So long to 2007

What a year. It has been a year of extremes for us. Joyous events, frightening events and losses that we did not expect. A year that reminded us to be thankful, to be patient, to be flexible; to remember that family is our foundation and friends our support and when things get bad, have faith they will get better. And we've learned that being retired somehow means that you are busier than ever.

So goodbye to 2007. I think we've squeezed every drop out of you. And hello to 2008. What, I wonder, do you hold?


  1. Happy New Year to you and your family. I have really enjoyed reading your blog this year.Here's to a healthy and productive 2008

  2. Wishing you a new year full of joy and creativity. Thank you for sharing your creative process and artwork. Cheers

  3. Terry, I hope this year will be a happy one, and will be full of creativity.
    PS all my retired friends are busier than before :-)

  4. I do enjoy reading your blog. You write well and take such interesting photos.
    I look forward to 2008's delights from you.

    Dear Terry, I love your wonderful birds and your great photos. Do you have patterns for your birds, and do you sell them or ??? They are just adoreable. I love birds, and have a lot of scraps to use up, and these would be great. What are the legs and feet made of? Peace and many blessings and Happy New Year, Annie

  6. Terry,

    I have enjoyed your blog and read it with some regularity (translation-when time permits). I'm with Anne, your birds would make a great pattern. Much joy to you in 2008.

  7. Happy 2008! I absolutely adore your birds!


  8. Happy New Year to one of my best friends in the whole wide world.

  9. A great post and another wonderful bird: love the hat!
    Happy New Year to you!
