Happy New Year!

Duke

Happy New Year!
It's my favorite time of year--fresh year, clean slate, and an endless supply of new possibilities and opportunities.

I did my most favorite thing this morning--got up, snuggled under a blanket, and watched the Rose Parade.
I adore the parade.
Some day I'll see it live.

I'm hoping this year brings me a new job, and a better income so I'm not struggling so much.
One with a brighter environment in which to thrive--maybe coworkers that respect me and vice versa.
Wow, what a concept.
But I know it's out there just waiting for me.
Like a good man....but I'll tackle one goal at a time (grin).

Above is an amazing photo of Duke I somehow captured on a misty morning several months ago. I surprised Duke's owners with the image matted and framed for a Christmas present.
It turned out beautifully.
I must have spent two hours going through mat board colors until it felt just right. I'm glad the graphics place was patient with me.

I hope your year is starting out in a favorable way.
Let's try to motivate one another to finish all those PIGS
(as Amy calls them).

That's Projects In Grocery Sacks, haha.
I have way too many of those!

Happy new year, Woof Nanny! I have been reading your blog for quite a while but haven't commented yet. Of course, I just HAD to comment on this adorable picture you captured of Duke. As a pet (and child) photographer, i must say, you really did a great job of capturing his spirit! I've never met this little cutie but already feel like I know his personality.

Tee hee don't we all - have too many PIGS! (I'd like to be down to the 10 on my feet - but that will NEVER happen.)

Belated Happy New Year wishes! Do they still count?

Next year you must celebrate the Eve on Catalina - if money/time permits, you must think about it!
