    A New Year with New Opportunities
    I have always liked to kind of clean clutter on the first day or two of January, whether it be on my desk or in the kitchen cabinets, drawers and closets, etc.
    But I don’t always get those tasks accomplished as I wish I could!
    I don’t really make new year’s resolutions any more, but I do like to try to learn at least one new thing every year. (Don’t always get that done, either, at least not the things I want to learn.)

    Critters Cozy In Their Barn
     “Lady,” the sweet little mini-horse and senior Homestead critter, and her barn buddy, “Buckwheat (Bucky) Burr,” are “snug as bugs in a rug,” as their conscientious and caring caretaker, namely Bill, cleaned their floors thoroughly, and filled their sleeping quarters with clean straw, covered their window with clear plexiglass, stopped up any drafty places and closes their door at night against any cold winds, rain, sleet or snow.
