My Mom's violets live on!
And what says New Year, New Life more than a bouquet of pussy willows?
I'd helped my friend, Cecilia, get her house decorated for our 4th Day celebration. I enjoyed exploring her cupboards and drawers. She owns a thousand beautiful candles, I swear. Anyway, she presented me with this little silver pitcher yesterday and a note that said, "A token of my affection and appreciation for all your help at Christmas time." It's a gift I'll treasure as much as the friendship of this dear friend.
Today I've turned down the thermostat and opened all my doors and windows hoping to get rid of all the bad germs and let fresh air into my little house! I'm ready to let the New Year begin!!
