New Year, Adventures, and Memories

Happy New Year


The time has arrive, we have crossed into the year of our Lord, TWO THOUSAND FOURTEEN.  I am ever so excited about what the new year holds for my family and I.  We are all looking forward to the adventures in store and the stories to be shared (blogged).

2014 will be a year of changes, additions, high expectations for us as The Boy graduates from high school in the summer and a couple of months after that, my fourth grandchild will make their arrival.  Sometime during the year I am hoping to get out to Seattle and visit with my oldest son and his family.

I hope you take time for adventures; making sure to include family and friends. From our home to yours, we wish you all a blessed, fulfilled, happy, and adventurous year!

Out With The Old, In With The New


I am either extremely late or a tad early on purging as it is October and yet I have an overwhelming desire to clean out my past and LET IT GO!  We all have things in our past that at one time or another, for our own sake, we need to release so we can go and grow into our future.  Now is the time for me.

There are people (or a particular person) who have come into my life somewhat recently and have shown me it is okay to clean the cobwebs, dust down the memories and get excited about the future. To them I say Thank You!

Some people with whom I’ve crossed paths with in another lifetime, town, or circumstance will see that I’ve drifted from their lives.  This has been done purposefully and for no other reason than cleaning house.  I wish them the best for what their future holds because I can no longer put my future on hold.

There can be times with people weigh you down emotionally and drain your energy and we wonder why…why we are in a rut, have no energy, have no desire to seek fresh, new, and exciting people, places and things.  Maybe we just need to put on our grubby clothes, pull out the cleaning supplies and start scrubbing!

19 Ponderisms

This was posted on my FB page by my cousin Steve; I laughed so hard I just had to share on my blog. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did this morning.  Time to do the “Happy Dance” because it is FRIDAY!
