New Year's Day at Ironwood

Would you believe I took my camera and didn't take one picture. Well that's what happened. Tsk. Tsk.

It was just so great to see Heather and Rupert, and Rupert's mum. Even the weather behaved well, and actually the roads weren't too bad. The wind was blowing and so there were a few places where snow was blowing over the road, but all in all, not too bad. The worst roads are the ones closest to home, especially the one that runs in front of this house.

The sun shone after the day began with snow showers, off the bay, as the saying goes. I just love the showers off the bay....... Dawn did the driving, and was cautious, which pleased her mother very much. You just never know when you are going to find ice. Some drivers, however, seem to throw safety into the backseat and drive like fools. They are the ones that you expect to see in the ditch, just around the curve.

We spent just a few minutes with the sheep, because it was really, really cold. My, I wish this freezing weather would ease up. I think it is going to be even colder tomorrow.

And this is my gift from Heather, Rupert and Dawn - A Ukulele!!!!!!!
And it has it own case!!!!
It was a marvelous surprise.
So my day was lovely, and I am thankful and blessed.
Thank you Dawn, Rae, Lindsay, Heather and Rupert.


  1. I have always wanted to learn how to play the ukulele! What a wonderful present.

    Happy new year - may 2014 be filled with happiness and music!

  2. Lovely to see you, too! We'll spend more time together in 2014, to be sure. How do you feel about driving with your granddaughter?....
