One More Time

 


Happy New Year!

Doing a little reflecting in today's post.

Jan:

2018 brought a lot of ups and downs but
as I was going through pics for this post
I found more ups than downs. Which is
a good thing, right?

 
Feb:

Found us celebrating the 20th anniversary
of our "first date."  We went to one of our
fave restaurants and enjoyed a very nice
lunch.

 
March:

Spring arrived (briefly) before it got
blazing hot, we enjoyed a trip to one
of the local gardens located in the heart
of the city. It is such a beautiful place.
We also enjoyed time with family and
friends.




 
April:

THE PAINTING project is finished.
I haven't done a post on this project,
hopefully soon I can get more pics
organized.


 
May:

So exciting to see a former student
graduate from High School. My kids
deal with special issues daily and to
see one of "my kids" achieve this mile-
stone is AWESOME!
Also looked forward to the end of school
and summer break.

June:

Though we had some HOT days from late
Spring into June, summer arrived with a
vengeance! One darn Hot summer we did
have.
Lot's of family and friend celebrations
during June.

 
July:

As the heat continued, we hit the road
late in the month. We had a great visit
to Chicago!


 
August:

The Mr had a birthday.
Last visits with friends before school
started back.

 
September:

A month of festivals and fun. We
made our annual trip to see the
Sunflowers. Even with the intense
heat the flowers were so pretty.


 
October:

Concert month.
Mr. Rod Stewart arrived ready to go after
postponing his concert earlier in the year.
Asmost of you know, Mr. Stewart is one
of my ALL TIME favorite performers.

And on the spur of the moment we decided
to go see Fleetwood Mac. We can say that
we have seen Rock Legends.

 

 
November:

My birthday month.
Quiet Thanksgiving.
At the end of the month we had a "mini"
blizzard. Five inches of snow fell causing
a snow day for our first day back from
Thanksgiving break.




 
December:

My hardest month of the year.
But we start with our wedding
anniversary. 19 years together!
Remembering my Mom--she
has been gone for 11 and it is
still hard to enjoy the season.



In the midst of the season, Mr. Ken's
dad had heart surgery (he is doing great),
tough time at school we were able to fit in
the sights and sounds of Christmas. We
had a quiet Christmas at home and visited
with family several days after Christmas.
We spent New Year's Eve with good friends
and watched the ball drop.
My break is winding down and I am trying
to put a positive spin on the return to school
and classroom staff that just don't get it.
Hopefully a break has helped all of us.


2018 is in the books and so far 2019 is
going well.
Looking forward to a good year full of
peace and contentment.



~Keep on Dreaming~

  1. Love this post. As we've said, it's good to find the positive among the rubble! You had some great times this year. My husband's family had some land near Ada, Kansas, and I remember going out there one year and seeing the sunflowers that they were farming. Gorgeous! My mom has been gone 19 year this May. I don't think we ever get used to not having a parent with us. Easter is a tough time for me, as that was the last holiday we spent together. Looking forward to another year of blogging with you. Happy New Year, my friend!
