It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Old Year, New Year

Yes, I had to sleep under a big fluffy comforter last night , 3 cats along with me ... it was cold !
Then I remembered, I forgot to turn off  the A/C ...
We all slept like babies ... although it was still a bit chilly this morning.

I think I am a bit emotionally wiped out but that will right itself in a day or two.

I have friends who offer comfort and good advice ... this goes under Priceless.

I have Plans starting to form and Hope always poking me and telling me not to despair.

So today is a day of making lists, talking to people who handle things for me and making another list and checking it twice.

I think this is the proper way to say goodby to the Old Year and prepare for the New Year, don't you?

If things are quiet here, don't worry, there is 1- nothing to talk about 2- nothing going on 3- too much going on ..

Wishing everyone reading this, a Happy New Year and Stay Well !!

  1. Having three little furry animals who love you and keep you warm is worth a lot. Animals love you unconditionally – whether you are sweet or cross, looking good or not having a good hair day – cats are a joy for those who love them. A new year, with new ideas, new projects and new outlook - you will see, 2017 will be a good year for you!

  2. Happy New year to you and the team. I am quite happy to stay in with my cat and say goodbye to this year. Hopefully next year will be easier.
