Fourth day of the New Year and here I am, just now, with my first post of 2012. To go along with my belatedness, I somehow messed up my "comments" button when I changed my blog design. Fortunately, family members came to my rescue and everything seems to be back in order. Apologies to my dear followers who emailed me about the problem; and to those who gave up trying to comment. I will make every effort to keep the technological interruptions to an absolute minimum!
Happy New Year, by the way!! We had a fabulous time! Daughter Raethan and her husband were here, and there was a lot of love and laughter all the way around. Great ritual, with drumming and the fireplace glowing wonderfully. Good food (of which I was the cook, lol!!). Board games, gift opening, and a whole bunch of etc., etc., etc.!!
The very big news is that I received (drumroll, please...) a NEW CAMERA!!! A Canon PowerShot ELPH300HS. The gift tag read: "To Her Royal Highness of Bloggers; From Her Loyal Followers". Isn't that a hoot!! Love it! So I can now return to full-blown photo-accompanying blog posts. It will take me a few days to learn all the ins and outs of the camera, even though it is not that complicated, I still need a bit of learning time! Thank you, dear family!
My brother is doing well and enjoyed the holiday. Lots of visits from the various therapists is helping tremendously. His recovery continues slowly but consistently.
We received our first big snowstorm and the temperatures have plummeted to single digits. Beautiful, but frigid. I knew the winter weather could not stay away for too long. Photos soon!!!
This was a quick check-in post. Hope all is well with absolutely everyone. Blessed be!
