Another fresh new year

Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and  fear, 
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!
- William Arthur Ward

I actually made it to midnight and watched the ball drop, usually I am a sleep as we transition from one year to the next. 

According to folklore one is suppose to enter the new year with full cupboards and all the bills paid.  So we did that.  Supposedly you are to eat pork on new years and the man wants  BBQ pork ribs so we got that covered.  Not that I am superstitious but hey you can’t take any chances can ya?

So what has filled the blank pages of my 2012 life’s book so far?  Well I woke early and spun while the rest of the house slept.  Then my nephew woke up crying because his stomach hurt.  When his parents woke up I sent him and his brother home….and Lysol-ed the heck out the place!!!  Scrubbed the bathroom, stripped the bed and threw the sheets in the washer.  Unbelievably it is a gorgeous New Years Day so the sheets are line drying.  Another load and the blanket was in the dryer, another load and the bedspread went in the dryer.  I can handle getting the common cold but I have a phobia of stomach virus and vomiting. 

Now, I have the ribs on to parboil and a nice pot roast cooking which I will use for roast beef sandwiches for the kids lunches this week.  Yes they start back to school tomorrow.  The man has the day off so we are moving son’s room around.  He has a king size captains bed so it takes some doing…doing meaning man muscles.
Now I am going to spin a little more wool … check out the year long crazy quilt squares they are doing on Holiday Mystery Gift yahoo group…and I downloaded Steven Kings 11/22/63.

How has your new book started?
