Happy New Year 2013 dear friends. I hope that you got to spend some time with your family and friends over the holiday.
In the last 3 weeks we have only been home 4 days! I love my home. I love to be at home. I love to putter around my home. That's what I am doing today.
We arrived home last night after a 17 hour drive from Texas but I was anxious to get my house back to normal, so I've already got all the Christmas decorations down and boxed up, ready to go up in the attic until next year. Every year I try to weed out some of it and I managed to eleiminate one big plastic bin.
Whenever we are away, the first this I do the next morning is make a cup of tea, and stand outside on our deck just to look at the woods. This morning I was greeted by 3 deer chomping away on the azalea bushes. They looked up at me as if to say, "Oh you're home. Can we still finish our meal before we leave?"
The camellia bush was in full bloom too so I picked two of them also. They are such a lovely shade of dark pink.
I haven't had a chance to think about goals for this year yet. I have a few ideas about things I'd like to get done around the house. I'm not a New Years resolution person but I do like to make a few goals each year.
How about you? What plans do you have for the coming year?
