The holidays are over and the frigid weather is upon us. This is one of those days where I want to retire, put on my old lady shawl and curl up with a good book, and a mug of tea and when I tire of that a mug of tea and a good knitting pattern, needles and yarn!
It took me a solid hour to get home tonight which drives me buggy! Ah well, at least I arrived safe and sound and that is something to be thankful for!
I hope you all had wonderful holidays and that your New Year started off in spectacular fashion surrounded by the people you love.
I lost another good friend over the holidays and one of my aunts as well. I have learned that it is ok to mourn the loss of someone you care for, but you are still among the living and you have to keep living and doing. None of us are getting out alive and so we need to make a good impact while we are still here. Try to remember that you are the world to someone out there, someone who cares for you and looks to you for solace, education, etc. Be kind to your fellow humans – it will make you feel better too.
So January is marching forward and the only holidays to look forward to now are Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day. My grandchilden cannot believe it will be an entire year until Christmas comes again – and it seems like such a short time to me!
My good friend Allen Wyatt (from whom I have learned so much) has discontinued his Newsletters. I was so sorry to hear that. He was a giant among men when it comes to the Office Suite. Thankfully, I know I can still ask him questions when I am stumped and so I will still be able to help others.
Try to stay warm and take care of yourselves until next time….
