And so it begins ...

This is BS, a feral cat
that has adopted us.
You would think I would have a lot to say ... or for that matter, know what to say.

I have kept a blog for a few years.  Mostly I wrote about all the little issues ... trying to deal with life, my depression and a few other issues.  I made my last entry in my previous blog about a year ago.  It was actually supposed to be a launching point for more entries throughout 2016 ... it just didn't work that way.  That entry was made just before everything I knew was so drastically changed.

I really cannot get into a lot of details on some of 2016 ...

Actually, I do not want to wallow in the events of 2016.  So many 
things happened.  There was good and bad ... highs and lows.  

My nature draws my memory to the things that did not go well ... things that I had 
little or no control over, but I still occasionally beat myself up for the outcome.  I guess that's one reason I added a picture of the latest addition to the crazy cat lady collection.

Well, BS is sort of a member of the family.  He stops by almost every day for some food, and lately to sleep on our patio ... especially when it is raining, or cold.  BS is short for Brown Siamese.  My niece calls him Mocha ... Pam and I thought about calling him Sy ... my mom came up with BS, and it fits.

So now it is 2017.  I am not a fan of New Year's resolutions.  If something is a goal, then it should be a goal all year long.  If something comes up in May or September, then I should do what I can to make the best of it at that time ... it doesn't even make sense to wait until the new year.

Also ... if I do have a setback, then I should want to stand up and dust myself off as quickly as I can.  If I just throw my hands in the air and quit because I fell short of a goal ... or because I self sabotaged myself, then I will never accomplish much of anything.

One of the rare trips to the beach.
Such a beautiful sight 
So my first entry in this new blog winds up being a ramble.  Get used to it ... most of my writing is rambling ☺

I am starting this blog to have a place to write ... to ramble ... to share my photos ... maybe even voice my opinions, or my memories, or other stories that pop into my head along the way.  I do not plan on making a schedule.  I may write a new entry several times in one week, then not post anything for a while.

My blog, my rules 😈

2016 ended with this rainbow.  To me it is a sign that the year long emotional storm may be ending.
