Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Woke up today after an ice storm -- Ice coated tree branches glittering in the early morning sunshine. It all will melt soon, leaving us with the usual winter bare brown branches. Already I'm looking forward to spring.

The 10-year-old went to a friend's New Year's Eve party. She wasn't happy when we arrived early to take her home. But I wanted to get her home before the roads got too icy. We played Othello and then she made friendship bracelets out of embroidery floss until midnight.

She was disappointed with the crystal ball in Times Square.
"I thought you said it was going to drop!"
It did go down the pole and then was hidden behind the numbers 2010 -- on TOP of the building. I guess she took the expression literally and thought it was going to drop onto the people below. Eeuuu.

Come to think of it, before they had that huge crystal ball (circa 2yK?), I seem to remember that there was a smaller ball that dropped along the side of the building. Maybe not down to street level, but still. Anybody else remember that?

Plans for the New Year?
I plan to do more writing and to send more ms. out.
How about you? -wendie O

Yes, do more writing. And send mss out regularly. The key word being "regularly."

Blessings in 2010
