looking forward to 2013

Oh well, the holidays have come to an end and it's time to welcome 2013.
I hope you all had a wonderful time - however you spent the holidays.
I enjoyed a little time away - some rest and relaxation
and this week -
it's back to grind (so to speak)

We were very lucky to have Chicago-daughter and Nearby-apartment-daughter (along with her kitty)
home for Christmas.
While I enjoyed playing with a new camera lens,

Greg was looking forward to heading to Vermont (yikes) -

Where he got lots of use out of his new hat!
I was feeling a little guilty snapping photos while he worked - but then, do you see that smile?

I do believe he's enjoying himself...

it's a new year and the new years resolution thing - yeah, one bag of Hershey's kisses later, that hasn't happened yet.
So many improvements, so little time...
How about you? Have you made any resolutions you're determined to keep?

One thing I did accomplish - I finally managed to add a Google Friend Connect Follow button to my sidebar.
So - if you're following by RSS or email and prefer GFC, please feel free to make the switch.
If you're not currently following, I'd love to have you join me.
And - as always,

Thanks for dropping in!

  3. that is a great hat. i rather enjoy it. it would be a little warm to wear around these parts though. ha. ha!! ( :

  4. My husband has one of those hats too! Looks very snowy there. My boys keep hoping for snow, but we haven't had any so far.

  5. I'm determined to get a new camera lens... at some point... this year... I have to, cuz I want one so bad! LoL! I have no zoom ability right now

    Love the kitty shot & the hat is a hoot! =)

  6. ps i hit the gfc button & joined, but it didn't list me... i'm following, tho! =)

  7. Glad to see there was some snow in VT. Though we have some on the ground here in CO, the pack is way below normal. No resolutions here! I'm eating candy as I type this.

  8. The practical gifts are always among my favorite. I am glad you had a good holiday.

  9. Congrats on the new lens! The kitty is very cute! My husband would be thrilled with that chainsaw. Give him something to saw or burn and he is a happy guy haha.

  10. Love the cat and the hat! :) Glad you had a nice Christmas. I'm not making any resolutions, I'm setting goals. That works better for me. Is there a difference?

  11. Great shots with your new lens, I would say! All the best to you in 2013!
