and it begins . . .2010

We are beginning this year with promises of puddles and a good gust of wind.

As long as it's warrants a red warning on the weather channel . . .

I can't help but feel a little bit of excitement.

My Portzelky Frying Pot is already in the shop.

My bag of flour, my carton of eggs, my measuring cup of milk, the new bag of raisins, yeast and container of oil are on standby.

We'll begin the year with a party.

My brothers and their families are coming . . .

and I can't think of a better way to begin the new year.

As far as blogging goes. . . .

Thank you for coming along with me on this journey of what I'm learning.

Sometimes this blog is my journal . . .

and sometimes it's just random silliness . . .

but everyday it is who I am . ..

and the fact that you are willing to lend me your ear . .

makes me feel blessed indeed.

Happy New Year to you and yours.

See you on Monday!

All for now . ..

  5. How close does the family connection need to stop by and sample fresh portzelky at the shop? Just wondering.

    I'll lend you may ear any day...your words are always like music and your blog always a great place to stay awhile!

    Happy New Year.

  6. Have a great time, Lovella! I'll have to pop over to MGCC to have a look at that recipe.
    I enjoyed all your Christmas-time posts, even if I couldn't comment on each. I wish you a wonderful 2010 as we wait for the big wind that's headed our way too. I wonder who it will hit first!?

  7. Love the exchanges with you Lovella. Hope to keep them up in the coming year. Blessings

  8. Wishing you and yours a Happy New year too ... and I'll continue to give you my ear ... or my eyes to read. Enjoy your party in the shop.

  9. Your blog is such a warm and friendly place to stop by at each day.
    Thank you so much for sharing glimpses of your world with all of us.
    Happy New Year!!

  10. Lovella...I do believe that we are all along for the 'long haul' in this journalling and sometimes "silliness" that you speak of...grin! Love the boots in the puddle! Great photography! Happy New Year! word verification is 'sunmedia'....could it be? grin

  11. Happy New Year to you! Your blog posts is one of the blessings that I find myself looking forward to in this New Year! I think of it as receiving one of my favorite new magazines, only on a more daily basis.

  12. I echo the last Judy's comments. What cheerfulness to read, as I start off the day with a cup of tea. Thank you for sharing your insights with so many others! May 2010 bring you health, wealth, and happiness. Dairymary

  13. I've just returned from a little trip, so I'm a bit late, but I wanted to wish you and yours a Happy, healthy, and blessed New Year!

    Kindest regards.
