City Views, Country Dreams

Happy New Year to one and all from New York!


Here is a plate of freshly baked New Year's cookies to accompany whatever beverage you all might choose to refill that Christmas tea cup.

This first day of January offers us opportunities to make plans, knowing that those plans might evolve.  It's also a grand time to connect with folks who mean so much to us.  Many thanks to all who visit here.  It's such a pleasure to read your comments, and experience many marvelous connections all around the world.

Do enjoy the cookies while they are still warm!

Wishing you many adventures in 2013 Frances... the cookies look great. Our cupboards are now bare of all treats; my husband wants to lose weight before his Ironman race this year and so all temptations have been banished. Before Christmas I found myself hiding a cappucino cake in a casserole dish in the kitchen cupboard! It did taste good, I suspect it tasted particularly good because it was my secret stash. Take care and stay warm x

Don’t mind if I do take a couple of your cookies – mighty fine looking! I think they’ll go well with a small glass of eggnog with a drop of Bourbon…. to keep us warm at least. Have a wonderful 2013!
