Happy 2019

 Happy New Year!  Sam's celebrating with pizza!  So cute!

Don't you love this mug my neighbor gave me?  Aw! 
 Here's our new stove. Sorry about the clobber on the side. It's messy on the counters after the holidays.  I must tidy it all up.  The stove is very basic, but it cooks (and bakes - I made a box mix of brownies).
 I'm excited about this knitting.  I am almost to the part where you put the sleeves on waste yarn and proceed around with the body.  The charted section was a little hard for me, but I think it's all good now. 
 Even though we joined the local rec center, I have only been there once.  I walked on the indoor track and it was fine, not a super bunch of fun, but fine.  It's freezing here today so walking outside is not appealing.  I jumped around to this for a while.

Shortly after that I switched to my favorite screen, the YouTube fire.  


How are you feeling about the new year?  I feel thankful.  I'm thankful for the bright sun outside, our sweet people, our house, healthy food, and so many other things.  I'm thankful for YOU because you're nice and take the time to read my words.  (BIG SMILE)

Happy New Year! onto 2019! I love the colors on your latest project. I am so glad I got to see that cup. I couldn't imagine what it looked like. I love that picture of that pizza. I love your stove too. I really like it.
I hope you have a wonderful day.

I, too, am thankful for so many things. A warm and cozy home, plenty of food in the pantry and freezer, running water, a hubby who is my perfect life partner in crime! Wishing you a happy and healthy 2019!

Happy New Year to you and yours, my friend. By Jingo, it's been a whole heap of busy-ness this week and it's just taken me three hours to clean up my kitchen after the family meal today, plus I took all the decs down and neatly filed them away until next time!!

ps I love your new cooker. Mine is black too so we could be twins!!

I love the perspective on that piece of pizza and the cuteness of the granddaughter.
I'm glad that you got a new stove and a new mug. Last year, I had so many mugs, that I was running out of space in my cupboard so I filled a box full and send it to the Salvation Army.

Your knitting looks so lovely and soft.
Wishing you a wonderful New Year.
Hugs, Julia

The new mug seems perfect for you!!
The new stove looks especially nice with red things near it. Red & black are my fav. winter colours ( and that's exactly what I'm wearing today).

Happy New Year to you!

Those yarn colors are delicious! What are you knitting?

I'm thankful with you, Pom Pom, for the year that was, for yesterday that was, for today. God loves us and gives us breath and a heartbeat every day -- I mean, I know he did it again today for whoever is reading this!-- And I'm glad to be here in the world with all of our fellow humans.

Onward into 2019!

Happy new stove to you and a very Happy New Year, too. I'm looking forward to meeting our new little grandson in April. Hoping to make some road trips to the Seattle area to spend some time with our "western" kids, too. Blessings to you and yours!

Happy New Year! Your knitting project is very pretty. The yarn looks so soft. Enjoy these early days of hibernation...uh, I mean January!

I'm glad you got your new stove. I still like black appliances. It's a classic look. Your sweater is coming along great. Happy New Year!

That pizza looks great! I love your new stove. Everything looks great with basic black. Could you do me a favor? Send a prayer up that my oldest gets approved for a much needed hip surgery. We'd appreciate it. Looking forward to 2019! :) Take care, Kit

It's hard to resist looking at your sweet blog posts! That is the softest looking yarn! I love it! I really want to learn to crochet or knit and that is kind of my New Year's resolution. You have the cutest grandchildren.

Henny Penny said...

Shoot! I meant to mention your new stove. I like it a lot! It looks a little like my stove, shinny black and simple...and I love it.

What a nice way to start the New Year...new stove...lovely knitting, happy home and a bit of holiday 'clobber'(love your words). Happy New Year my friend. Stay warm by the U-tube fireplace...not seen that before, fun!

Looks like Sam will enjoy that pizza! I am trying to walk a bit in the house. Your knitting is wonderful. Looks hard to me! Enjoy your new stove. Nancy

Hi, Pom. If you're interested and you have Amazon Prime, type in Ann Smith. She's a life-long ballerina who does a simple, elegant, gentle 'exercise' routine in a quiet, tall-ceilinged ballet room, with Chopin music as the background. I love it... although I'm still a slacker. But you might really enjoy it. Nothing is hard and nothing hurts :)

The sweater is just lovely!

.....and I am thankful for you, dear Pom Pom and the lovely visits to your place. You always make me smile. May your new year be a beautiful one♥
