January Blues

One year ago today I lost my grandmother. She was 95 1/2 years old.

The day before, I lost a great talented, creative friend. He was 33.

Nine days later, I lost my grandfather. He was 97.

It was a difficult beginning to a difficult year. I lost 5 loved ones in 2013, including my 26 year old niece and the 26 year old son of an old friend.

Todays January blues are so much different than last year. It's blue sky and sunshine! I have a brighter outlook, a new job, great new friends and a new blog to share with all of you.

Watched Jurassic Park the other day. Love this movie! My favorite line is when Samuel L Jackson flips the electrical breaker back on and says "Hold on to your butts!"

Deep Freeze

The Midwest is under a blanket of frigid air right now. As I write this post the real temperature is -7F and the windchill is -38F! Schools are closed. Even some businesses are closed. My boss texted me this afternoon and said to stay home tomorrow. Snow days as an adult ROCK!

A friend posted this on her Facebook today. I was 11 years old when this blizzard hit. We don't get snows like that anymore!
