Dear Readers,

I retired so that life would go by more slowly. 2015 didn’t cooperate.  It’s about to end soon and HELLO, 2016.  What were my resolutions for 2015? I tried to find them and I found one–to write more. Here I am home in Cramer Hill–trying to fulfill my resolution!

According to, there were 5,012 views of my blogs in 2015. I asked my daughter about this number and she said, “Don’t worry, Mom.  Some people probably clicked on your blog by accident.”  Gee, thanks.

2015 proved to be a good year.  My granddaughter, Nora, was born. Frabjous joy! Callooh! Callay!  I didn’t make that up–it’s from Jabberwocky, Lewis Carroll.  It’s a bunch of goofy words, but they seem to sum up the dizzying joy to have a grandchild. How I love her! When she claps, when she smiles, when she high-fives, when she speaks baby talk, when she eats, when she drools, when she breathes…when she does anything…I’m a mess of happiness.

Next, but maybe I should have said this first–Thank God, nothing terrible happened this year to my family. I can’t take that for granted.  You never know. What a blessing to have a normal year with my husband, pets, mom, brothers, daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter!  I’m grateful. Very, very, very.

I look forward to writing more in 2016.  Who know how many more viewers will click on my blog by accident in the New Year!

Love from Cramer Hill,

Marguerite (Wunsch) Ferra
