It's 2015. I thought we just started 2014. Where did it go?
As you grow older, time speeds up. Did you notice how much faster time goes now?
I went around and installed 2015 calendars in each room. I have three left. Do I need more than one in some rooms? We don't have large rooms now. At one time when the boys were growing we had a large house with many rooms. We could each be in a different room and move around and not meet each other. I'm sure glad we don't have a big house now. Keeping up with chores in this small house is enough for me.
We still have a fairly big yard. But, we live in the country. We have neighbors but we have wildlife abounding, too. I went out to feed the birds this morning. We have lots and lots of birds. With all of the rain we've been having I had to clean out the feeders because rain and seed make mush that clogs the holes. It must have made them happy because before I got back into the house there were dozens of birds out there. The cardinals are my favorite. There are some who stay all year. A few are so big I wonder how they lift off to fly. They do enjoy their food. If the feeders are empty too long they fly to the porch railing and holler at us.
I hope everyone had a great 2014 and enjoyed the last evening. We stayed home and had a quiet evening. Our neighbors entertained us with their cheery bonfire and laughter and fireworks. We went to bed early but they had fireworks going off all hours of the night. I think the last ones I heard was about 3 am. They must all be still sleeping because there are about a dozen cars still parked out there. I wonder how everyone found a place to sleep. The floor, perhaps?
Our boys and their friends used to cover the floors with their sleeping bags on New Year's Eve.
No snow here, just rain. That's fine with me. I've shoveled my share of snow in my lifetime. I'll start another year tomorrow. Number 74. Where did the time go?
