Goodbye 2015

Goodbye sun, 

see you next year.

Tonight The Goat Herd had prepared an activity for us. Along with our yearly tradition of list making (three things we value, three we want to change and three we wish for), she had provided mandalas for us to colour. 


Whilst not everyone’s idea of a rocking New Years Eve, it fitted us perfectly.

Happy New Year!

    • It was really nice; I don’t know how many years have elapsed since I sat down with colouring pencils 🙂 Happy New Year to you all as well…it must be just about upon you as I type

      • My eldest daughter spent most of Christmas colouring in her adult colouring book. She finds it so calming. It is just approaching 10.30 at night and as you no doubt realise we are partying away at home here. Me on my laptop, Richard has just poured himself a drink and is watching TV and Elinor is listening to music in her room! In half an hour we will congregate in the living room and see in the New Year together listening to favourite music. Alice is safely back in Sheffield tonight and will be with friends. Missing her already.

  1. Sounds like a great way to see in the new year. I spent mine playing the press-o-matic board game and Uno with my elder 2 kids. It was one of the best new years I’ve had. 🙂
    Happy new year to you all.

  2. Happy New Year – we have about 8 hours to go, and I’m just watching the last of our sunshine fade out behind the hills – but no time lapse photography to show you – well done Renovator. I love the idea of the lists of three, I may “borrow” it, or adapt it in some way. The mandalas are beautiful, nice idea. “Adult” colouring books seem to be all the rage this winter – but give me a good book or a crossword puzzle any day.for that kind of relaxation. I’m not good at staying inside the lines, in more ways than one.

    • I struggled but blamed my glasses 😊 we make lists of three every year and review them after making the new year ones…and i still make as big a dent in the gravel path each morning

  3. Coloring is really getting popular for adults. We got my MIL a couple coloring books for Christmas. I have my eye on one that I saw at Lowe’s. It looks like it would be so fun- it is garden stuff!

    • Farm Girl received a couple of adult colouring books for her birthday. As such a worldly wise eight year old, she felt the normal book subjects were well beneath her and I tend to agree, seeing the effort, concentration and persistence she willingly invests in these lovely drawings.
