First year we didn't make one trip to Amish country. The hotel has sent me deals via text many times this year.
First year we never got to go camping.
Went to way too many funerals this year.
Pandemic year kept us all inside almost all of the year, with very little visits to Mom and Dad, and away from extended family and friends. Isolation, depression, and feeling like we are dragging all day long. Add to that state mandates and restrictions forced upon us.
Thankful for what we did get from the drought-year garden, but what a stressful time keeping it watered.
I haven't journaled in my regular journal all year. In a way it may be a good thing, as I would be writing negative stuff that I would have to repeat over and over.
No vehicle has forced to me to shop online. I ordered a pair of earrings for one daughter and they sent me something else. Ordering online has become a pain in the rump. Items are either not available due to the earlier shutdown, or parts I need, or items are over priced. I have been having difficulty finding yarn I need when I do get a vehicle. Just a frustrating year.
Now we are in the month of December. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. I loved decorating, making handmade gifts, shopping, baking....my zip has left my zap. I don't know how to get it back, but won't stop trying.
I'm putting together a post with what makes me happy or gives me joy next. Thinking it's important to do this. Especially this year.
