New year, new moon

After several days of foul weather, the sun sneaked out from behind the clouds mid morning.  The air was still damp so we bundled up to walk.
As we came to the barn, the angle of the morning sun painted the rusty old garden disks golden and I slowed down long enough to snap a photo.
I try hard not to whine about dreary weather, but when we have several days of it in a row, it lays heavy on my spirits, and I long for sunny weather.
Jilda and I both are planning our vision boards for 2014. We both have a lot we'd like to accomplish in the new year.
And speaking of 2014, on the new year will begin with a new moon. This is rare. The last time it happened was 19 years ago. But it's like beginning the new year with a clean slate.
I'm excited for what the new year holds.


  1. Thanks for joining up.
    I just taught my granddaughter, When the moon is facing east he's rising to feast; when the moon is facing west he's going to rest.
    I'll make sure she knows the new year starts with a new moon this year.

    Happy new moon & New Year!!

  3. There is something about rusty plows, garden equipment, fence wire, etc. that I find appealing...especially to photograph. The warmth here makes my heart happy.

  4. I wish you and Jilda the best of everything in the New Year!

  5. We don't have to worry about lack of sunshine down here at this time of the year!!! A virtual tour of OZ might help - although seeing the endless sunshine and not being able to experience might be too depressing! Happy New Year!

  6. That is interesting Rick, New Year with a new moon... wow, 19 years... I am going to take that as a beginning too:)

    Have a fabulous New Year !!

  7. Thanks for the facts on the new year new moon.
    I hope that your wished come true in 2014. Happy New Year.

  8. I really like the idea of new year, new moon...and a new start with a clean slate...I think that is exactly what the World needs right now!

    I'm with you on the weather front!
    We have had storm after storm, and loss of power...yes...some sun now...PLEASE!!

    Happy New Year Rick and Jilda! :)

  9. Our weather has been dreary too. Today it has turned cold again and the rain from yesterday has made everything icy. Light snow is falling now.

  10. I wish I was blogging 19yrs ago. It would be fun to look back and see what we were up to back then. Your pic is so pretty. Even plain, ordinary, rusty tools look lovely in the right light..which is why I prefer candle light ! Ha! I hope you have a great start to the new year. When you and Jilda are admiring that full moon, so will Jack and I....makes it a small world after all!

  11. Hope the clouds stay away so we can see the new moon. It's been strange weather here.

  12. New Year, new moon, new hope. My good friend, wishing Jilda and your fine self, that hopeful new beginning in the year that be 2014. May your dreams become that wondrous reality.

    Gary :)
