Here We Go Again!

Happy New Year everyone! My only resolution this year is to figure out how to make 2011 the best year ever for myself and others. We have two significant milestones in our family this year (parents turning 80!) that we look forward to celebrating this summer. On the other end of the spectrum, we have two friends who have recently brought new babies into their lives – another reason to celebrate! Hubby and I have started our plans for special times throughout the year – coming up a Valentine Snowshoe Hike in February… I think I am off to a good start.
Meanwhile, we had a wonderful time over the holidays. Family gathered for a lovely Christmas and some cool gifts (more on that later). Then it was off to our “second residence” for a much needed break.
At the beginning of the week there was lots of snow on the ground – but fortunately not too much for us to travel through (unlike other parts of the world).
While it was cloudy for the most part we did have some have some nice days.
Very pretty sunsets - these are from two different evenings.
As you can see from the Icehouse – what a difference a week makes! Temperatures were in the low 40s by the time we left!

Even Miss Gwendoline had a good time - here she is "shakin the bacon" - funny girl.

And as you recall from our November trip - here is our "storage area" for the canoe (LOL)...
I also had time for “art” stuff – some additions to my glue books (I think the young lady is miffed about the size of the dog).

And also a couple of ATCs.
Now it is back to our regular schedule and catching up with email, blogs, etc. Look forward to sharing a wonderful 2011 with all of you! Here we go again...Jewels
P.S. I cannot believe I have now had over 10,000 friendly visits to my blog – time for a giveaway to celebrate. More to come!
