Good Bye 2011.....

GOOD-BYE 2011....your times run out....I stand beside these time worn hands...as the last hours fall like sand....I shed no tear to see you go...no ol lang sine will I sing tonight....your hold on us is all but shadows in our sight...so hurry up...mount your star....2012 is not so far....at midnight when the clock strikes last....A BRAND NEW YEAR ....we'll toast to her with smiles and hugs....a kiss or two ....at long last....

We hope 2012 will be a BLAST....

I know ....my poem is a "CHEESY" indulgence but I have given myself permission to take risks....indulge myself a little...so the following post is really just a mix of things I'm thinking about this afternoon....

Like moving into our house a year ago...

Getting our "Cabin in the Attic organized"....

Finding collections we hadn't seen for some time...

Seeing the Anniversary of 9-11....the death of Bin Laden....the beginning of our troops coming home.... 

All the storms ...earthquakes....tornadoes....etc....we seemed to survive ....with  the Lords help...

Dinner's in our new home....

And the knowing place deep in our heart's .....of who we have to thank for  the celebration tonight when a BRAND NEW YEAR....is finally here........hugs everyone....Karena

  2. Hello karena--thank you for stopping by my blogsite and leaving that lovely comment! It means so much to me when another artist tells me that I'm doing good work.
    Love the photos of the goodies in your home--gorgeous. Best yet, your "grand dog" photo--I adore my 4-footed pals as well!
    Best, Lisa (the Frenchman's wife).
