Happy new year, from The Perfect Pantry to your pantry

Log House, winter 2011

Happy snow on the roof, happy fire in the hearth, happy champagne, happy cocoa, happy long walk, happy parade of roses, happy revels, happy resolutions, happy snow forts and snow angels. Happy first night. Happy first light.

Thank you for spending time here in 2011.

(PS: This photo is from last winter; we haven't had sticking snow here since a freaky one-day storm in October. I couldn't be happier.)


Happy new Year.....and ditto on the snow sentiment :)

I'll take all of the above with thanks! Including the lack of snow! Happy New Year, Lydia!

Lovely sentiments, Lydia! Wishing all the same to you. May the snow on your roof always be temporary. ;-) Unlikely that it will *always* be temporary, but still when sending wishes, send the best ones, right? I'm a snow lover myself, but that's probably due to the fact I live in VA where it's more often a special treat. Happy New Year, dear!

Have a wonderful New Year! I so want snow - the storm in October came in the middle of putting a roof on our house - that was miserable but I want to go snowshoeing and iceskating and the weather's been really uncooperative - it's going to be warm enough this weekend to grill outside!

Wishing you and Ted and glorious New Year, and looking forward to lots more tasty recipes from you in 2012.

(And ditto on the snow here and I am perfectly happy with it as well!)

Happy Healthy New Year Lydia and Ted!

Lovely photo! I'm glad we haven't had snow, yet. ;-)

Happy Happy New Year!

Wishing you all a wonderful new year. And I knew I wasn't alone in feeling that the snow could hold off a bit longer! Only my husband Ted, Canadian that he is, is sorry the weather has been so mild and dry.

Yay, the new computer allows me to comment on your blog. o happy to be back Lydia! Have a wonderful new year and we look forward to many tasty soups and dishes in 2012.

Deeply lovely sentiments - thank you, Lydia. I wish all good things for you, too, and look forward to spending some of the new year with you and your blog.

I completely agree about the snow - although like Ted, my husband (who is from Iowa) yearns for snow.

I enjoyed your lovely wishes and hope that you will have a wonderful 2012. The rain has washed the last of our snow away and that makes me happy. I can drive an hour up the the mountains if I want to enjoy it. I'm sure it is right around the corner but after last years two feet on the ground at Christmas and lots more after...I like this for a change.

Bellini, yay! Welcome back (and welcome to the world of Mac). Happy new year!

Judy, we can send these men to a place where there's snow, and we can be happy here where it's warmer and dry! Happy new year.

Karen, I wish you the same. I, too, am grateful for every day there is no snow or ice on the ground.

I was about to be jealous of your snow!!

Happy New Year!

Don't wish for snow too early.

Happy and healthy wishes for a new year for you and Ted!

Outside of all the agreed upon happy things, I showed my hubster the photo which garnered a whoa and the we laughed because we remember barely escaping that freakish snow storm in October. Happy New Year, Lydia!
