I spent the last few days clearing things out, packing things up and making the little mouse house more livable for the winter months ahead. The tree is outside now to be filled with treats for the resident birds and squirrels.I'll put it in view of a window.
I had some help.

I hope Simon is asleep and will stay underground for a few weeks. It is supposed to be cold for days ahead. The last I saw of him was Christmas day.
Santa was so good to me and I am now enjoying some of my gifts. Christmas teas, gorgeous hand lotions and soaps, books, kitchen accessories, and some fun things to decorate the mouse house. One gift brought tears and I will cherish it for all Christmases ahead.

To help with all the extra calories consumed last week, we received a pair of snow-shoes each. I look forward to getting out on them.
Another year has flown by, and although it has been a hard one with many losses, I have appreciated your friendship all the way. I thank you for your thoughts and prayers; for your humour and your kindness. Oh my goodness, you all have a heart of gold.
I have enjoyed following along with your blogs to share in the good times, the surprises of life's journey and to be there for you, too, during the down times. You are all very loving and talented people.
As we carry on with life's gifts and burdens, I wish you all a love-filled, exciting new year.
"Happy New Year, everyone."
"Here's to your best year yet."
