Happy New Year!

I really liked this idea
despite the fact it
was made for this year.
I think one could apply it
in 2014, don't you?

A Mother's Love

My son was sworn in today.
A very proud moment to witness.

And then the bittersweet moment
when I had to say good-bye
to him.
On their way to bootcamp now.

Quiet Moments

My son will leave

for military training tomorrow
so today
we had time 

to spend a few hours
in each others company.
I'm very blessed.

Cosy Coupe Love

Wee man likes his gift
from Nana & Mr. Nana

While he was visiting me
I had found a used cosy coupe for
him to play in.
However, once he returned home
he didn't have a car, so
we bought a new one
and had it shipped to him and his Mum

My daughter had to build it for him
(with some help from friends)
wee man was surprised to find it
Christmas morning by the tree!

As it should be!

While visiting friends
in Boston
I learned of this
yummy stuff...

and was introduced to this
interesting book.

And I discovered that I love
brussel sprouts now!
Who knew?

Union Square Holiday Shopping

Holiday shopping
in Union Square

Union Square
craft booths

Union Square
New York City

Newly acquired art by
the artist kudu-Lah

To match this one
that was given me early in the week!

And after a lovely time in the city
of shopping and having a yummy dinner
we returned to our hotel
and settled in for the night…
it caught on fire!
Yes, truly it did
and we had to find new lodging
because our room was full of smoke
from the fire that began in
 the ground floor electrical room!
