The last day of a decade. Kind of special. I’m taking the day off. Yup! Honest. For real. I don’t know when I’ve ever done this before, I’m an ‘A’ type who usually does what she’s planned or should.
I’ve got a good excuse. They’ve issued a ‘rain warning’. They don’t usually do that, rain isn’t unusual here, especially at this time of year. They’ve cancelled some celebrations for tonight and talked about millimeters expected to come down on our heads. (I have lived here for years but still haven’t learned what millimeters actually are.)
I’m not acknowledging my pedometer today as I usually do, but staying in and reading
Jodi Picoult’s ‘My Sister’s Keeper’ which I can hardly put down. The book is about a couple who have a child who has leukemia. There’s no match to help her in the family so they decide to have a new child specially designed to be a match. When she is 13, she sues her parents for using her as a donor throughout her life. I’m reading about the court battle right now and don’t yet know how it ends.
Any illness in a family, physical or mental, can have dire consequences on everyone involved and this is clearly seen in this novel.
Meanwhile, this is a good opportunity for me to wish each of you the very best for 2020 and to thank you for visiting my blog. I love that you live in at least 110 countries — that’s how many I’m aware of since I’m not always home to note new ones.
If you celebrate, enjoy! I didn’t make any resolutions. Don’t have to. I’m perfect as I am — and so are you.
You are indeed perfect just as you are, dear Maughm! Hoping to get up there to see you soon in this brand new decade!
Ha, ha! And so are you Susan! Can’t wait until you get here. I need a BIG Susan hug! Love ya, Maughm
Happy new year from Barcelona!

I mean, Happy New Year!
Gosh Neil: Millimeters? Never could figure those out, but it poured all day. Happy New Year back at you. Stay well and keep writing.
Happy 2020! Looking forward to your posts…
Same to you Jaya: I look forward to yours as well. Happy Happy….
Bonne année, Muriel! Enjoy this sunny day:)
Ha, ha Val: I sure DID enjoy the one sunny day we had in the middle of all this rain, but I’ll take rain any day rather than ice and snow, so I’m not complaining. Hope to see you soon. Happy New Year. Love, Muriel
Happy New Year! Wishing you the very best and hoping you’ll also take time in 2020 to take days off for yourself.
Thank you. Great idea! Took off the week-end and had a great time away. It was fun. Looking forward to reading your work.
