January Monthly News

Welcome to the January edition of the monthly news!

First of all, Happy New Year!!

My word for the year is HOPE.

With 2020 in the rearview mirror, I can say that I hope this year is better than last. I hope I don't lose anymore loved ones. I hope my friends, family and community can be safe. I hope the world can unite to combat the virus.

We're off to a great start with the presidency changing hands. As a Canadian watching from the sidelines, I am hopeful for a better relationship between our countries. I mean, we still gotta share this continent after all. Let's make the best of it!

Winter blues have set in. They're real folks.
Do any of you feel blue during the colder months?

Reading-wise I am doing well. I am on pace so far.
How are your reading goals going?

We're still under lockdown here, which means we have a 'stay-at-home' order. You are only supposed to go out for essentials, but the world still seems like an awfully busy place for being locked down.
What's it like where you are?

Let's bring on February! The month of love. 💓

  1. I think HOPE is a very good word for 2021. We really need this after last year's difficult times. I think people have more hope for this year.
    Happy you are on your reading goals. My year started very well with 12 books for January. I fulfilled my challenges as well so very pleased.
    I am in Austria for the time being and here is a lockdown as well. Hopefully, they will open parts of society on Monday 8 February. Mostly we shop for food and take walks.
    Wish you a good reading year and a hopeful 2021.

    1. Thank you, and all of the best to you as well!

  2. Glad you are starting off the year hopeful. Hope your February is full of blessings!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
