How have you been?
Beautiful and significant moments around Christmas time, and even the day before New Years Eve when all my adult “children” with their families to look at my latest paintings. I lured them with 7-layer dip and appelflappen (the New Years customary apple doughnut) to take the 2 hr. trip to our house.
Now, am excited to get back into Seasons!
TO ALL OF YOU, HAPPY SEASONS for the NEW YEAR 2018. That it may be a fruitful year of all your endeavors, a meaningful year for relationships, and your pantries overflowing with good food!
Up to a new year, full of fun and interest around the globe!
Still in a holiday mood! Christmas came very early this year with a present of a blogger sending a box of delicious persimmons. I added a few of them here, while I was decorating my living room windows.
What is so interesting is that this is only the second time I had persimmons. The first time was also a gift! From a single mom who I suspected had loads of creativity, so I gave her the first brushes, paint and canvas. I was right – her first painting looked like she had been painting for years! Then she confided that her dad was an artist in San Francisco!
A New Year – a new adventure. We had this adventure in 2014 while in 1849
many around the globe came here on an adventure panning gold in
the rivers, rocks, anywhere possible around the main artery of gold,
which was highway 49 – what caught my eye, glistening white rocks
in the riverbed here (gold???) on that same highway
with a magnificent view around Coulter.
The nights have been around zero outside, but no snow yet!
On New Years Eve most Dutch people are munching on apple doughnuts /fritters and oliebollen (same batter, but the last with a round shape filled with raisins), a Dutch tradition for this time of year.
