We rang in the New Year–but I we did our countdown from Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland–meaning, it was 9 p.m. in Washington D.C, but we had the kids convinced it was midnight. Are we going to hell for lying to the kids? Thank goodness for Netflix and their pre-programed countdowns.
I gave up resolutions for lent. Oops, wrong holiday, we are not there yet. Every year I try to be resolute, but I make resolutions that are impossible to do–such as losing weight.
This year I will be resolute in drinking more tea and learning 10 new words for the year. I’m not promising myself that I will remember the words, but I will learn them. Does it mean I am hedging my bet, if I get an email every day with new words? Unfortunately, I know most of them. But 10 is doable.
So far this year, I drank more cups of tea than I did in six months last year, so I think I might make it.
And, I already learned one new word. Senectitude.
If I want to live a long life, it is important to stay active in my senectitude.
Now, it’s only 9 new words to learn in 12 months!
Warm tea on a frigid 68 degree day, sound so comforting. Want to join me?
