Happy New Year


We always spend a quiet evening at home...usually with family...have a lovely, long meal...usually fondue...and reflect on the past year. We have a file of our memories going back almost 20 years. Each person who brings in the New Year with us tells us their memories from the year...some good, some not so good...but things we want to remember.

Every New Year's Day, we put the file away. It doesn't come out until the next New Year's Eve, when we pick some years to review before we start recording our memories from the past year.

This year has had it's challenges...radiation treatments (me), shoulder surgery (me), 3 major knee surgeries (John) and months and months of physio (both of us)...but we both consider ourselves very lucky...and loved. Here's to a New Year!

Wishing you and John a happy and healthy 2012. Ginette loved her window. Exactly what she loves - daisies and dragonflies.
