It has been awhile since I have been here to blog...can't believe it is already the 24th of January either! Time is passing so fast! I am hoping you haven't had a lot of really bad weather where you are. We have had more than usual cold, cold, cold days with lots of high winds that cuts like a knife, but we have been rather dry too! We normally have a day or two of cold then a warm up, then cold a couple of days and back to a warm up all winter, but this year the cold, gray, windy days come and stayed about 6 days before a warm up of a day then another attack of cold. This past Wednesday evening and all day Thursday brought us some very much needed soaking rain...it was very nice (except I had my car washed on Tuesday...LOL!).
I started a job on Monday the 19th....just a fill in receptionist answering phones and scheduling appointments...for my CPA's office for 3 months (minus the days I need off for my cataract surgeries) for some extra cash and to help them out. I am enjoying it for the most part, but sure was hard this week getting up and getting dressed and out the door on a schedule....LOL! Being retired and going at your own pace can make you lazy...ROFL! My fur babies had a rough time adjusting to me being gone each day too!
I slept in a bit this morning and then decided to read and clear out e-mails and of course I had to make a few pages to share here. I just sent my blog for 2014 to be printed...so got to make sure I have some posts to start on my 2014 book. If you have never had your blog printed, you should try one...it is a terrific way to journal your memories to leave behind...I love looking back through mine and remembering the scrapped pages and events from 2008 until now. I also have had many nice comments from friends that have looked through them. Well, here's what I've been doing while washing clothes today!
