Looking Back...


Christmas is over...
Heck, 2016 is over!  How did THAT happen so fast?
So as I sit here in that week that lies between what was
and what is... I look back as well as looking forward.
And I figure I had a so-so year. 
So many "home projects" I never got to...
...but so many I DID get to!
Health issues arose I never had before...
...but medicines controlled it, and I've only slowed a little.
I spent 3 days in a hospital for the first time ever...
...but I still didn't spend any time in jail for anything.
Granddaughter Katy got married here at our house...
.... but the muscle soreness from all the work beforehand only lasted 2 days.
Gardening was a "BUST" due to the drought...
...but time away allowed me to work on my barn/shop.
I didn't really do any traveling to exotic places...
...but we DID get 3 days alone in the mountains!
Had to put up with a years worth of political junk...
...which is rapidly winding down, thank goodness!
So yeah, 2016 was the pits in some ways...
but it was great in other ways!
Thank you God for all of it!

The Holiday Season

Thanksgiving!  I ate too much!!
Church group's Christmas party this weekend.  I ate too much!
Attended a "wine tasting" party too.  I ate too much!
Hmmm.... starting to see a pattern....
And now we wait for the Christmas celebrations!
 

THIS Sunday, covered dish luncheon at church...
NEXT Sunday, my family gathers here at our home to eat...
The NEXT Sunday is Christmas... 
Ohhhhh.... I'm in trouble.
