Monday 21- I did my stretches, ran a mile, lifted weights, and rode my bike.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 41 and 61 degrees, light breeze, humidity around 36 percent, overcast skies all day long.
According to the National Weather Service: “Tuesday: A 20 percent chance of rain before 10am. Partly cloudy, with a high near 53. Windy, with a west northwest wind 14 to 17 mph increasing to between 33 and 36 mph. Winds could gust as high as 49 mph. Tuesday Night: Clear, with a low around 33. Windy, with a northwest wind between 23 and 32 mph, with gusts as high as 46 mph.”
I spent a few hours cleaning the kitchen that I’ve been neglecting for the past couple of weeks since I finished the floor tiles. No excuse, just didn’t feel like doing it. Now it’s clean and we’ll see how long it stays that way.
I went over to Stoney’s for some of that lemon cake and yakked with him for a spell. Then I went for my evening walk when I got back and watched “My Name is Earl”. I did my stretches and practiced my guitar.
I needed to write and send in my column for Saturday’s newspaper and wanted to write something about the new decade coming up and how crucial it is. They only allow me 300 words and I wanted to put so much more into it! I thought I’d share it with you:

Our little Community hopes you had a wonderful Christmas and wishes you a happy New Year!
Thought for the week: Some would like to forget the last decade; the sweet promise of a new millennium and a new beginning was ruined by the 09/11/01 attacks on our nation and brought us to war. Just like Pearl Harbor these images will forever be burned into our minds and culture. Then greed of a few brought us the Great Recession. And Global Warming has been an ongoing concern. The Earth right now is at a cusp, a point of transition, where what we do as a nation and as individuals in the next ten years is crucial to our survival. We begin this new decade next Friday, and I for one am trying to figure out what I can personally do to make the world a better place. Here are a few: forgive your imperfections and those of others, leave as small a footprint on our environment as possible so others may follow, try to set a good example. I have many faults but I, like you, have a little kernel in that thick scull that tells the rest of the body what to do: tell a truth or a lie, lay in bed or exercise, play video games or get an education, do the right thing or the wrong. No one else has that much power over you! As of right now there are close to seven billion citizens on this small planet of ours and hopefully each and every one will start using their little kernel to create a better world and a new beginning!
