Happy New Year

As I see 2020 gone and a New Year here – I’m reminded of how very much I have to be thankful for.

  • I’m thankful to ‘still’ have friends and family who haven’t gotten, or have survived Covid.
  • I’m thankful I live in Alabama!
  • I’m thankful for friends who have ‘taken care of me’ with groceries, etc. during the Pandemic.
  • I’m thankful I have the companionship of my little furbabies, Koda, Boots & Emma Grace.  As I type, Koda is next to me, Emma Grace is in her chair across the end table from me and Boots is in his chair facing me. They do a lot of sleeping – almost always close to me – which I love and reminds me that “I AM loved”.

2020 has been a bear!  Now, I could almost always be a hermit – up to a point.  I drove to town today to pick up a prescription.  Parked at the pharmacy and called them.  Girl in mask came out with my meds, took my cc and went back in, came back to return my card.  Then I went to the drive thru to pick up some BBQ.  Masked lady took my card and gave me food in a bag.  I came home.  Never got out of the car.

I was never much of shopper, but I enjoyed browsing in the low priced stores.  We’ve got a new ‘Dollar Tree’ and ‘Burkes Outlet’ in the little strip mall just across the lake and they’re building a new ‘Dollar General’ right at the foot of the mountain.  Sadly, I’m not comfortable going into any of those.  Will 2021 change that – I pray it does.

Happy New Year Iris. I do think that it will get better as more and more people get the vaccine and then most people won’t worry as much. Because while I can hermit too…there is time I need some social activity. And the pets help but it’s still not the same.


Happy New Year, Iris! Thank you for sharing your lovely blog with us. May 2021 bring only good things!
