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.

And a very happy New Year to you and hubby!

Just about every time I'm chilly in California I make myself remember that other parts of the world have *real* weather, not 1.5 seasons like here in the SF Bay Area XD I have to travel to visit the snow, and I like it that way!

I didn't hear about the LJ thing, but it sounds like I'd better retrieve some writing from that site. I wouldn't want to lose some of it, including my little forays into slash ficlets ;)

I hope 2017 is good to us all. I'm thinking warm thoughts of you :)

Light and laughter,

Husband is magic! Apparently, higher education does teach you things. 8^D

Hoppy gnu deer! Not all resolutions are doomed. I resolved to not wait for New Year's to make up resolutions, but to steer down the right path as the need arises.

I've been keeping up, but Dreamwidth seems adamant to show me only the last two weeks of entries. I completely missed your last two. I'll have to check more often!

Yes I've swept out the cobwebs here and am glad to see you active again (twitter just doesn't do justice to any but wandering thoughts). No resolutions, either, as social media and I have always had a love/hate relationship regardless of my hanging onto my internet presence for a scant twenty years.
