brings it up higher. I love it! best tree I ever had. Self lighted too! Thank you.


    • Thanks Retro. I absolutely love it! It’s a wonderful, happy, tranquil color. Reminds me of the sea/ocean. Thank you for your comment.


  1. Oh, Cindi, I was holding out for ‘no flu’ but alas, that didn’t happen. Hope you had a mild case. I am hearing of so many who had the flu shot and yet contracted the flu. Hope by now you are feeling much better and able to make new plans for a trip to New York.

    Love the blue accent wall. Really, really pretty and peaceful. You make a mean lasagna…how delish! And set a pretty holiday table. No wonder you were exhausted…and that exhaustion probably led to catching the flu.

    We have a farmer’s market but it isn’t much to write home about. I like the idea of the veggie boxes. Might try a new vegetable that way.

    Happy new year.


  2. Hi Cindi! Just catching up with my blog reading. I hope you are feeling much better by now. I’m so sorry you got sick. We are back from our cruise, and I don’t think I could have planned a better week! Sunshine every day with temps reaching the high 70s. Thankfully we all stayed healthy before and during the trip. We are home now and I am exhausted. Wondering if I’m going to get sick now that I’m home. Hopefully not. Happy New Year! I have a feeling 2018 will be your year. 🙂 To health, prosperity and good health!


  3. I am so sorry about your haircut, but what a hilarious description! I love blue and love all your blue themes. Oh and the sunset!! Wow! Boooooo Flu!

    • Hi gwingal. I was surprised that most hairdressers I frequent couldn’t get Katy Perry’s haircut down. I brought in several pictures. The main problem was cutting my top too short (grrrr) and one side was longer than the other (double grrrrrr). I tried to correct it myself, but no luck. Thankfully my hair is naturally curly so, with a little mousse I was able to fake something together. Ugh anyway!
      The sunsets here are amazing almost every night. Can’t get enough of them! And I’m in love with the color blue (and yellow) Blue brings me peace. Yellow makes me happy.
      Thanks for your comment.

    • Hi Teri. Welcome back too! I don’t know about the email thing or how to follow that way. Did it go into your spam or junk mail file? Give a look. If not, subscribe. That’s I know works.
