It’s Freezing Cold, Dark, and Gloomy #HappyNewYear2018 #NewYear

It’s dangerously cold here on the U.S. Mid-Atlantic coast, and even the beach looks dark and gloomy this holiday weekend. Polar Bear Plunge fundraising swims have been cancelled in several beach communities due to concerns about public safety, and a news story reported that sharks are freezing in the frigid waters. I’m blowing the dust off my treadmill to exercise inside, since it’s waaaay too cold to take a walk on the boardwalk or around the park.

I’ll spend New Year’s Eve with Netflix, a cozy fire in the fireplace, and a glass of wine. Have I mentioned that I hate winter?

Stay warm, everyone! Happy New Year! Wishing you the best in 2018.

Santa’s House on The Boardwalk – #Christmas #ChristmasSpirit

I took these pictures of Santa’s House on the Rehoboth, Delaware boardwalk, where children visit Santa every weekend from Thanksgiving ’til Christmas. My three-year old grandson is just beginning to grasp the concept of Santa Claus, especially the part about him bringing toys to good children, and his excitement has filled me with Christmas spirit. There’s nothing like having a small child around to better appreciate the holidays.

Merry Christmas!

Saw this weird, spooky tree and thought of Halloween when I took this picture.

Have a fun day!

It’s my birthday and I’m taking the day off

Today is my birthday, so I’m taking the day off to have lunch with a good friend, see the movie “The Mountain Between Us” with Idris Elba and Kate Winslet (and damn the Rotten Tomatoes 45% rating), and then go out to dinner with my family. A fun day will take the edge off growing older.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
