Ack this is the year I will be 70 if I live that long...who woulda thunk it? I never thought I would live past the age of 50. When I changed the age on my yearly calendar from 69 to 70 I winced, rolled my eyes and sighed.
I usually have a one word intention for the entire year...not a resolution. Some of the former words were kindness, exercise, explore, ongoing, time, relax and one year it was laugh, smile,hug and dance four words that I could use right at midnight and be done for the whole year.
I had lots of different words in mind this year...safe is the word I chose. I want to feel safe going out in the big bad covid world sometime this year. Safe to hug my family, gather safely with those I love. Safely hug and kiss those beautiful Great Grandbabies. Safe to pick out my own fruit at the grocery store, safe to wander the yarn and thrift shops, safe to go out to dinner with friends.
If I cannot enjoy those activities then I choose to be safe at home for as long as it takes.
Some good news:
I got an email saying what the electrical bill was...it was so low I figured it was wrong...so I went online to check things out.
There was a note on our electrical bill. "2020 was a great year for Itasca Mantrap Coop Electrical Association. We know others did not have such a great year and we understand the hardship many faced amidst Covid-19. This month you will see a credit on your bill. This is the Co-op's way to give back to membership after a tough year."
How nice is that! There was an $85 credit on our account! A good way to start off the year!
We finally finished the puzzle. It is missing a piece...we are hopeful that we will find it someplace in the house...my theory is that Dracula ( the robotic vacume) spun it off into some corner...and the piece is waiting to be discovered.
Happy New Year!
We had a safe New Years Eve...we stayed at home.
