Sunny warm Christmas Day. Well, warm for Canada – about 5 C that day. Days of dozing in the afternoons, walks at the beach, and tons of wonderful leftover turkey meals.
New Year’s Eve, cold and crisp, about -4 C. Started the bonfire around 9 pm, started toasting vanilla bean and peppermint marshmallows around 11 pm, and had just enough glowing embers to see the year out at midnight. Awesome, fabulous way to celebrate New Year’s Eve. We told stories, sang Auld Lang Syne with new lyrics (because none of us could remember the old ones – our best rendition was just humming, we almost sounded like kazoos). and star gazed. Talked over plans and ambitions and dreams and hopes for 2015. I think we have a new family tradition in the making here.
Here’s hoping that 2015 brings you what you need and hope for. Happy New Year.
