Ringing in the New Year


Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end. ~Seneca

I love this little fairy ring– it circled a white rose bouquet I made last December. I'm not up to my blogging best yet-- so I'm letting my archives do the visuals. This came from my first blog-- the one that got me ready for this one.

Hello Snow


Weather people said there would be no snow in La Grande, Oregon for Christmas.

As we began our ascent of Mt. Emily, wet snow hit the car window and soon became white and flaky. When we reached the top, Judy (my sister) and Roger (her husband) wondered if there would be snow on the ground at their home.

Snow-in-La-Grande-Ore Indeed there was snow, and this is what I awoke to on Monday morning. I grabbed the camera before I even got out of bed forLace-curtain a little lacy window fun and

A-foot-note a footnote to prove, I guess to myself, that I was there. What fun we had!

More to come . . .

I'm a little creaky getting back to the blog.

Wishing you, dear friends, the Happiest of Holidays with your family and friends!

About the Shots

I have a silver Honda CRV, and its frosty roof was my premier photo op, after our recent frost. I'm pretending here that I live in winter wonderland. I hope the snow lasts in Oregon, so I can shoot the real thing. Funny how this looks like the ocean. (I need a quote about the unity of all things.) Later!

Check out the blog on the 28th- I'll be back.
