The end to 2011 is just a bit over an hour away PST ! We are the last time zone to change so we are the last of Canada to ring in the New Year 2012 ! Guess it doesn't really matter as it will happen sooner or later regardless . As I sit here waiting for the ball to drop in Time Square ( even if it is time delayed for our time zone ! LOL ! ) , I sit by myself as DH and the dogs have already headed off to bed ! Definitely not like life was even 30 years ago for us ! Life has been a whirlwind this past few months and doesn't seem to be slowing down any . Maybe life always was busy but is just more noticeable the older we get !
This year has been one of smiles , one of tears , one of good memories and one of sad memories . We have met new people , reconnected with a few friends from days-gone-by and said good bye to friends that have passed away . We were able to do a bit of traveling and a lot of camping in the Taj ! Had one of the worst winters we have ever experienced in the 28 years of living in Northern B.C. ...... and survived to tell about it ! Just kidding but sure are hoping that this winter doesn't last as long as the Winter of 2010-11 was !!! And definitely not as much snow as we saw or rain we had in the Summer of 2011 !
2011 found me still creating my cards and playing with my Copics but I am not quite as obsessed as I was . Don't get me wrong , I still love to create them and play with my Copics but I am taking longer to create one card by putting in more detail as you can see by the last few cards I have done ! I have also picked up my crochet hook which I hadn't touched in years ! Seems that all those scarves I crocheted before Christmas ended up in Christmas parcels and didn't end up for sale like I had planned ! They were a big hit ! My biggest challenge for 2012 is trying to figure out how to fit all my hobbies in with the rest of my day and accomplish all those other things like laundry , cooking , cleaning and shopping in there too ! LOL ! Thank heavens crochet hooks travel in the RV without taking up too much space !!! LOL !
I am not sure what 2012 holds for DH & I but January is already full on the calender ! We are already talking about a trip in the RV come July and may just extend that holiday longer then the normal 2 weeks ! We will see how THAT plays out ! LOL !
Take care dear friends and family and may 2012 have all your dreams come true ! Health and happiness to everybody !
Until next year ( which is 45 minutes away ! ) Happy creating ! Hug those you love just a little tighter tonight as there is no guarantee what tomorrow may bring !
