So long 2010.....

2010 was mostly a good year for us -  We went on a vacation down south -  we hadn't done this for years - we really enjoyed it!  DH got an offer he couldn't refuse, and retired one year earlier than we had planned - a delightful surprise!
DH went to the UK to visit his family and do a real "train" oriented trip.  He had arranged for a line pass (this meant he could get right down on the track to take video)  and as he'd been wanting to do this for years, this was a very satisfying trip for him.
I went to the UK to do a knitting weekend in London.  I tried to resist, but resistance was futile - a very spontaneous thing for me!
With the Hubby Retired - we really got to enjoy the summer.   Barbecues on the deck, afternoons reading out there, enjoying our yard. 
With the DH home, we go walkies with Lackie and Daisy about 3 times a week - hikes more than walking.......at the Conservation areas that are close to us.
We still did our "annual" things - like going on the Segw…

The Aragog Trail....

If you read this blog, you know I'm a great fan of Harry Potter.  While on our walks, I make up silly stories.....one of them is that a particular part of one of the trails that we walk is actually "The Aragog Trail" because it is frankly a spooky part of the trail.  While this time of the year the leaves are gone and with the snow it's quite bright....but not on this part of the trail......

























Happy Christmas!

This is the photograph I used on our Christmas Cards this year.  I keep thinking Christmas Cards are redundant in this day of e-mail and facebook.....but there is nothing like opening a card and seeing a message from good friends.  So this year I decided to really make it a personal statement.  Our friends know that Daisy and Lackie are everything to us and it seemed like such a great idea to gussy them up and put them on our Christmas Card.  Thank you to Terry Stokes, Scorybrek Westies for bringing them to us, and for providing hair and makeup on the day, and to Renee for being such a fabulous photographer.

Spindrift Designer Box....

Remember this post.....the shades of Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift that I didn't have and just had to have LOL!!!

Well they are now organized with all of the other shades that I had already, per the new shade card (sort of) in two large Rubbermaid containers......

I don't have all of the Marls.......and just looking at these photos makes me want to organize them strictly by the shade card......so I'll do that next.
