Good morning. It's a bit gray and cold outside here, but it's early. At the moment, it is 16F and hopefully will get up to about 30F today. We will be closing out 2013 and starting off 2014 with a lot of artic cold and a snowstorm. As long as the roads are good to drive on tonight and next Sunday night, I'll be fine.
As you can tell from reading my posts lately, life at my house has been blessedly dull. At my age, dull can be very good. I'm liking this slower paced life. A nap whenever I feel like it, and mealtimes whenever Pogo and I get hungry. The only schedule we have to follow is when I go to work, and if we have an appointment for something or other. Nice!
I have a couple of photos to share that I took of the sky as day was breaking yesterday morning before I left work. The colors were so pretty. (even though the ground was covered with black ice)
Being able to photograph a beautiful sky is one of the many things I am thankful for. Most important, I am so thankful for my family and friends. I am so thankful for the new friends that I have made through blogging. I am ever so thankful for my Pogo. I am so thankful for every day and every thing that He gives me.
My friend Rhoda sent me an email with good wishes for the New Year, and I will share them with you.
"May you find perfect balance in the company you keep."
"May you have as much fun as you can before someone makes you stop."
"May the worst thing that happens to you come in slobbery pink and furry tan."
"May you manage to make time for time out."
"And may your friends and family always bring you joy."
My friend Rhoda also sent me this wonderful little poem which I'm also going to share with you.
"May light always surround you;
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your hurts turn to healing;
Your heart embrace feeling.
May wounds become wisdom;
Every kindness a prism.
May laughter infect you;
Your passion resurrect you.
May goodness inspire
Your deepest desires.
Through all that you reach for,
May your arms never tire."
I'm wishing you a very Blessed and Wonderful 2014
However you plan to celebrate and welcome in the New Year, do be careful and enjoy it safely. I will be working, and watching the fireworks on TV tonight Pogo will be at home helping Joe to celebrate his birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOE!!!
So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fabulous day. I'll see you in the New Year.
Hugs, Edna B.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!!
