Friday My Town Shoot Out - The New Year

This week's Theme is The New Year. I shot a number of different things for this week:

 On New Year's Eve, I took out my Jar of Blessings and dumped them all on my bed:

The Cat helped me read through them all to remember all of the good things that happened this year:

New Year's Eve, I made a couple of Walking Fondues to take with me:

New Year's Day called for a hike at Mt. Diablo State Park and Rock City. I think these are Acacia Trees. I love the red bark:
My hike was with Corky, The singularly best thing to happen this last year was meeting her, and letting her into my heart and my life. She fits into all of those empty spaces in my soul, and I love her:

The View from the rocks, looking toward the San Francisco Bay:

 I hope you all have a very happy and healthy year ahead!

Go see more photos and join us here:

I love the idea of a blessings jar. Yesterday after I read this I decided to place a blessings from each day into a jar. My blessing today the sun was shining all day. All the blessings to you and yours for the coming year.

I like the blessings jar idea, too. The first shot of that is my favourite although I really like the shot of your friend emerging from between rocks. Happy New Year to you and yours.

I have often thought of doing a jar of blessings...never gotten around to it though. I kind of use my blog for that. I like re-reading through the past year.

A jar of blessings - I love that idea! Happy New Year.

Barb said...

Congratulations on finding that special someone. Happy new year to you both.

I don't have a jar but I do have a notebook for my list of blessings. That tree bark is so unusual. I don't think it's the same as our acacia tree.Late, but still -- Happy New Year!

Yes, finding love is the best that can happen in a year (a life time). The tree is unusual, I have never seen a bark so blood red. The shot of the new(?) red bark intwined with the older grey (?) is my favorite. Good luck to you in the coming year. Ginger
