I can’t believe it’s the middle of February! I don’t mind one bit when the time flies this time of the year…just means Spring is that much closer. I could be a bear and be happy to sleep right through winter…but, I’m not so I have to try and find the good parts of winter…some days it’s not easy when there is freezing rain and sleet outside. But, even then there is the nice surprise to find like the photos I took below last month of what I call freezing fog…but my good friend Nana told me there was an actual name for it… hoar frost, or pogonip. Thanks Nana! We don’t have this very often but it’s always something to see when we do.
Plus, some gorgeous sunsets…
I don’t make resolutions..maybe I should but then I would probably break them faster than I made them. But, I would like to be able to accomplish some goals this year. Other than the normal loose weight or find a job I would like to be more organized, and have lunch out with friends at least a couple of times a month. Oh, nothing expensive mind ya..just be able to get together and catch up. I thought at the beginning I was going to be able to do it once a week. Wasn’t anything I planned mind you. Just sort of just happened…started at the end of the year when I got together with my friend D for our Christmas together although it was almost a week later. Then, my friend B and I had lunch the next week, my sis (who is also my friend) the next, my sis and 2 nieces the next..I was beginning to enjoy it and look forward to it..then the weather got in the way…so it had been a couple of weeks then I was able to work one day last week and my boss asked me to lunch along with my friend B (also a former co-work) again the next day…now this week I am having lunch with R (aka squirrely) . I would love for this to become a habit or whatever you call it..It would be nice to do it once a week but I know that’s not going to happen so if I can do it once or twice a month then I would be soo very happy.
So, that is one of my goals, another is to be a better friend to those I can’t get together with in person, those long distant friends. Those that I met in letters so many years ago, those that I maybe knew here at one time or another and they moved away, and those that I met on the internet a few years ago or just recently. Write more letters, e-mail more than just forwards, answer more than just questions on a forum, pick up the phone once in awhile and if nothing else keeping up with my blog better than I have been.
Now, to accomplish that organized thing…I’ll play Scarlet O’Hara here…” I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow.”
Bye for now and I promise it won't be almostt 2 months before I post again...
