Merry Christmas and Blogiversary

Hello everyone,
Merry Christmas to all.
Today is my Blogiversary. 
I have been blogging since
December 25, 2009. 
I started blogging on a whim, and I have loved blogging over the years.
I have learned so much over the past eight years. 
Friendship is the most rewarding part of blogging.
Journaling my daily experiences for my family and friends is a
great way to record my journey in retirement.
My photography has improved, but I still have 
a lot to learn about the photo editing process. 
I wanted to share a little Christmas cheer from my garden.
I hung my red teapot on a shepherd hook in the middle of 
the flower bed. Fresh fir from the Christmas tree is a
perfect bed for my glass mercury bird.
A festive red printed ribbon adorns the hook.

I will start another year of blogging with an
open mind and an open heart to new
creative ideas. This past year I have struggled with finding
time to blog, because of my husband's illness. During
July, he had emergency pacemaker surgery
, and I had cataract surgery on both eyes. I have slowed 
down and I just feel like taking life easier. No pressure
to do extra lifting, cooking, or spending money on 
decor for our home. I love setting a Tea scape once a month
for my Tea Time calendar, and maybe a trip I take
is fun to blog about. 2018 is going to be busy
with family activities. Hopefully, we will
stay healthy for a minute. Come back to see my New Year's Eve Post.
Merry Christmas and see you soon.
