Wednesday In Japan. . . Year of the Ram !

Lucky me that my Wednesday Japaneses Blog falls on New Years Eve.
If you have followed this blog for any time you know Japanese Son 
sends me every Christmas, the animal of the new Zodiac year. 

This time it is Year of the Ram.
 Isn't he beautiful
 What a lovely Ram
 Even the box is wonderful.
I have used the boxes to wrap gifts and make postcards.
Every year along with my Chistmas Cards. I make a New Year card to send out.
New Year is the Holiday in Japan. Much like our Christmas.
And everyone sends out New Year postcards.
Some unforeseen problems popped up in December, throwing off all my plans.
With the weeks leading up to Christmas and the New Year
a flurry of phone calls, new real-estate lawyer, great finical help (Thank You, Liz and Andy) and some very unnecessary grinch people.
E-mail, faxes and one last mintue run to FedX with Son and just 10 mintues to spare.
This also included a plan where if he saw me waving he was to throw
his body in front of the last FedX pick-up till my papers got into the truck.
Whew !
Because of this many friends did not get a Christmas or New year Card.
Sorry,  I just ran out of time.
Next year will be better.
And just because I can here is you mid week pretty.
One last look at my Christmas Tree with colored lights and the bird origami that 
Daughter made that I use every year.

Happy New Year !
