And the New Year Begins

Gosh, the New Year has begun and I have much to say, but no computer to say it on. Fortunately though, despite the difficulties I have using this tablet, it does allow me to remain in contact.  We had a very quiet New Year Eve. We ordered a dinner of rotisserie chicken and yucca cooked with vinegar and red onion.  That has been a tradition now for about 15 years.  Later we watched the ball drop  and shortly thereafter decided to call it a night. How different things are when one   becomes an elder. My partying days are long past.

The old man next door to me passed away  yesterday. He has lived in this building for most of the adult life. I only spoke with him a few times, but I found him to be a kindly and gentle little man. He is now reunited with his wife. May he rest in peace.

We have a snow storm coming tomorrow... or should I say tonight. Looks like I will be home bound for a couple days. Without my computer I am feeling lost, but I have been doing tons of reading. I do miss my computer games as well. I play a couple Garden games, and I know by the time I get back, they will be overrun with trees and rocks.

I do hope that the holidays went well for all of you. Personally, they pass so quickly it was like they weren't even there. Life sure does pick up speed the older you get.

Well, guess that's it for the day. It  took two devices for me to get this far,  and I am not even going to mention how much time.  I would love to hear about your holidays.


  1. oh, I hope you can get a fix for your computer soon. Our holidays were quiet and lovely. We spent some time with the neighbors and talking on the phone and skype with relatives that live far away. We are preparing for the storm as well. I will be going out to buy supplies soon. Keep warm and safe Mary!

  2. Good morning dear friend.....glad you holidays went well. Ours was quite here as well....and as far as New Year's goes...we can't even stay awake long enough to watch the ball fall. LOL LOL

    Have a safe warm day.



  3. It sounds like you had a lovely NYE. I hope that you are able to get your computer fixed soon. Enjoy the snow and stay warm. If you want you can send some of that snow down south. We haven't had a good snow here yet, and I'm anxiously awaiting one. :-)

  4. Hi Mary, sorry about your computer woes but at least you have the tablet, right? A bit more work but it can get you here :0) Our holiday also went by quickly. Stayed home and enjoyed each other's companies. Getting ready tor that storm. Not looking forward to it but it is what it is. Happy New Year!

  5. You hit the nail on the head, "life does speed up as you get older." ISYN!
