The year’s wearin’ tae the wane*

We had a wonderful, riotous Christmas full of joy and feline antics.

Can you spot the kitty?

Can you spot the kitty?

But now the festivities are over and everyone has gone away again (boo hoo!)

It’s time to bid adieu to 2016 as well. The year veered wildly between farce and tragedy, but there were plenty of bright spots, too. However, I’m going to leave the recaps to you. It’s time to look forward. Rather than make a long list of resolutions I won’t keep, I’ve decided to concentrate on just one thing — establishing my calm. We’re talking a certain level of contented detachment, not  mindless bliss. My recipe for success is simple:

Take gentle exercise and refreshment as needed.


That’s it! I feel better already, don’t you?

From all of us, to all of you — may 2017 bring you peace and joy!!!


Happy New Year!
