I hope, if you have snow in your area, that you’re enjoying it and not shaking your fists at the gods (or Mayor Bloomberg) because you can’t get out of your home or anything like that. Around here, some snowdrifts are about six feet tall, but streets are still somewhat navigable.
In fact, I’m going to venture out today to have lunch with a friend. I’ve been a virtual shut in since I went food shopping on Sunday, and besides the Hubbins, I haven’t had that much human contact. The cats are loving it.
Many thanks to all of you who bought extra copies of Cherries to give as holiday gifts! If you want them autographed, just send them to me and I’ll scribble and get them back to you asap.
With only a few days left to 2010, I’m looking at what charities I can make last-minute donations to. I make monthly donations to causes I want to support, but this last week, it’s nice for me to see who else is in need that I can help in some small way. It sure beats making new year’s resolutions–FEH on those. I find them to be rooted in some form of self-flagellation, which is not one of my favorite hobbies. I prefer Now Year’s Resolutions–a decision to make a positive change on any random day of the year. Why wait until January? What’s wrong with December 29?
And please, whether you’re making New Year’s Resolutions or Now Year’s Resolutions, don’t hate on yourself for whatever it is your doing differently. Simply make the decision to change and then act on it, giving yourself a pat on the back just for having the moxie to try. Doesn’t that feel better?
If you’re still hating on yourself, think about others who may be in need of your help. If you don’t have money to donate, how about volunteering in some way? That’ll burn off a few guilt calories.
Tell me your Now Year’s Resolutions and I’ll tell you a few of mine. And have a Fabulous New Year!
