2010 is bound to be a happy and prosperous year for all of us being that the blue moon fell on New Year's Eve! At least that's what I'm counting on. Mine started off great. I went to friend Steve's house for supper. Steve has a farmhouse south of New Glarus and the ride down was beautiful with the full moon glowing on the snow in the fields. Friend Joey made us a delicious steak dinner complete with baked potatoes, green salad and home made gingerbread. It was a veritable feast! They sure do know how to treat a girl right!
Joe has three Boxers and Steve has a Golden Retriever mix. They are all super friendly, sweet and cuddly. I would include a photo but I was under the pile of them for most of the night. Better than a woobie any day!
We watched the ball drop in NYC and since Steve and I are both from the East Coast we counted that as the start of 2010. Sorry Joey. It was a wonderful night of friends, a feast and furbabies. I can't think of a better way to welcome a New Year. I wish it didn't happen only 'once in a blue moon'. Get it!?!?
Today was spent babysitting Mike and Hef's dog Panga. She is such a sweetie and she and Ben played and cuddled all day, so his New Year started off right as well. I mostly snuggled in with my woobie and read all day. If you're looking for a great book, 'The Day The Falls Stood Still' by Cathy Marie Buchanan is a good one. It's fiction but based on facts of the early days of electrical power plants on the Niagara River. Very interesting story.
At any rate, Day one comes to a close and all is well with the world. Let's hope the rest of 2010 follows suit! Happy New Year!
