2020 Here We Are

December 2017 in French Hill, Castlebar, County Mayo – May the Road Rise Up to Meet You

Welcome back to everyone who may have been away during the holidays or who may have just taken a break from social media. I trust your holiday was just right for you. Low-key is a good adjective to describe mine. We went to the movies, church, socialized with friends, and spoke to family on the phone. I made my annual walnut-carrot cake with lemon cream cheese icing for a neighborhood gathering. I also made my pumpkin zucchini bread for me (it’s gluten free). And, oh yea, I had cataract surgery the day after Christmas.

Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? I don’t usually make too many because by the second week of January, I’ve broken them. But this year I did choose a word to represent what I aim to embrace in 2020:

JOY

So…I’m planning to smile more, to embrace each day, to see the blue sky, to hear the rain, to love all that is part of my life. How about you?

In the meanwhile, keep the love going.

Martha
