Happy New Year.....

It's that time of year again......resolutions, diets, decluttering, etc.!  I've been giving this a lot of thought.  I have so many changes ahead of me that it sometimes makes me dizzy.  My goal is to take it one day at a time.  Today will be the day I take the rest of my Christmas decorations down and hopefully, get to the grocery store (I'm getting hungry).
This was on one of the blogs I read this morning and loved it.

It's been sort of a strange week for me.  In so many ways I feel such a relief and then there's also a sadness to be leaving something that's been such a huge part of my life for the last 8 years.  We closed Leola's.  There were multiple reasons but when it came right down to it it was just time.  There was little said about it but I still feel bad about not giving proper "thanks" to all those who worked beside us for all that time.  Kenda and Kristi had been with us since the beginning and Brenda came shortly thereafter.  We were a good group for a long time and I'll miss all of them.  Not certain what I will do now but, first and foremost, will be looking for a new house.

How about this one?

I had a wonderful Christmas.  Kind of low-key but that's the way I like it.  I realized several years ago that it was the season and the meaning of the day that brought the true joy.....not necessarily the actual day.  Takes a lot of pressure off and makes it so much more enjoyable.  Christmas brunch.....

Stella got a selfie stick for Christmas so Zoe put my big iphone in it.  Not the greatest but we still have a record.

I couldn't let the season go by without posting a few photos from my sister, Judy's, beautiful home.  She does such a wonderful job of both decorating and sharing it during the holidays.  She has a large family and many friends and she loves to entertain..... 

Well, guess I'd better get serious about this day.  Hoping that all who read this know that I am wishing all of us a wonderful 2016.  With everything going on in this crazy world today it will truly be a difficult thing but I sincerely pray that God will see us through this terrible period and help us to find PEACE.

Well now, that is a big change. You were always preparing for one Open House after another it seemed. 2016 is your year to slow down and find a new direction. Wishing you all the best!
