Happy New Year 2021

 Hello friends and fellow bloggers,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. For most of us it was much quieter and more restful than usual due to the travel restrictions during the ongoing pandemic.

I took a break from almost all social media over the Christmas holiday though I did sneak in a bit of blog reading and commenting here and there.  I'm glad I took a break because I was a bit tired from all the activities of December.

I'm actually still on break as I'm now working on a project which takes a lot out of me. I get easily distracted and I don't want distractions so I can get this thing out of the way as quickly as possible.  A lot of detail work is involved but once I'm finished, I will be able to return to blogging and visiting your blogs. But I wanted to make sure to stop by and say how much Christmas food was appreciated by the Kenyans who received it. Thank you for prayers and for the one who gave toward this cause.  It truly was a blessing. There are still other needs if you are wanting to donate. Rather than repeat them here, you can read more at the bottom of this post (click the link) if you like.

I also wanted to stop by and wish you all a very Happy New Year.  I hope that the new year will be kind and gentle and help us all recover from 2020 which took a lot out of us all.  We had to learn new ways of living, working, relating and being. Some lost loved ones.  I even know fellow bloggers and former bloggers who themselves got very sick with the dreaded Covid and thankfully are now in recovery.  Sadly some of this hardship will follow us into 2021 despite the readiness and availability of vaccines.  Even so I think people feel much more hopeful at the moment with the release and approval of several vaccines.  Please do continue to take good precautions as you go about your daily lives.  It will take time to vaccinate the world at large and to see how people react afterwards.



I'll be 'seeing' you soon. 

Love and hugs. xx


  1. Hello Penny,
    I wish you and your family all the best in 2021, a very happy and healthy New Year!

  2. A very Happy New Year to you too. Let us hope we will soon be vaccinated and by fall life can be less stressful. Fear of Covid at my age is real. Buddy and hubby too. A whole world hit hard. But many like you have done well to follow restrictions so here we are hoping and praying for a renewed better time ahead. Hugs to you too.

  3. Happy New Year Penny!...wishing you all the best in 2021...
    ~Have a lovely day!

  4. A happy new year to you, Joy, and joy be with you.

  5. Sending all good new years wishes to you, Penny, and much joy and good health in 2021!

  6. Wishing you peace, joy, and good health in the new year.

  7. Happy New Year to you too, Penny! I think we've all needed a bit of a break from social media. I've been in and out, mostly because we were still celebrating belated Christmases with extended family and friends. I think we are all caught up now and I can begin to relax a bit. Still have to take down the decorations, but I'm in no rush. I hope and pray you will have a blessed and healthy New Year. That is my prayer for all of our friends. Yes, we still need to be careful and diligent to do what is best for all. It will take time for the vaccinations to take effect even when and if everyone gets a vaccination. I pray we will see some positive results and encouraging news soon. Take care my friend.

  8. Dear Penny, Happy New Year to you too! A Healthy and Joy-full 2021 with all the blessings of the LORD in Yeshua.
    May the LORD and SAVIOR YESHUA bless all of our nations and the God of Israel shine His face and grace and Peace upon all, and may may this be the year of SALVATION, Healing, and Deliverance for all those who have not yet said Yes to Salvation in the One who is Life. God bless you! Much Love!♡

  9. Happy New Year and keep safe. We will all be here when you return, though I am thinking I also need a break!! Cheers Diane
