Merry Christmas from SIGIS!
It's been a lovely Christmas season Chez SIGIS; we did the family thing last weekend and my grandson - 2-1/2 years old - is a joy. So cute!
We have a few more activities before we hunker down for the day tomorrow and unwind, relax, and rejuvenate. Oh, and I will, of course, watch A Christmas Story marathon as tradition dictates.
Looking back, it's been a very nice year and we've been truly blessed.
Going forward into 2015, I hope to do better in keeping this blog updated - I know we've talked about this before, but the political landscape right now is so horrible, so beyond horrible, that I just haven't been able to blog politics too much. I did celebrate the defeat of Mary Landrieu this year, which was nice. I may be able to pick back up with politics as the ever-lengthening presidential election season heats up but it will depend on the candidates. For now, let's just say NO MORE BUSHES.
NO MORE PRESIDENTIAL DYNASTIES.
I will be very, very busy in 2015 trying to finish the book I'm working on. I've spend almost a year doing the research and that is not yet complete, but close. Even still, there are sections that I can work on in the mean time and have already written a measly 10,000 words. A drop in the bucket. But, my goal is to have a manuscript by the fall of 2015. We shall see. The process certainly eats up all blogging time, though, thus my extended breaks between posts.
Steve and I both have become involved with the animal rescue community here in Shreveport-Bossier and are finding that very rewarding. We both hope to do more with that in 2015. The first item on the agenda will be Justice for Braveheart -- the jury trial for Braveheart's abuser will be in January. I can't fathom why this person's attorney is letting this case go to a jury trial so this will be interesting. What jury in the world would look at those pictures and let this man off? He has no defense. He already admitted everything. I can't imagine what the defense will be.
We still have not heard anything from the SPD on the investigation from October.
So, I'm off to enjoy the holiday and hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. I know it's a difficult time of year for many of us, myself included, but I'm finding that new traditions and new celebrations help.
