Hard to believe another year has arrived! We rang in the New Year up at the cottage by watching the "bridge drop" at midnight in our little town. The bridge is over the Pine river which links Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan. The bridge is raised and lowered to let big boats glide between the two lakes. We have seen this bridge go up and down a million times but it seemed special watching it go down at midnight. But I can't tell you how cold it was at 19 degrees and the wind whipping off the lakes. All I can say is burrrr…….
I could have used a little fur muff to keep me warm like this sweet little girl is wearing in this vintage postcard.
The holidays were nice, getting together with friends and family. My blogging partner daughter Andrea was home for an extended visit, truly the best gift of all. We relaxed but became obsessed by watching the first two seasons of the PBS show Downton Abby. Can't wait for the new season to begin, a wonderful show!!
In the next few days the tree and holiday decorations will come down. It is always a little sad when they come down but then we can begin the count down to spring and flowers…
Looking forward to the New Year!
