What a gorgeous start to the New Year!  Morning sunshine, moderate temperatures, fresh air!  The Cascades are blanketed by a new layer of white snow from Friday night's storm.  "Traditionally" we usually take the dogs & head over to the beach on Whidbey Is.  But - last year we were helping friends put a roof on their barn!  Today - we've invited to Bellevue for our friends laid-back gathering with plenty of food to munch on!  Will take the "back-roads" home - since the "kids" are gone to Disneyland - can't stop by there!  

Courtney has been sending photos from her phone of Mason & Cassidy with incredible smiles enjoying Disneyland!  They had dinner overlooking the castle!  Would like to be there to enjoy seeing the kids enjoying the park, but know realistically that the crowds would not be my cup of tea!  

Here's wishing everyone in "blogland" an incredible New Year!  Full of opportunities, fun times, health & joy!


  1. Yay, it's been a whole year with a ROOF,and I still love my "new" barn! Happy New Year to everyone at the Homestead.

  2. Glad to hear that! Same to all of you on Haiku Farm!


Always Welcome~
