On another unrelated note, I’m a terrible blog slacker because I said I would do a December Photo Challenge, and then I decided not to. It’s been a rough month, so I won’t even apologize. Instead, I will share a few pictures from this month that I have enjoyed taking.
I hope everyone has a blessed New Year. I hope that 2015 fulfills dreams for many of us that 2014 failed to do.
That sounds pessimistic. I’ll try again.
I hope everyone has a blessed New Year. I hope that 2015 isn’t as cruddy of a year as 2014 was.
Grrr, I messed it up, again.
I hope everyone has a blessed New Year. Good riddance to 2014, which somehow ended up more wretched than 2013.
Apparently, this isn’t going to work.
I hope everyone has a blessed New Year. The end. J
(For the record, I did not take all of these pictures. However, they were sent to me, and I liked them. Therefore, I'm taking credit for them. True photo credit goes to someone else in my family. They won't really care.)
