New Year's Eve


It has been a brilliant, crisp last day of the year, the sky that particular blue I associate with snow on the mountains and temperatures in the teens or lower. In the past, I have often spent this day scrambling to finish some quilt project or other in order to count it in my tally of accomplishments for the year, or because I simply could not stand to have it linger over into the new year. Although there are several projects I'd hoped to have finished by now, and several small in-process ones that I could have wrapped up today, I simply was not compelled to spend my time that way. It seems to be the story of my year, and I'm content to end it on that note.

Today was for reading in a rocker pulled up in front of the fire, and writing the last of the thank you notes, and taking a walk out in that cold crisp sunny day, and indulging in running a photo through many filters (justified because it is the first step in a project destined as a gift), and catching up with a brother on the phone. I've popped the cork on the champagne, savored my traditional New Year's Eve dinner of chicken enchiladas (don't ask) and am ready to see the old year out.

Tomorrow will be soon enough to assess 2010, look forward into 2011. Happy New Year to you all!

Happy New Year! I had a brownie and an iced mocha and now I'm working a puzzle.
