As I've gotten older, though, having this date for my very own, I am able to wipe the slate clean for the coming year, and truly apply those New Year's resolutions to an open landscape! And I am ready! Once again this year, I will make all sorts of resolutions such as finish projects I start, become a capable knitter, a more assiduous weeder....but most of all, I resolve to enjoy it all! Right now, I have enough projects to last me through age 100 and I'm not at all adverse to the thought of living that long. Quite the contrary! My philosophy is definitely in the "shoot-for-the-moon" category! Why not?! So far good health has wrapped me in her protective cloak, and I live a wonderful life! I don't mean to be completely idiotic and pollyanna, but I do subscribe to the philosopy that life is what you make it, so make it fun!
BTW, I captured the above moon shot last year on December 31, 2009.
And another gem from my Dad, who decided that his cake should be decorated "energy efficient..." Indeed mine will be: six candles and a 60-watt bulb!
And if I could have just one present for my birthday, you know what it would be? High Speed Internet!!! Out here JOTOLR we would ascend above the level of molasses in January! How sweet that would be!
Thank you all for visiting this week! I've loved every minute of it. And, you know what? After nearly a year of posting and responding, I've come to love you as family!
Have a lovely New Year's weekend! See you Monday!
