New Year's Eve

Sorry, but I am doing a boring post to end this 2011.
Oh how I wish I would have taken my camera to Cleveland.
We stayed 3 days and nights in the Hospitality House
directly across from the Clinic.
We were on the 5th floor (top one) and had a perfect view.
The thing I found amazing was that at least every 10-15 minutes 
a helicopter is either arriving or departing the roof of the 
Sydell-Miller Pavilion (the heart center). 
It is amazing to say the least.
I didn't have a bit of boredom watching this nor the people
 going about their business on the street. 
When you are a small town girl living outside of a one-traffic light 
community (that use to be called "a village"), I guess
I would seem like a regular country bumpkin. It is hard for me to believe I was born in West Berlin, West Germany, 
a city of millions of people. I lived there till I was 3 years old and was brought to the States. I have no memory of that time. 
My memory is of an airplane ride (Swiss Air)
that I did not know was across the Atlantic to New York City.
And then my memory was of going to 1st grade, 
no kindergarten for me, and I hated that.
The kindergarten kids had a nifty playhouse in their classroom. It had furniture and a small sink, stove and fridge. It had windows with curtains. It had a table and chairs and all kinds of stuff to play with.
I desperately wanted to play in that!
And so how I got from chatting about Cleveland to kindergarten 
I do not know. Sometimes my mind works like that,
especially when my brain needs a rest. I know one thing, the camera goes with me on Monday, and that I have some great blogging friends. I hope that 2012 is a good year bringing all kinds of good things for us all.
God Bless Everyone! 
Happy New Year!
P.S. I have not forgotten the GIVEAWAY. Please bear with me, 
since our schedule was changed by the Clinic it threw me behind by a day so I will post the details on New Year's Day.


  1. Glad to hear you made it home. Still not a flake to be had here in Chicago. I'm not complaining, but it would be nice to take some new pictures without all the gray skies. Have a relaxing rest of the weekend. I'll keep you posted if snow is on it's way.

  2. Happy New Year to you and your family Susanne. :)

  3. And wishing you a happy New Year too Susanne. May it be filled with new and exciting adventures!

  4. Happy to see that the snow is not piling up out there. Hope you and yours have a wonderful New Year and we pray that Roger does well. Rachel looks wonderful. I will email you soon, Love, Jeanie

  5. Happy New Year Susanne,

    Funny how the mind connects memories, isn;t it?

    May His face smile upon you this year.
