So, our New Year is here.  I wonder what 2014 will bring…  Happiness and health I hope.  Christmas was really wonderful this year with all my girls and their families here to celebrate AND my Mom and Dad.  It was especially great because all 3 of my girls live in different states — one in Georgia, one in California and one in Texas.  So it took a lot of coordination and work on their part to get here at the same time.  Thank you daughters!  You made not only my Christmas but my entire year!

I find it more and more difficult to blog these days.  FB has become such an easy tool to use — and not much is expected.  However I’m not ready to give up my blog nor my occasional post writing.  Perhaps this year I’ll blog more and find more balance in my life.

Speaking of balance, I’d pretty much decided to close SoapGecko the end of December.  But my eldest daughter stepped in and is taking on the responsibility of marketing the soap (which I hate) and leaving me to create.  I’m much happier with that situation so I’ve got my fingers crossed that it will work.  I do enjoy making the soap!  In fact – I’ve got the lye cooling right now for a new batch of….  well, lets just wait and see.

So I’ve got some pretty big trips, and a few small ones, planned for this year.  I’ve decided that I want to spend each of my daughter’s birthdays with them.  So in a couple of weeks I’ll be flying to California; in May I’ll be going to Georgia and in October to Texas.  In the spring I’m going to go on a cruise to the Panama canal and then in the fall on a trip to Bali.  I’m so excited!

And I want to spend more time on fun stuff this year.  Quilting, soap making, photography.  I think I’ll have a busy, busy year.

Finally I’d like to wish each and every one of you a healthy and happy New Year.

  1. I really feel that blogging is not dead – but facebook is ‘dying’ according to several techie articles I’ve seen! Blogging is so much more thoughtful. Your Christmas sounded lovely, 3 generations together is so fortunate. Happy New Year and feel free to ‘steal’ my monthly journal idea.
