Happy Holidays

We have been blessed to have family visiting over the holidays. It has been warm and rainy but it cleared up over the Christmas and the weekend so we could do some family activities.
We tried not to stay up too late the night before but that didn't go so well. Christmas morning came a little too soon, my body didn't want to get moving at all. Hubby's brother offered to make breakfast for everyone so we were in a rush to get out to their place. We had just enough time to stop and take a few photos at one of the historic houses in town. I find it hard to get photos of the historic district on my own since most of the buildings are businesses, I have to wait till weekends and holidays and if Hubby is with me it is an extra bonus so I don't have to lug my tripod around.

My new tattoo is almost healed now and I don't think I lost much to any color.
The Chesley House was built in 1895 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

I slacked in picture taking on Christmas, I didn't get any pics of the tree or presents.

Saturday we made a family trip to the Tallahassee Museum. The white squirrels were out and  about, often you don't even see them.


The farm animals were being extra cute.
This lovely lady is one of two Texas Cougar cubs that the museum recently purchased. They just went on display last week and I was glad we were able to see them while they still had a few of their baby spots.
Bobcat belly! This fellow was sunbathing in the very tip top of the trees in the afternoon to catch the best rays.
Even with all the recent rainfall the lake is still down so you can see all of the plesiosaur.
The farm had reenactors while we were there. One of which was working on this lovely dresden plate quilt made with 1930s fabric. I would have loved to stayed around to talk to the woman quilting but she was busy answering questions of several people that knew absolutely nothing about quilting. I have a hard time remembering that a great number of people know nothing about crafting or sewing of any type. I was lucky to have been raised around it and am from a long time of quilters and seamstresses, and while I don't enjoy quilting myself (although I have made a number of quilts over the years) I enjoy talking about it with other quilters.


Happy Holidays and have a safe and joyous New Year!
