Happy New Year to one and all!
My first post for 2009...hmmm...what shall I write. I could write about my resolutions for 2009 or my sadness of days gone by or for the future of 2009. I think instead I will write one day at a time, a little of the past and a little of the future. The past is that I slept in bit this morning. Something I have wanted for awhile now as The Hubby usually makes so much racket that I can't stay asleep. This morning he actually slept in and was very, very quiet when he left the room. Nice. I slept till almost 9 am this morning. I didn't wake with a headache, which I should have with a whole bottle of Mondoro Asti and two classes of almond champagne in my system. I took ibuprofen and drank a huge glass of water before I laid my head down and so slept like a baby. We brought in the new year in town this year instead of the cabin. We usually go there and have a progressive dinner with our cabin as the main course but I opted out when I heard the guest list was 36. No thank you! We spent it in town with some cabinites and had a grand time. There were just 5 couples and it was wonderful. We grilled steaks, popped corks, and laughed the evening away with friends. What a nice evening. It almost wasn't though as we were leaving the house The Hubby's cell phone rang and it was a customer whose furnaces and hot water tank were not working. We had installed a new generator for her in case of next ice storm and finished the job this week. Well, somehow either she had a breaker trip or the pilot lights were not re-lit or something but of course being the owner and boss his cell phone rang on New Year's Eve. It never fails. We were lucky that she had half heat in her huge home and was able to wait for this morning till he was able to get by. Whew!
Today I have taken my shower, no makeup and no blow dryer thank you. I will be au-natural today. I feel so much better, let's just hope I stay that way for awhile. The black-eye peas are simmering on the stove for tonight's dinner. I just emailed B&B2 and told them we were grilling pork chops and having black-eye peas if they were interested. They're probably still in bed. I have sent an email New Year greeting to A back in LA. Miss her already but know she had a great time last night.
I smell the black-eye peas simmering away on the stove and the dryer is going round and round with The Hubby's socks and underwear. I haven't turned the TV on today, instead enjoying the sounds of my quiet house on this new day of the new year. Most of the morning I've spent reading many New Year blogs and now it is my time to insert my first entry of 2009. I will also crack open a new journal and fill it with handwritten thoughts that I many not necessarily share here. Happy New Year to all.
