How Time Flies

   Well, here it is, 2011 already. I noticed when Tim and I started having kids, that time went by really fast. Being a grandparent speeds time up even more. When I was a teenager, I couldn't even imagine being a parent, yet alone, a grandparent. You know the saying "time flies when you're having fun"? Well, I can honestly say, it wasn't all fun, but the time did fly.
   I didn't stay up to see the New Year in. My movie ended about 10 and I finished my book about 11 and boredom set in so I went to bed. If you've seen 1 New Year in, you've seen them all. At least up here, there were no guns being shot off, like there is in the city, which is odd, since we hear gun shots all the time up here, what with target practice and hunting.
   I decided in December I was really going to make a big effort and loose weight, eat better and hopefully get in better shape. I figure, since it was in December that I decided this, it's not a New Year's resolution. For me, New Year resolutions last about a day, so I just don't make them.
   I have more things to crochet for Myrna. She says she's going to keep me in business. I guess if that's the case, I should get organized. I'm not very good at being organized. I start out well and it goes down hill from there.
   We still have snow and it has been in the teens and 20's for our highs and in the single digits and teens for our lows. More snow is expected.
   I saw an immature bald eagle fly over the house the other day. This time of year, we usually see bald eagles flying by. In Wolf Lodge Bay, Idaho, you can go and see many bald eagles as they catch the dying salmon. January and February are the best times to see them. We never manage to get up there in time to see them. Maybe this year, but icy roads and snow aren't good traveling conditions. Also, in February, up in Utt,WA the trumpet swans stop by on their way up to Canada. I'd like to go and see them again, too. It's closer to us, so the possibilities are better.
   I hope everyone had a good Christmas and I hope the New Year is good to everyone. I'm off to a good start. I actually folded the towels, just in time to wash more. Maybe I should make folding clothes my resolution, since the clothes folding dryer hasn't been invented yet.


  1. Yeah resolutions never work out. Glad to see you are staying busy with towel folding though. The view up there reminds me of the scenes in the movie Shining.

  2. What can I say, those towels are going to be the death of me. It does look like scenes from the Shining up her.I wonder if that will happen to me after being stuck in the house during winter?
