baldy hill homestead by Rachel (13)

passing through : One of my favorite by-products of a good snowfall is the tracks left behind by those who pass through Baldy Hill. Of course, there are ongoing glimpses and other signs of the critters that share our fields and woodlands, but never as evident as during winter. On a recent afternoon walk, we found prints human and canine — of course ... (posted Dec 16, 11:42am)

Loveladies : Jersey shore. (posted Dec 16, 10:19am)

Eric's!Daily!Horoscope! by Starzina Starfish-Browne (15)

The One Where Starzina Shows You How She Does It‏ : Here’s how one of these e-pisstles is created: first, We connect Our Etch-A-Sketch™ to Our eight-track tape player, and shove ‘em both into the Beta-Max™… (posted Dec 16, 10:04am)

Chaos Attraction by Jennifer (19)

A Discussion of Holiday Breakup Season : Best of Holidailies What we are arguing about here is whether or not there is a crucial difference between "break up before and ruin their holiday" and "break up after and ruin their holiday." (posted Dec 16, 9:41am)

this little life if mine by lisa-marie (11)

Teaser Tuesday: The Curiosity by Stephen P. Kiernan : I started a new book this morning! I don't remember why I bought it, but so far (10 pages in), it's pretty interesting! Cheers! (posted Dec 16, 7:55am)

Visible Woman by Linda Ball (19)

Today is Enough : If I simply enjoy being in this moment, able to type if not 'write' something, then I have all the peace I want or expect. (posted Dec 16, 6:06am)

Creative Output by Angela Brett (6)

Reviews of a Mid-air Movie Marathon : In which I review Boyhood, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, I Origins, The Giver, Edge of Tomorrow, and Predestination, as watched in approximately that order with approximately no sleep between or immediately before or after them. (posted Dec 16, 3:14am)

Funny the World by Bev Sykes (20)

Kissed by the Rain : I had not worn a coat. I was in a long sleeved shirt, slacks, and my ubiquitous Birkenstocks (in retrospect, perhaps the Birkenstocks were not a wise decision!). Of course I had no umbrella. (posted Dec 16, 12:40am)

Stariel Knits by Ariel (16)

Stocking Progress : The Christmas Stocking is taking form. I should do last minute Christmas knitting every year! ... or not. (posted Dec 16, 12:02am)

Ned the Duck by JFHobbit (19)

Day 15: Hump Day? : I know, I know, Hump Day is technically Wednesday of any given week. But for some reason, today feels like the Hump Day of the month. Especially this month. It's the last week of normal life, more or less, before the two weeks of Holiday. (posted Dec 15, 9:39pm)

Tuna News by Green Tuna (17)

Hashtag. You're It : Through the act of one person and a single tweet, a revolution of kindness spread across the Internet. (posted Dec 15, 9:18pm)

Shmuel's Soapbox by Shmuel (19)

Holiday Songs II: Chanukah : It is so wonderfully overproduced. The futuristic laser sound effects! The explosions! (posted Dec 15, 8:41pm)

MissMeliss: Bathtub Mermaid by MissMeliss (19)

Ziti : Sauce that simmered all day. Meatballs served with it. A blend of Parmesan, Romano, mozzarella, and provolone cheeses. Just the right combination of spices to make the flavors all pop in a complimentary fashion. (posted Dec 15, 7:38pm)

Red Nose by Bozoette (14)

Bingo! : One night my best friends, Brian and Sue, suggested that we go play Bingo at the local Knights of Columbus Hall. So we smoked up a couple doobies and headed up the road. (posted Dec 15, 6:19pm)

Patrick's Daily Journal by Patrick Cleary (19)

Closet : I'm really looking forward to seeing this one in action. After one rehearsal, I can tell it's going to shape up to be a very sweet, interesting show. (posted Dec 15, 6:07pm)

Where's My Plan? by JohnSherck (15)

Sleep : When one of us--usually the me of us--tries to put the younger one to bed, it's usually around 9 pm. Or 10 pm. Or 11:00 at the latest... by which I mean that if it gets to be 11:00, I figure why bother? and let her fall asleep on her own. (posted Dec 15, 5:55pm)

crickwooder chronicles by Stef (19)

the eyes of the squirrel are watching : “We should try to be asleep before the squirrels get here.” (posted Dec 15, 5:51pm)

Baking with Chickens by A Higgins (6)

Herding Cats, A Holiday Whine : The child is learning that her mother actually didn't sit around on her rumpous all day while she was at school, as evidently she'd believed before I got this job. I guess my previous jobs have had short enough hours that I've still been able to get most of the errands and chores done while she was in school. (posted Dec 15, 5:31pm)

baldy hill homestead by Rachel (13)

first flurry : It’s been snowing here again today, started off as soft flurries and then continued steadily all day. As I watched the snow fall, I was reminded of this poem — enjoy! First Flurry by Chung Dong-muk From the warm spring You passed through time Content in the green of summer Surrounded by the piles of persimmon leaves Autumn was so ... (posted Dec 15, 4:23pm)

Catchy Name Needed by Mel (19)

1976 - a classical interlude, more or less : I guess it was the year of the CB radio fad - one of the more inexplicable fads that I remember. There were a bunch of faddish songs that year too, like "Afternoon Delight" and I think "Squeeze Box" could sort of be considered one too, since it doesn't sound like anything else the Who did. (posted Dec 15, 4:07pm)

4callingbirds by Rob Rosenberg (19)

Which is Scarier: The Nutcracker or A Walking Dead Conventi : Tonight we explore why my family found The Nutcracker ballet more disturbing than a Walking Dead convention. (posted Dec 15, 3:42pm)

The Many Places of Bella by BellaTheCat (14)

Herding... me? : First you try to trap me.. now you want to herd me? (posted Dec 15, 2:29pm)

Valeroni by Mellie (17)

Cat Herding Day : I first saw today's prompt and thought it said cat HOARDING day. That I could write about. There once was a time when I was a kid and we had six cats, a dog, a bird, a rabbit, two or three chickens, and a duck. I guess that would be animal hoarding. Anyway, that's a moot point because as it ... (posted Dec 15, 2:22pm)

Fauxklore by Miriam (19)

Monday Kvetching : I am tired and grumpy today, which is, I suppose, suitable for a Monday. (posted Dec 15, 1:08pm)

Chaos Attraction by Jennifer (19)

Good Car News, Bad Car News : I'm not even going to try bailing out the water until the weekend because what's the point of trying now? (posted Dec 15, 11:12am)

Hat on Top, Coat Below by KarenD (19)

Three Books Behind : But the number is not really the point. I read because I enjoy it, because books entertain and inform me. Setting a reading goal is a way to say "this is important to me" and "I give myself permission to spend time on this". It works. (posted Dec 15, 10:31am)

Eric's!Daily!Horoscope! by Starzina Starfish-Browne (15)

The One Where Starzina Reviews Zac Efron Naked In Neighbors : Now, Lord Baby Jeebus knows, We are all about any excuse to sit and look at Zac Efron with no clothes on. In fact, when next We visit The Left Coast, We shall be pitching Our indie fillum script, Zac Efron Reads The Phone Book With No Clothes On... (posted Dec 15, 10:22am)

It's Too Complicated! : And here I sit, trying to write a blog entry. Why did I decide to dally with Holidailies? (posted Dec 15, 8:05am)

Scottish legends. : The title does not refer to me. (posted Dec 15, 6:53am)

what if this is as good as it gets? by Kwizgiver (15)

high school shenanigans : ...It never ceases to amaze me that high schoolers expect us to party or play games before holidays or vacations. (posted Dec 15, 6:40am)

Still Mindy by Mindy (12)

It's a girl! : Puppy Haiku: Her name is Piper. She loves to play with the kids. We bought a puppy! (posted Dec 15, 6:02am)

Knitting Friends : Today I met up with a friend from college, and knitting ensued. (posted Dec 15, 1:55am)

Doctored : I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry or stare at him in awe. (posted Dec 14, 10:55pm)

Holiday Songs I: Christmas : Apparently the Holidailies prompt back on the 11th was "What is your favorite holiday song (or alternatively, what is the worst holiday song?)" (posted Dec 14, 9:45pm)

MissMeliss: Bathtub Mermaid by MissMeliss (19)

Swing : I like big band, and the Great American Songbook - all those lovely, deliciously singable songs, and I highly recommend this album, which is available pretty much everywhere. (posted Dec 14, 9:41pm)

Dickens Fair : "I was watching Ellen. I had a glue gun. And this happened." (posted Dec 14, 9:32pm)

Undergrounds under the wire. : This is a gross one. And it's five minutes to midnight. So it's quality reading indeed. (posted Dec 14, 8:56pm)

Tuna News by Green Tuna (17)

Lucky 13 : After three years, I've finally made it past 13 posts in December. I should be kicking myself for being so lazy in the past, but right now I'm just happy to have made it over the hump. (posted Dec 14, 8:15pm)

Hat on Top, Coat Below by KarenD (19)

Quilt Show Flashback : After a couple/few days of feeling like I was getting over the sinus crud, it seems to be staging a comeback, leaving me once again with an extra fuzzy head and low energy. Instead of dwelling on that, let's instead look at some pretty pictures. (posted Dec 14, 7:43pm)
