A Toast for the New Year 2022


Life is too short to be anything but happy...

It’s the end of another year. 

Where did it go? 

It’s been an overwhelming ride of highs and lows. We’ve all had to rethink how to live with the frenzy of the pandemic – COVID 19.

My lack of blogging has been due to many obstacles. Today, I am presently on my 13th day of COVID. Because this virus is so new, there is no appropriate time frames for when you will get better. This is my second bout with this virus. My first was in January, 2020. Click here for that adventure. 

I’ve had every symptom listed by the CDC. Although, I’m recovering slowly I continue with body aches, difficulty breathing and lack of taste. For those wondering whether or not I am vaccinated – I am. I have been vigilant to stay safe with minimum contact with people and plenty of hadn sanitizing. I believe that if I had not been vaccinated I would have been in the hospital on a ventilator. I have breathing issues due to PE (pulmonary embolisms). I am beginning to see the possibility of a full recovery and am grateful everyday for that. 

However, you want to look at life, the main thing to remember is that you are not alone. 

There is always someone guiding you in whatever form you choose to believe. Take comfort in knowing that the challenges you’re given are because you can endure them; no one gets what they can’t conquer.

Life is rich and abundant. Nature provides us with beauty, joy and visual colors. If you look around, you can see that people add variety to life, too. Observe the many colors, shapes, sizes and personalities of these creations. The variety of what we see, when we really look is what makes life interesting and unpredictable. Life is never boring because you can make it whatever you want it to be. 

Thank you, my blogging friends and followers, for helping to make my last year spectacular.

In Light and Love.

Isadora 🙏🏻


May your COMING YEAR be

filled with MAGIC and DREAMS

and good MADNESS. I hope you

READ some fine BOOKS

And KISS someone who thinks

You’re WONDERFUL, and don’t


write or draw or build or sing or


and somewhere in the next year,

      I HOPE YOU

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

    • Happy New Year, Janet. Thank you for your thoughtful words. I’m doing whatever my body dictates. When I have a spurt of energy I try to manage my daily chores. When I feel rest is needed I do that because it will get me the energy I’m missing. Patience seems to be the best avenue to follow. Unfortunately, I don’t seem to have a lot of patience. Perhaps, my lesson to learn in 2022. Please stay safe … here’s hoping you have a wonderful year ahead. Blessings, Isadora 🙏😎

    • I’m isolating and resting while trying to heal. I believe this COVID requires plenty of self-care. I hope you stay safe. Have a wonderful year of new adventures. Thank you for your kind words … Isadora 😎

      • I had a Covid alert last night from shopping on Wednesday. I am over careful and stay away from people as much as I can. Luckily I live in isolation anyway with nature.
        Plenty of people free adventures for sure Isadora. Hope you can at least feel somewhat better later this year so you can enjoy 2022 🙂

        • It’s difficult to know where you can get this virus. I’ve been as careful as one can be but it still crept in again. We all need to wear our masks, vaccinate and be respectful of distancing. Do continue to be vigilant. Sending healing prayers for you and your family. 🙏🏻
