New year, new month, new week, new beginnings.
Yes, we made it to South Carolina, and we enjoyed 70 degree temperatures for the first two days. The temps will be returning to the more normal 50’s range this week, but there’s no snow or ice.
A couple of photos for you from my first walk on the beach.
A few observations:
– The vast majority of folks of all ages are not wearing masks
– Although there is a supply shortage, you wouldn’t know it by the number of trucks on the road
– The drive gets longer every time
– Change the speed limit signs to reflect ‘minimum’ speed?
– I’m feeling my age after packing, loading, driving, unloading, unpacking
– Good friends are hard to find, so stay in touch with yours.
We’ve had an opportunity to see friends that we haven’t seen for two years. It’s wonderful. As sweet at it is to see these people, we also feel the loss of those who aren’t here this year.
“Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.” Eleanor Roosevelt
Hope you have a great first week in January. I’ll be headed to the library to get a temporary card, a grocery pickup, the fabric store for some project material, impatiently awaiting a computer part, and hopefully a walk or two on the beach or at Brookgreen Gardens if the weather breaks now and again. Sounds like a good week.
I’m hoping 2022 is kinder and gentler, but so far it seems a little rocky. I guess we’ll all need to keep maneuvering life’s speed bumps just like we did in 2020 and 2021 because none of us want to miss a curve. 😷
