Hubby and I opted for the low key, ring in the New Year with the pups and I must say, it has its advantages. No funny head the morning after or fuzzy sweater mouth. I remember the days of New Year's dances, with floor length getup's and Champagne at the twelve o'clock hour. Out on the floor dancing to "Rock Around the Clock" and the rest of the oldies but goodies. They're even older now! Balloons, funny hats and horns. Those times were fun, but if I had to choose at this point in my life, I think eating a bit of lobster and putting my feet up wins hands down. Guess I'm and old fuddy duddy now, but hey, nothing wrong with that!
Now it's back to the real world, the shop and inventory. Those wonderful year end business responsibilities. Usually I dread them but not this year. This year holds a lot of promise and I have a bunch of new, exciting ideas rambling around in my head...I think this just might be the best year yet.
Tonight is the first hook-in of the new year. I look forward to seeing all the familiar faces of my rug hooking family. Finding out about their holidays and hear laughter bouncing off the shop walls. Hopefully the cold won't keep them home. There will be hot chocolate waiting and another year of good times ahead!
