Happy 2010

Happy New Year. It's 8:48 GMT, so many of you are probably just heading to bed. I hope your memories of the night are worth remembering.

Jason just told a squealing Graham, "Don't scream. Our neighbors are still hung over."

For whatever reason, I'm finding it hard to be motivated today. I've spent the last few days clearing out a lot of clutter, which feels really good. But today I really don't want to do much more than read a book or watch a Thin Man movie with Jason.

But the day is beautiful. The red roof tiles across the street look pink with frost. The sky is clear. And it'll be too easy to just laze the day away if I don't get out into it. Or at least laze the day away until the panicked tidy up that will happen an hour before our friends are supposed to arrive for a waffle supper. So, instead, we're going to go for a walk in the woods. It's the sort of memory I want to make for a new year.

I love that about Christmas/New Year's. I've been organizing and tossing things for two days straight.

Happy New Year, Starr.

I am thinking that the walk built a happy memory for you all. :-) Great way to start off the new year!
