I really do hope that we all have a happy and healthy and prosperous new year 2009. I am thankful that I have a job in this economy. I am thankful that my husband and kids are gainfully and happily employed, each in their fields. I am thankful for the family reunion we had this last summer, up in Maine. I am thankful for the two kittens who came to live with us this year; they have grown into beautiful and independent young cats and bring us such good laughs. I am thankful for my online friends who have shared so many years of life with me. I am thankful for my “offline” friends, the few but fabulous!
It is snowing on this final day of 2008; I do love the snow and the foot and a half we got two weeks ago was gone by Christmas. I’m extremely happy to have a series of days off with nothing planned other than cooking good food and eating good food and watching a lot of football! Of course, we need to shovel the steps and front walk before it freezes into a sheet of ice, but that will be followed with hot chocolate and espresso, so it will be worth our while.
Happy New Year’s Eve to all and to all a good night.
