Happy start to the new year -- starting early!

(It is warm enough here that the
tulips might start blooming outside. So
the current flowers in my kitchen are
not cold at all. Still I like this drawing.)

It is a decidedly rainy day, but very warm. Steven and I have been listening
to a P.E.I. (Prince Edward Island) radio station playing Christmas carols and
songs for what felt like forever, but was probably just from December 1, to
December 26.  

Today as we sat eating our takeout lunch wraps on a street facing Casa Loma,
which is all lit up -- regular rock, soul, and blues music came on, and it felt
like a party.  How we've missed music without a theme.  Christmas music
was a brilliant distraction even though we are not religious, but what a treat
to have the music back.  It felt like the start of a new year.

I feel inspired to start the new year, but for now -- a short holiday with 
my man. Happy Holidays.

Have a loving your life day.
