Happy New Year

(after dinner round the tree)

We are all back to the small rock (it is green and bursting with flowers at the moment)
Just in time for school to begin tomorrow. 
Our adventure into the snowglobe of Wisconsin was like some kind of dream, candlelit dinners with many near and dear. Sledding hills and late night walks under that blue stillness of moonlight on snow. 
Sleeping late (eight counts as late in my world),  
sitting next to the fireplace putting together small pieces of a puzzle (perhaps an overly ambitious one) sipping eggnog or hot toddies. 
Slowing down felt wonderful.

Coming home...to our noisy alley. and our little home.
The kitty safe, well cared for and rounder. The inlaws open arms
and ready for that bubble of little voices.
Yes coming home
can be a kind of sweetness too. 

Now facing work- the hard bit.. 
I hope to post and visit others but I fear these next few months will be again running to stand still... 
I will do my best. 
I hope you have enjoyed the turning of another year and that there are some tender memories you too are folding away for a rainy day. 
Happy 2011  


  1. Your picture looks so warm and cozy, I'm glad you had a good holiday...best wishes for a Happy New Year!

  2. Welcome back Home!
    Glad to read you had a wonderful time with your family! I'm still in Iowa for another few weeks. (change is in the horizon I'm afraid, but trying to take it all in, it's a New Year after all.) Take your time settling in, getting back into your routine and when you are ready we will be here waiting. Cheers to Twenty Eleven!

  3. Glad to have you back writing again.
    Beautiful tranquil picture of your Christmas tree.
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

  7. Welcome home Juniper... I am glad you had warm arms to welcome you home, and a safe and happy kitty (that is ALWAYS my worry when I travel). Wisconsin sounds like a beautiful place too.
