It is cold out there!
January is a time for new starts and though I don't really make serious resolutions, I am going to start writing more than just my group memes that I participate in just to keep my blog alive. I have found a few writing spots that I am going to join this year. This is one, Carole Knits I found in my bloggy friend Kwizgiver's posts. I have admired her posts about books and the memes we share, for many years now. And Carole does beautiful photography, so I thought I would try to add this as a regular thing.
I am a care giver for Mr BC so I am home quite a bit. In the last year my time has revolved around him. Last year he was so very ill and has improved so much that this year, that I want to carve out some time for myself as well.
I also thought.....not a resolution....that I might join the senior group at the YMCA near by.....maybe, even get Mr BC out. New Starts.
January also brings not only the frigid weather, but is the harbinger of all things income tax. It forces the inevitable procrastination of getting them done. I dislike all the proud posts in February....."I had my taxes done and the refund is on the way." I do my own, because it is no one's business but my own! More about that April 15th.
January is also the month where depression can raise its ugly head, if we have to stay in the house too much. The one good thing about retirement is you don't have to get up and go to work every day. The one bad thing about retirement is you don't have to get up and get out every day. It is so easy to give into that especially, if the weather is bad. Remember, I am a California girl, not use to weather. I am going to get out more this winter. And let the light in when I can.
