Ding, dong

NOT a sound one wants to hear late at night...the ringing of the door bell. We get up, turn on the light...and no one is there. Not once, but two freaking, annoying times!

In our sleep haze, we should have realized that the motion sensor lights had not come on, which would have happened if an actual person had approached the door, but who is thinking rationally under these circumstances? We did smarten up and unplug the dang ringer. Note to self: change the battery on the pusher button more frequently!

Happier news is that Joan, Jennie, Joy, and I all enjoyed friend Mary Ann's annual Christmas Tea at Charmed Accents yesterday, where we all managed to find a Christmas gift or two. And wonderful food, as always:

The photo would have been a little more interesting if that guy hadn't moved into the frame just as I snapped it as I was going out the door. There was a crowd of folks there, for sure.

We expect another cold front tonight to follow this all day rain. Oh yes, it is definitely December here in the GA mountains. High 60s is just a tease. We know it. Bugger. MM is still able to do some mowing and clearing up dead limbs and stumps and stacking to burn when the pile gets big enough. Yep, that guy stays busy and outta trouble. And that's a good thing!

He would rather mow than do any Christmas chores, like shopping, wrapping, decorating, etc. Smart guy, that MM is.

Have yourselves a ginger peachy day, despite any inclement weather. We sure will...or at least try!

We're having a freeze here. Really cold. It warms up a bit in the afternoon and then the sun goes down and the freeze returns. I hate the cold. Why can't I wear flip flops, t-shirts and shorts all year.

Have a terrific day honey and get those batteries changed. Big hugs to you and lots of scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥

Doorbells that ring by themselves...that's a scary thought! I hope mine never decides to do that. The shopping lunch was fun yesterday. I'm ready for lunch today...only a little less than an hour to go. Hugs!

Creepy dorrbell thing. I had to replace the smoke detector's and carbon monoxide thingy's battery last week. Annoying chirpy little things when they are hungry, but a godsend if you need them.

A Christmas Tea sounds lovely!

Stay warm. It's a glorious day here today. So far... Big hugs xoxo

Yes, it's been like a spring today in Central Georgia but the weather man said by Sunday it's going to be in the 40's again....burrrrrrrr!

I had no idea that the doorbell ringers went off when the batteries were low? I suppose they're like smoke alarms in that sense.

Cold as heck here. I hear it will start to warm up. Sorry the guy photo-bombed your picture. From what I saw it looked like fun!
