I have some contenders for the new 2018, and if I choose one, I will definitely fill you in. I like the practice, but of all my words through the years, I remember on the year I chose "sparkle." I do like that one.
I can't believe how very cold today is. Our gentle deception weather disappeared overnight. My dear friend's water pipes are frozen. Everyone is doing what they can to stay cozy.... Hot tea is usually on my list.
The Southern Sun has been peeking through unexpected angles of the east and west windows. It is just now winter, and I find it hard to apologize to one and all that I like it. I love it! Yes, I do get to stay inside. However, I was out in winter's finest array of weather when I taught. I just loved it then, too. Be safe. I realize the roads are treacherous.
Do you ever get that anxious feeling in the pit of night? Don't you hate that? I know it is anxiety creeping in to play around with the mind and torture the peace. I often get huge energy bursts right through the night (when I really can't see myself actually doing much). I tell myself I will accomplish so much tomorrow... but thank goodness, the feeling has passed by the morning's light.
That poor, blessed little woodpecker. I am so glad he is fake. I feel sorry for him anyway with his perpetually licked and swatted feathers and his little chirpy sound. He doesn't have a chance.
