New Year’s Resolutions
I had such hopes for the first of year. I was for sure going to get back to blogging. I have truly missed it. I knew the only way I would get back to blogging by reading, commenting, and writing again would be if I made some changes to my daily schedule. I would have to stop settling in my chair with a cup of coffee, my iPad, and checking out Facebook, and my new time waster, Instagram. Honestly, I have wasted, yes wasted, way too much time with this kind of start to the day.
I read two newspapers before I get going, so by the time I even think of getting up out of that favorite chair to make my breakfast, the morning has been whittled away to nothing.
The night before on New Year’s Eve, we spent a wonderful night celebrating with my cousin and her husband at their beautiful home. They have a group of friends from high school days that they celebrate with, so we were happy they invited us to join them. I said we were the chaperones since these “kids” are half a decade younger. We had so much fun. The party was a great success. Our host cooked a marvelous meal. After eating, we watched the fireworks that were set off from the top of Pikes Peak, then we drank a bit of champaign, sang Auld Lang Syne, toasted each other and the new year, took a few more photos, and then headed home.
