This past weekend, Mr PoP realized that we were down about $40K in market value on our investments over the past week due to market losses.

One of the prettiest things I saw this month – a christmas tree decorated very simply and beautifully with lights and bromeliad plants. It was so very Florida – I loved it!

First pass at cushioning for the couch, plus a new rug! Sadly this isn’t the best picture because it’s night and it’s a little dark.
