Blessed Imbolc

It is unusually mild here in my neck of the woods. So it is entirely possible that I could see a sign of Spring's arrival, which is what Imbolc is all about. The snow is melting like mad and I see a lot of grass which is crazy for this region. But I myself am not crazy so I am not even going to go looking for a groundhog. We are sure to get massive cold and snow before this winter is over.

I am glad January is over. Never have I liked January (though I like the 13th because that is when our beloved son-in-law was born). Other than that, what is to like about January? It is usually cold, snowy, cloudy, a little depressing after the holidays. And what would possess anyone to make resolutions! Summer is very very far away, and the longings for porch life and fresh gardens are almost painful.

But it is Imbolc and there may not be physical signs; the Spirit of Spring warms the heart and mind.

Here I Am!! I Am Here!! Really!!

Happy 2016!! Does anyone remember me at all? It's been a long road, but here I am! Ready to jump back into the Blog-o-Sphere and try, try, try to reconnect with all my wonderful friends here. Missed everyone very much.

First things first!! My dearest husband is doing well now and is adjusting to this life after more than two years of abdominal surgeries and botched surgeries, and long hospital stays and long recovery times.  But it looks like he has finally reached the stage that he won't need more surgeries and all will be eventually normal and healthy. Takes a long time to get back to normal and healthy, but he is 90% there. Yay!!

I was having health problems too, but after a lot of physical therapy, I am much much better...advanced arthritis in my neck, but doing fine.

The rest of my family is thriving and happy and we had a wonderful gathering over the holidays.

And now here is 2016 and I expect it to be fantastic, healthy, happy, interesting, and fun.

Will you join me??

Bright Blessings to you all.  Robin
