Happy New Year 2011


Wishing you health, happiness, friendship, and the beginning of a better tomorrow. May all your wishes come true.

Here is one of my favorite quotes: In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, never in want. (Irish Toast)

And here is a sketch most Germans (including me!) watch on New Year's Eve: Dinner for One.

Happy New Year to all my Blogger, Flickr, and Facebook friends around the world. See you next year!

Winter Wonderland





It snowed all day yesterday and all through the night. We received another 5 inches of snow. It was all fluffy and light and looked so pretty on the trees. So I went outside in the morning and snapped these photos before it all came off the branches. 
* * *
Hope you all had a beautiful Christmas day. We had Christmas dinner with my son and his girlfriend. And I received a phone call from my dear friend David Henry.
* * *
Have a look at one of my friend's blogs Out On The Prairie, some wonderful photos and writings from the Midwest.
* * *
And here is more on the amazing Oogy.
* * *
Have a good week!

The fourth candle is lit

Today we lit the fouth candle on our Avent wreath. I love this wreath, I received it from my friend Kay. Have a look at her blog and her beautiful decorated house. I hope to meet her one day.
* * *
I also received a vase from her for forcing flower bulbs. I was very lucky to find a few more vases at a local gardening store and the bulbs are cooling in the refrigerator. If everything goes well, I will be showing you some photos of my flowering hyacinths next year.
* * *
Andrea, my beautiful and so talented crafter friend is busy crocheting her wonderfully warm scarves. She is making me one for Christmas and I have ordered two more for gifts.
* * *
Enjoy the season!...See you soon and stay warm!

Vacation to Florida and the Bahamas



Hello everyone! We are back from our second vacation and we had a great time. We left when it was very cold and during a snow storm. Started out an hour late, because the plane needed to be de-iced. Got to Ft. Lauderdale and it was 81 degrees Fahrenheit. Cannot beat that, to wear summer clothes in December. I could get used to that very easily. I love sunshine!
* * *
Have a look at the beautiful scarves my friend Andrea is making. I bet they will keep you warm.
* * *
Well, two more weeks and it's Christmas. I finally got all the gifts wrapped and the parcels into the mail. Hope they all make it there on time.
* * *
More snow is on the way to us. Hope you all stay warm and I will see you soon!
