Just hours away from 2009 at this point. I cannot say that I am sorry to see 2008 head on out the door, more so than in other years. As DJ is known to say, you cannot “wish” your life away but come on, ‘09! Do the best you can with the time you have, I guess. I am still thinking about resolutions and quilting goals for the year. Does one even bother to set some reasonable goals? It does help to have a little direction----like start walking again. Nip some bad habits in the bud---make your bed when you get up and don’t stay in the bathrobe, jammies and slippers for hours in the morning would be a good start, LOL. Quiltwise, I know I want to work on my redwork Santa project this year and start on the Be-Attitudes quilt---maybe one a month of those and pick one UFO or quilt kit to work on. That’s would be do-able if I don’t get bogged down with donation stuff.
The other part? Ah,just to torment Norma a bit. I have gotten a good start on my FAB challenge. There is a bit of applique involved so I have some prep work to do. I am doing this part over a piece of templar so I can turn the edges evenly and then set with a bit of sizing. One down and umpteen to go, LOL.
DJ and I took down the Christmas decorations this morning though I still need to put the wall hangings away which will only take a few minutes. The house looks so naked! I DID leave out the lovely winter plate that Judy gave me as a gift and along with it, a hand painted Christmas card that a friend gave me. Janet had sent them in a frame type card and I had one from last year as well. I’ll get to enjoy that out atop the living room entertainment center on trips back and forth from the kitchen.
Both my boys are napping at the moment though Skyler did manage to squeeze at least one eye open for me. Such a handsome boy, if I do say so, LOL.
Not much else going on today. The sun is out and about 60 today but gusts of wind. There is a U-Haul at one of the houses across the road in back---we have been trying to decide just what is going on there, moving stuff in or out? New Year’s Eve will be quiet---fix a nice dinner and maybe watch a DVD or two. DJ tells me that the 4th of July fireworks that got postponed due to drought and fire potential are on for New Year’s Eve but I doubt we will go. Just take kick back and enjoy the evening with my two boys instead.
Rather than prattle on about nothing, I’ll just wish you the best things possible for 09.
