A Brand New Year

It's been a while since I blogged and I don't even know why. I've just been so busy I guess. Christmas was a wonderful success for us. It snowed. A beautiful wet- stick to everything - kind of snow. It was a real treat for my sister and brother-in-law from Houston.

We also had an ice fog one day while they were here. If you've ever see an ice fog, you know just how beautiful they are. Fortunately, we didn't have to travel on either day. The ice fog left about an inch of fuzzy crystals on everything.

We spent New year's Eve watching the Marx Brothers movies all evening. I fell asleep on the recliner about 11:00 so I went to bed early. I felt pretty sure the New year would come whether I stayed up or not. My husband and son stayed up to usher in the new year for me.

The Christmas tree is now taken down - only just a memory for another year. I vacuumed up the last of the pine needles and packed away the last box this morning. The beds have been stripped, the leftovers are eaten, the candies long gone, the trash has been picked up and life moves on. It's a brand new year after all.

I spent today cleaning and organizing my work room. I had left it in a heap making Christmas presents. I just closed the door to the guests and truthfully have not thought about it until today. Time to get back to work. Watch for a drawing later this month. It's been a while. I'm almost finished with the next Little Candle Mat. Hopefully this week I'll be posting pictures.


  1. Christmas was definitely fun this year! The snow made it even more festive. Good photos of the trees in your yard! Love, your daughter

  2. Beautiful pictures!

    We moved down here from OH so we miss the snow....a little bit, anyway. We don't miss shoveling the driveway and sidewalks and driving in it.
