Holidays Circling

 A   L   O   H   A  !

Look at how a single candle 

can both defy and 

define the darkness.

Thank you view much

I love this! Do you have one?

If the only tool you 

have is a hammer, 

it's hard to 

eat spaghetti.

So does that Santa in shorts and Hawaiian shirt mean that he's still in Hawaii resting up for the big night, or does it mean that global warming has progressed to the extent that he's changed his uniform? Love your holiday candles shining as lights in the darkness of the age. Pixie looks like she just woke up after dreaming of a white Christmas.

We have similar kitchen tools. And David Allen messed up the quote. It's, 'If the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail'. But you probably knew that. But it's a tool saying, so as a guy I had to correct it. It's on my man card.

Pixie looks very, very comfortable - which is right and proper.
I have different jar openers - and rely on them. One of the most effective is himself, but he isn't always available - and doesn't fit in the kitchen drawer.

Nice assortment of photos. Your cat is beautiful. Happy T-Day!

That tool to help with lids. I told MR. M. that I need one of those. I like this style I will have to look for it. Cute santa too. Have a very nice day.

Pixie looks like you woke her up! I make it a point of being able to open jars! Keeps me doing my weights!

The lid-opening tool is different from the one I have, but I do have one ;)

Happy T Tuesday!

I also LOVE that tool. I'm going to look for one, too. At first, I thought it was for removing the correct amount of spaghetti, a tool I DO have. I've heard the saying was "When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail."

You have a gorgeous Menorah and the Santa in shorts and flip-flops had me laughing.

I love how adorable Pixie looks today. Thanks for this cool tool you shared with us to open our drinks for T this Tuesday, dear Cloudia.

Santa looks less dressed than I'm used to.

I have that tool! Mine is red. Hello, Pixie! Happy T Day

Sandee said...

I want that jar opener. It tougher and tougher when you get older to get those jars open.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous day. ♥
