I love your blog. Glad you will be feeding it more. :)

My, aren't you… tangy (nicer than astringent).

Steve and I give each other the same gift, and it is the best gift ever.

Here is to your year of Hope.


Love the pictures!

I haven't picked out a word for the year. My goal is to work on self-love.
Looks so silly when you see it written.

My husband and I do not exchange Christmas gifts. We decided this year if anyone started hasseling us about our decision we could either claim the new storm door or the new toilet. Touching isn't it?

Happy New Year!


My husband and I do the Christmas gift thing, I love getting and giving gifts.

My word for the year is "breathe." As in, take a minute and just breathe. Before you blow up, breathe. Before you get overwhelmed between scouts, work, kids sports, etc, breathe. Just take a few minutes and breathe. My mantra.


To quote a Canadian politician:

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.

Go forth in hope and change the world.


Hurray for blogging more! And this-- "It sounds sort of fluffy, but I'm finding it sort of rigorous, to be honest" --is spot on.

Glad you are back! You have been missed!

  • I felt that I was packaging something as delicately pervasive as smoke, one box after another, in that room, where my only duty was to describe reality as it had come to me – to give the mundane its beautiful due. -John Updike
