We had a great time out celebrating at David & Sylvia's traditional New Year's Eve Eve party! It was a treat to see their newly renovated space and to catch up with everyone. Hugs abounded!!
In a mad dash to sum up and finish off the year before the year finishes, I spend a lot of yesterday vlogging and got 3 book centric vlogs done which of course was way too much. But that's what happens when I've not vlogged in a while! At least when I use my phone I don't have to edit or compress them. I was happy to get these done though, books and really has really meant a lot to me in 2014 and I really felt strongly about summing it up and sharing the experiences of the year. I hope people like them!
It was one of the last days of Michael's Boxing Day Sale and I convinced Reg to take me to Michaels. I know he was wary of doing so but I brought my puffer and discovered a Michaels that's actually quite close to us with a huge parking lot so we were off. I got yarn for hat-making but I also really wanted a keepsake box for the things I have from Mom. Reg found this one and I knew it was it! I inherited two peacock shirts from mom and they always remind me of Vancouver Island because of Hatley Castle and Mom and I had such a good visit when she came there. I think Mom also really taught me a lot about embracing the beauty of colour. I am so glad I found such a special box to honour things that remind me of Mom.
