Looking forward to all the good in 2014

Here we are, another year has passed and we are beginning a new one.

I am just getting used to writing 2013 on my checks, and now I have to start all over remembering what to put on them. Last year was a good one, but I am looking forward to the new one. I hope I can rise above all the disappointments I had last year, and focus on all the good things life has to offer.

I am not looking forward to the weather that has been forecast for us for next week. They say it will be colder than it has been in the last 20 years. We just didn’t appreciate all the warmer than usual years we had. I am already trying to get warm. I guess I will just stay inside and look out. It seems the cold air just goes right through all the coats I manage to put on.

We can always look forward to spring and the warmer weather it promises. I hope you have marked April 7 on your calendar. That will be our International Night. We will be going to Indonesia this year. Maya, who has the Indonesian restaurant downtown, will be catering the meal and telling us about her homeland. After meeting her, I am looking forward to this evening. It will also be our Cultural Arts exhibit. So, get started working on your entry for this. The regular exhibit will be just like past years with the special exhibit being purses. Get your thinking cap on and sew up your favorite purse pattern. I forgot, it doesn’t have to be sewed. It can be crocheted,. knitted, or any other technique you want to use.

More details will be coming in the future so watch this column for them. We hope to have a large participation.
