Time is rushing by again, disappearing. Gone is Christmas but forever in our memories those special moments will linger on for some time yet.
I am so thankful this winter to have Sheaba my new dog, because of her I go for walks everyday no matter the weather or how much snow. It is just a joy to watch her run and hunt. She has her days now where she is quiet settled in the house and comes in and out the door without having to put her on the leash. I finally found a treat she likes and has responded with a wagging tail. She is also wagging her tail when she sees us in the morning.
Yes those peaceful walks through the forest covered in snow. I am gone for hour everyday just walking our property with Sheaba.
The memories of Christmas going out to cut our tree. We found one that wasn’t the prettiest, but needed to be cut down as it was growing on one of our access roads.
The house was transformed again into a country Christmas look. It just glowed.
The snow outside brighten our view everyday.
Memories of were placed on the tree.
Each one brings peace to my heart.
But best of all I loved the lights and glow everywhere.
It was a special time for Sheaba as well. We had Cole for a week over Christmas so she was in heaven with a playmate during Christmas.
We also had company over Christmas and enjoyed long talks and even longer walks.
Coming back late after a long walk to see all the lights aglow around the house.
Saying goodbye to our friends and walking them back down to their car and giving it a push to get unstuck.
It had been a few years since we ventured away from home for New Years Eve, but we braved the snowy roads and joined a whole group of friends for an evening of dancing the night away. The hit of the party were a couple pair of sunglasses that everyone passed around. My hubby turned into Elton John for awhile when wearing them.
We didn’t get home that night till 4am and didn’t get out of bed the next morning till 11am and the sun was shinning so grabbed some coffee and we sat on the deck and enjoyed a beautiful New Years Day morning.
During the Christmas season I was busy creating free to share ECards for my Facebook page. I had sold most of my homemade Christmas cards and just didn’t have time to create more in time people to mail them so enjoyed the creative fun of making these ECards.
The likes, comments and shares help me to decide what cards I will make for next year into printed cards. If you haven’t been to my new Facebook page to follow my creations there please come for a visit and like the page.
We will be heading south to our winter home in the desert at the Salton Sea in California in less then a week, what a contrast it presents from our winter wonderland.
Looking forward to seeing how all our landscaping has grown and yes working on it again. Using the bike to visit friends who live there and walks on the beach. It truly is a different world down there. Will those sunrises get me out of bed again at 6am?
I will not have internet while down south for 3 months. As much as I love all I can do here and staying in touch with so many friends it is a good thing to be away from it for a while. Will try and get some posts out from our library there, I know I haven’t shared much while down there the last couple of winters. Hopefully I will have time to do that this year as most our landscaping and work is done and it will be just maintenance.
So wishing everyone a safe journey on your road of life and a
Happy New Year
and always have a
Good Morning…Good Afternoon…Goodnight…
Whatever it is to you.
