Goodbye 2011

I have had worse years but this one ranks up near the top of bad years. We were so looking forward to retirement and we did finally get to Florida but it was for the most part not a happy year. I stopped blogging back in August right about the time that I learned I'd have to have more surgery on my foot. After that I simply got out of the habit of blogging and found myself updating my life on Facebook. If you only follow me here you missed out on whiny posts about pain, leaky roofs, ceiling repairs and weeks of painting.

Yesterday was my 6th blogiversary but having neglected all of my blogs in 2011 I didn't feel much like celebrating. I'm hoping with a new year will come a new direction for this blog and more consistency for the others.

Here's hoping for a happy and productive 2012!


  1. Here's hoping for a happier and healthier New Year for you! And yes, my friend, please come back to blogging - I miss you... and the wonderful stories you have yet to tell. Best Wishes for 2012.

  2. I wish you a wonderful New Year,full of fun and family. We'll be headed out to New York in the spring, perhaps will see you if you are home when we go.

  3. Wishing you a much healthier and more enjoyable New Year, and hope to read about your research, too.

  4. Happy Blogiversary, and I believe you should are one of the trailblazers, plus you have the popular Apple's Tree blog.

    It's always a joy to read your material, and I hope you feel more like writing in 2012. Also blogging posts can remain for a long time, fb is so temporary (I'm trying to break away).

  5. Wishing you (and all of us) a happy and healthy new year. I'm ready too!

  6. I am glad to see you back, Apple. I hope you are mending, to enjoy your beautiful Florida home!
