I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

Happy New Year 2009!!!

Another year over...how they are flying by...and what a year!!! Never in my wildest dreams would've I imagined what a lovely place the land of Blog is...and meeting so many wonderful, kind, inspiring and generous people out there...It is an absolute delight!!! I wish you all peace, love, joy, contentment, good health, safety ...and of course Happy Blogging...together with lots of new stitching projects...and good reading for the coming year 2009...

Of course I couldn't leave without a little something to ponder over..."Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense"~Ralph Waldo Emmerson~
HAPPY NEW YEAR...bring it on!!!

a good yarn said...

Happy New Year Dzintra! I think this will be a challenging one for so many people. Let's hope we have the resilience and determination to make it a good one.

That is a lovely sentiment in your blog. Ralph Waldo Emerson was such an eloquent writer. You're right though, the years seem to be passing all too quickly.

I look forward to seeing this year's projects and reading your terrific blogs.

Cheers...Ann :)

Happy New Year Dzintra - thanks for visiting my blog. I recognize Lurline & Julia's names in your other comments. I love that we all have so much in common and are so far apart. Blogging has been such a huge blessing to me this past year. You have a lovely blog. Your Christmas stockings are so pretty & I am interested in the cookbook too. Blessings to you in 2009. Mildred

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
