Thoughts for a Snowy Last Day of the Year

FOR TODAY: the last day of 2008
Outside my window: Soft fluffy snow piling up.
I am thinking: About how quickly this year has passed
I am thankful for: my life and all I am blessed with
From the kitchen: the possibility of macaroons(have to get that recipe from DLYNZ blog) and the smell of dog biscuits in the oven
I am wearing: of course, jeans, a new purple sweater and new Minnetonka slippers and always my ‘live the writerly life’ necklace
I am creating: constantly everything but hopefully will get to do more on my blog and make a New Year’s video with my new flip mino camera
I am going: to enjoy every day I have left of my vacation “Back to School on Monday” and maybe if the snow turns sticky I will make a new Snow Dog and write another sequel.
I am reading: "Boy Writers” by Ralph Fletcher (I know that is pathetic that I am reading something for school, right) But of course I am skimming Whole Dog Journal, too!
I am hoping: that 2009 continues to bless all my family and friends
I am hearing: silence and the Labs snoring and the furnace clicking on
Around the house: Christmas beginning to be put away(sigh) and 7 Labradors are lounging
One of my favorite things: our place in NC and the opportunity to be able to visit our sons, Steve and John
A few plans for the rest of the week: Staying in and having fondue for NYE(we just don’t go out) Enjoying New Year’s Day with Brad and the Labs, hoping to do some more writing(please!) and taking a big breath to relax!
