What are you doing New Year's Eve?

If you're anything like our family, you're curling up with a knitting magazine and taking a wee winter's nap.

It's always a marathon at our house--will we make it til midnight? At what time can we start getting ready for bed? How crummy will we feel tomorrow? Etcetera etcetera.

Tim is making dim sum tonight...I'm sure there will be pot stickers and spring rolls. Probably some Shwetty Ball ice cream or perhaps some vanilla with Fermat Branca sauce. And cookies cookies cookies, so that sugar buzz should keep us going til about 10:30 or so.

We'll be having a "Downton Abbey" marathon--we have four episodes left on Netflix and we also have a bunch of 'The Wire" so we'll be entertained.

It's been a tough year, but as Tim was mentioning on our walk this morning, it all ended up well. We're all alive and relatively happy, healthy and sane, and we're looking forward to the next chapter of our lives unfolding in 2012.

Resolutions? I'll steal from this morning's "Mutts" comic and say to "Be Here Now"--to spend more time in the present and less time wallowing about the past and worrying about the future. We'll see how that works out.

Happy New Year to you and yours!

No great plans this year. We have a busy day tomorrow since everyone will be at our house once again. I'm going to bake a turtle cheesecake for tomorrow and do a little knitting.

Have a blessed and Happy New Year!
