Happy New Year!

Just checking in for a bit, hoping this finds you all well and happy! I'm so thankful and grateful for your friendship and care. Wishing you a lovely New Year's Eve, spent with all your dear ones, saying goodbye to 2009 and welcoming in 2010. Wishes for robust health, peace of mind and happy and contented hearts for all of you.

Still weak as a kitten over here, still on the road to recovery. I get blue sometimes but then I remember how far I've come from those overwhelming days of recent past. So all is good, it will just take a bit more time.

And ... good grief, I'm a slow learner ... I only just realized that I could visit your blogs on my iPhone! Hurray hurrah! I've enjoyed catching up a wee bit with all of your goings on and holiday-ifying.

I also discovered some game app's for my phone ... I know, I'm so very behind in this techno world ... these were life savers for me, keeping my mind off of myself during the darkest days and sleepless nights. Do you have any fave's?

Hey! Do you watch PBS? They had some wonderful shows on recently ... American Masters on Louisa May Alcott, Independent Lens about Origami artists, the wonderful dancer/choreographer/citizen of the world, Bill T. Jones on Bill Moyers Journal (I'm heartbroken that he's going off the air!). And of course, the repeat of "Cranford", can't get enough of English period dramas.

Oh! I read Coraline over the weekend - good gosh, I don't know how kids read that book?! It scared the bejeezus out of me and I'm old as dirt!!! shiver shiver shake. Now I'm reading his "The Graveyard Book" - there was an excerpt in my issue of "Coraline" and it looked really good. I'm enjoying it very much so far.

The husband was sent on an errand of mercy the other day - his mission was to pick me up the December issue of Marie Claire Idees. Success! Someday I hope to locate a copy before the Christmas holiday - is that possible??? Worth the wait though, beautiful as always! (But is it me? There is always this off-gassing stinkiness to the magazine. p-u-zah! Please dear MCI, please cease with the oh so smelly chemicals!)

Goodness me, sorry to have bent you ear so much, I guess I really needed to blather on huh?!

Have a fun New Year's Eve and much joy in 2010!


  1. Sally, I Love that postcard! I envy you your iphone. That would be so neat to visit blogs even when you're away from home! Lindsey was a sweatheart and gave me a subscription to Marie Claire Idees. We can't find it around here. I am so sorry to hear you are not all well yet. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and I am sending you wishes for a healthy, happy and peaceful New Year! Twyla

  2. I tape every episode of American Masters - I love that show! In fact, I started the Louise May Alcott one but haven't watched it yet...

    And Beanie HATED the Coraline book-- too scary! But she is trying to read the Graveyard book. I just finished The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and it was a page turner. And I usually don't read murder mysteries...

    Glad you are on the mend and beginning to feel better. Hope you and your family have a happy and crafty new year!!

  3. Happy New Year, Sally! Glad to hear that you are still on the mend... which will hopefully progress more quickly each day. I do watch PBS, but haven't caught American Masters yet - I need to go look up when it's on next now, I'm sure I'd love it.


  4. Argh! I can't believed I missed the louisa Alcott PBS show. When was it on? ANyway, Here's to you feeling better and a very happy new year!
