Good Morning All!
Happy New Year and Goodbye to 2021. This year is ending on a heavy note for moi. Vera and Kabir (my neice and her husband) and 3 children had to evacuate from their home in Broomfield, CO yesterday. They went to her Mom's (my brother's ex wife) and are hopefully ok. Not sure about their home. Phil's other 2 children are further north and so far safe. Phil & Lynnette had loaded up their camper last night and were ready to evacuate if needed. I think they are ok - waiting to hear from Phil this a.m. as to how and where they are. What a sad way for the year to end.
I woke up late today (almost 8 a.m.!!) (was awake during the night...worried about the CO fires), so am getting a bit of a late start to my day. Yesterday I went back to the canal trail and walked. It almost felt muggy out it was so mild (low 50's). Here are some things I saw:
There were more people out and about with the milder temperature, but it still was not very crowded. So far it is looking like another grey day here. Hopefully I can get out and go for a walk somewhere. Perhaps I will try the River Trail (in Valley Forge, along the Schuylkill River) this time.
Yesterday around 4:00 Mabel ran outside! We are careful opening the door, and I had just opened it a bit to throw something into the recycling tub when whoosh she was out in a flash! She explored a bit and I just let her be. Fletch was watching and finally went out to be sure she didn't run into the street or anything. She ended up circling the house a few times and then came in the front door!
So who has plans for tonight? We are having crab cakes, biscuits (home-made at F's request) and a salad for dinner. And a bit of Prosecco. I don't always stay up till midnight, but we will see how it goes tonight. Tomorrow I will cook some black eyed peas for luck. No real plans, but that is fine with me.
Thank you all for visiting and commenting here throughout the year. I've enjoyed sharing a bit of my life with you and getting to know you all a bit better. Cheers to 2022 and all the best wishes for a healthy and joyful year ahead!
