Tuesday, 1 January 2013


The first day of Twentythirteen has dawned sunny and cold here in Southern Ontario. There are a few ice particles suspended in the air, and a light breeze is stirring the branches of the trees outside my window. 
My morning coffee tastes so good.
Now's the time to make a list of those pesky New Year Resolutions.... you know the ones. The good things we are going to do to improve our lives and the lives of those around us. Lose weight. Stop smoking. Eat healthy. Help others. Save money. Those actions that we follow faithfully for a few days, weeks, sometimes even months.... and then we revert back to our previous lives! 

That's why I'm not making any resolutions today.... well, none that I'm letting on about anyway.  But I'm looking forward to 2013. Lots to look forward to. Spending time with my four lovely grandchildren and their mums and dads. Travel. Perhaps another holiday with cousins? New friends. New activities. New discoveries.

I do agree with you about resolutions. I think of some in my head...I hope you have a wonderful new year. I know you enjoy those babies.

I just came back from spending time with my children in Virginia, and I did enjoy so much spending time with Ella, listening to her read and sing, and watching her write stories...just so delightful.

Wise woman you are not to make resolutions!
Instead I choose a word, and try and live up to it. It is a process that hopefully, once it becomes habit, also becomes effortless.
Here's to new discoveries in 2013!

Sounds Good, my dear...!
I stopped making resolutions, YEARS Ago...I realized it was a wonderful idea, but...they never lasted.
I was looking at your grandchildrens prigress---I can hardly believe all of them are growing up soooo fast. Before you know it--your First Born will be 5 years old....!!! How did the time go by so quickly?

Darn cold here on the 2nd. I don't think I poked my head out on the 1st. Happy New Year. I see you had a POTW. Congrats.

Happy New Year to you too.
I'm not fond of resolutions because I break them too soon.
I would rather look forward to the newness of 2013 and try to embrace it with every thing I have.
Loving on my Grandkids and my sons and their wives is at the top of the list and of course loving my Hubby too.
