New Year's is one of those times given to reflecting on what has happened in the recent past and what you hope and wish for in the future. I don't usually do resolutions but I like Christine Kane's suggestion of choosing a word to live by for the year. But I can't decide on just one word. When I went to Diane and Jerry's for Christmas, they had a sign saying, Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much. Maybe my words for the year should be Live, Love, Laugh.
This is one of my Christmas decorations this year. I don't know what the base object is called, but it's a traditional Swedish decoration that usually has apples on the top and possibly at the end of each arm. I wrapped it in a tinsel rope and then hung Norwegian pewter ornaments on it with red ribbons.
