2017 certainly had it's challenges but it also had blessings. I'm sure 2018 will be the same way. Each "New Year" has it's, (Up's and Down's) and it's up to each one of us to deal with them the best we can.
We always close out the old year by eating a bunch of snack foods, watching movies, setting off fireworks and toasting the new year at midnight
Poor Greta had to work and didn't get home until around 10:00 pm. She was hungry as you can see by her plate of food and not amused that I was taking pictures!
Another of our "Goofy" New Year's photo's. Front Row: L-R, Greta, Ida (that's me). Back Row: L-R, Coleen, Mike & my mom, (Marian).
One of our cats, Harley watching us outside as we got ready to set off the fireworks. - That first big bang though scared him and he was out of that window in a flash!
Finally for SPARKS:
Don't you just love that you get to start "fresh" each year. - Here's to a great 2018!
