Happy New Year

I guess its the thing to do at the end of one year to recap and then to think of what is to come! We can think of it and we can plan...but the outcome is anybody's guess!

As far as years go 2010 was pretty tame--I was happy that I found a window of opportunity to take a road trip the end of May...that was the highlight of the past year for me--I made a solo trip from SC to Arizona then up to Utah and Colorado, and then back to SC again a little over 5,000 miles! 

Of course nothing stays the same...We lost 2 family pets in 2010 Spanky in March and DixieDog in Dec, a somber thought that reminds me that we are all sailing our ship to an eventual last sunset--the end of our time on the Planet over the ~rainbow bridge~.  I would say the year started on a better note than it ended...But with each challenge comes a solution to a problem..and that is where my expectations are headed now to solutions, endings, and new beginnings.

I hope all of you have had a good year and when you think back there are many reasons to smile--and many reasons to carry on with the unfinished business of life at hand and stretched out in front of us like a highway, filled with wonderful adventures just waiting for us to enjoy!

Here we will be cooking the traditional southern New Yrs meal of Collard Greens & Black Eyed Peas, & Cornbread but without the pork--hopefully it will still bring us good fortune in the coming year!
2011 the year of the Rabbit--
Happy New Year!!!!


  1. Happy New Year to you too, Dixxe. Hope you get to go on more trips in 2011. I love your photography.

  2. Happy New Year! Yummy black-eyed peas!!!

  3. Happy New Year Dixxie! I hope the new year holds some more grand adventures.

    Ah yes, we are all sailing our ship into towards that last sunset ... but D will be waiting for me just over that rainbow bridge so ... there is something to look forward to even in that.

    But, like you say, there are many more adventures in the meantime. Always like the surprise of how they open up!

    Enjoy your Black Eyed Peas and Collards and Cornbread.

    TTFN ...

  4. A very Happy New Year to you Dixxe, and may you have many more trips in the future.
