New Years Day - 2008

Year 2008 is here in all its glory!! We have bright sunshine, almost freezing temps, birds feeding at the feeders, squirrels running through the trees, a warm comfortable house, and each other. Yep, it is going to be another good year.

We would both have slept through the change of year had it not been for someone several houses down the street shooting firecrackers. I would have never heard the firecrackers but the cat did - and she was not amused! I woke up when what felt like a twenty pound of sand hit my back and started trying to tunnel under me. That was one upset cat! She and I 'talked' it over and decided the boom-boom monster couldn't hurt us. We went back to sleep and dreamed happy dreams - at lest I did. Harry slept through the excitement. Bless his heart, a freight train wouldn't wake him if it ran through our bedroom.

Wish I had some words of wisdom to share for the new year but my word reserve seems depleted this morning. I'm just thankful that we are all well and relatively happy in our lives as they are now. I hope all of you feel the same and are looking forward to this fresh new year.

Have another cup of coffee with me and let's be thankful for this day.

Big Man slept through the New Year too, Mary. He was snoring like a freight train!

I'm looking forward to another year of wonderful posts from you!

Happy New Year!
It may have been Armando and me shooting fireworks last night ;)
Armando has been wanting to shoot fireworks every holiday and last night on the way back from Huntsville, we stopped by a stand. I had not done that since I was a little girl and the fireworks were beautiful. Mom and Dad got home just in time to see them after work and Armando and I nearly froze our booties off waiting for them to drive up with sparklers in hand. LOL But it was fun.

((big hug))
