Happy New Year

Eating potato chips and drinking left-over virgin punch I saw the new year come in by watching the ball drop in New York.  Then off to bed shortly after midnight,  just dropping off and I heard "bang" then another and another,  thinking the worse I got up to see what was causing these sounds, only to find that neighbours were letting off fireworks, which continued on 'til 1:00a.m. 

Slept in a bit, then jumped on those scales as I had made a resolution, AGAIN, to eat healthy and get more exercise, hoping to drop a few pounds in the process. OMG a few pounds!!!, where did all that extra baggage come from?   After re- reading my first sentence I believe I found out where some of it came from.

Taking all of my Christmas decorations and tree down today, everything looked so festive, but now all the magic has gone.  It will be so nice to get the house back in ship shape and get into a regular routine again.  Hoping the weather will be a bit milder on the weekend so that I can take down the outside lights.  The wiring is under quite a bit of snow so hope it has been insulated somewhat and is not frozen into the ground.

Also, plan on getting into the sewing room this afternoon and finish a secret Santa gift for our quilt guild dinner and gift exchange next week.  I have also been collecting fabric to make quilts for my three children and their spouses, as, shame on me, I have not made any for them yet. 

At the present time, it is cloudy, no wind and with very light snow flakes drifting down, just as snow is suppose to fall, as per the movies.  The temperature is just below the zero mark C, I wish every Winter day was like today, I could cope with this.

Well, this is not getting the job done, is it........

Sounds like a perfect way to celebrate the new year!

We've got to take our decorations down when we return from Cornwall.

Hope the weather is kind to you.
