Bidding Adieu to 2009!

The headlines for next (week’s) year’s Blog posts have been formulating in my head already… “Getting back into the swing of things, Snap Out of It!, Working Girl, Oh, my aching muscles, Ouch 9 to 5 is hard work, Woe is Me, Crack That Whip, What do you mean where’s the money to pay the bills"…

I’ll be hard at it Monday morning, I promise…but until then it has been a house full of family and friends, skiing, eating, movie watching and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. Tonight Daddy-O and Kristen want to ski in Alyeska's Torchlight Parade to bid farewell to 2009. Everyone else will be watching them from our deck, sitting by the fire pit, snaking down the mountain like little red fire flies. Life is good and the Hot Butter Rum Batter we whipped up has been delicious (too delicious, my head hurts...), Happy New Year to everyone!


Me, Gus and Daddy-O
Gus, Katie and Kristen on the Mountain

Roasting dinner, I mean marshmallows

I have to tell you, my husband is soooo jealous of where you guys are. He is a big snow boarder but never gets to go enough. He is leaving soon to cover the Olympics in Vancouver and hoping for a little slope time at Whistler.
Happy New Year to all of you. Monday morning is calling for me as well. I cleaned my studio today getting ready.

Happy New Years to you & yours. I'm already looking to your blog for much-needed 2010 creative motivation! Way to plan ahead on those (awesome) blog post titles~

Eat a marshmallow for me - extra crispy, please!

Hi Tracey! Derek says Whistler ROCKS! They have the runs AND the night life. I think he would like Alyeska too though -a lot of people who visit here for the first time can't believe the beauty and difficulty of the terrain. Not too much fun for beginners but then the breath taking alpenglow can make up for it :o) you are a very good girl to get a jump on the studio cleaning!

I'll try and not let you down Julia! I did want to mention that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family on the loss of your sweet chickens -we were so sad to read about your family's loss. What a tragic incident :o(( Thanks for reading and leaving a comment.

Though I'm already having a bit of anxiety on jumping back into full production mode... I'll need to find something really fun to make and just fire the welder up -NO FEAR, right?! Time off can sort of be like writers block for me.


I'm with you Meredith! thanks and Happy New Year to you and your family.
