Hard to believe it is now 2013. Let us hope that 2013 is a better year with fewer deaths, less fighting and progress toward peace on earth. Hopefully by then we will have overcome the so-called fiscal cliff.
Actually went back to work Saturday; it felt good but I got plenty tired and was ready to go before it was time. We were very busy with folks trying to avoid the snow. Of course, it started snowing long before we left and then Sunday there was no snow falling just blowing like a bandit. I stayed home and kept the stove going, did laundry, and cooked supper.
Does it seem to all of you that New Year’s Eve isn’t celebrated as it used to be. We used to get together and eat supper and maybe even go out for the evening. Just a few years ago there were big celebrations in many towns, including Portland and Bethel. Now just some drinking parties at various bars and elsewhere. Guess we need to organize some new alternative evenings.
A Happy Birthday goes out to Robin Hart and my sister Cindy. Have a great day ladies.
