Happy New Year!

Well, here it is, the last day of 2008, which for us in our corner of the world turns out to be an extremely snowy day. We're having a bit of a snowstorm - there were nine new inches of snow down by 9:00 this morning (according to the trusty Weather Channel) and many more inches expected to come down between now and midnight. This all means that we are going to be spending New Year's Eve safe and sound, tucked up and warm at home, just the three of us (plus the cat and fish, of course).

Tomorrow, we will dig our way out and face a new year, hopefully a year of changes for the better for our family, country and world. I shan't go into New Year's Resolutions any more than to say I'm renewing my eternal Top Two: to get into better (or really, *any*) shape and to stop biting my nails. Yeah, pretty pathetic that I am now 37 years old and I still bite my nails...

Anyhow, for this New Year's Eve day, to all my friends out there in the blogosphere, I say

And here's a hand, my trusty friend,

And gie's a hand o' thine;
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet

For auld lang syne

Here's a cup o' kindness raised to you and yours from me and mine! Happy New Year, everyone!

(PS: I'm not sure what beverage is in your cup o' kindness and feel free to pour yourself whatever you want - mine is a Shirley Temple, heavy on the grenadine, which is why it's so vividly red!)

Here's to a shiny, bright New Year!
Much happiness and good luck to you!

In order for me to be up at midnight, I'll have a coffee!

Happy New Year! I hope 2009 brings you lots of laughs:) (and a little less snow)

Well....If I could be celebrating with an alcoholic beverage, it would be a great glass of red wine--a cab-merlot blend of some sort.

But, since I can't, sign me up for the shirly temple. I always did love the cherry garnish!

Mine's a Milo this New Years day, and that's a bit like Ovaltine, but malty. Happy New Year to you and your family. I am so glad to have met you and all my other bloggy friends this past year.

So, was there enough snow to give all those Source customers free jewelry?

Happy New Year!

I couldn't find any Chinese food here in Florida, so I had to settle for slices of pizza on the street at 11 PM. :-(
