While a few of my immediate family and close friends may
have contacted COVID-19, no one close to me was hospitalized. I don’t think anyone of us can say we didn’t
know of someone who perished from the virus, but at least in my experience, no
one close (knock wood). I do believe the
virus is real and I do believe that the vaccine has reduced the number of those
infected. I just can’t get behind the
politics of it all. I’ll save that for
another rant, should I have the notion.
I have plans with a friend of 40 years to go on a trip together. My sister, who lives a couple hours away, also retired and we have made a conscious decision to meet monthly for lunch or dinner. I’ll have more time to help my son work on his house remodel. And I already have ride trips on the book; one most notable is 2 weeks on the road with a horse – most likely Punch. I’ll come home for a break, repack, choose another horse and off for another week. Pray these dreams come true.
My office is full right now with work equipment. When I start my new part-time job, I am moving my work equipment to another room in the house and reclaiming my office at home. I’ve ordered a new home computer and found some beautiful shelving units on marketplace. I want to add a crafting space, too. I’ll then start including pictures with this blog. I still take a lot of photos, just don’t share them much beyond Facebook.
There are good times to come.
