Happy New Year! What’s on Your Plate for 2020?

Just a short note to wish you all – my friends and readers, a Happy New Year filled with all good things, love, and good health.


New Year resolutions


Honestly, I’m not sure where the year has gone. It seems it was just September, life is going a tad too quickly it seems, a good reminder to be grateful for every day we wake up to a new one. I can’t quite track where this past year has gone and all that transpired. However, I do remember spending the first 2 glorious months of the year in Mexico, and although not quite for 2 months this coming, year, I’m looking soooooo forward to returning there again.

I expect January to fly as I seem to have an ever-growing and lengthy to do list before our February winter jaunt. I’ve also just about completed first draft to a new book I’ve been working on this past year, and that should take me well into the spring or early summer to ready for publication, considering I will be leaving it for marination while away. So that’s my first half year planned, lol. As for the rest—I’ll leave it up to destiny!


Happy New Year!

  1. Hi Debs, Trust the turkey, or whatever, went down well and you had a jolly and or restful celebration. And Hanukkah, if you celebrate. We are respectful, but don’t celebrate. I always enjoy reading your words and seeing your cheeky jokes on Sally’s site… My ambition is to live through 2020 (am glueing perch) and see our eldest son reach 60….(help!) in August and Eric’s sister celebrate 90 in June!! Also, hope to finish my book about the Dombrowski family. (Please don’t hold your breath…) Here’s wishing you all you wish for yourselves in the coming year. You’re doing a grand job! Hugs, peace and love. Joy and Eric xxx


    1. Hi Joy! You are just that, pure Joy! You better be seeing a lot more than 2020 Missy! You just keep yourself and that creative brain of yours active. You are a breath of sunshine everywhere you visit!
      Thank you so much for your most beautiful message here Joy. I wish you, Eric and your loved ones a most beautiful new year with only, love, joy, and GOOD HEALTH! If you have that, you have the world. Big Canadian hugs and love being sent your way my sweet friend! ❤ xoxo

    As to what is on our plates? well, we hope nothing much, as like you we leave destiny to do the deciding.. And just enjoy each day with the gratitude it brings..
    After being so poorly both of us in December we are just thankful for feeling brighter and better..

    Sending Loads of LOVE and Huge HUGS my dear, dear friend..

    1. Thank you so much Sue. I’m glad you had a quiet, peaceful New Year’s, we did the same and it was just lovely. Hopefully a sign of a peaceful year ahead. Yay us taking our deserved getaways. Time to regenerate and reinforce. May the world come together as mother earth is depending on us all. Happy, healthy, joy and peace is what we all strive for. Love and blessings received and sent more to you in return. Hugs and more sent your way! ❤ ❤


  6. Hi Debby – happy new year … and gosh you’ve got lots planned for 2020 – all I can say is very good luck … and so pleased you’re getting a chance for a holiday in between! Love the Wordle ….

    I still have to sort my life out – but it’s coming together … and I cannot get stressed about it – lots going on and with friends (and foes!!) around … the world carries on …

    Good luck for all things in 2020 – cheers Hilary


    1. Hi Hilary. Thank you and Happy New Year to you! I think this may well be a year of reckoning and big decisions for many of us! May they all be positive outcomes!!!! Best to you too. ❤


  7. Sounds like fun! We have some of the same grandiose plans for 2020 that we had for 2019–tempered with , we hope a better sense of reality based on the last one. My New Year’s Post is coming soon to a blog near you. 🙂


  8. Happy New Year with much ❤ and many blessings to you both, my unicorn buddy. Here's to your February jaunt, your new book, your wonderful blog and whatever adventures the universe has in store for you in this revolution around the sun. ❤ xXx ❤ always x


  9. Deb, it sounds like you have the first part of the year well sewn up – may it all run smoothly and without stress – be that customer services or health issues!
    Looking forward to this next year, may we all have the success and happiness we deserve ❤


    1. Deb, I’ll just say amen to that! You had your whirlwind of a year last year. I’m afraid this is mine. I’ll keep you posted when I find my direction. ❤


  10. Happy New Year, my memoirist and blogging friend. You’re on the right track as always! You know, the good thing about time flying so fast is that you’ll be sitting at that pool, baking in the sun with a cocktail in your hand and a sarong wrapped around your waist in no time!!!

    As for our 2020, that is – currently – totally up in the air. It will all depend on a new development… Honestly, just the next week is planned, as Mark flies back to Boston and I remain in Northern Florida with Maya. That’s it! 🙂
