that we are OK.
Much as I like my new Chrome Book, I can't figure out how to upload photos, so for now, I will just post some old ones. This one of the dogs must be really old because Faith is not that skinny now and it was before Samson's tear ducts got blocked. It's hard to believe that Faith will be six this spring and Samson is now 10 and a half.
I also find that I couldn't see the picture I posted for my new header, which is why it's sort of wintry and dark. Since it depicts a winter sun, something I'm very fond of and since I have no idea what I'm doing, it will stay there until I learn more. I will have to call on our local computer guy once again. We have by now become good friends, so it's OK.
The night after Christmas, we got hit with a fantastic snowstorm. Epic, my friend Jeanne called it -- and it was. We got 18 inches to two feet in places and the snow, which always begins to melt the next day, has lasted until now on the north side of our mountains. We lost power for about 40 hours, our road washed out, and worse, because the snow was so heavy and there was so much of it, our Juniper trees really suffered. My favorite one, the one I spent a lot of time on pruning, broke off from the top and several others lost many branches. I will post pictures when I learn how pictures will work on this computer.
In case you wonder what I have been up to, I'm not sure I know. Nothing much for some of the time, working on my cleaning up, getting rid of stuff -- a never ending project or so it seems - and also on a more serious side, I have spent time reflecting on my life, on Errol and me, on grieving, on missing him, on getting more in touch with what losing him has meant for me. This was a necessary process because when it all happened, I was more focused on getting on with my life, fixing up my house, making new friends, and, well yes, getting on with it all. I've spent most of this time home alone.
I have lots more to write about, but I will close for now with wishing you all a very Happy New Year, and thank you for your emails, your lovely Jacquie Lawson Christmas cards and general greetings of hello. I have missed you all.
