I Wish You

 
When you're lonely, I wish you Love
When you're down, I wish you Joy
When you're troubled, I wish you Peace
When things seem empty, I wish you Hope
Have a Happy New Year!

The new year is a good opportunity for new beginnings, whether it be to have a more healthy lifestyle, to become more mindful or to enjoy being retired! I plan to incorporate all of these beginnings into my life.

One of the New Years Resignations from BPHope magazine that I will try harder to follow:
I can't do everything I used to do. What I can do, I can't always do as well or as easily as I once did. But what I can do, when I feel up to it, I do pretty well, and thats good enough.
table is set

Today's word of the day is meld (MELD verb - merge, blend). Tonight will be a melding of friends from different worlds, work, family and horsey. We will have good food and good conversations, despite or maybe because of, our different backgrounds. We will have a long pleasant dinner to usher out the old year and welcome in the new. We'll start with appetizers, have a first course, wait a while, then have our main course. Dessert with bubbles will be just in time for the final countdown.

My idle pleasure today? Taking a break from the preparations to curl up on the loveseat with a freshly baked gingerbread cookie. It was still a bit warm from the oven, crispy on the outside with a soft, slightly chewy center. Delish!

Carm busy with the prep
