Pin It

The tree is gone. It's as if Christmas never happened. I often feel a bit of a let down after Christmas, but this year is different. Maybe it's because it seemed to have come earlier this year. Maybe it was because we had snow. Whatever it was I'm looking forward to the new year. January is like a fresh blanket of snow. No footprints. There's so much possibility. You just want to run out and make your mark. I can see why New Year's resolutions are so appealing.

My resolutions are probably like a lot of people's: get in shape, eat better. I'm also striving to finish the projects I start and try not to take on more than I can handle. Rather difficult for me, I'm afraid. And of course, read more.

Tomorrow is my blog's first anniversary. I can't believe I've been doing this for a year. I've learned so much and met so many people through blogging. It's been a great experience. I can't wait to see what the New Year brings. It's inspired me to change the look of my blog. I still have some kinks to work out though. I hope all the readers who have been kind enough to drop in and comment keep coming. Reading your comments is the best part of blogging.


  1. Happy Blogiversary! Mine is on the 4th. It seems a lot of us started at about the same time.

  2. Can we need see the word snow? I just wanted it dropped from the vocabulary right now because it is snowing outside AGAIN, and this is the third time in like a week, and they are not little snows. This one, they are not really sure about, though, they said it was a severe weather warning and then they said we were only supposed to get five centimetres. I guess I will find out when I peek out the window tomorrow!

    That was long-winded. Anyways, happy new year Chris! And, Happy Blog Anniversary as well, just in case I am not around tomorrow. (I'll be buried in snow, although, people are saying you guys might get hit pretty hard too. Not that the weather around here ever really knows what they are talking about...)

  3. Happy Blogiversary! Congrats on completing your first year, and I look forward to the coming year.

  4. Happy Blogiversary! Mine was yesterday. And you are right, the best part of blogging is the interactions with others!

  5. Happy Blogversary! It is incredible in this little universe isn't it?!

    gosh, it looks like you had a touch of snow! heh..always nice to "look at"!

  6. That's a beautiful picture. I love the New Year. Not so much for resolutions, but you get to make a fresh start. At least in my mind;-)

  7. Happy blog anniversary! One year sure does fly by!

  8. K- We didn't get it so badly though I hear the roads are a mess. How did you make out? I try not to listen to the weather since they never seem to be right.

    3M- Happy Blogiversary to you too!

    Thanks for all the well wishes, People!
