Happy New Year and Eye Candy Blogfest

Happy New Year wonderful readers! I had a blast last night and the SP and I were in bed just in time to watch the fireworks out our window - those we could see without moving that is. Yep, that's the way to welcome in the New Year.
I already told you all my writing goals - for the rest go and see me at Living the Complicated Simple Life!


There is an Eye Candy Blogfest being hosted by Vicki over at  Rambles and Randomness  .   The rules are simple - post photos that make you happy. So here goes - these are all mine and they were all taken this year. Yay!

Great pictures! I love the little one with his nose pressed up against the glass! I laughed out loud.

Thanks for joining in the fun! This has been a great way to start the new year.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Oh my, oh my, oh my. I smiled throughout this lineup of wonderful shots. I love the silly dog, pleased cadet and nosy boy. Here's to another year of delight, my friend. Happy 2011!

the ears! Awesome!
My aunt used to live in Nova Scotia, she's now in Whitehorse, YT.
I'm amazed at how many people I've run into from Nova Scotia on my internet travels.

Love your pictures. The dog and the kid with nose pressed against the glass made me smile the most.

Happy New Year!

Jan Morrison said...

Oh what fun! Thanks for all the terrific comments - yep the young fella full of curiosity is a fave of mine too. The cadet one was taken on the day Arlo and I visited the Queen - he is the handsome gent with the beard and a vet so I love the juxtaposition.
Now I'm going visiting your blogs! Yeehaw.

Love your pictures, Jan! I particularly love Arlo (is that his name?) and the young sailors, but your animals are wonderful!

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Great pics, Jan! I'm loving the cow. Where is that gorgeous coastline?

Wishing you everything you wish yourself (plus extra)

Wow, what a selection! I especially love the squished face against the window. Happy new year

Liza said...

Awesome pictures! Were you really that close to the queen?

Jan Morrison said...

Hi all glorious readers or in this case viewers! The beach picture is the day after Hurricane Earl - the girl closest is my step-dot and we are at Queensland Beach. And speaking of the Queen's land - yep I was that close to her. It was thrilling and what was more thrilling was that I remembered to take a gazillion photos. This one is my favourite because of the dear look on her face when talking to vets. I love that about her!

Jan Morrison said...

Oh Elspeth, I just realized you meant the Cape Breton shot - that is from somewhere near Inverness, Cape Breton - isn't it so beautiful. Cape Breton always makes me smile!

Stephen Tremp said...

Kids, animals, and great scenery always make for great pics. Have a great New Year!

Rayna M. Iyer said...

The kiddo with his nose pressed against the glass is the cutest of the lot.

Happy New Year, Jan.

Jan Morrison said...

Thanks Stephen - you have a good one too!
Natasha - yes, I'm rather fond of that one - he has so much want in his face.
