December 28

Started taking down my Christmas decorations today.  I love our decorations, the way they make the house look magical...I really hate taking them down.  I will so miss the glow from the Christmas tree lights and the Santas on the mantle standing guard.  But by the end of the weekend, all will be back to normal and we will welcome the New Year.  Normally I leave everything up until New Years, but I go back to work Monday. 

Yesterday we got around 6 inches of rain, and it was almost balmy today.  Cooler tomorrow, then more rain and then really cold air comes back.  The weather certainly does a dance here in Alabama.

I have spent a great deal of time the past few weeks thinking about 2019 and the things that I want to accomplish.  2018 was a really productive year in many ways, but there were some spaces that were left empty.  Sometimes life just throws curves.  I know that there are some who live their lives with a single driven purpose, who dance their dance regardless and often I wish I did that. 

So, here we are, the last few days of December, the last few days of 2018.  Enjoy your weekend, be kind to those around you, don't forget to laugh out loud.  All the transformations that took place in our lives in 2018 added to our journey, I hope those transformations that greet us in 2019 give hope, kindness and joy to all.


  1. Looking forward as always for the coming New Year, but try to live in the moment, the past year is gone, and we don't know what will come tomorrow.

  2. I think my biggest accomplishment in 2018 was my retirement. I'm not sure if it was a good thing but since I won't be getting a salary but money isn't everything.
    Now I have to find a way to stay fit while I'm getting old.

    Wishing you a great weekend.
    Hugs, Julia
