We wish our family and friends a joyous holiday
2007 has been a fun and satisfying year for us. We travelled a little more than usual, both abroad and around the USA. We both feel healthy and are thankful for our physically active lifestyle. Our home in New Hampshire has everything we need at this point. Our families are well and grandchildren are growing up nicely.
I did more family geneaological research this year and had a few breakthrough moments with new and interesting events in the lives of my ancestors. I am overwhelmed with information at the moment and much more needs to be done. I plan to do a family tree for my Mother's side of the family this year - my Brewer relatives please take note.
We are more involved in Wolfeboro activities, with new friends and new activities. Inger joined two garden clubs, I continue as treasurer for the Friends of Music, and joined the church vestry, and we are co-chairs for programing for the Newcomers club.
No travel for us this winter. We will pursue our hobbies here in the quiet of NH, and enjoy the outdoors on our snowshoes. We have acquired sap buckets and an evaporator to make maple sugar from our maple trees come late winter and early spring. We think they did sugaring in the past on this old farm because of the remnants of an old sugar building amongst a stand of maples.
Here are some pictures of our year
