New Year, New Life

Happy New Year!

We have definitely settled in here, become involved in the community and made sooo many new friends.

Unfortunately, we lost our closest friend because she had to leave her husband on Boxing Day. After they spent a fun and fabulous evening here at our place, things went south on the walk home and after returning here for the night, the police escorted her home to get her belongings and she has left town. This, of course, is the super short version.

All in all we had a wonderful Christmas and we feel very welcomed in our new community.

Like pretty much everyone else we will be going on a diet in the New Year. I intend to lose 30 pounds (I'll be happy with 20, but.... that last 5 lbs.... so 30! ) Covid has done one hell of a job on our waist lines. We will be doing the Banting diet (carb free).

Talk will soon begin on how we want to garden this year, greenhouse, raised bed and in ground options are available and need to be sussed out.

I swear I intend to write more often, its just been so damn busy with all the events in town.

We'll talk again next year, we hope you finish this one out on a high note! xxx

Keep on keeping on

I have renewed the blog.

I will be continuing to post.

I have a tomatoe and a pepper plant growing, local activities about town have been many and we have been quite involved. I was helping a new friend (teacher) today with assembly of backdrops for the Christmas assembly at the local school.

Robbie turned 13 on Dec 1st ( 91 in human years).

The Christmas tree has been put up and lights went up on the outside of the house.

Winter has officially set in, it was damn cold today but warming up tomorrow ( so they say).
