Sweet Nothings

Vintage Christmas angel visiting sleeping girl. (late 1800's. Nat. Archives of Norway (, artist life/

Nothing more nostalgic than a vintage Christmas Angel delivering gifts…and people said “big hair” was a Dallas original. Nothing further from the truth. (Nat.Archives of Norway/USPD/

Nothing. That’s what I’m getting.

Nothing on the back burner

Nothing on the schedule

Nothing pending

Nothing on the docket

Nothing left behind


Nothing daunting

Nothing to shout about

Nothing to make a fuss over

Nothing to sneeze at


Nothing left to the imagination

Nothing doing

Nothing more. Nothing less

To know from nothing. That would be something

And I get that.


Nothing could be better.

Nothing could be fine-ah than a blog vacation at this time-ah.

So nothing to see here, freeing you up there.

Wishing you nothing less than all the best of Christmas and this holiday season.

Hasta later. Jingle on!

Phil, the Philosopher Mouse of the Hedge

      Nothing is better than time with friends and family (Oh, OK some of them are friends)…Molly is looking forward to some romping doggy reunions. We are planing to be free flowing with time, space, and events. Don’t let no nothing get in the way of your that enough double negatives to say it happily? HaHA (Like the two Weims aren’t capable of barreling through any nothingness standing in the way of joy!) Merry Christmas and thanks for your presence!

    Will you have your vacation in Carolina? A morning seems a bit short for that, though.
    I would love to be doing nothing, but we have been left with all sorts of tasks to perform, and that means I will want to blog them. *resigned sigh*

      While we have family near there, no. Retreating far from noise and chaos for some free flowing days – those a real gift people should give themselves more often? Small tasks are what make up most of life – and blog posts – it’ll be fun and humorous to read about for us.
      Started to add the Nothing song (…but unlike Shirley, Molly hasn’t been bad!So nuthin’ doing with that one.
      Merry on Enjoy the chaos!

    Love the angel, by the way!

      Old cars/postcards are the history of the ordinary people – the stuff that shows how things really were. Maybe they will be the focus of a college history or sociology course someday. Glad you got a grin
