I Wish You A Brave New Year






"I wish you a hopeful Christmas
I wish you a brave New Year
All anguish pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear
They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be peace on Earth
Hallelujah Noel be it Heaven or Hell
The Christmas we get we deserve"


 Fresh snow is the prettiest sight! Our camp is in the "winter wonderland" area of New York, and  snow lovers flock to the area to snowmobile, ski, snowboard and snowshoe. If you are a business owner, you pray for lots of snow and the tourists will come!  The photos above were taken at the hardware store near my camp of their winter windows. The ski mountain is open, and I love seeing the signs for the trails. We hike the mountain in the summer, and it's one of our favorite hikes with a view. 

I would rather be in Key West in February LOL, but this year we booked a winter vacation to enjoy some winter activities.   

Happy Almost New Year!

    1. Hi Lea! I had to pull out my North Face jacket with the furry hood (keeps me as warm as an oven). Wishing you many blessings in the New year.

  4. Love the post and that ELP song. The best thing is embracing what we've got, and winter can be exhilarating, given the right clothes and company. Happy New Year, Deb.

    1. The hardware is one of a kind and this year they have several selfie stations where they had props set up during the holiday parade and you could take photos. We are going to wait until Joe retires in June to go to Key West. Happy New Year Kitty!

    2. That should say hardware store, not hardware.

  10. Happy New Year, Debbie! Good friends have a place in Vail and they are suffering from lack of snow so hopefully your winter vacation is not there! Our daughter is in Jackson Hole and the snow there is better but still not great. Love the hardware store windows!!

  11. Haha - me too! We have our cabin at Sundance and once we bought Cabo we ran away there right after Christmas every year. We tore that down to rebuild and of course it is taking longer than we expected so we have been at the cabin between Christmas and New Year's for the last two years. It is fun, but give me sun and surf!
