My New Favorite Room

There have been changes, large and small, in most households I imagine, with so many folks working from home since last March.  The same is true at our house.  I have loved having Mr. Forest Manor working here at home -- it just makes the house feel less empty.  He works in the back of the house, and I mostly stay in the front, so I try not to bother him during the work day.  However, it's just nice to know he's there.  One of the changes that has come about here is a small thing, but such a difference for me.

Hello Dear Ones!  Are you having a good January so far?  I hate that it's been two weeks since I last posted, but I've had after-Christmas cleanup to do here.  What a good feeling to get things put back in their places until next year!  Hal installed some new shelves for me in two of our closets back in the summer, and they are proving to be oh-so-handy.     
How have you been keeping yourself occupied in this winter season?  As I mentioned above, I've been putting things away, as well as sweeping and dusting.  I've also been reading.  I mean to start keeping a list of what I read each year because sometimes just looking back to the previous year, I can't always remember exactly what I read during that time.  I'm convinced that part of the reason for this is that time flies by so quickly anymore, something I think occurred just a year or two ago actually happened five years ago.  Does that happen with you too?

Top Ten Posts For 2020

Hi folks.  Aren't we glad this difficult and challenging year is drawing to a close?  Obviously, Covid 19 has been the big talking point, but I know many people have had difficulties not related to the virus.  My husband's aunt had cancer and died from a stroke before her treatments started.  One of the bloggers I like to read, Mike, who writes A Bit About Britain, was sick earlier in the year.  Believe it or not, I'm still having lingering effects from the Bell's Palsey I had back in June.  In fact, I've just been online looking at exercises to strengthen my facial muscles, which don't seem to have fully recovered.  And sadly, both of our families know people who have died from Covid 19.  Needless to say, we're all hoping for a better year in 2021!   
Out of curiosity, I thought I would look at Google Analytics to see what my most popular posts were this year.  What peaked your interest the most on House at Forest Manor in 2020?  According to Google Analytics, these are your ten favorite posts this year.

After Christmas

Well, we've had a nice, peaceful day today (and yesterday, too).  These quiet days are always a welcome respite after the hustle and bustle of the Christmas holiday.  I realize there was a lot less hustle and bustle this year for most of us, but even so, it can still be tiring.

Merry Christmas 2020

Merry Christmas Dear Ones!  I'm just barely squeezing in under the wire this year.  I was so busy all day yesterday and today -- no time to write even a short post.

A Christmas Advent Wreath

Only three full days now until Christmas Eve -- are you ready?  I'm never ready until the last minute, and this year is no different than any other, in that respect.  😉  Yesterday, we drove to a church that's about twenty minutes from our house to see this advent wreath that my mother-in-law told us about.
