Trying to forget 2020? Oh yes, same here. But DON’T forget that there were some good things that happened to us this year too! Let’s put our heads together and come up with a list of small but good things to make us smile as 2020 passes – thank goodness – into history.
What was your small but good thing this year? Do tell! It will do everyone good to see some points of light!
Sharon from Modsupport learned to make masks. (Who would have thought that would ever be a good thing?). Seenie got into sourdough bread baking, and she’s got the waistline to prove it. TJ made his sister very happy by doing some home improvements for her.
Share your little glimmer on a reply below.
From all of us, warm wishes to you and yours in the coming year and always.
I dedicated myself to fitness and got back my pre-EM body. I’m in phenomenal shape! I also learned to cook some new recipes, since that wasn’t happening without an impeccable nutritional plan.
Also, I bought a car yesterday on New Years Eve. Yay!
Sounds like you made some really good changes there! And congrats on the new car. That’s always very exciting!

Yea, I’m a virtual vegetarian now. It wasn’t planned, just that plant based meat alternatives replaced what meat I was eating almost entirely. I also learned to cook tofu. So, that happened.
I am really enjoying the Americas Cup racing here in New Zealand. You can watch it free on YouTube. The preliminary Prada cup starts this weekend. Italy versus U.K. Sadly, USA has been eliminated. See the capsize on YouTube.
You probably don’t want to know that I really enjoyed 2020. COVID has been kept out of New Zealand community. I have been visiting a lady with advanced Parkinson’s disease and another lady whose son committed suicide. This helps me keep my suffering with EM in perspective. Also we lived in Niger, Africa for some time. When we first started 30,000 children each day were dying of easily preventable causes, worldwide. This has now dropped to 20,000, still too high but at least in the right direction. If the war in Yemen stopped, this would help a lot.
I am enjoying longer walks around my community in Santa Fe, NM. I am for the first time in my life learning the names of plants and birds and taking joy in that! Like many, I have also deepened my cooking skills thanks to the pandemic. I plan to learn some African dishes this month!
Wow Carter! I thought you were sounding pretty up-beat these days. Nice ride. You’ll have to tell me what to do with toful that’s tasty. I’m afraid I’ve never really caught on to cooking that, and I’m a reasonable cook.
Hi. You probably saw we retained the Americas Cup. You can see it all on YouTube for free. Over 6 tonnes of yachts sailing at sometimes over 50 knots. Crewing for a Air NZ pilot tomorrow going out 12 miles for a fish. He does the Los Angeles run.
Trevelyan’s kiwi fruit and avocado pack house taking us by bus to Field days at Hamilton on Thursday. You can check out these on the internet. The Field days are the largest in Southern Hemisphere, over 1000 exhibitors. Hope my feet hold up, I will be pacing myself and sitting a lot. People watching but at least a nice day out hopefully.
