Life goes On

                                                

Here it is, almost the middle of January,  and once again I am slow to post updates.  Truth is we don't do much of anything!  Our life is quiet as we both pursue our passions.  

I make cards, almost everyday I work on them.  As I wake in the morning I'm thinking about the project I'm working on and possibly the next.  I seem to always have ideas about what card to make next.  I get inspired by other crafters and that starts the process of creating.  Each month my groups on Facebook post challenges and I try to do each one!

Jim reads a lot.  He also is walking more and more each day.  He too gets challenged by his watch.  Or Sonsearae.  The watches record everything from heart beats to steps.  Even standing!

Weekly we see Sonsearae and Chris.  Last Sunday it was snacks and football.  We don't get to see Christy and Rik as often as I'd like.  

Speaking of football, are you into the playoffs?  Which team is your favorite.  We're cheering for the Chiefs!  Saints didn't have a very good year year and I think we need a new head coach.

Our weather has been typical for this time of year.  Sometimes foggy mornings, sometimes temperatures in the upper 30's at night.  During the days the temperature can be anywhere from upper 50's to mid 70's.  So far we have been lucky and not caught a cold!

History

                                                

                                 No, it's not a lesson... But this year is history.  Think back on this past year and you'll see, it's all part of your history.  What were your highlights?  We spent more time with family.  Birthdays, dinners out, dinners in and football.  We went to Disney World..twice!  Only two lowlights for us, my bout with Covid (Jim we assume had it, just not as bad) and finding out we'll have to move from this campground.  I really hate moving...

So how was your year?  We have a place to call our own, food to eat and a loving family.  What more do we need?

Woke up to rain that started during the night.  Fog was prevalent, then clouds most of the day.  We both had a nap.  Seems I'm napping more often.  Sometimes it's just because I get up so dadgum early.  Other times I guess it's my age.
