meant to post this before the Colorado trip. It was the last couple of days of summer here in Illinois and we hit 90 degrees and had a final afternoon/evening summer storm. Fields of gold.

For what it's worth it was a pretty impressive lighting storm in the distance, it just wouldn't play for the camera like i wanted.

Is this your backyard? That's a nice shot! It needs some Moby background music to be perfect.

This is my local forest preserve where I go running.


@Bosco this is so soothing. Were you guys impacted by the heavy snow storm as well?

Here's a literally very brief moment of our's

This happens when the tree someone bought is so unevenly grown that it can essentially, in hindsight, only be set up in a what feels like a 45° angle. Well, it at least waited for us to finish handing out the gifts until it dropped and luckily the dog was not at her spot.

Actually wasn't that big of a snowfall, but it was blizzard-like conditions, followed by, out-of-season freezing wind and temperatures. 

The 23rd through Christmas Day Morning, our heater struggled to keep the house above 65° F (70-72° is typically normal), but we were one of the lucky people in the area were it didn't quit on us. There was also the risk of water pipes bursting if it got too cold in the house, but thankfully it didn't succumb to that.

We've had freezing weather before, it just was exceptionally gusty which then gave way to some of the most extreme wind chill I've ever experienced. Wind chill really takes "feeling cold" to another level.

Anyway, when we are confronted with freezing weather, it typically comes in late January or February here in Midwest. But yeah, without a doubt, the coldest Christmas in my lifetime.


Lol about the tree. I can say I've had that happen before!

Here in central Europe, it was the exact opposite, it was really warm and sunny during the holidays.
Around 10 °C most of the time, and on NYE a town near where I live had an new all-time record of nearly 20 °C.


Bosco and Csar, those are very festive decorations and Christmas sweaters :)
Fortunately, our cats are largely disinterested in our Christmas tree, apart from sometimes napping underneath it.

GUYS! dunno where's best to put this, In chemspotting or here, but I KNOW you guys are gonna love this!




Went upstate to return a few christmas shirts that didn't fit me, at the outlet mall where they came from, I decided to browse and made a pit stop at this toy & boardgames shop (that also had a few soda fridges of all things), and in the corner above a few anime plushies stood this bad boy. the other toys on display were for sale for $30, but this little guy had no tag.

guys at the counter told me all of them were for sale but were glad to do a price check for the box (it turns out the tag was under his foot instead of the box LOL). turns out, it was on sale $5 off ...



Knowing you guys, I knew you'd get a kick out of this. Mint condition, Key and everything.

to preserve his condition, he is now resting above my shelf back in his box. (tho I can't promise I won't release him upon my household, every once in a while). MONEY WELL SPENT

Love the way to composed your shot! It's as if she looks at her fellas on TV, sparkling her desire to join her species. Be careful when she frees herself!

I've been having to ration the amount of kibble Dewey eats.

He shows up like this every hour.
