... eleven ornaments made by my brother-in-law and his wife. Steve is a woodworker and has made several little wooden ornaments over the years and Nan does a lot of paper-cutting. AND Nan sent me an ATC with a paper-cut skater on it. She's joining our ATC circle. Yay!!
....ten horsey ornaments. I say "horsey" and not "horse" because one is actually a rocking reindeer, and that white one on the right.... made of clothespins...... that one used to be a unicorn, but has lost his little gold pipe cleaner horn. We began collecting these when one of our daughters was born. Somehow, rocking horses seemed so Christmas-y! We have all different kinds. Porcelain, wood, glass, cross-stitched. I love them all.
... this wonderful set of DVDs of the Richard Rohr, OFM and Russ Hudson presentation on the Enneagram.The term "enneagram" derives from two Greek words, ennea (nine) and grammos (something written or drawn).We will be using this in our Faith-Sharing group starting next week. I'm really looking forward to this.
...eight photos from our annual New Year's morning hike at Walden Ponds Wildlife Habitat. It was a sunny, cold morning. 15 degrees when we started the hike. Lots of Canada geese honking overhead. One little bunny. And so much natural beauty. We ended our hike at The Buff for lattes to warm us up and some great bacon and eggs!
