Joyce really wanted to start the new year off right so here is the very first Hodgepodge for 2014. Join in and have some fun.
1. Times Square is the setting for the infamous ball drop signaling a brand new year....when did you last 'drop the ball' on something?
Ok so the first questionn is hard. I'm sure I forgot a lot of things. 2013 was the year of a lot of doctors appointments and medical terms. There were times when I had to look at the calendar on the fridge to see where I was suppose to be or see so I'm sure I forgot cards to people or calls to people or saying thank you for something.
I didn't make any resolutions for 2013 so I didn't have anything to have to actually do. It was the first year that I didn't make any resolutions.
3. Jack London is quoted as saying, "You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club." Agree or disagree? Why?
There are seasons in ones life when this is true. Times when one feels dried up, when one feels like they are sanding still. In those times, yes, grab a club a go swinging. Fight for what you need or want.
I enjoy food, but more than that I enjoy the company while I'm enjoying food. So as for the food, I can't remember but as for the company----
Slow down. Last year was a year of slowing down. Don't worry so much about the clean house, or height of the grass. Slow down. Stop looking at the smart phone and look at the grand daughters who want to color with me. Slow down. Enjoy a meal with friends, tell them you love them. Slow down. Let the chemo drugs wash over me and know that it will be over soon. YUP Slow down. I plan to do more of that in 2014.
I like the color and yes you would find in my wardrobe and in our bedroom. It screams summer to me and on days like today when it's 18 degrees (feels like 11) I need summer.
I guess I'm just ahead of the times, because this has been our bedroom for about 3 years now.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
2014 starts off with a bang for us. Our cancer fights continues. Yes, I'm still in remissions and that is good. We are moving forward in our fight and will be harvesting my own stem cells in January for future transplant. It's very involved and not a topic for such a beautiful day but I'll talk about it soon.
Have a wonderful and Happy New Year all.
