I haven't written for two weeks about celebrating those little things that mean so much. I was busy doing little things. It's nearly time to return to work, and once I start, that will be celebrated, too. I've been into school once and will go again on Sunday to finalize all the plans.
My days have encompassed celebrating: Christmas with family, eating with family, shopping with family, greeting the new year with family. I've read favorite Christmas books, and other books that caught me unaware they were so good. I've cooked a little, mostly stew and pie, and eaten a lot, and I've chosen my ONE LITTLE WORD, to share later. I've bundled up in below zero weather, watched snow from home without needing to go out, and written more than one poem. It's been a superb break of days that are different from the usual, and I think that's the best thing to celebrate, new/different/diverse/unusual. The past days' memories will linger as I leap into the usual routine, and that too is good. Am I celebrating life? Yes, I suppose I am.
Happy New Year Everyone!
|Christmas! Carter is wonderful to take on these girls! They received Anna and Elsa|
costumes for Christmas.
|Ingrid, Carter and I tried out a new ice cream shop I discovered. Yum!|
|Christmas Eve at Sarah's.|
|Nathan, Barb, Carter and I saw the Cartier exhibit|
at the Denver Art Museum-shadows I liked, and reflections.
|Outside the museum, snow on the black sculptures was awesome.|
|We started going to Ikea on New Year's Day because there's almost|
none there, hence this photo of many, many empty carts!
