Christmas was lovely and it was nice to se so much of our family, but it was the week of New Year's - being back in our own home, nothing to do but what we wanted, snow and bitter cold - that was the real vacation. It was delightful to spend half the morning dozing and the other half wondering what we should do all day. We rested, birdwatched, crafted, project'd, and ate (a little bit, not too much.) It was lovely, and here are some snaps to prove it. In the order in which they appear, but not that they happened: blueberry muffins, birdie muffins, Christmas lights are all still up, having a crisis of the wrong shade of yellow, hoppin' john, two new yellows, snow on the sedum, yesterday's nature walk.
Happy NEW YEAR!
