NEW YEARS EVE

By Thursday, December 31, 2015 34 Permalink

Oh My Doodle, it’s New Years Eve #again! It can’t be! I still have things on my “to-do” list for 2015 that I haven’t “done” yet #doggoneit

Now what do I do? Roll them over into January? #likeminutes

A New Year forces people to think about resolutions. I’m guilty of having a few myself, but there’s no reason to bore you with them.

Well maybe one.

I would like to give you more of what you seem to like when you tune in to find out what we’re up to each week. So I took a look at my posts from 2015.

Very interesting –  some of your fav’s were some of mine too! #collarusflattered 

Here’s our most viewed posts per month.

      Nicole, with the loss of my mom right out the gate in 2015 I can so honestly relate. I am praying for a new year where all my tears will be those shed from happiness. I wish the same for you. Happy New Year my friend.

      Amen to that Deirdre – Here’s to 2016. I have so much in my head that I’d like to accomplish, if I get a third of it done I will be impressed with my own self! LOL Happy New Year my friend.

    Wait, we have to finish everything on our to do list for 2015? I thought we could just wipe the slate clean.

    • Cathy Bennett
      December 31, 2015

      So I wish Pamela – so I wish. I think the original concept was to complete what was on our list 12 months ago before today came. Hell – I can’t even remember my list let alone put my hands on it. LOL Happy New Year my friend.

    Oops, almost forgot. The picture of your mom in your top photo slider is one of the best ever. It is so precious.

      December 31, 2015

      Thanks, although I must tell you- that isn’t my Mom. It was one of her friends from the assisted living facility where she lived. She too took a liking to Harley so she (among others) were always on our list to visit when we went to see my mom.
