Long Night Moon, Snow Shoes, and Thank Yous

 The last full moon of the year or the long night moon was Friday night.  The light from the moon and the blanket of snow made it luminous out.  We headed out to the field with Puppy Weston to go snow shoeing.

Puppy Weston, the Moon and Field -
like the "luster of midday"

Taken without a flash at about 8:00 p.m. -
it looked like the moon itself

Tracking neighbors who wear
ice grippers

At the side of the field near the woods

Part of the weekend was spent writing thank you notes.

A note was written for this lovely  wooden pen.
A gift from a friend and made by a local crafts person.

I like to choose a different thank you note for each person.  Some are kept with my pens in an old writing box - a most treasured college graduation gift.

And so on to the New Year.  It will be a great year! We have already started a trip around the world - food wise.

  • A friend had folks over last night to welcome in the New Year with a Chinese food potluck.  Everyone ordered up food and brought it to share.

  • Then today another friend had folks over - early - for his annual soupe a l' oignon, the traditional cure for over imbibing

A Happy New Year to All.

P.S.  Meanwhile, paws stay off!  Someone, who shall remain nameless,  prepublished this entry in draft form a few days ago and then locked my computer.
