Happy New Year to you all. My year is ending sadly as my brother passed away two days after Christmas. I (and my sons and family) will go to his services when they are ready there. Over the mountains to SC so I hope there is no snow. Waiting to hear from my niece. Love my brother very much. Both brothers are now gone. My immediate family via my mother and dad are all passed on now. One does feel alone. Of course I have my own family but my brothers and parents are gone.
It is cold cold cold. Will be the single digits in temps during the week, and not up to freezing for the high. I have stopped my outdoor walks the day after Christmas as it is too brutally cold especially with the breeze blowing. After this next week perhaps the temps will moderate somewhat.
We had a great Christmas. Christmas eve we went for dinner and gift exchange at my married sons home with his wife and child. We had a wonderful time and tried not to eat into a comatose state! Christmas day, just my other two sons and me were here at the house and we exchanged our gifts one with the other and went out to a good hotel for Christmas brunch. Beautiful day...sunny and cold.
