Thanks to Mother Pie for including me in pondering what I'm still doing:

Still working for the same woman who hired me over 20 years ago

Still procrastinating about my sewing

Still wondering what I'm really meant to be doing

Still glad I moved South when I did

Still glad I haven't culled anything from my cookbook shelf; if I do, they go in a pile until I can stand it no longer, and return them to their shelf

Still cherishing memories, and finding I don't need physical prompts to jar them as often as I used to

Still wishing I were travelling, and the euro were on parity with the dollar

Still hoping for government that does what it's supposed to, on all levels

Still practicing yoga, for which I am truly thankful

Still grateful I have my little family, and we like being with each other, even in the midst of teenagedom

Still happy D is the driving instructor

Still wondering why fashion trends and I seem to have gone in two different directions.

Still looking forward to another year here!

Thanks, Hattie, for the prompt!

"Still wondering what I'm meant to be doing" -- boy, that's the truth and you said it. I love the wisdom and honesty and realness that you express in your stills. Yoga? I'm trying!

Maybe 2008 will be the year that the euro and the dollar reconcile and you can get some of that travelling in!
Happy New Year!

I'm still doing most of the stuff I've always done. I don't think I will ever be in fashion-I have to be comfortable first.

Yes, wouldn't it be something if the government did what it's supposed to? We can only hope this year's election will bring positive change. Happy new year to you and yours!
