A quick little happy New Year’s post! I hope readers had a joyous holiday season with lots of merriment and good food.
My daughter Dee was with us for the week between Christmas and New Year’s. My husband, Clif, also took off the week. We had a great time and saw movies galore. My favorites were Tin-Tin, which utterly enchanted me, and The Descendants, which was beautifully acted and filmed and was very moving. Two completely different movies. Long live diversity!
Back to the swing of things on a cold, cold day. I’ll be bundling up in my “blanket” coat, an old wool thing from L. L. Bean, to take Liam for his walk this afternoon. Not at all stylish, but it’s warm, and that’s what counts in January.
Last night, I was sworn in as a library trustee. Tra-la-la! Now the fun begins as we try to raise 1.3 million dollars for an addition to the library. But if we succeed, what a gem the Bailey Public Library will be for the little town of Winthrop.
Onward to 2012 with its challenges and, I hope, its successes.
