Out With the Old and In With the New!!

Greetings to my fellow blogging buddies. Wow, I can hardly believe that another year is coming to an end. My momma always used to tell me "stop wishing your life away" and that "the older you get, the faster time goes". I have to admit that at the time, I thought she was crazy; that just had to be one of the most silly things that I had ever heard. But, you know what?? The older I get, the more I realize just how smart my momma was. Darned if she wasn't right! Yeah, I know, it just doesn't make a lick of sense - but it is so true - so very true. Because the older I get, the faster time does go, that's a fact jack!!

I haven't been around much lately, with all the snow and ice we've had and not being able to make it in to work for several days and now with year-end details at work and well, just life. I feel like I've been gone for a very long time. And, I miss it. I miss writing down my thoughts on this little screen and reading all those thoughts of so many other people out there. I feel so much better when I write. I never thought that I would be saying that, because until the last couple of years, I've never been much of a writer, but I am so addicted to it now. I find it oddly therapeutic and refreshing and, yes even liberating in a way. I've found that maybe, just maybe, I'm not so very different after all. I have similar thoughts and worries and notions as a whole lot of other folks in this world. And, I find that comforting too. You all out there have come to mean a whole lot to me. I feel connected in a way that I never thought that I would.

Amazing isn't it? You just never know what's going to happen next...and that's actually quite exciting. Gives us all a whole lot to look forward to. You never know what might be just around the corner or coming up on the next horizon. Maybe you'll do something that you've always wanted to do, or go someplace you've never been before, or meet that special "someone" that you've been longing to meet. Ya never know, just keep on fighting the good fight and putting one foot in front of the other and you just might be surprised where all those steps lead you. It sounds fun to me...wanna come along? I'd love the company.

Well...come on, let's get started! When we all wake up tomorrow morning, it's gonna be a brand new day in a brand new year and change is definitely a'comin...don't you just feel it in your bones?? I know that I do. I just hope that I'm ready. Oh well, ready or not, here we go!!!

Happy New Year!!!!

Many blessings from Cingspots

This is my sweet boy Harley. I was never able to get a good picture of him doing it, but he kept sticking his face deep in the snow up to his eyeballs. He does the same thing in creeks or lakes and comes up with a mouthful of sludge. Silly boy...oh, and he snorkels in the snow - anything new or different, he snorkels at it. Like mother, like son. He sure is looking fuzzy. and fat.
Come to think of it, I'm looking a little fuzzy and fat too; hmmm, must be something in our water. You think?
That's my story. Yep, and I'm stickin' to it.

Harley has a handsome head and wonderful markings. What a silly boy with the snorkeling. lol!

Baby Doll looks like a black and white yak right now. I miss burrowing my hands into her thick fur.
I suppose being bed-bound and not able to put weight on my knee has benefits. I don't have to stand on scale to see if I drank too much wacky water...we must have the same kind down here, too.
Strange, eh?

Happy New Year, my friend. I'm glad we connected in 2008. I look forward to getting to know you better in 2009....
