All things bright …
So here we are, embarking (almost) on a new year. I am sure every one of us is looking on the brightest side we can.
For me, the holidays are wonderful, no matter what else is going on. By the way, to those of you who have been with me these last few years as I toss my thoughts into the wild blue universe, thank you so much. I am grateful for and to you.
Those new people who are following me and just helped me pass another milestone, welcome and thank you too. I hope I don’t disappoint you.
By the way, to those readers who left because I speak my mind: thank you for being with me when you were. I cannot worry about some being offended by what I see as the truth — after much research, analysis and thought given to the topics on which I expound, LOL — and I am confident I have been quite restrained and diplomatic, if not downright generous to everyone I meet.
Goodbye and Good Luck, as Keith Olbermann and Edward R. Murrow used to say.
This past few weeks has been frenzied. I wrapped up a large project, then had to run down to the new house to meet some contractors. Now back up in the Valley, I am furiously cleaning, buying, wrapping and more cleaning. While all this was going on, I had to produce the family holiday video. Errrrr….
I thought this would be an easy Christmas and that we would just be spending one day with Geoffrey’s family and then heading down to SD to be with my family. So, I made every woman in the family a lacy shawl complete with shawl pins that I picked for each individual — over a dozen people.
But at the last minute they switched and told me everyone is coming to our house in LA. That means buying more gifts to put out here, new slippers for everyone (we don’t wear shoes in our homes), and making stockings for newcomers, like the baby. Madness – Yikes!
So, you will have to forgive me if I am only here sporadically for awhile. I will be visiting you, however.
Here are some new photos of our second neighborhood. Next up will be more captures from the lake nearby us up here.
If I don’t find another way to say it: Happy Holidays and of course Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah everyone.
No matter who you are or where, nor whether you come here and agree or disagree, I love you!
