telephone is working again, and so the Internet is accessible.
When the telephone service resumed, the first task was
to call family and friends to assure them that we were
doing well, and have not been affected by flooding.
Flooding is far more worrisome than loss of electric
and telephone service.
2008 has been a very good year. A difficult year in many respects, full of challenges. A good year for me is not one where there are no challenges, it is one where the challenges I face are approachable. Everyone I love had a healthy year, and there is nothing I care about more than the well being of my loved ones. 2008 has been a very good year, perhaps the happiest of my life; the best may be yet to come!
It being New Year's Eve, Attila and I plan on a quiet night in, sitting before a roaring fire. Attila, Mist and I will watch a little television, perhaps play a game of Scrabble and eat heartily.
Mist likes Scrabble. The tiles scatter with such a satisfying skittering, when she jumps onto the board. She loves to see her humans scrambling about, trying to recreate their wordy rows. Mist can create excitement from nothing. She is a very talented cat!
