This is the only picture I could find at the moment.....I have no idea where they are on my computer.....craziness! This is when she was in high school...........back in the really old days!!!
My Mother is in the second row 3rd one on the left.....and my Aunt Alice (her sister) is in the top row, first one on the left. My Aunt was older but they were in the same class evidently.
If I did my math right she would be 102 today but she died at the age of 83. This is where she is buried....Evergreen Cemetery......what a peaceful and beautiful view......that's not her grave....but all my relatives are buried there except for the really old generations which are buried out in the country at the old Log Cabin cemetery.
Today I am trying to plan and get ready for the New Year. I think my word for this coming year will be FINISH...last year it was FOCUS and I did better focusing than I had in previous years. Also, there's the first book you read in 2018 and after spending much time on my book lists and reviews etc. I have chosen Outlander by Diana Gambaldon. It is the first book in the series.
This is a clip from Good Reads........
The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of Our Lord...1743. Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life, and shatter her heart. For here James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire—and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

I also plan on staying on top of my series books........I did a terrible job this year on my 2017 Reading Challenge....last year I pledged to read 50 books and I read way more so this year I pledged to read 75 and I have read only 37......sad but true.....I need to read earlier in the day or else I doze off! LOL!
The series I want to read are Harry Potter (I'm on Book #5), Aunt Dimity by Nancy Atherton (book #2) and Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear (book #4). Of course, there will be other books but I want to stay FOCUSED and FINISH these series as there are others I want to read like Louise Penny and Alexander McCall......and I'm sure there's more if I check my never-ending book list! All this planning takes time but I did manage to do some cleaning and some laundry. I hope you had a productive and enjoyable day or a relaxing one or all three!
P.S. It was 14 degrees F when I got up this morning....so much for living in the South!
