Happy 2020!

New Year's Day is every man's birthday.
~Charles Lamb

Preston celebrated his first birthday
recently. I have a twinge of regret that
this toy plays the birthday song.

Happy New Year!

Wishing you good surprises in 2020 :-)

We had a lovely New Year's Eve, with all the regular activities (fondue, good things jar, labyrinth, movie, ball drop). Looking forward to some lucky foods today. I would also like to make a vision board again.

As always, the fun is mixed with the serious...I've been looking on with horror at the photos coming from the Australian fires. Two that really struck me were the kids trying to keep away from the fires by staying on a boat in the middle of a lake, and a burnt koala. The koalas! *sigh* (Sorry I don't have links, but you can imagine.) If you're wondering where you can contribute, here are some possibilities:

New South Wales RURAL FIRE SERVICE donation page
Australian Red Cross
Animal Welfare
Salvation Army Australian disaster appeal

I think you should do that vision board...definitely a positive thing to start out a new year doing something you like to do!
