the end

The end of christmas
The end of the year
The end of the decade (decade? Just writing that word makes me feel old...)

I've had a wonderful time away, gathering together with family and friends. Meals shared, presents given and received, glasses raised, jokes told amidst much laughter, games played....you get the picture. And no doubt you shared your own version, too. Walter especially loved the snowy bits. What is it about snow that makes a dog go nuts?


Now I'm hibernating. I'm tired from two very long journeys, and am enjoying that quiet 'in between' time before life kicks in again for real next week.

both photos taken on my car journeys - I love the light and the bare branches

Tonight there will be a little reflecting on what has been, and a little forward thinking about what is to come. What lies ahead? Who knows? That's what I love, the endless possibilities.

Happy New Year to you !
