Happy (Belated) New Year!

Yup, I'm still alive.  My original intent was to just take the week between Christmas and New Years off from blogging, but I accidentally added an extra 5 days. Sorry about that!

Anyway, I did spend plenty of time relaxing and reading.  Last week I read Fathers and Sons, Sleeping Arrangements, and My Life as a Furry, Red Monster.  Yes, that's Turgenev, chick lit, and an autobiography by a Muppeteer.  I'm very well-rounded. ;-)

Anyway, here's a quick recap of my break:

Our fireplace was pretty great even when it was broken...
But it was even better after we got it fixed!!!
I got to spend lots of time with these handsome guys.
Unfortunately, this little guy (Sery) passed away a couple of days after Christmas. He was getting up there in age (most rats only live 2-3 years, he was 2 years and 8 months) so it wasn't entirely unexpected, but I will still miss him very much.

As usual, we spent New Years Eve in Wildwood with some friends from college.  This was the view from our balcony.
So pretty. :-)

Oh, and Glen was interviewed about our dog Elvis on Coffee with a Canine, check it out!

I hope 2012 is treating everyone well so far!  How did you ring in the new year??


  1. you're back! Sweet! Happy to hear you had a nice relaxing break. Sorry about little Sery.

  2. Wow sounds like you had an awesome time during your break! Your tree is so pretty and that view from your balcony makes me want to be there!!

  3. I <3 Turgenev. Especially Fathers and Sons. Looks like you had a great holiday! Ours was pretty good, too, but we just stayed real close to home. :)

  4. Happy New Year, darling and your photos are beautiful. I love your fire place and I'm so sorry about your little guy. Kisses and hugs.
