So, 2017

Here it is, the second day of a new year. To all of you who have either newly arrived on DW or are now reawakening dormant accounts you made here at some time in the past, a warm welcoming whinny. It's good to see you here, though I'm sorry it took an earthquake in LJ management to bring you. Make yourselves comfortable. You'll find that DW management is much more like the old LJ we remember from long ago, and in many ways superior even to that.

The horses are tiptoeing about on crunchy ice outside, a remnant of snow accumulated and then melted before Christmas. Today's forecast is fog with possible rain showers, but the thermometer is to plunge again below freezing later in the week. Dismal winter. But at least the days are getting longer already, and noticeably so.

Husband is making pea soup from the leftovers of the Christmas ham: it smells good already and even though the fridge is still stuffed with other leftover tasty things. Unfortunately, I'm still dieting for the foreseeable future, so it takes a while to eat all this stuff up.

As a new year's day project I sorted through the many ephemera that were stuck to the refrigerator door by so many refrigerator magnets that it's a wonder the neighbors' refrigerators haven't been sucked into our kitchen by the force field. Old recipes, newspaper clippings, takeout menus from restaurants that have since gone out of business. It was quite a time capsule. The magnets are still there; the flapping bits of yellowed paper are gone. And yes, there is still enameled metal under there and not even rusty.

So, in honor of the new emigration from LJ, I am doing my own small part to dust things off and post more. I won't call it a resolution because we all know those are doomed to failure.
