Goldfinger, oranges and singing anyway

- See the gold forefingers on the new gloves I got for Christmas?  This was the most interesting present I received - gloves that are touchscreen compatible!  I think they've thought of everything now. 

- Bringing a bushel of Florida oranges in to the crew at work and loving the smell of oranges throughout the building all day.

- Admiring the birds for singing in the trees even though it was a cold, dark and rainy morning.

FL oranges, yum. I've got to find glove like yours. I think they sound so cool. Do they work? Welcome back and welcome back to work. :)

Lynn~ Burrr. It is cold and W-I-N-D-Y here. Interesting gloves; didn't know that they made those! (The winds were howling at 45 MPH last night.) Wow. We have a wee bit of snow and ice as well. It's here.

Lynn said...

happygirl -

They do work - there might be the rare occasion when I have to use the phone when I'm wearing gloves, and this way I'll be ready. :)

I was back on Monday and went back to work Tuesday - had the road all to myself for the most part at 7am.

It got down to the low 30s here last night - I pulled in the big fern. It got to stay outside for a whole week though, so it's not shedding quite as much. There was hard ice on my windshield this morning, but I'm warm here at work now. :)

Cool gloves, Lynn!

TALON said...

Neat gloves. I think birds are eternal optimists :)

Sparkling Red said...

I would love to have a pair of those gloves. I see teenagers with bare hands working away at their little screens at the bus stop, but I don't have the hot blood that they do. My hands stay in my gloves and my phone stays in my pocket.

Mama Zen said...

I've wondered if those gloves work!

John McElveen said...

Cool gloves-my dad was a Citrus grower in Fl!

Happy New Year Lynn-

LOVE the Gloves--they are awesome.


40 mph winds here and 1 1/2 inches of rain!

LL Cool Joe said...

Very clever gloves. I don't have a phone so I can't see myself wearing anything like that but I may well check them out for my daughters.

Riot Kitty said...

Neat gloves! Even if they weren't practical, they would be cool-looking.

Lynn said...

FB -

I know - pretty cool.

Talon -

Yes they are. Why they are not hanging out in Costa Rica is beyond me. :)

Sparkling Red -

It's way colder where you are so I can understand the gloves on hands in the pocket at the bus stop.

Mama Zen -

They do!

John -

You are having a blustery day, sounds like! These oranges are from Umatilla, Florida.

Joe -

They seem to come in all colors, too - my sister knows I wear black coats and jackets.

Riot Kitty -

I think so, too.

G said...

Love the smell of fresh oranges.

And the gloves are cool too.

Chatty Crone said...

I like the smell of the oranges, the seeing past the rain, and I've never seen the gloves - seems awesome.


Snaggle Tooth said...

Looks like you get to keep fingers warm while scrolling thru apps- nifty gift.
Love the smell of oranges too- Nice of you to do that every year!
Songbirds are a gift to cheer us with their chirps-

Lynn said...

G -

The orange smell just reminds me of winter. It's lovely.

Sandie -

I hope I don't lose those gloves - I have a propensity to do that. I like them very much.

Snaggle -

Songbirds are a sweet gift.

Louvregirl said...

Oh Oh. The big fern is in!

Louvregirl said...

Well-now it can s-n-o-w in Atlanta!!
Stand back!

I told it last night that it has a weird shape now. It's going to be a long winter. :)

Lynn said...

And you are funny! :)

Granny Annie said...

Okay now I know what to get all my family members for Christmas next year. Somebody is going to make a fortune with that glove idea.

Stick a few cloves in an orange or two and wrap them in decorative net to hang in your break room. Lovely holiday scent.

Obviously those birds don't have a king to let them sleep until 10 AM LOL
