Out with the old...

2016 overall hasn't been a bad year. This was my first full year at home. We're adjusting to one income. We enjoyed more time together. We went camping - first time in many, many years - and got to see things we hadn't before. We visited lighthouses and state parks. I got to spend more precious time with my Mum.

We 'discovered' wonderful places close to home like the wonderful Nature Preserve seen above (photo from today's walk). People thought I'd get bored staying at home. I still haven't accomplished half of what I set out to do. 

There are so many things that I would like to do in the year ahead. I have a sort-of list. I'll post more tomorrow. The New Year will bring a really big change - Wednesday morning (about 2am!) daughter and I will be setting off for her new home. It will be a new state, a new home and a new job for her. More adventures. I have been thinking about a word for the new year. Seems it is the 'thing' people seem to do. I hate to narrow it down to one word, but I think 'Adventure' fits my outlook for the year ahead.


  1. "Adventure" is a great word for the new year, I think. It sounds like you had a good year in 2016. May 2017 be even better and filled with adventure! Happy New Year to you, your daughter and entire family!

  2. I love the word Adventure I consider life a wonderful adventure, so here's wishing that you have a year full of wonderful adventures. Happy New Year.

    1. First adventure coming up! I am looking forward to this year and the adventures it brings
