Hello, my friends and welcome to 2022. Little Buddy and I have been busy on my few days off during winter break and the weekends, going to lots of parks and riding his bike. It is gorgeous here, please don't hate me as it will be horrible here just as it is getting beautiful where you live.
Today we went to the park for the playground and went for a walk on the boardwalk of Lake Tarpon and walked far enough we made it to the five-story lookout tower. Little Buddy didn't even hesitate, up he went, step after step until we made it to the very top. At the top we were above most of the trees with just a few pine trees still hovering above us. It was so beautiful outside; I wish you could have all been there to enjoy it with us. Here we are, selfies I never take, but we were happy and having such a wonderful time I wanted to capture the moment, even not showered and make-up free.
I have been knitting and buying yet even more yarn to really up my stash. I found out that my favorite yarn store will be closing, they are retiring to spend more time in their home in North Carolina. So of course, I have been buying more yarn for sweaters and now will go back to get some to make for baby blankets for the future. My stash is getting quite magnificent!
I know many of you pick a word for the new year. I have done this in the past to just forget about it after a month or two. This year I am picking a phrase, moving forward with grace. I am moving forward on many levels this year whether I want to or not. There will be decisions about new schooling opportunities for Little Buddy, selling our home and moving to a much smaller more manageable place. There are years of things to sort out here before that can happen and a new roof that must be on before we can put this house on the market. Many other changes are happening as well, but those are all in the future and no need to be discussed at this point. Right now, one little boy is my priority, making sure he is in the right place for his education and transitioning him to a new home, none of which will be easy. So, I am asking for grace in my life every day, to handle all of these major changes with grace, peace and ease, none of which I feel I have an abundance of.
I am still here, thank you Barbara for checking on us. I want to wish you all a wonderful 2022, certainly it has to be better than the last two years. Stay safe. Two family members of mine have had the latest version of Covid and they have been very ill. Stay smart and safe.
