Out with the old; In with the new!

Actually, I haven't had many real problems during the past year, although I've had enough to gripe about.  Closing on this year I'm thinking about what I want to change during 2020.  I think I want to be more optimistic; more loving; more forgiving.  Considering what I've spent during the past couple of months, I should also try to be more frugal!

I took a photo of the center of the mantel and here it is: 


The wreath in the center was made for me by Steve, Ara's fiance.  The lighthouse on the left was painted by my granddaughter, Autumn, and the puppy in the picture on the right was drawn by granddaughter, Arianna. 

I just took Rocky for a short walk and am trying to work with him to keep him from pulling on the leash when we walk.  He is definitely an alpha male, but he'd better learn PDQ that I am the  alpha female!  I plan to start going back to my chiropractor after the first of the year as Rocky's constant pulling has my lower back all out of shape!

So I have every reason to be optimistic about the coming year, (except for the political drama and the state of the world).  I may or may not post again before the end of the year, but I wish all of you the very best for 2020.

  1. Don't stay away from posting for too long. Rocky may be an alpha male but I bet he would give up his life protecting you.

    1. Oh, I think he would. He is a good watchdog - his hearing is excellent and his bark can sound deadly. But he's a lab after all, and doesn't have an angry or aggressive bone in his body!

  2. Wishing you the Best for the upcoming year. Most Labs settle down after the first Two Years.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Thanks, and I also wish you the best for the coming year and beyond. Jeannie's daughters are very artistic, and so loving. I'm a lucky grandmother and am so proud of all my grandchildren.

    1. Thank you, Ms. B. I also want to wish you the same for the New Year. I'm certainly blessed with my family, but would love to make friends nearby.

  5. Hi Gypsy Have you done one of the old training tips to stop Rocky from pulling? When he pulls you turn around and take him in the opposite direction. You keep on doing that until he realizes that pulling will get him nowhere. I am so sorry that he is hurting your back. Happy Tails and Trails, Penny

  6. I have never seen anything that has worked so effective like Chief Dr Lucky spell that was able to bring my lover back to me within 48 hours. I run into luck on that beautiful day that i found Chief Dr Lucky contact details on an article that someone wrote about Chief Dr Lucky i had no choice that to contact and trust him. Chief Dr Lucky shocked me because i was not expecting to get a positive result as fast as that because the way my boyfriend left me was terrible, he lift me for my friend and i was told by Chief Dr Lucky that she used a black magic spell on him. Since the return of my lover i have made a promise that i will write out Chief Dr Luck on the internet and his contact details are +2348132777335 and via email: Chiefdrlucky@gmail.com . His website: http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/
