Happy New Year to everyone. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I know I haven’t blogged in a while. Here’s what’s been happening around here. Work has been extremely busy, which is a good thing, but keeps me from getting around to blogging.
To recap, towards the end of November the boys and I did the 5K we do every year. This year it was rescheduled from its original date in October because of a weather system that moved in that weekend. It was really cold the day they had it. This year we just took it easy and walked – and tried to keep warm. Also this year we had four others walking with us which made it really fun. We had Lucy who is Tom’s friend, Jerry’s mom, Sarah who is Andy’s friend and coworker, and Wrex who is Tom and Lucy’s dog. It was a good time.
I am in love with Wrex. How can you not love this face?!
I gave Tom my bank card to use at Starbucks for us afterwards, and we both forgot about it until he got home and then Wrex did this before he could put my card in the mail….
But I wasn’t upset – he’s just doing what puppies do! I am probably going to be a terribly spoiling grandmother when that time comes – I can’t even get angry at my grand-dog!
Thanksgiving was quiet and nice. Tom and Lucy had to be in New Hampshire to attend a wedding so it was just the three of us. We had a good time, as usual.
Then I got a cookie order for five dozen snowflake cookies needed by 12/27. They were fun to make. Here they are drying and then packaged and ready to ship.
On Christmas day Tom, Lucy, Wrex and my father came here. We had a big breakfast and a good time. While we were all sitting around the table we Skyped with my sister in Florida and had a nice virtual visit.
I forgot to take any pictures on Thanksgiving or Christmas. Too busy eating and talking, I guess!
I was sent a book for review just before Christmas which I haven’t even started yet. I seriously need to get to that.
I have been reluctant to let Christmas go (as evidenced by the fact that my tree is still in the living room!), but i guess it’s time now. It’s just finding the time to dismantle it. Or, that’s what I tell myself as I’m still enjoying looking at it!
So, there’s a condensed version of my last couple of months. I really hope that 2016 has started out as a wonderful year for all of you and I pray that you all have a healthy, happy, truly blessed new year.
Happy New Year
