Happy 2017!

It's hard to believe that 2016 has come to an end.  It
only seems like a short time ago we were all anxious
about Y2K...2000!  Now here we are at 2017.

Last year was a very good year, all things considered.   
We have many blessings for which we are truly grateful.  

Lots of work got done on our Project last year and
I will have some before and after photos to share 
in my next post.

Do you have resolutions for this new year?
I quit making New Year's resolutions a long time ago.
I figure that I'll never get through all those stacks of
magazines.  Nor will I stick with an exercise program
and drink only water.  And I'm pretty sure that I'll
never say no to chocolate.

I do hope to do better with my blogging this year.
It was a busy year so blogging kind of fell by the wayside.  
Losing my blogroll didn't help.  I started a new 
one but I still feel as if I'm missing some folks.  If you
 are one of them, please let me know!

Here's wishing you the very best year ever!
Happy New Year!



  1. Happy New Year, Cheryl. I hope that this year brings you many blessings- xo Diana

  2. Looks like you did a good job on your blog list. How frustrating! I agree that resolutions only set us up for failure. One of my followers suggests goals instead of resolutions. The older I get, the faster and faster time goes by! I hope you have a wonderful year,full of joy!

  3. Happy 2017, Cheryl! I am glad that the project is completed or mostly. Hope that you all had an amazing Christmas. Looking forward to seeing the before and afters.

  4. Happy New Year Cheryl, I don't make resolutions anymore either. I never kept them. I will be looking forward to seeing your before and after. My grandson shot a racoon off the roof of their dog kennel. It seems as though some are more brazen. I think about your hubby when I see linemen working on the power lines. Take care and thank you for stopping bye. Hugs and prayers from your NW Missouri Friend Shirley.

  5. Glad to see you back. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  6. Now that your daughter is living in the Project, you might have a little more blog time. I wish you and your family good health and happiness in the coming year....

  7. Here's to a better blogging year for both of us! ;) It is good to tackle the projects... sometimes they just need to happen. Ha! blessings and hugs ~ tanna

  8. Happy New Year Cheryl. You must be so pleased with the progress you made on the project. Well done.
    May 2017 be just as productive.

  9. You just gave me the perfect New Year's Resolution:

    I will never say no to chocolate...and could be pretty sure of keeping it. At least 95% of the time.

    Happy New Year to you, and thanks for the visits even though I haven't returned half of them lately...and thank so much for the prayers.

  10. Time does fly by fast.I have not made resolutions for years and for much the same reasons you gave.Looking forward to seeing more of your posts.

  11. Happy New Year, Cheryl.
    I'm with you on the new year's resolutions. Why make them only to break them. A set up for failure (particularly the one having to do with chocolate). :D.
    Wishing you all the best in 2017.

  12. Happy New Year to you too, Cheryl!

    Nope, no resolutions here either. We do have plans...for house projects mostly. I know you get that. Congratulations on finishing your Project! It must feel really good!
