I think we are all hoping for a more normal new year. I realize it will take the first few months to "normalize", but I'm trying to keep my hopes high, and also realistic! To me, 2020 was nearly a total waste and I don't know how I could get through another one like it.
Workmen will start replacing parts of the fence along one side of my back yard, so I will have to keep Rocky inside for a few days. He loves to go visiting and is an escape artist to boot! A large section has been replaced about a month ago, although they need to build up the soil level to meet the fence. As it is, he has no problem finding escape routes or going under the new fence.
I know I'm not alone in dreaming of peace in our country and in the world, and a better political atmosphere. The last four years has been the absolute worst in my memory, but the people have been so divided that it will be difficult to bring back any sense of normalcy. We can only hope.
So here's to 2021 and an end to the divisions in our society.
