Out With the Old...Goodbye 2021

It's the last day of 2021 and it seems like everyone is ready to say goodby to this year.  Hopefully 2022 will be much better for everyone!  In other news...

  • The house is clean, all of the laundry is done (including blankets, comforters, etc), we cleaned up the yard, the car's gas tank is full, our pantry is stocked, all bills are paid...we are ready for the new year!
  • Sadly, Betty White died today.  I was so looking forward to her 100th birthday celebration next month.  She was a wonderful actress!
  • Hubby and I are staying home this evening.  The local news is saying 300,000 people will be celebrating New Year's Eve on the Las Vegas Strip and downtown Fremont...needless to say that is way more people than we want to celebrate with.  We went to the Strip for New Year's Eve the first year we lived here and that was an experience to last a lifetime (we almost got crushed when the crowd surged right after the fireworks ended--scary!).  It's also very cold outside, the covid virus is still running rampant, and we are old so we aren't nearly as interested in the party atmosphere as we were when we were younger!
  • Our plans for the first day of the new year include a First Day hike with my walking club and new year brunch at my friend's house (we aren't much for social gathering right now but our host is our 91 year old friend and when she said "you WILL be here right?" The only answer is "yes, of course".  So we are looking forward to an enjoyable, low-key first day of the new year.

I hope you and your family have a safe and fun new year's eve and a great new year day!
