Happy New Year. There's a feeling around here - a positive, benevolent feeling of optimism as we say goodbye to 2017. We survived. The world didn't end because you know who is President and now we can all breath a sigh of relief and start to move on with our lives and focus our energy on other things than politics, division and scorn and maybe start looking at something more fulfilling such as charity and volunteering or clearing out the clutter.
Happy New Year to one and to all. 2017 is done and 2018 is here. Wow. It was an amazing ride. The people, the places, the events that shaped our lives. Not just locally, but events from around the world both positive and benevolent, but also those times, places and people that were not as positive and benevolent as we would prefer them to be.
It's December. I'm already seeing people in panic mode and there is still over three weeks until Santa comes. I've got most of my shopping done and judging from the pile of stuff in Brian's closet I'm thinking he's pretty well done too.
That hot, humid weather I was looking forward to never really seemed to appear. Instead we had cold mornings and warm afternoons, a lot of rain and just like that, I'm back to work on Tuesday driving my school bus up and down the roads between Roseville and Ayr loaded with precious cargo.
As the cool winds blow in, it reminds us to start getting out the sweaters and jackets, and summer is coming to a close. We really enjoy all the sunshine we can, and have enjoyed outdoor walks and golf, every week.
