A New Dawn...


For some reason, the day after Christmas gives me a huge sense of relief. Having been in retail for so many years, if you didn't earn a stockpile the few weeks before the blessed event, you were doomed for the next few months of Winter, at least in the North where the howling winds, sleeting rains and piles of snow dictate your every whim.

But there's a sense of calm in the air at this time, as we await the New Year, hoping that there will be change in the winds. We want it, we need it, as with each of us, we wish to alter things in ourselves that didn't quite pan out in the previous year...no what I mean?

But we have the chance for a 50 degree weather flip today, before the crap moves back in, so I will meander up to Sisters' to see what this sale is all about. Trusty steed, cleared of ice, belly filled with gas (the truck), I conquer the cabin fever to pave my way to dreamland...Sister's Garden. I'm sure the little house fairies have been hard at play to all of our delight.

But just in case you don't hear from me for a while, I am gingerly awaiting the ice on the North side of my house to come barreling down full force off my metal roof, onto my cable wire, which is directly in it's path. So if I post pictures of Sisters' this afternoon, you'll know all is well at the Pink Chateau...but expect the worse...LOL

Hope y'all had a fabulous Christmas!!! With lots of good cheer!

Better be towing a boat behind the faithful steed. When this stuff melts and the rain starts, you may need it;)

Hope your Christmas was peaceful. Let's see what the new year brings us.

Just came visiting by way of the Comedy Goddess -- I love the pink house. No new pictures, though -- hope things are okay out there.

I came here through High Desert Diva, I just love how one fabulous blog leads to another. Your insights really struck a chord in me. I hope you are okay out there!

Ok, I chickened out and didn't make it down to Sisters today for the sale. Not that I NEED to buy anything but the inspiration is always a bit of medicine for the soul, ya know? So far, little slippery outside here in Mt Vernon so you may have alittle more time- OR they could be WRONG AGAIN and we'll scrape by.

I'll check in on Tuesday.
