Today is my first day in nearly 10 years that I'm not tethered to Facebook or any other social media. I must tell you that it feels good. I seem to have more energy and more enthusiasm towards getting other things done. I sure don't miss the notifications on my cell phone. Those became very annoying. It was like I was being summoned by a command for attention by a petulant child. And like a fool, I just HAD to look on my phone to see who "liked" something, "posted something", "commented" on something, etc. Well, that's over. My time is my own time now.

Anyway, it's raining today but not in my heart! I got to visit with my daughter, son-in-law, and newest grandbaby, Ziva, yesterday. That little girl is so bright and such a joy to be with. Of course, all of my granddaughters are like that. Ziva and I spent some time just communing. She was most interested in my beard and the way that little girl giggles and smiles when I whistle the tune to "Winnie The Pooh" just steals my heart.

I'll be posting some new "stuff" in the next couple of days. I am revamping the website and in some sense re-learning it given I haven't spent much time lately on it. I hope that you are all having a glorious day and that the season of joy is upon you.
