A New Year, thank goodness

Wow, I kind of disappeared for a few months there, sorry about that.  2012 was not my best year, and leaving it behind and learning from it is just what I plan to do.  2013 is shaping up to be OK so far.  If the snow would start to melt again it would be even better.  It was melting nicely and my garden planning and yard improvements were well under way and into the planning stages, until......the dump of the ole white stuff.  I am about done.  Valentines Day came and went and I began dreaming of slightly warmer weather and the possibility of green grass.
(as requested by my February birthday daughter, vanilla cupcakes with chocolate icing and pink chocolate heart cutouts)

(my favourite breakfast and my families newest favourite cookie,  the deepdish chocolate chip cookie, the pic doesn`t do it justice, but one is the equivalent of 2-3 of my normal size cookies :-) so yummmmmy good )
Well, that was just what it was, a dream.  My plans for the yard and garden have not been tossed out just yet, but put on hold for the time being.  We shovel off the deck every snowfall, and the remainder melts quickly as the sun struggles to shine.  Our solar panels are craving the sunshine just as much as I am.  I am eager to pull out the deck furniture but alas that is on hold for now as well. 
This is just the beginning of a return to my blog for me and I will do my darnedest to return weekly and keep this up to date.  Time flies whether we are having fun or not, so I will put on a happy face and try my bestest to have fun again.
Peace out for now.
