These early New Year Days have unfolded contentedly, filled with time here in our home. We haven't ventured much beyond our own blue gates. We've not had the need or the desire to go far. I simply love days like these!
There's been a little gardening:
A creamy yellow Zinnia flower.
There's been some baking:
A fresh batch of oaty Anzac biscuits.
There's been much healthy eating:
Our Garden Salad with chicken and a creamy yoghurt dressing.
There's been a spot of sewing:
The beginnings of a new dress.
The much neater corner of my sewing table.
There's been a bit of knitting:
A new washcloth with a new pattern.
There's been plenty of reading and board games and music and cricket and fun.
Just two of the many books we are enjoying these holidays.
In amongst all these joys, there has been the annual packing away of the Christmas tree and lights and new calendars have replaced the old. This new year is off to a lovely start!
I hope your New Year Days are unfolding contentedly too.
