Happy New Year!

Well here we are, some of us in the deep freeze, as the world keeps turning toward the morning. I’ve had a lovely 12 days off work, some of that with family, cooking, talking, visiting with friends. The last few days I’ve had at home–more cooking, lots and lots of rest and a little bit of knocking long-standing tasks off a much ignored list.  In the new year, I want to read more, meditate more, exercise more, and in general, take better care of myself.  So best wishes to all of you. If you have set intentions for the new year, I wish you well with them.  If not, I wish you well in whatever fills your days.

    I love your 4 season shots – I’m looking longingly at seed catalogs and old photos of summer days. Gosh, it is SO cold! This ought to knock down a lot of ash borers and wooly adelgids at least! 😉

  3. Happy new year, Lisa! It’s sound like you’ve had a restful time off of work, and plenty of time to catch up on rest and your to-do list. Reading more is on my list for this year. I read so many blogs, that my book reading takes a back seat. I’m going to try and balance that a bit more. xo

    Thank you for your photos, good thoughts and kind wishes. I too will listen to my body and pace myself; I think I will go gentle, rather than rage 🙂

    Good luck in 2018! I’m glad you’re knocking things off your list…I’m not doing that, my list just keeps getting longer.

    “World keeps turning toward the morning”–Are you quoting the song by Gordon Bok here?? Do you know this song? It’s a beauty and perfect for this time of year. Anyway, have a beautiful new year, Lisa!

      Thanks, Brenda! I hope you aren’t to close to the coast and buried in blizzard snow. It’s a very unpleasant temperature here in Virginia. You’ll have several fewer degrees on tap for sure. Stay warm. Luckily you always have dog warmers available…

  12. Thank you, Lisa. Glad you had some time away from the hustle and bustle. Your intentions sound quite like mine, so perhaps we can encourage each other along the way. Happy new year!

    Happy New Year Lisa ! I’m with you on the ‘rest up’ part. When it’s cold and dark for a good part of the day, primal DNA kicks in and I just want to sit in the cave with a warm fire 😀 I’ve actually been a bit sick the past few days, so I’m now way behind any ‘imaginary to do list’ I had in my brain. I’m hoping to recover soon and start sewing! xo Cheers Dear
