Snow, Solstice and Silence


Hello dear ones!  I'm still under the electronic thumb of a power-surging laptop and waiting for my second power cord to arrive (it's been three weeks since I ordered the new cord - thank you holiday postal service.)  I've been keeping up as much as possible via Twitter and Facebook, but blogging via my cute little vintage iPhone 3GS is not practical.  I'm going through withdrawals and rather blue about missing all the holiday happenings here in Blogland.

I do hope everyone had a wonderful Solstice and a gorgeous (and not too stressful) holiday season.  I know it is not over yet - new year's eve is just a few days away.  My secular new year celebration is usually pretty calm.  Some kind of observance or ritual is usually done at home and often I simply get together for snacks and movies with friends.  This year, I purchased Leonie Dawon's super-cool 2013 workbook, so I'll be getting a start on that little gem too.


The snow is falling daily here in The Valley.  It then melts, freezes, melts again, and then snows again.  It is beautiful and cold and wet and dangerous and then just slush.  I feel the same.  Moving, changing, shedding things I don't need, melting and solidifying.  This time of year is often difficult for me, but for now I'm feeling very excited about 2013 and what is to come.

I've got a bit more fix-up to do here at the blog.  I seem to have erased some old photos by mistake, and am taking this as a hint to go back through the years and clean up pics that are not linked or properly accredited.   I'm looking forward to spending some time here digging around and mending posts.  It's interesting to see where three plus years of blogging have brought me.


I am praying to the postal gods for a delivery before the new year, but if I don't get back here in good time I'd like to wish you all a very happy new year.  I hope 2013 brings you every good thing!  Thank you all for stopping by my little blog.  Your presence, comments and your own blogs make this little corner of the interwebs a wonderful place to be!  Cheers!

I hope you have a lovely wee nip of something on New Year's Eve to welcome in 2013!

Rue, how very frustrating, I am totally sympathetic. Hope that you get the laptop straightened out soon.

Where do you live in the interior?
