This new year finds me in Switzerland and here, on January 4yh, still waiting for the grandson to be born. He is taking his time. The youngest grandson asked his mother, “Is that baby going to burst through your human parts?” I think the labor has started but it keeps stalling. So we’ve had Christmas, New Year’s Eve and the grandsons have been happily playing with their new toys.
The view from the back of my son’s home. It would look like a Christmas card if there were only some snow. It has been raining lightly here today and higher on the mountains you can see a dusting of snow. Maurice says there is a French saying that goes: If you are in the sun on your balcony at Christmas, you will be in front of your Chimney at Easter. That may prove to be true this year.
So I wish for all of you a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Make it a good year. I would like a lot more travel this year myself. I was trying to think of the highlights of 2011 and for me it all involved travel: our trip to Simi in Greece, our road trip through Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, and then my trip to England. It was all great. Happy New Year!
