I finished this project. Yes, I know there is one more day left this year. Just what we need is one more day of 2020. Am I right?
Anyway, I'm done. It's been interesting, fun, challenging, educational, tedious, inspirational...all the things. I am ready for something new and maybe not so, every day. I'll still be taking pictures and probably every day because that is what I do. Maybe not sharing as much. 
As for this gratitude blogging, I'm taking that off-line. I need to do more writing, by hand.

I got to hang out with two of my grandbabies and my son. What an honor to get to spend time with these tiny humans. They bring me so much joy and I feel so blessed. Being in the presence of these beings is what life is all about. It brings me to tears just thinking about them. It also makes me miss my older grandbabies SO much it hurts.

Is the last Monday of 2020. Not gonna lie, I am looking forward to the end of this year. I know things won't change overnight but I do have hope for the future. As I type this, there are 22 days, 16 hours, and 15 minutes until the Presidential Inauguration. Yes, I have a countdown app on my phone.

We kayaked until sunset. It was absolutely gorgeous out there and just what we needed. 
I'm toast.
The end.
