This day marks the time in history when I own my first very own pair of UGG sheepskin slipper boots.

I celebrated the new year with a little PBS viewing.
First, some fine music from Vienna,
followed by a little mystery from London.
I felt very MERRY indeed.
Happy New Year! :)

Something old - Something new
Two cards - Two friendships
The card in the frame with the three women is from my dear friend, Mary Jo. She gave this card to me in probably 1994. (Old) I have cherished it from the moment she gave it to me until this very day. She was a wonderful, delightful, most generous, and encouraging friend. Oh, and exciting. She was always so exciting, always ready for an adventure. Truth be known, I lived vicariously through her as she had such a free-spirit and I admired her bravery. I loved her with all my heart, and indeed, I still do. I miss having her still in my life.
The second card is a most cherished Christmas card sent to me this week (New) from my beloved Ai-chan, my friend that I met two and a half years ago. We had such fun romping around our adopted Japanese city, Numazu, as well as making trips on the slow train to Tokyo together. She is also back in the USA, but alas, too far away for impromptu bike rides to Cafe Day or Aoki super market, but we keep close through this amazing world of cyberspace.
Two cherished cards that represent two cherished friendships, one old, one new, one silver, the other gold.
The Girl Scouts have a little friendship song that they teach young girls. The lyrics are:
A circle's round, it has no end, that’s how long I want to be your friend.
Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold.

I walked down to Willa B's for lunch.
Hmmmm, Hot Tomato-Basil soup with tea.
I saw some Christmas decorations and even a Choo Choo Train ride for the kiddies.

Yarn! It would have to be yarn.
Yesterday it snowed and snowed and snowed. I'd say there was about ten inches. Luckily for me, I always have a stash of yarn about.
This is what happened.
And this ....
