A wish for the season to one and all

We’re coming to the happiest time of the year and… 

I want to wish all of my readers, far and near, a very happy holiday. However you celebrate, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy Kwanzaa may this year be the best.

               

No matter how you celebrate this time of the year, I hope your holiday is filled with joy and happiness.

And as we ring out the old and in the new year…

I wish a better and prosperous 2019 for us all.

Happy New Year!

See Y’all on the flip side of the New Year!

Please accept my apology and my best wishes

My apology for disappearing over the holidays.

I’m sorry my blog went dark for a few days.

The plague came to my house. Plague – flu, one in the same as far as I’m concerned.

Hubby and I were both hit hard. First time in years we’ve caught the flu, and the first time I can ever remember getting it at the same time. YUCK! 

And yes, if you are wondering, we did get the flu shot.

Reading emails, writing on my blog or writing on my novel were impossible. I couldn’t focus to even read a book. Needless to say, I achieved zero of my holiday goals. Sigh…

Although not a hundred percent, I am feeling a bit more human today, and ready to get back into the groove.

Now that you’ve accepted my mea culpa let’s talk about 2018.

I’m not much of a resolution setting person but I did want to set a few goals. Three seems manageable. Don’t you think?

Three goals for 2018.

  • Read more

Every time I sit down at the computer, I learn something new. And, if you stay with me through 2018, I’ll do my best to share every tidbit I discover about writing and blogging.

What are your goals for 2018?

Are some of 2017 goals carrying over into the New Year?

From my house to yours, Wishing you a happy and successful 2018!

A big thank you and Happy Holidays to my readers

Without you my year would’ve been very boring.

This year will be very special for our family. It will be the first time in over 3 years that my kids and grandkids will be in the same country for Christmas. To say I’m excited is an understatement!

But no matter the greeting, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Happy St. Lucia Day, Happy Ramadan or Eid, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Omisoka, or even a Joyous Yule Day, my wish is that  you will have a safe and wonderful month of December.

May we have peace on earth, understanding and compassion for our fellow humans. How to say Merry Christmas around the world. 

Thank you so much for making my year a great year!

happy holidays

Where does all the time go?

We’re entering the final days of 2014 —
how did you do on your New Year’s resolutions these past 11.75 months?
Is there any leftover item to be carried over to 2015?

Time and Memory Slips Away

Oh my! Sometimes I’ve trouble remembering what I promised to do last week much less eleven months ago. Pushing back the cobwebs I seem to remember wanting to:
  1. Lose weight, I gained weight,
  2. Submit more stories than the previous year, I submitted less,
  3. Read more, oh crap where did the year go…
  4. Blog more, oops
  5. Spend more time with friends and family, everybody is so damn busy – me included

Hey, I just remembered something!

I didn’t write any of these down so they don’t count.

Whew, what a relief!

Okay, starting over, this year I resolve to:

Never mind, don’t think I’ll write down my thoughts for 2015 either.

Happy Holidays y’all.
