Pecans, Roses & a Texas Fire

A pecan resides in this decorative teacup. Like the little mermaid, I, too, have a collection of knick-knacks. I saved this pecan after walking in the woods to enjoy the beauty of a New Year. Since it’s wintertime, I didn’t notice the type of trees until I saw pecans on the ground. I shuffled a few around with my feet like tiny soccer balls & picked one up. Steven asked me, “are you going to eat it?” And I said, “no, I’m going to save it forever.” {Scully can’t eat pecans, nuts are bad for dogs, so I hid it from her.}

¡Feliz año nuevo! Enclosed is a video of a New Year’s Eve fire with two of my favorites: Scully & Steven. Compared to the wild NYE chaos over the last few years, I had a very peaceful and wonderful turn of the year. Staying in with Thai, Mexican & Italian foods, great libations & laughter was soothing. It had been so long since time moved so slow, in a good way… the art of doing nothing but enjoying the simple pleasures of life, love, food, sex, nature and entertainment… I didn’t want the holiday to end, but I’m grateful that it was so lovely. Even the weather on New Year’s Day was gorgeous, and it was a perfect day for coffee, sports, Juice Land, and a sunshine walk in the park. Followed by another fire that burned all day long till we fell asleep.
