This is more of a mysterious New Year‘s memory.On December 31, 2016 I went walking as I so often do and everything was as it should be. The very next morning, nice and early January 1, 2017 I saw something that caught my eye. It’s in the tree branches to Bo’s right. Look closely.
*** a wine glass was resting purposefully in the bare branches of a tree right at eye level. It brought to mind a dozen questions! I left it where I found it. Day after day I walked passed it for nearly a year. It became a part of things. Until one day someone came along and moved it. It surprised me how much I missed it being in the cedar tree.
An empty glass waiting to be filled with anything. Like a new year, empty and waiting to be filled with anything.It was that spring that I first started writing here on WordPress…
To the questions –
If you could celebrate the New Year anywhere. where would it be?
sky and water…
…right here is good…
What is your favorite snack food for New Years?
although I like lots of different foods, like cheese and kettle chips and fruit and guacamole and salsa…really really I do. But, I just can’t resist the chance to say…Cookies! You didn’t see that coming did you… world’s most perfect food.
Bo, however, likes toast! He can hear a toaster pop in the next county over.He’s very well mannered though when he waits for his share…
Have you ever kept a New Year’s resolution? If so, what was it?
Well, this morning I opened my sock drawer and as I looked at the options it came to me clear as day…life is short…wear your best socks now. Don’t save them. You’re worth good socks, the kind that hug your feet.Unless you’re going to play in the mud with Dobby. Keep one pair of old socks on hand for messy doggy days.
So, I think I’ve just made a resolution. I’ll let you know next year how it all turns out.
I think I’ll ask Jack to teach me some new yoga poses too…stretch both the body and the soul..
What do you want to do with your blog this year?
Intrigue! Mystery! High Speed Adventure!
Perhaps I’ll tell you about my book idea. I already have a title. It will be called – The Dog Eats Half My Food. I can’t decide if it will be a memoir or a diet book. Probably, both. It will be riveting...and slimming…
And hopefully some quiet and thoughtful reflection…
Do you prefer a big party or a small gathering to celebrate?
Small, definitely small. Get two sofas and have them face each other. Push them together until there isn’t any floor between them. Add fluffy pillows and blankets. Now then, you’ve built a sofa fort and you’re all set!
Who is next to answer the ‘same’ questions?
I invite anyone and everyone to wade right in and give it a go!
Thank you so kindly to all of you for being such a beautiful part of my days.I’m very grateful for You!
