Happy New Year

Yet another year gone by and once again I question "where did the time go?"  So much not done.  So much missed.  So many thoughts and feelings come, gone and lingering.  While this year was better than the last, there is much room for improvement in so many ways.  Most ways, really.   I look forward to the end of 2010 for many reasons and hope that 2011 brings much more enrichment and pleasure to the lives of K and  myself.  If life is a circle, I am hoping to be at the top sometime soon again.

Thanks to an error in dates with our New Years crew (he thought they had a wedding on New Years Eve.  Oops.  It is New Years Day) we are not doing the annual loud and crazy laughter night in Glen's garage full of yummy food, silly card games and great friends.  We made secondary plans with another set of friends for a low key, quiet evening at their place alas those plans seemed to fall through when the couple got another offer so it is just K and I.  I was a little bummed at first but am actually quite thankful for it now.  Just him and I.  The way life intended, I think.  We are going to do some reno pricing this morning followed by a movie.  The afternoon will be spent with a short nap since I have been up since 1:30am and it is now 7am with a late night ahead.  Our evening will consist of a trip to Upper Canada Village where we will have supper and enjoy the spectacular light displays before heading home for a quiet evening.  Our New Year will be rung in quietly.  Likely with him asleep on the couch, in front of the television and me creating in my scrapbooking room.  A little sad sounding, I know but really a perfect evening and the best way to ring 2011 given my word choice for the year.  That being said ...

... another thought that crosses my mind this time of year is Ali Edwards 'One Little Word.'  This will be the third year that I am doing it started it and am really, truly going to try not to lose track of it this time.  My first year was 'baby' and well ... we know how that ended.  More heartbreak.  2010 saw me embracing the word 'change' in the beginning months and then losing sight for most of the rest of the year before finding my way again in September.  The chanage has been slow but it has been there and I look forward to working towards change in 2011.  Fortunately 'change' ties in with my 2011 word but, as always, I will wait until January 1st to share it.

In the meantime, please enjoy the holiday and embrace the friends and family you are celebrating with regardless of how big the party or how quaint the gathering.  Here's to great memories and a wonderful journey for 2011.  Happy New Year.  xxooxxoo
