New Year's Wishes


** Happy New Year **

Since the Christmas decorations are still up at my house, I will be spending the first day of 2012 returning them to their storage boxes in the attic.  It's interesting to me how those things that looked so beautiful a few weeks ago are now starting to seem more like clutter.  So it will be nice to spend a leisurely day restoring order to my home.

How was your New Year's Eve? 
For the first time in our entire marriage, we were at home ... just the two of us.  We had talked of going to dinner and a movie with another couple, but one of them wasn't feeling well, so we had dinner out with one of our sons and then came home to watch a movie.  We did watch the ball drop and clink glasses of sparkling cider at midnight. 

As a new year begins, I'd like to wish you all a year of happiness and good health.  I know that some of my blog friends and real life friends are facing difficult things right now and it makes me feel sad.  Please know that I think of you and pray for better days ahead.

With Love,

  6. Dear Kim,
    I want to thank you for your friendship this year. I hope the New Year shines a bright face on you, and it brings you much joy. Last night, me and my husband stayed home and watched a movie too. It was really nice, but I didn't even stay up to ring in the new year! You have been a good blogging friend to me, and I look forward to more of your wonderful posts this year. Oh, I love your snowman HEADER!

    I took down the Christmas decorations today. I like getting things back to normal.

  9. Happy New Year to you! Your day sounds nice and quiet, sort of like ours! Although my son was sick all week and we could not go to church as a family. Hubby stayed home with our son since I had to play the piano. But it was nice when I came home! Enjoy your day!

    I just read your comment in "Happy One's" blog... About your furnace choosing today to quit. Oh my! I wish you well with getting it fixed... SOON! 'Tis awfully cold weather to be without heat.

    Good luck!
