As I sit here looking out the window at a perfect New Years Day I am filled with a mixture of hope and concern. It certainly has been a hell of a year on many fronts and even though it really is just another day, the beginning of a new year does seem to bring with it a sense of hope. Having said that, 2020 has had more than it’s collection of things I am very thankful for.
The house sitting lifestyle that we have come to enjoy over the last several years depends heavily on the ability to get up and go to whatever location strikes our fancy. And honestly, winter in Canada usually does not strike our fancy these days.
As we look back I can honestly say we are glad it all worked out the way it did in 2020. Aside from the house sitting gig we have secured for the balance of the coming year and being close to home to deal with some pesky health care challenges, there were several other outstanding events we were able to take in.
We were able to finish off the year with a Christmas that certainly was not the one we were hoping for, but we still managed to get in the spirit.
Alas here we are, another year of opportunity in front of us. If all goes well we will spend the majority of the year in our current location then head off to Prince Edward Island to experience our third Canadian winter in a row in a different spot. After that, who knows?
All the best to all of you and may the New Year bring whatever you need to help you be happy.
