Monday, December 31, 2012 Happy New Year !

Oh yeah, New Years eve and what am I up to ?  well here I am waiting, waiting.  Waiting for what you ask? 
Well last year 2012 had ups and downs, a lot of downs very few ups.
 Most of you close bloggers know I had to say bye to my Angie, 
that was the biggest down and  will already be one year Jan 24. 
Lost my sweet cat Mary Louise suddenly, unexpected, very unexpected as in you say 'goodnight Mary Louise ' and in the morning she never got up .. 
Pneumonia, the hip surgery , and don't let anyone tell you it's not a major surgery, it IS. 
Other disappointments that by now I should be use to, but I'll never understand or 'get use to ' when people you love leave you out of their life. 
The ups were mostly to do with my painting .. I won 5 different awards ... That was a good feeling, and I was humbled by it.
So now I'm waiting to see what 2013 will bring. I'm hoping for the best, I'm still gonna plant my apple  (lemon ) tree, because the ups don't last and the downs don't last either. 
 I'm wishing all of you HAPPY NEW YEAR !
oh , the babe at the top? made her and half dozen others when I was in my doll making period.. Here's a couple more that have gone to friends, family.
