Day 365/365

A cheery fire on a frigid evening after a frozen, yet beautiful, hike is a true blessing . . .
Thanks to two (2) fine young men, Matt and Paul, for hauling in more firewood . . .
And for being courteous and entertaining hiking companions.

A New "Word" for a New Year

As 2014 winds down most of us either choose a new year's resolution or a "word". I, myself, opt for a word for each coming year.
For 2013, my word was "organize" and I did everything I could to put it into action in every phase of my life possible. I sorted, mentally and physically, until I felt way more in control of my life.
For 2014, I opted for one word used two ways~ "deliberate". I spent this last year deliberately deliberating!!! This method of thinking everything through has brought me to a place of starting my own line of hand sewn designer baby clothes among other things.
As I look ahead to 2015, I have decided on "attraversiamo", an Italian word meaning "to cross over". For me this means to step out in faith/ stop holding back in fear of failure/getting hurt again. It's simply time to move on to a better life.

Rainy Christmas Eve on Our Homestead

I've heard this will turn to 3-5" of snow, but am busy watching news on shooting and riots in Berkeley, Missouri . . .
I am beginning to wonder if I should begin to till my garden and spread compost . . .
Are we going to get a winter?
