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 :)

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.

Maude Lynn said...

I've wondered if those gloves work!

Full-On-Forward 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.

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
