“Fresh Starts: Setting Your Sights on the New Year on Dec. 27/2023”

Good Morning! May your troubles be as few as a cow in a cornfield.

It’s another cloudy morning, waking up in cottage country. We are also having some light showers and the temperature is/was sitting at 4.1 C | 39.38 F. The winds are coming in from the North East.
I don’t suspect we will be seeing any sunshine till early next week.

Highway 522 is very quiet this morning. Actually, the only thing passing fast on the highway these days, is the gossip.

That being said, I found that after living here for over twenty some years that gossip travels so fast, that by the time you finish saying, “Did you hear?” Someone’s already replying, “Oh, that’s old news.”

On another note, I didn’t work in my woodworking shop yesterday, as I got tied up here at my computer editing some YouTube videos. Actually, I made a lot of progress. Which makes me happy. The more I do, the better I get at using this editing program. I have to admit it has been a challenge getting used to it, and a few times I was just about ready to throw in the towel, feeling beaten by the whole situation. But you know, my lovely wife, she wouldn’t hear none of it. She told me, “You never quit on anything,” and pushed me to keep going. Even gave me a good pat on the back and praised me for sticking it out. After that, things started lookin’ up. Truth be told, she’s been my rock, my inspiration, keepin’ me going all these years.

Today I will continue on since I am on a roll. I might however head on outdoors for a walk around our property later on, if for nothing else than to get some fresh air and exercise. I can’t be cooped up indoors for too long; it ain’t the friendliest thing for us seasoned folk. Not only that, but I’ve found that it’s all about finding that balance between staying active and soaking in the serenity outdoors. Maybe I’ll stumble upon a good story or two while I’m at it. Life’s an interesting journey, that’s for sure.

With that I am off for a bowl of porridge this morning that my little woman is preparing for me and will then as my wife keeps on telling me … “What mischief I can get into.” She’s probably onto something there. Life’s more fun with a dash of mischief, right?

Well, that’s me for this country morning, and I will leave you with this: “Life’s like a pair of worn-out boots – comfortable and full of stories. Sip your hot chocolate, folks, kick back, and let the day tell you a tale or two.” GW
