One of my favorite "Winter" photos. Daughter Serena sent it to me two winters ago. :)
You notice I'm not calling them "Resolutions." I'm using the word "Intentions" instead.
Yes, yes, it's a weaker term, wishy-washy, whatever. But the word Intentions doesn't carry with it the same judgmental quality as the word Resolutions. I know. . .only people like writers who work with words all the time would make that distinction. What can I say? We writers are a strange bunch, granted. After all, we walk around looking normal, while we have all sorts of different people dancing through our heads.
But, back to the subject of this post----Intentions/Resolutions. Mine are very simple this year. I intend and/or resolve to save some money and NOT go on a cruise this winter. I fell in love with cruising a couple of year's ago as a wonderful way to escape some of Winter's harsh cold weather during either January or February. I have really enjoyed my previous cruises, especially last year's February 2-week cruise in the Eastern Caribbean. The ship went to of my favorite places plus all of the other islands I had not reached yet. I would dearly love to cruise the Western Caribbean, but that will have to wait until next year. Having been an accountant and CPA, I am able to "summon" enough will power to accomplish my money-saving goals when necessary. Thank goodness.
So-----this year, I am going to escape for a week down to Florida to visit my dear childhood friends who always escape the Winter Cold of the Metropolitan No.Virginia/DC/Maryland area and go to their second home in Florida. For years, I've been promising them I would visit sometime during the winter, but I never have. I think this is the year. I've always enjoyed every trip I've ever made to Florida, whether it's spring, summer, or fall. So, I imagine I will enjoy a winter trip as well. Do any of you Readers "escape" Cold Weather during the Winter? If so, where do you go? Tell us. :)
