Happy New Year!

Good evening! As I type this post, the year 2016 is drawing to a close---and snow flakes are gently falling from the black wintry sky. I do love snow if I don't have to drive in it or shovel it. 2016 had its low points, and days and weeks of pain, but it was not all bad. To me any year where I am with my friends and family and Mo, where I can sew and watch my ocean, is a gift to be treasured.

So let's enjoy each day! And welcome the New Year!

Happy 2017!



gone to the beach......

''For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, and love, and friends..."
 Be thankful, find joy.

                                         Ralph Waldo Emerson

and a hint of the promise: Spring will come...


  1. Daffodils??? You have daffodils???

    I can't get them here and they are my favorite flower. (OK, Double Delight roses are my very favorite, but I digress.) lol.

    And what a view you have from your house.

    Happy New Year and hugs.
