May you always be blessed with walls for the wind. A roof for the rain. A warm cup of tea by the fire. Laughter to cheer you. Those you love near you. And all that your heart might desire.
sending everyone happy new year wishes..my goal this year is to clean out my attic...my blogging may be few and far between ..if you could see the shape of my attic you would understand...its close to being a fire hazard !!!
