good-byes and hello's
Here we sit, on 2010's last day, endings and beginnings.
Done with Christmas, counting down the hours to a brand new calendar, excited, and ready for anything, everything, and then some, as the still-frigid morning sun feels like a gift to my solar starved self, reminding me that spring will return in 6,765,660 seconds, that's right, I counted.
I find myself fantasizing about getting kittened up in sequins and cha cha's and painting the town, and then I realize I'm wearing flannel pajama pants [even though they are the fancy, schmancy ones] and I practically need rocket fuel to propel my butt out of the house. So, it should come as no surprise that I'm a stay at home kind of girl when it comes to New Years eve, is there anything better than filling up on good cheer, then only having to walk up the stairs to the bedroom? Still.......
We made impromptu plans for dinner on the last eve of the year, with the promise of lobster tails, champagne and a leisurely stroll down memory lane. We will feast, reminisce, laugh, cry, share a glass of Veuve Clicquot. Toddle home, watch the ball drop and call it a night, a year...it's a wrap. Oh my, 2010 we are trying so hard to let go and say good-bye, but time is passing so quickly? Honestly. This, I could do without.
A mass e-mail sent to friends and family remembered fondly, with wishes and good cheer. A visit to the place I go to [hopefully] offer a tip, share my everyday adventures, thoughts, recipes and the scraps I've picked up along the way. Somewhere between ushering out the old and welcoming the new, it occurs to me to wonder what do other people do during the lull? Me, I organize. Put in order. Arrange. Clear the decks.Whip into shape. Put to rights. Spruce. Tidy up.
I couldn't be more pleased, tickled would be more apt. Really, dude I abhor sounding like a broken record but once again, it really is the little things in life that make me twist and shout. Good times.
