Happy New Year !!!!

Sending everyone wishes for a Happy New Year! May your New Year be filled with love, happiness, and peace.

Hubby and I will celebrate at home. He will probably be asleep by the time the ball falls in Times Square. I will watch it on TV - if I can stay awake that long.

I'm hoping I can do a better job of blogging in the New Year. If I made New Year's resolutions that would be at the top of my list. Since I quit making resolutions years ago, I'll just promise to try.

A new Norfolk Island Pine .....


It's hard to believe that Christmas is only two and a half weeks away. I was just getting used to the idea of fall. Luckily, I don't do that much for the Holidays so I'm not stressing out over everything that hasn't been done. I put up a few outside decorations earlier in the week and will probably decorate inside (except for the tree) this weekend. I usually wait until the middle of the month to put up the tree since it tends to be in the way.


I did get a small Norfolk Island Pine to take the place of the giant I gave away. It's only about a foot tall, so I should be able to move it around easily. I wonder how many years it will be before it becomes too large for the house.

We've finally gotten most of the leaves up. I think one more day of raking should be it until time for spring clean-up. We have gotten extremely dry. We only had 1/10 inch of rain in the whole month of November. So far this month we've had less than 1/10 inch. I have some daffodil bulbs that need to be planted, but the ground is so hard I can't dig the holes to plant them. Will it be OK to plant them later?

The clothes basket is overflowing, so I'd better get some in the washer. Housework is never done.
