And so we woke up to a new year
I cought glimpses of the first light


I started the year by taking life in my hands...literally.
I cut some old trousers that I meant to, forever.
The girls bought me a sewing kit and I put it to good use.
I then blanket stitched the bottom.
Last night we made the traditional St. Basil/New Year pie.

Yummy dough

Santa came and we found his presents under the Christmas tree
We then had our slice of cake. I got the nickel ;-)

And I put my best foot forward for 2014

This is my first  favorite room of 2014 via Pinterest

and this is what Santa brought me.
Happy and blessed, healthy and prosperous 2014
my friends
