By Lois Lumbra — Happy New Year!!! What a great beginning, nice weather, the sun is so warm this afternoon. I will go out later and enjoy some of the sunshine. OOPs, the sun just went behind a cloud and it got dark very suddenly. (As I finished, the sun is back out, and I’m going to be out there also) I’m back, that wind was so cold, brrrrr!! I took a walk and thankfully I had my turtle-fur scarf wrapped around my face.
