These are some carrots and beets that I just harvested from the garden for christmas dinner. It really is possible to keep your carrots, beets and many of the other root vegetables in the ground well into the winter. I hope your Christmas dinner is as wonderful as I'm looking forward to ours being. P~
Good news... That big Security plus test that I had mentioned needing to pass a number of times, well I passed it on Tuesday!
This was one of those things that just loomed over my head in such a way that I really couldn't justify doing anything else but study for it until it was completed. Well as I said, I finally passed it and I feel like I've been given my life back! I still have a couple of things that I need to wrap up work wise, but things look like they should be back to normal here at the beginning of the year.
On the health front, A~ and I have both been feeling a lot better as of late so our hopes are really a lot higher for next year and for being able to accomplish more of our goals. After last year anything would be better right?
Another thing new is that I decided to allow myself to finally join the ranks of the technology bound masses and got a phone. I finally feel like there's handheld devices that have gotten to the point where they are not just toys but are devices that can really allow a person to maximize their time and get some things done when they otherwise would not have been able to. To that end, and as a personal present to myself after a very very long year, I went out and got a new Android smart phone the other night and so far I love it! As a matter of fact, I'm writing this post on the phone as I lounge downstairs watching a movie. (One I've already seen of course, I refuse to turn into one of those guys that sits on their phones all the time while the world passes by.) In fact one of the reasons that I wanted to get this phone in particular was because it has a new google speech feature on it. I want to be able to talk into my phone when I have a thought or an idea so that it will save me time in writing or at least I can get the idea down on paper.
Anyway, that's what has been going on with me. Not too much, but things are starting to look up and I look forward to a new year soon where we can talk more often. Until then, I want to wish all who celebrate it a very merry Christmas, to all others I send you all many best wishes as the year winds down.
