WOYWW – A New View

A New View - Winter

Happy New Year, dear friends! Today I’d like to begin our 2013 Journey together by sharing a different type of WOYWW photo. This is the view from my new workspace. In all of the years I’ve been participating in WOYWW, I’ve never posted a view from my window because, in my previous space, the view overlooked two parking lots (so uninspiring, I turned my back away from the window during my entire stay there!) Needless to say, I love my new view! I find it very inspiring.

One of the things I love most about this view is that I actually have a chance to see the seasons change. I live in a place where things stay pretty green most of the year, so it has been such a blessing to me to see trees that change colors with the seasons! Tsunami and Legend love their new view too – perhaps a little too much. They are often vying for a spot in the window and Legend has already left his marks in the screen!

One Word 2013 - Journey

Speaking of Journeys… are any of you are participating in the One Word Challenge? If so, I am hosting a One Word Blog Hop and I’d love for you to share the One Word that you’ve chosen for 2013! My word is Journey and I’ll be writing about that theme throughout the year!

Legend & My New Unaltered Planner

2013 is also the time to break out our new calendars and planners! I brought a pretty blue one to alter, but I haven’t had a chance to decorate it yet… so hopefully, that will happen between now and our next date together!

Legend is showing off his best scowl in the photo above… but if you’d like to see a sweeter photo of the boys, visit Tsunami and Legend this week at Wordless Wednesday!

Tsunami & Legend - A New Day

Have a wonderful week and thank you all for being a part of my creative journey through WOYWW!

      Hi Amanda,

      You will love the One Word Challenge… instead of making a long list of New Year’s Resolutions, you choose one word to symbolize what you want the year to represent for you. There’s some more info about it on the post – I hope you join! 🙂

      Thanks Nikki – I could not believe it (I must have pressed that button 8 times to verify it!)
      Thank you SO much for designing all of those buttons – as you can see, I’ve been having fun changing my WOYWW wardrobe each week!

  4. Very nice view from your window. My window looks out on a street and all the drive ways so I usually sit with my back to the window too! Love the pics of the cats too…they are so sweet! Hope you have a Happy New Year and I look forward to seeing your posts in 2013! Vickie #17

    Ah, there’s nothing like working under a window, I love it. Nice to have non evergreens in your line of vision, they sure do chart the passage of the year!

  11. I love the view of your tree, I guess it will change colour with the seasons and the mood that the sky is in. Congratulations on being an early bird this morning Tracey ±48

  12. Glenda says:

    Yes indeed that is a great new view! I love my window behind my desk…I have a bird feeder just outside and some days I just get swept away by the fluttering wings outside!

  13. Bernice says:

    Happy new year. Nice new view – I’m sure the cats will love watching their feathered friends from your window!

    That is a lovely view! I’d be interested to see it in all four seasons!

    Hello there, your cat looks ready to journal in the new book. Journey is a good word for the year. We shall have a ponder and see what word we can come up with.

  19. Jaki Morris says:

    I am really lucky as I have a view out to my back garden and we have an apple tree which is always full of birds. I spend ours just watching them, I’m sure your cats would too!

    Nice view. Love the scowl! Kitties do that so well. 😀 I’m not familiar with the One Word challenge. I’ll definitely look into it. My word would have to be “Celebrate”. . . I am celebrating life, age and my art! New Year’s greetings! Nan 78

      Thanks Ike!
      When we moved my husband wanted me to move to the basement and I refused.
      Even though the room boils in the summer – I could not pass up the view!

      SO glad you love my cats! Happy new year to you!
