Yuletide Excuses or why I haven't been blogging

The reason I have been neglecting my blog is that I have spent the holiday season moving to a new home. There have been times when I did not know where my cameras were, my hanging sculpture is tucked into a bag somewhere. It was difficult to think about art. We moved a week before Christmas and plunged right into the holiday madness. 

Then the blizzard hit and for some reason the entire city collapsed into chaos. 

The kitties were not disturbed by the snow, or the glacial cold. Our new home has a patio. Once the wind died down, I went out there and made a little sitting area around the brazier that a dear friend offered as a house warming gift (and it is warm).

We put a log on the brazier and the beloved amused us by burning old papers.

It was our yule celebration.

Slowly things are returning to normal. I am beginning to get ideas for the new year. I will have a garden to work on my green art in. Maybe I will finally grow some moss. I have some plant cuttings taking root for another round of street art. The new neighborhood is beautiful in a scruffy way. I can't wait to get to work.

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
