The old year and all its festive eating are behind us and the new year awaits us with our resolutions and new plans and dreams As happens every year, I am slow off the mark and January is a month in which I am somewhat lost. I idle and can’t move into a chosen direction. Maybe it is the aftermath of a great time spent with my family and this year was extra special with us all being in the Haute Savoie in the Alps. My soul is still dwelling there in the snow and vagabonding the beautiful peaks.

I did however succeed in picking up some watercolor this afternoon, capturing the shrimps that will be our dinner. and why not a few shitakes mushrooms along with it.

  1. I heard that you got dumped on this year with snow.
    Our friends were stuck for days and finally made it down off the mountains to celebrate New Years with us in Biarritz.
    Bonne année!
    And bonne aquarelle!

    1. Hi Kathryn…yes, we got stuck in 17hour travel locking on our way home..snowstorm, traffic jams, cars without snow equipment…you name it. But we stayed patient, finished the last of the holiday cookies while stranded and I am now working to get rid of those car-stuck-cookie-hips!

  2. I love Shitake mushrooms!!! I discovered them in SA (thank you Woollies!) I heard that apparently you can actually grow them! Did you know that?

Tthank you for your visit and comment, II appreciate it!
