The Sky Says It All 1/1/11

Sunset was absolutely stunning from my window yesterday.
Such bright colors and luminous clouds reflecting them, is an artists' dream.

I found this to be a good omen for the New Year and decided to take a photo.

We had no snow to speak of but one can see the roof tops sprinkled and frozen.
The streets are quiet but it seems the stores were all quite busy.

Our Canucks have been kicking butt lately and became so interesting to watch especially when they played the Black Hawks, my cousins' home team. She is so passionate about them and very annoyed when they lose. lol

Today we watched Pittsburg vs the Washington Capitals. Washington won.
The young lady who sang the American National Anthem, did such a fantastic job.
She hit all the high notes so well it was a pleasure to hear her sing.
She is on her way to becoming famous with that voice.

My roast was excellent and we have plenty of leftovers for today. lol
So an easy day for me. :)

The only thing that is not so good is that the day is very chilly and it gets warmer at night.
Go figure.

Husband Down

A husband and wife are shopping in their local Wal-Mart.

The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart.
'What do you think you're doing?' asks the wife.
'They're on sale, only $10 for 24 cans he replies.
'Put them back, we can't afford them demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping.

A few aisles further on along the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.

What do you think you're doing?' asks the husband.
'Its my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,' replies the wife.

Her husband retorts: 'So does 24 cans of Budweiser and it's half the price.'
He never knew what hit him.
