2011 wrap up

have not had anything interesting to post by way of photos, i had the entire week following Christmas off from work, and it pretty much entailed walking (tending to) sophie, packing up and organizing Christmas decorations (photo below), boxes are labeled and now put away.  the 2 trees are still up waiting for steve to have a chance to take them down.  am leaving poinsettas on the front porch and in the foyer just to brighten the place up.  have set aside a box for each of the boys for their ornaments, and plan to add again next year.  this was one big project that i really wanted to get done. the weather has been rather nice, a couple cold wet days, but overall plenty of sunshine.  looking forward to 2012 and what it entails-whether good or bad, but hoping and praying for LOTS of good, and strength in case of any bad.  am also thinking of signing up for a couple year long photo projects suggested by ali edwards.  really don't want to overwhelm myself in 2012-i believe that FOCUS will be my word for 2012. so many areas i can apply this to-we'll see.

today's saturday strolling- just me-needed a power walk so sophie stayed home with christopher (my sometimes son-actually the son of our pastor who hangs out with us).  this is an area on jim owens that was pretty much underwater during the floods of 2009.  i loved how the mist was rising above the grass in the distance-earlier this week after we'd had some rain this creek was really flowing-such a lovely sight AND i saw a heron who flew off before i could get a photo.
here's to wishing everyone a very happy, prosperous and richly blessed 2012
