Bringing in the New Year

There are still a few hours remaining to the year 2017, but I just hung my 2018 calendar, a custom calendar that I ordered with photos which I took in Mexico City.

No New Year's Eve revelry is planned here.  At midnight I will open the front door, ring the dinner bell which belonged to my great-grandmother, and then go to bed.

The first week of the new year will be busy however.  Tomorrow I am invited to spend the day with one of my former teaching colleagues and her family.  I have been spending New Year's Day with them for the past several years, and we always have a very nice time.  Then there are more mundane activities planned.  On Tuesday the plumber is coming to repair a leaky pipe in the kitchen, on Wednesday I have a dentist appointment, and on Thursday I am taking my car in for service.  Then on Friday there is something enjoyable on my schedule.  My cousin and I are going to the Cleveland Museum of Art to see a special exhibit called "The Jazz Age".  

The following weekend I must get ready for my departure for Mexico on January 9th.
And then I can say "Adiós" to the snow and cold of an Ohio winter.


Happy New Year to all my readers!
Feliz Año Nuevo


  1. I'm sure it'll be tough to leave Cleveland in January for Mexico City, but I know you can do it! Haha...

    Feliz Año Nuevo!

    1. Happy New Year to you Kim! I'm sure that things are looking a lot happier for you and your mom.
