Running Into December

Welcome to December! It's hard to believe that we are now into the last month of the year. I have no idea where 2021 has gone, to tell you the truth. Sometimes life is a blur.

Now that Thanksgiving is over, we are in a full-tilt run toward Christmas. We put up some, but not all, of our Christmas decorations this past week. (And, just to be clear, by "we" I mean "my wife and granddaughter.") The decorating will continue as we get further along in the month.

I hope the month is off to a good start for you and that you enjoy the tips in this week's newsletter.
