After two weeks, the holidays are over. Joe goes back to work tomorrow. Emily starts class. I need to change the message on the voicemail that says we’re closed, and start showing up more often.
We are having cold winter weather. It is unlikely to get above freezing for the next few days, the weather folk say. At least the sun is shining. I can put up with a lot if the sun is shining.
Besides writing here every few days, my other resolution is to read more. I spend way too much time fooling around on Facebook. I am going to cut back on that to free up at least 30 minutes of time to read (which you know will be more, once I start). My aunt recommended Louise Penny as one of her favorite authors, so I am starting there. I have read all the book club books up through February, so the March book will need to be next on my list.
I have a friend who works for Princess Cruises. Part of her compensation package is a free cruise every year. She signed up for a ten day Caribbean cruise in October and November, and her husband didn’t have enough vacation, so she invited me. We had a wonderful time, and I read so many books! It really reminded me that I love to read, and I don’t do it enough. Hence the resolution.
