It’s been a year of changes and challenges. Not too much was left unchanged, and cancelling plans was what we certainly did more of.
December was no different there and brought no traditional festivities. Instead, there were lots of cookies, more walks and more connecting over the distance.
We’re all hopeful for the new year and the new hope it brings – and the vaccine. I’m counting down the days!
May it be a good year for all of us, full of good health and good news only.
It’s been a quiet autumn, with lots of staying home and going on walks. We had lots of warm days that allowed for time outside, and there even was coffee and cake.
It’s cold outside by now, and winter is here with snow and fog. Christmas is just around the corner, and a different Christmas for sure this time.
I hope this entry finds all of you in good health and spirits – and ready for a new year that will hopefully be a lot easier for all of us!
It’s been almost one year since I last shared glimpses. While the world around feels like it changes every day – and the world as we knew it has disappeared for good – life still goes on all around.
So, to stay connected, I though I’d start with a collage of the last year!
From Prague to the Danube loop, from skiing to the Cirque du Soleil, and of course Alpacas and Llamas – on into early 2020.
Prague was wonderful, and we hope to return one day. Of course, now all of our travel plans are paused, but one day…..
A good friend is on a mission. Chris is a teacher – teaching English as a second language – and spent the summer of 2016 in El Salvador. He met Joaquin there – and he is now working to support San Tecla during these hard times. I’m happy to share his post here.
That’s me in the image above. It was taken in 2016 when I spent the summer teaching English as a volunteer at a public school for girls in El …
Update: A Change of Mission
July brought record summer heat and thunder storms, sunshine and rain, a weekend getaway to a wonderful street art event, flowers and, as was to be expected, lots of work tobe done in between all that. But the vacation season is ahead!
June passed by in what seemed a minute – with record setting temperatures and sunshine, events and iced coffee, greenery and all that life brings.
My favorite were the tiny clay figurines in the upper left. We found them at a gardening show and just had to get them. And then there were a few days off!
It’s been almost a year since I last shared something here – time races by so fast.
I’d love to get back here more often, so I’ll start by sharing a few of last year’s photographs.
Hope to be around more!
A bit late – but here’s a glance back on June
It’s been the first summery weeks – and full of events, from the World Cup to the Grazathlon. And there was ice cream!
May brought more summery temperatures and events – from medieval castles to American diners, from living history to lavender days. On into summer!
