Well there was no snow for Christmas but we had a warm week. Now we just sit and wait to see what happens for the rest of the winter.

Happy birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week.

Happy New Year to you all of you. It was a quiet one for me just the way I like it. I was with my great niece Amanda and her son Oliver, who kept us very entertained.

It is the time of year that the snow birds are heading south. I laugh as a couple of my friends were packed up and headed out on New Year’s day. One friend called and said she made it okay, but it was a scary ride because they ran into many accidents along the way. But they are there safe, as are their friends who live near them and they are having a great reunion.
