mundane monday #62

and so here it is, the last monday of the year.
theres a lot about this year that i'd like to forget, but one of the few things that i'd like to remember is that this is the year that i became a potterhead. (oh yeah, i know i'm supposed to be an adult and everything, but hey.)

i posted something about books last december too. still, i end yet another year without reading as much as i would have liked to.

throwback thursday - TBT #20

what could be better today than some wonderful vintage christmas cards - here are some four of them... i've linked the sources below each of them.

 a little boy heading out into the snow, from the graphics fairy.

these lovely birds with windmills in the backdrop, from flickr.

 two young boys in sailors' clothes, waving from the top of a ship, found on wikimedia.

lastly, this funny looking card for a christmas party in december 1918, from wikimedia.
the party announces fancy dress and cards(whist)... note the menu - it is apparently from 1918(according to the info in the file) - the 1st world war would have just ended, and most food items like sugar & butter would have still been in rationing.

mundane monday - #61

just one more monday to go in the year...

'tis the season... and the halls are decked...

as the year winds down and another is around the corner, i think it is at the very core of human nature, to rise up from all that seems to drag us down, and move on with eternal hope. 
in reply to every adversity that life throws our way, hope is the only answer that humanity has to offer, time and again. 
hope that each day shall be better than yesterday, that each year will be better than the one gone by.
