Happy New Year! And Thanks.

First, let me apologize for being so absent the last couple weeks. I’m having computer problems = I’ve been rather frustrated. Anyway – THAT being said;

Can you believe the year is gone? I’m still pondering that. It’s been quite a year too. I officially retired from my regular job. And it’s wonderful! I’ve learned some gardening and cooking and craft techniques and been adventurous trying new food techniques.

And I’m looking forward to a new year, full of new ideas and new promises. Adventures are waiting to be had and discoveries are beckoning come.

So to all of you I want to thank you. Thank you for being a part of our party each week. Thank you for sharing my posts and visiting my blog. You are what drives me to keep blogging.

And to all of you I wish a year full of amazing adventures and beautiful memories.

Happy New Year
