Goodbye 2017 - Hello 2018
I can hardly believe another year has almost been tossed to the trash heap. Last year, I was trepidatious about what 2017 would bring with 45 in Washington. Now I know and it's worse that I imagined. He has decimated so many of the programs that were in place for the benefit of all and I'm quite sure he's not finished yet.
Enough of that. How was your Christmas? Mine was great. As I mentioned we traveled to California to spend with our daughter and family. We had so much fun and Ray got his water fix. The visit was way too short, but then they always are.
We received a big surprise when we returned home. My brother called and asked if we wanted company for New Year's. Needless to say we're both thrilled and can't wait for Saturday. We have so much fun together and it will be good to show him our neck of the woods. Don't know how long he's staying but as I've said above, it won't be long enough.
The weather here is beautiful. While a lot of the country is freezing their you know what off, we are running about 10 to 15 degrees above normal. It makes sweltering through those 110 degree days of summer worth it. Speaking of summer, Ray noticed that it's staying light a little longer now - not much, but a minute of day adds up and by the end of January it will be a whole 30 minutes at night.
I'll find some time to find a story for Monday because I know I won't have time to pen one between now and then. I'm going to make a New Year's resolution to try and write more frequently in the new year. Are you planning on making any resolutions?
Guess that's it for me. Hope you stay warm and safe. See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.
