January 11, 2016


Well, yesterday was our last official holiday celebration. Dad and Julie came over for our Christmas get-together and also for Julie's birthday. It was great to catch up, enjoy treats and open presents! One thing is clear - our family hearts books!


I'm super excited to take Carla Sondheim's new year long class Y is for Yellow. I worked a bit this weekend on getting materials prepped for the year and looking forward to diving into the first class.


It's been a rough time but I did get out for a walk with Reg in Central Park. It has been cold, you can see the back half of the lake has frozen, the seagulls are sitting on the edge. There was a guy who skipped pieces of ice across the surface and it made the weirdest "wooing" sound I have ever heard, almost like a theremin. Mostly rested this weekend but it was good to get out for a walk in one of my favourite places.

What a beautiful photo, Suzie. Sometimes some fresh air and a nourishing place is just what we need. I had to look up what a theremin was though, lol!

For a moment I was like...who's arm is that? And then I realized it was mine! Lol. It was great to have a holiday celebration and catch up with everyone and exchange presents too. And what a cake! Good pick there Jamie :)

Wow, that looks like a gorgeous spot Suzie! And oddly beautiful to see all the frozen bits on the lake with all the birds there too. Feels very winter-y.

Late add from me
