My Wish for the New Year.More . . . . please.

happy surprises.

More sunrises
with magic in their promise.

More Mystery and the opportunity to go exploring.

More listening to the voices that say 'come in'.

More glistening tree tops

More beauty in unexpected places.

More 'firsts' and TLC from a caring hubby.

chances for a bullseye.

More time
to look at clouds . . .


More please.

And more new friends while cherishing the old.

All my wishes for all good things in the New Year - to you and those you cherish.

Cathy, I hope you get all those things and more. Happy New Year to you and yours

Here's wishing you more of what you want for 2009! Happy New Year Cathy!

Mary said...

Dear Cathy,

You did not need to draw the cloud form. I saw them, too :o)

Your "mores" are what we all wish for...

I wish you "more joy" in 2009.

I miss your posts.


Mary said...

Is that your puppy behind the zipper? :o)

Anvilcloud said...

More writing? :)

All the best.

Cathy said...

Three Collie,

Thank you, my friend. Just after the New Year some major milestones will have been surmounted and I'll be dropping by to make sure all is well with you and your family.

Nature Woman,

I can't tell you what it's meant that good people like you have continued to check in on me. Thank you so very much. As I mentioned to Three Collie above - I'll be back in blogdom in the New Year and will check on you - for sure.


Yes! Yes! You would see the cloud critters without my cartoons :0)

Tito is one of my brother's family's two chiuauas. We're buds. I sneak him food.

Thank you for missing me.

That's a great gift - to be missed.


Cathy said...

AC -

Dang. Your having kept me on your blog roll is pretty touching.

Thank you so much.

Yes. I'll be back. Writing? Well. I find that fewer words and more pictures satisfies my poets soul. (And gets me off the hook for having to come up with good prose ;0D

All the best to you and Cuppa.

Cuppa said...

I second that! More, more, more!

Cathy said...


Thank you, dear:0)

Laurie said...

Oh Cathy, this is a wonderful post. I have missed you so much, seeing photos of you gives me a great sense of relief.

Thank you,

Cathy said...


Dear friend. How kind.
When things settle in the next couple weeks I, too, will breathe sighs of relief as I catch up with fellow-bloggers and their lives as we all head into 2009.

2009?! Wow.

Big hug,

Daisy-Winifred said...

Good prose... never stops me:0)
Wishing you time for considering many clouds, watching birds and finding whimsey round every corner plus love, laughter and much light.

Cathy said...

Dearest DW -

And you know how I wish all these good things to you in abundance there across the great pond.

Anvilcloud said...

Hah! It's been so long that you posted to my wrong blog. But, yes, there's a new one on the way. Be well.

Cathy said...



So I landed on a earlier blog and THAT IS Smudge! :0D

How sweet. Another on the way.

KGMom said...

Happy happy new year!
Love all your pics and your wishes for more.
Sure hope you can shoot straight! Very trusting hubby to do adjusting whilst you hold a weapon.

May 2009 bring you health, happiness, and all the "mores" you wish for.

Cathy said...

KG Mom!

Really. It's so good to see old friends still dropping by.

Thank you. Thank you.

And thank you for being the first to mention those Annie Oakley shots :0)

Trust me. That's the first I've fired a gun and I assure you that no beginner was more cautious than I. Having never held a loaded gun - I was on hyper-alert.

I'm slowly picking up the traces and in a week or so hope to have gotten reacquainted with all my old blogging buddies.

Happy Happy New Year, dear!

Thank you so much for not giving up on me.

Patrice said...

"I find that fewer words and more pictures satisfies my poets soul..."

I couldn't agree more. Art is what's left to the reader (viewer) to discern. Less is more.

May the new year bring you many wondrous moments.

Tammy said...

Welcome back! I so enjoyed these beautiful shots.

Ruth said...

I am glad you dropped by and let me know you are still around. Your post is wonderful...I do like your little red squirrel! All the best in the New Year.

DayleShockley said...

Just stumbled upon your blog... can't even remember how I got here now, but what a delight.

Cathy said...

Patrice, Tammy, Ruth and Dayle.

It's always good to see my old friends have dropped by and I love to welcome the new.

I hope you're staying cozy during this interesting winter.

Patrice I think you've had a lot of rain in your neighborhood.

Tammy - I'll bet you've had snow around your pretty new place in the mountains.

Ruth - Oh Ruth! If you've had any of what Ohio has. Brrrrrr.

Dayle. I've yet to discover your neighborhood. Hope it's sunny:0)

It's now wonder I missed this post-it was on my Birthday.-Those elephant images are pretty cool!

Thanks for this great post.
