What's Up For 2021?
|Our new business card.|
Like many, I am ready to put 2020 to rest. This has not been the best year for many. We had a virus take our freedom, safety, security, and livelihoods away from us. Many states had to lockdown to keep the virus from spreading. I haven't been able to give my Mom a hug and kiss since the beginning of the year. She is 92 and living in a group home. Thankfully, she is doing well. We have seen heroes emerge such as first responders, nurses and doctors who worked tirelessly to save lives. I can't wait to stop wearing a mask!
We did have some good things happen this year. After losing our pup, Lucy, to illness at eleven years of age in November 2019, we decided to get another pup. We found Tilly, an 8 week old cocker spaniel. She is a bundle of energy and very bossy. She has managed to destroy some of our items causing us to Tilly proof the house. Max didn't take to her right away, but is warming up to her. We love her so much. She will be a year on January 4th.
Next April, Gary and I will celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We were planning to take a cruise, but that did interest us. We decided that renting a house in another state, possibly Utah, with our friends would be more of what we want. Our interests have changed and sitting in a cool climate with fresh air and trees with good friends, sounds perfect. I will definitely be posting about that.
The one thing I will be working on with Sharon is our Groovy New Life's YouTube, Instagram, and blog sites. We are working on how we want our YouTube channel to look and sound. We want it to show everything that we are doing in a fun way that others will want to watch. We live in Arizona so it will have a southwest flare showing all the crafts, cooking, personal life struggles, travels and other antics we are up to. We plan to have it ready to go by April, before we go on the anniversary trip. We want to get to the point where we are posting a video a week.
I am praying that next year will be much better. I hope all stay healthy and happy in 2021.
