Instead I'm feeling rather content and happy these days. Thankful that I made it through yet another year, relatively unscathed. I successfully passed two law courses. We got the house mostly painted. We are both employed. We like where we live.
This Christmas season brought all sorts of good things. Good food, a long rest, a new winter coat to keep me warm.
There is snow piled several feet deep right outside the doorstep, and icicles hanging from the roof but the electricity and heat has held. Many people in Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick were without electricity and warmth this holiday. Some spending a week or more without. I am very grateful that here on the island we were fortunate enough to keep the lights on and get a glimpse of this.
The Christmas lights in Rustico are said to be some of the best on the island. This was my first year taking it in. I was quite impressed.
So goodbye 2013 and welcome 2014. I have my fingers crossed this year will be just as good as the last.
