Happy New Year

… to all of you!

2009 had been a busy year with a lot of changes in my life and I’m glad having a few days off. Some good friends came around for New Year’s Eve, and we spent the turn of the year at a precipitous hill next to where we live watching the New Year’s fireworks, sledding and welcoming the new year.


Snowmen with snowdog.
Snowman Karl and his dog Apollo II are now inhibitants of our garden – at learst untils it’s ging to become warmer. Jan-Christoph, Leo and me needed about two hours to build those lovely guys. We decorated them with nuts and birdseed, so even our little friends could enjoy them.


Fun with Sled.
Jan-Christoph tried to do some kind of sled skating and I was feeling five years old again… – Great fun!

It’s been snowing for the last two or three days and Lukas, our friends and I did nothing else but sledding, building snowmen and engaging ourselves in exhausting snowball fights with our neighbour’s kids.

I don’t know why but I always believed the first day of a new year would tell me how the next twelve months are going to be. This year started with fun and joyful activity, with creativity and hearty friendship.

– I really hope yours is going to be alike.
