Happy New Year 2010


My husband and I will be home tonight with sleeping granddaughters. We’ll enjoy a quiet evening with a late simple supper of turkey soup, then some games or a movie, accompanied by some Christmas baking and chocolates, some Finnish lakka or cloudberry liqueur and whatever strikes our fancy. The bottle of champagne may not get opened for it’s too much for the two of us. We’ll save it for a special birthday, I think.

Last night I noticed a brilliant moon emerge for a while from the cloud cover and had hopes we might see the blue moon tonight. No, it is raining but I hope some of you will see it.

I’m over the flu but still too tired to compose anything profound as a year end post, but I’m enjoying so many others. As always, especially at these milestones on the calendar, I’m thankful for the many good things in my life even as these markers of time’s passage make me feel older every year!

Thank you to all of you dear friends and readers for the past year’s delights. I wish you all a New Year of Happiness, Good Health, Inspiration and Abundant Creativity! Hauskaa Uutta Vuotta! Bonne annĂ©e! Allen ein frohes Neues Jahr!
