Another New Year

Grab each day and enjoy it to the max
ever notice how speedily the days pass
the week starts out slow then suddenly
it's friday and the weekend again
then we start over on the mad rush
called life in the fast track, we need to slow
down once in a while before we reach
our destination which could be at any
moment unknown to us or to others

Excellent poetic advice! Why do we always do everything at near warp-speed?!

The image of a WAVE comes to mind. Now we have a clean slate.

Cheers and well wishes. I'm visiting from Sandy Carlson's today.

A friend of my mother's used to say, 'It's Monday, that week's almost gone!' As a child, I used think it was so funny for her to say that, but it's not so funny as true!!

Happiest New Year to you and yours!

The week between Christmas and the opening of the New Year has always been a time to unwind in our family. Everything moves at a slower pace for us between December 26th and January 2. I don't know why that is. I guess it's a little bit unusual.. but, it's just the way it's always been. It'sd nice after the bustle of Christmas preparations.

We don't do the after Christmas shopping schtick unless we just feel like meandering up and down the aisles looking to see if anything calls our name. We don't do the BIG New Years Eve celebration. Ocassionally we've had a couple of friends over... or we've gone to a friends home with a few other couples. We';ve gone to a church dance once or twice (my hubby is really fun to dance with) Other than that, we just go outside at midnight and throw some fresh bird seed in the feeder. That's about it.

A Death In The Blogger World

A blogger friend lost her husband suddenly last Sunday night. I thought it would be nice to go and leave a message for her on her blog...You may know her as 'mommanator' at grannies ramblings

I have certainly slowed down this week, since getting back from Colorado. I have been occupied with learning new technology, reading an engrossing novel, organizing a new calendar, very little cooking, and coping with the effects of a germ I got while traveling. I have left the house to grocery shop, do one gift exchange and pick up some items we need and didn't get, and out for pizza once. That's it. I'm happy to be home.

Actually... I think I've slowed down a whole lot since coming to Hawaii. Hmmm... then again, I'm about ready to fly back to Illinois so our lives will probably pick up speed again.
