Yesterday, Dec 12th ended up biding a “no-device” Day; I took an early morning art webinar which, apparently, ended up eating all of Pixy’s battery juice. And then she wouldn’t charge up all day. And the more time I spent trying to fix her, the more devices went off-line and powered off.

Being a frustrating day yesterday’s song was Lindsey Stirling’s “Something Wild”.  From Pete’s Dragon, there’s some wicked violin in this song. Today’s prompts is “Chase the sky into the ocean, that’s when something wild calls you home“. 

It’s National Poinsettia Day … So perfect day to go holiday with Elmo & Patsy’s “Percy the Puny Poinsettia”   Today’s prompts is “Even a plant, with no uncle or aunt …“.
