A Year’s Reflection: September-December

December 31, 2012

SEPTEMBER

IMG_0949_SepH and I travel down to Huntsville, Alabama for a weekend getaway.  While there, we visit the Huntsville Museum of Art.  We are pleasantly surprised to find this gorgeous blown glass bowl (Radiance Bowl, 2007) by artist Cal Breed in the permanent art collection.  (We have been to his studio in the nearby mountains.)

 

OCTOBER

IMG_3361)OctThere’s always something new to discover when we visit H’s brother and family in Amsterdam.  A day trip to the nearby city of Zaandam reveals a picturesque village known for its working windmills. I have never seen quite so many.  It is a fantastic sight!

 

NOVEMBER

IMG_4227_NovOur family Thanksgiving gathering is filled with laughter, great conversation, and food galore… but the highlight is this cherry pie made by our dear friend H.  With her heavenly desserts there’s always a big competition among the sisters for leftovers.

 

DECEMBER

IMG_4964_DecH surprises his mom with an iPad Mini for Christmas, a gift that causes much eye-rolling… until he shows her how to use it.  She now has a slew of friends on Facebook, keeps up with the news in the Netherlands and New York (her previous home), and enjoys her photo albums.  She is one hip lady.
