        There came a time when I had finished one of the books I had started when Mama was living with us. She always encouraged me and if she knew I had set a goal for completing a chapter or even a page, she held me to it. But I dragged my feet and actually put the manuscript away for a couple of years and I suppose she forgot about it.

        With all the cold weather and snow, January seemed to be the month of staying indoors. To combat the boredom of being cooped-up, I’ve rounded up some exciting events to attend this month.
        One of the events I’d like to go to is at the The Tamke-Allen Observatory in Harriman. The observatory hosts free Public Stargazes on the first and third Saturday of each month. The next one will be held on Feb. 3, from 7:30-11 p.m.
