Here it is, the middle of January in a brand new year already and I’m getting nothing done. I find myself dreaming more than I am doing. Does that happen to you? I wonder when I will get energetic enough to get all the things done I want to do. I want to clean out closets. I want to begin my walking regimen again. Now that’s a good question. I wonder when that will happen again.
Just a few years ago I was walking at least five miles a day and then my health went all downhill. After getting a pacemaker in I thought I’d be walking miles again real soon. Well, it hasn’t happened yet. I can barely walk a mile without getting tired out. I have got more done this past year than I have been able to do. But I want to walk again without wearing myself out. I want to stop whining about it also.
I wonder if I will finish many quilts this year. I have been working on blocks for the same quilt for the past several weeks. It’s called Grandmother’s Fancy and I’ve completed one quilt from this particular pattern that I love and another that is just waiting to be quilted so, of course, I started another one. The blocks are just so much fun to make and are using a lot of my scrap fabric. It’s like a display of a lot of my old fabric. I have flour sack fabric in it and fabric we sold at our store twenty years ago and fabric I got from my mother’s stash after she died. If I get the energy to take pictures, I’ll show you the quilts in my next post.
I’m wondering if David and I will take a vacation this year. We didn’t take one last year because of, well, you know, my medical problems. We are planning on buying a new car, maybe a Jeep this Spring and we tell ourselves we need to break it in by taking a really great trip somewhere. Alaska again? Maybe. Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. Sounds wonderful. Martha’s Vineyard? That’s somewhere I have always wanted to visit. Who knows. I just know If we don’t take a trip I will feel like we are getting too old to try again and I really don’t want to think that.
I remember my mother’s and daddy’s last trip to Colorado. They got into a blizzard and had to stay in a church for a while. Mother always had snacks with her and shared them with people around her. It was a trip they talked about a lot, but it was their last one. They visited some friends in Colorado and went out to dinner with them and the man got choked on some food and my daddy performed the Heimlich maneuver on him and saved him. Yes, it was their last trip.
I’m wondering if this trial against our president will ever come to an end. No president has had to go though what President Trump has had to endure. I know some hate him so much they will believe anything about him that they hear, but he’s done so much good since he’s been in office. If only the media told the truth. I’m praying it will all end and he will be allowed to do his job without being harassed constantly.
I wonder how many people decided they weren’t going to read my blog anymore because of the above paragraph.
I’m wondering if we will have a blizzard this Winter. I know some people really don’t want to see snow, but I’d love to see one really big snow before Winter is done. Last year Winter was so mild, we had very little snow and it just didn’t feel like Winter. Just one day where everyone has to stop and stay at home. Just one day to snuggle down with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book before it’s time to get outdoors and plant a garden and work in the yard.
I’m wondering if I will lose the weight I really want to lose. Well, not enough that I didn’t eat a big piece of David’s chocolate birthday cake I baked for him. It is really good! I have to stop baking which I like more than cooking.
I’m wondering what other people in blogland will be talking about this year. I read several blogs. Some I never miss because they are such good writers. I wonder about their lives and how they are doing all the time.
I wonder just how quickly this year will pass by. If it’s like the last one, I will be writing my 2021 blog before long.
What do you wonder about? Life if full of wonder and delight. Hope this new year is going well with you. Bye.
