Happy New Year!

We finally made it! It’s now officially 2013!

Personally, I’m off to a great start. The cold that had me sidelined for the past week seems to have given up in the face of the New Year and is about 80% gone. In my little corner of the world, that’s a fine start.

Feeling better, I got a few things done with my computers and radios. Some of my efforts didn’t work, but at least that means I’m that much closer to getting things set. I now know one more thing that doesn’t work. (Note to self – make note to self about efforts that didn’t work so I don’t repeat them.) Edison claimed he didn’t fail a thousand times, he merely discovered a thousand ways NOT to make a light bulb. If it’s good enough for Tom Edison, it’s good enough for me.

As you might have gathered, I’m not a big one for New Year’s Resolutions. I find there’s always something to try to do better pretty much every day. Here’s my focus for today – It seems like it has been grey, dreary and rainy forever, but a big part of that perception was because I was fighting this cold and didn’t pay attention to the sunny days interspersed with the grey ones. It’s easy to pick and choose things that fit into our mood or state of mind and ignore those that don’t. I’m going to try to notice the good things, like a sunny day, even if I can’t personally enjoy them. So on that note,

Happy New Year, everybody.
