January 1st. 2012

January 1st. 2012
 Another year to look forward to...forget about the things we were supposed to do last year and look ahead. Its the only way.

2011 began with Kym having kidney stones, this year begins with him sick in bed with a chest much for New Years Eve! No, we didn't have plans anyhow... its just a busy time of year, workwise.
2011 we built a new room for The Patchwork Apple and moved in May.
2011 I did numerous quilt fairs all over Aust. as well as organising a quilt display of my own in Oct.
2011 a few 50th. birthday partys and heaps of (friends)new babies...(our second grandy due in Feb.!)
2011 Kym was asked to travel to USA and Chile, as he will also do in '12.
2011 Jessica and Sarah began their 'Red Cherry' patterns and now making lots of appliqued T Shirts. See their facebook page. They have a lot planned for '12, on the personal front. 
2011 Olivia worked hard all year and begins a new chapter in the new year.
2011 Cherries were quite good. We finished Friday..thank goodness...its now 41C today, so if there were any left they would now be shrivelled! As well as us pickers! These pics. are 'Rainiers', a sweet light variety which we often don't pick due to bad weather.
 So 2012...I'm not much on 'New Years Resolutions' except for the lose weight and get fit 'usuals' but as I previously blogged, I was going to plan ahead more, so I guess I have made a resolution for this year. yeh!
One thing I did plan, was to take Jemima to the Lobethal Pageant. The last couple years, we've missed, so now that Jemima is just old enough this was the Plan.  Everyone else 'piked it' but Sarah and I. It was a lovely warm evening and little Jem loved it all. It was perfect.
She's also very busy with our new chooks. She calls them the 'brock brocks' !! Think about it...what does a chook say?
As well as our veggie garden. This pic is just the peas and raspberries but do we have some tomatoes!!

So to all of you in blogland,  Happy New Year!
Sit back, enjoy life and don't forget to laugh!
cheers Jane ***

Happy New Year to you and the family Jane. Of course the chooks would be called "Brock brocks" are so cute (and clever)!

Happy New Year Jane! The cherries look awesome and so does the vegie patch. I am hoping to get up and see you soon...I am beginning to feel the fog lifting and normal life returning.
