Need Help

Ibiza 2006 - Day 15:  Dawn of the last day

To all my wonderful readers…

I need your help! I have been blogging for 4 years. I am now tired of my blog title. (Dawn’s Blog) That is a little boring. Yeah, it’s got my name and it is a blog….but, yawn. I need to spice it up a little. Would you help me? I know I have such intelligent, funny, and creative readers that could come up with something better than that lame title. I promise, if I use your idea, I will give credit where credit is due. I am also not above bribery. I am giving a (nice!) gift to the one whose title I choose to use, to show my undying love and appreciation.

Leave any title entries in the comments section.

Lights! Camera! Freezing!

Christmas lights in a residential neighbourhoo...

The plan was to dazzle the night with our pretty icicle lights. This past Monday evening my husband said to me, “I’ve got some time…let’s go out and start hanging the Christmas lights on the porch.” (You know, before it’s actually Christmas!)
1. In a snap I threw on my coat, scarf, ear flap hat with a tassel on top, and my gloves. Oh yeah, and my boots. Baby, I was ready for action.

2. Scott and I had untangled the lights as best we could.

3. Scott got on the ladder to hang the icicle lights around the bottom of the roof on our front porch. He is the man!

4. I was the “helper”.

5. If he needed anything up there.

6. Um…he did most of the work and I was his moral support.

7. In this lighting endeavor.

8. It was freezing cold. Literally.

9. The wind was blowing.

10. And it was dark.

11. And we were outside in it.

12. The cold had numbed our brain cells.

13. Merry Christmas.

14. As I was losing feeling in my fingers, and Scott had no ears left…..

15. I stuck my head in the front door.

16. And yelled for my son to run and get my camera.

17. It’s important to take pictures of these type of family events. For posterity’s sake. Really.

18. I jumped off the porch, telling my hubby to just keep working, even as I took video footage.

19. I had to walk down the yard, to get the full effect.

20. The snow was blowing.

21. If I slipped, I might possibly not be found until the Spring thaw.

22. Found with a video camera frozen to my hand.

23. Footage of my man hanging lights.

24. How pretty they look!

25. Wow. That was hard work. I’m tired.
