Frosty Farewell to 2014

Wislawa Szymborska


It's been and gone.
It's been, so it's gone.
In the same irreversible order,
for such is the rule of this foregone game.
A trite conclusion, not worth writing
if it weren't an unquestionable fact.
a fact for ever and ever,
for the whole cosmos, as it is and will be,
that something really was
until it was gone,
even the fact
that today you had a side of fries.

Holiday House Projects

Hanging a chandelier in a stairway can be challenging.

Railing finished going downstairs.

Old pink discarded chest of my mother's Mother refinished.

Christmas 2014

All the stockings were hung and the Gift Card Spin Game was set.

The house decorations were complete.

The Gift Card Spin (fun to watch Amelia's face)

With Todd's family staying home due to Influenza A, it was especially delightful to have Amelia there.

Oh look, it's a major award.
