2013 - The Dawn of a NEW YEAR!

The first dawn of a new year and this is what I saw out my window.  Made me depressed, especially since I tossed and turned all night and woke up with a chest cold.  I didn't want to be depressed!  I went to bed in such a good mood because we had spent a wonderful time New Year's Eve with family, eating good food, visiting and watching a move.  (As a side note, if you have children or grandchildren from about the age of 7 up, a wonderful movie to watch as a family, especially at Christmas time, is The Ultimate Gift.)

Back to the picture and my mood.  I decided I wouldn't be depressed and I could choose to change my attitude.  And I didn't need to look at this boring photo either.   Thanks to modern technology, I can choose to change this scene in my mind's eye with a few clicks of a mouse...............


Ahhhh, that's better.  I feel happier already!  I think it's going to be a great year!!  I'll probably put this in my 'I Hate Winter' folder on my SmugMug site!  (NOTE:  as usual, when I do MAJOR edits, I always confess....well almost always!)
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND I WISH YOU JOY, HEALTH, PEACE AND MANY  GREAT PHOTO OPS!
