Well goodbye to 2016! I don’t remember a year that was so universally hated. Here’s hoping that 2017 brings new beginnings, creativity, happiness and joy to all.

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” – Winston Churchill

Coffee and socializing. It’s a Greek thing 😉

Happy New Year everyone! Wishing that 2015 will be a happier, peaceful and warmer (!) new year.

I went downtown last Sunday and I took a few photos of the craziness that is Athens during the Christmas season. I was lucky that I went downtown before the winter weather really hit us.  Today’s weather reminds me of the awful Canadian winters that I lived through as a child and that I would like to forget-but can’t! (urghhh) I enjoy the mild winters in Greece.  December felt like October; I was still racking leaves! Now, all of the mountains in Athens and the rest of Greece are covered in snow, and the Athenians are not pleased about that not one bit. Also, it wasn’t such a great end to the new year for Greece for a few reasons like the call for early elections that no one wants, the nautical catastrophe of the ship ‘Norman Atlantic’, and the ‘Canadian weather’. So, let us hope that next year will not be ‘doom and gloom’ as  some people say it will be. I’ll  just say that it is going to be a better year.. no a great year! ;))

 

Happy (Bile- less) New Year!/Ευτυχισμένο (με λιγότερη χολή) το Νέο Έτος!

Ι love this quote. I appreciate truthfullness!
“Happiness is too many things these days for anyone to wish it on anyone lightly. So let’s just wish each other a bile-less New Year and leave it at that.” Judith Crist

«Η ευτυχία είναι πάρα πολλά πράγματα αυτές τις μέρες για οποιονδήποτε να το ευχόμαστε σε κανέναν ελαφρά. Οπότε αςευχόμαστε o ένας τον αλλον μια νέα χρονιά με λιγότερη χολή και να το αφήσουμε έτσι”. Judith Crist
