My two-week winter break begins today around 1:00 or whenever I decide to leave the office after our holiday luncheon. Then I’m off until January 7. I have nothing much planned other than some visits with friends and — I hope — a lot of writing that has been patiently waiting inside my head to get transcribed.
That’s my way of saying that things are going to be a little quieter here at BBWW for the break. Of course I’ll have my usual Christmas observance and year-end wrap-up and prognostications, but I won’t be getting up at 3 a.m. to do them. I’m also getting ready for a lot of theatre and car show stuff coming up in 2019, not to mention my looming retirement from Miami-Dade County Public Schools next August, so there’s a lot to look forward to and get ready for.
A lot of blogs and sites use the end of the year as a time to shake the can and ask for donations. I’ve never done that — at least blatantly — but if you feel the urge, I won’t stop you. It’s the yellow Donate button on the sidebar.
And what would the break be without a visit from Snowball? He sends greetings from his retirement villa atop my dresser, but here he is from a few years ago when he was decking the halls. What a crazy cat.
