Happy Glorious New Year!

Our celebration will be quiet this year.  It usually is.  We are having the Sewing Bee over and we'll watch movies and have - my favorite thing about New Year's from my childhood - appetizers for dinner.

As I tell my students at the end of the day, especially if they've had a bad one, "Tomorrow's another day. We'll start all over then."  Every day is a new chance, a new opportunity and the same goes for a brand new year.  Do I make crazy resolutions?  Sometimes, but what I like is the chance to dream and hope and plan for the new year as I reflect on the old.  Will I be able to accomplish everything I dream of?  Probably not, but it's the potential that keeps me going.

So what do I have up my sleeve for the new year????  Well, I'm just going to have to be coy and say you'll see, you'll see, but I can say I'm pretty sure it's sayonara to the cherry wallpaper in the kitchen.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll come by to visit often in the New Year!

Thank you Graphics Fairy for the lovely picture!
