Well it’s the first day of a new year and people have been
asking about my resolution. My answer is simple, I don’t do
resolutions. I’m going to be the same opinionated, foul mouthed,
but lovable, person I was last year.
I’ve always believed the new year is book with 365 blank pages.
As the year goes on we fill the pages and at the end of the year
we hope it’s at least interesting. On this first day when I went
outside to feed the feral cats it was -17 degrees with a wind
chill of -40 degrees. It was about the same when I put feed out
for the birds.
Here on the east coast of Iowa we have been under a Wind Chill
Advisory since Thursday that is in effect until Tuesday morning.
The wife hates it even though I tell her it will cut down on
the bugs come summer.
And tonight we should get a real treat if the sky stays clear.
The first full moon of 2018 will also be a super moon. At 8:26
pm Central Time, the moon will be as close to the earth as it will
get all year. Last night when I started the car for the wife the
moon lit up the sky like God left a night light on for us.
So enjoy our first Monday in the new year as we won’t have
another like it until this time next year. Now, I’m a quart low
on coffee and know how to use the coffee maker.
Comments are always welcome.
