snow...is it winter?

It finally happened. Winter arrived after a brief weekend of summer. Caine was visiting for an overnight and we all were in our t-shirts with the warm sun and balmy 70 degree weather. Next thing you know, we are getting a snow storm ! School was called on Friday with a 2 hour early release on Thursday, and Martin Luther King Day is Monday, so I had 4 days in a row ! Tuesday and Wednesday are teacher work days, and the kids return on Thursday. Tuesdays high will be in the low 20's. I may be a Yankee, but that is cold by anyones standards. We had a blast 4-wheeling with Caine. He brought his little battery operated wheeler and rode all day! I was hoping the battery would wear down, but no luck. My battery wore out before his.
For some reason unknown to me, I cannot attach my pictures anymore, so until I can figure this out, I am going pictureless! I'll come back when I can show you my photos..

A new year

One thing I want to do for myself in this new year of 2013 is write more often. It's one thing I always enjoyed doing, and something I seem to do less and less. Another thing I want to accomplish in this year is to learn to speak Spanish. I used to be fluent in French, but as with all things, if you don't use it you lose it.
Seems to me that is what happens with all things, both mental and physical.
As with all three of my brothers, I am reaping the benefits of getting older. Arthritis, joint replacements, forgetfulness,failing eyesight, forgetfulness...oh wait, did I say that already?
We have 5 aging cats who are also experiencing the benefits. One is forgetting where the cat box's are. I am not delighted with this.Here are some pictures associated with the old year.
















Family and friends ... my lifeblood...
I am hoping for another year rich with visits from my family and friends..Here's hoping for health for us all in this new year..A prayer for peace  and love and brotherhood for all in this new year..
happy new year, with love, Claudia
