I’d just like to pop in and say Happy New Year! It’s been a lovely winter break around here these last several days, even though I’ve been working quite a bit this week—more than in most years, actually. I’m glad to have the work, and yet still yearn for the downtime, especially while everyone is at home.
There has been lovely block play,
some reading of How to Train Your Dragon, and quite a bit of cozy “Avatar: The Last Airbender” viewing.
Ian tackled some home renovation projects, including fixing a gate and finishing the Hearth Project (which was started and abandoned half finished more than eight years ago). Here is the beautiful result:
Lucas has practiced on his new skateboard from uncle Jon.
And Asher has worn his new chaps and vest (a precious family heirloom of our friends, loaned to us while they fit) in a most creative way.
So, that’s pretty normal right, for the last days of a year: continuing on, finishing, fixing, solving, resting, mulling, embracing new challenges, learning new skills, reinventing old stuff to be new again?
Relax. Review. Renovate. Remember. Reinvent.
Well, it’s normal around here.
Wishing you all the best in the New Year!
