New and Improved ...

Well the blog is looking a bit different. I wanted to share that when I first started blogging, my web page background was black ... which I think was a reflection of my mood .... depressed and hopeless. As time passed, I've adjusted the color to brown and now white ... I guess I am seeing a brighter and brighter future.

This blog has been a savior for me because not only has it given me an outlet to work through and share some of my feelings, but it gives me something to do on a regular basis. I've also learnt a few more computer skills ... and I've connected with all sorts of wonderful and supportive people.

Just a bit of catch-up ....

Christmas Eve was spent at my sister A.'s home. She put on a wonderful meal with many of the traditional meatless items of a Ukrainian Christmas Eve. We started with an outstanding borscht soup and followed with fried and baked fish ... salmon, sole and cod, as well as pickled herring. We had perogies, sauerkraut, white beans mashed with onions and garlic, marinated beets and fried mushrooms. There really was too much to remember it all. Very yummy!

For our Christmas Day dinner we joined my other sister D. and her family, and went to the Mayfield Inn for a smorgasbord. Again very tasty.

For the remainder of yesterday we just sat around trying to digest all the food.

I have a feeling today is going to be very similar day.

Merry Christmas.

I like the look of the new blog. I am glad that you are feeling more hopeful and less black.

Health to us both in the new year.

Love Renee
