Happy New Year!

To all of you who have been reading my blog during 2014 and enriched my posts with your comments, here's wishing you a very Happy New Year!

Let me be selfish for a change (? am I not always?) and just consider what a good year 2014 has been for me altogether. If this was anything to go by, 2015 will be just as good, although different - with new things to learn, new people to meet, new books to read, new posts to write, new places to see and new songs to sing. I will hold on to the good "old" things and embrace the good new things that undoubtedly will come into my life over the next 12 months.

And I wish the same to you.

Christmas Eve

Some pictures, taking during the past few days from - you guessed it - my kitchen window:

It has become a bit warmer again, just above freezing point today. Some of the snow that was there yesterday is already gone, but I guess there is more to come soon.

      A bit warmer here now, slightly above freezing point, and much of the snow already gone.

    1. Adam does not wish to appear on this blog, I'm afraid. All photos I have of him are strictly private. (Not THAT private.)

  6. It snowed in parts of the UK on 27th as well - some of it is still lying on the ground in our garden but little anywhere else.
    A Happy New Year to you and may it bring lots of positive things.

  7. Happy New Year!
    Love your snow! I know I must have asked you this before but I can't remember...do you ever make a snowman? I would!
    Loved your outfit from Christmas Eve! Now, you will have to show us what you wore today for New Year's Eve! Will you go out dancing? Hope you are having fun as I type this, since it is past midnight in Germany, I am thinking!

    1. Happy New Year to you, too, dear Kay!
      We didn't go dancing like last year, but had a family party instead, this time at my sister's place. It was lovely but sadly there was so much fog we heard the fireworks more than we saw them!
      I was wearing the cat/kangaroo/cheetah dress, not with jeans underneath but with nice black tights.
      No snowman-building for me, I'm afraid... I like looking at the snow from my kitchen window, but I'm not to keen on getting too close to it :-)
