As I predicted, DH and I called it a night long before the new year rolled in … but alas, our “neighbors” (in the next subdivision over) had other plans. They started shooting off fireworks at around 10:30 … so DH and I gave in and got back up. As I sat in my recliner, I’d decided I’d had enough of the Christmas tree and decorations … and down they came! By the time we were done, it was almost midnight … so we saw the new year in after all. Not exactly the most exciting way to celebrate New Year’s Eve (ha!), but it sure felt good when I got up this morning and saw the house back to “normal”. I did manage to sleep in to make up for the late night … I made it all the way to 6:15.
There are football games on TV today, so I suspect that DH will tune them in. This is when I’m especially thankful that we paid for the TV receiver for his hearing aids … he can turn the volume off but still pull the sound directly into his hearing aids. I’ll be able to quilt alongside him without having to listen to the announcer’s drivel.
Speaking of quilting, I’m well into the outermost blocks of DH’s log cabin. If I recall correctly, I have 9 or 10 of the blocks done … I imagine that I’ll cross the halfway point some time today (there are 28 outermost blocks). My original plan was to quilt until Monday when I’d start on the quilt for T#3. But since I’m getting so close to the finish on this quilt, I may just keep working on it … hopefully it’ll only postpone my start on T#3’s quilt by a day or two.
We have no New Year’s Day celebrations or traditions here at Chez Nana … unless you count watching football (DH) or quilting (me).
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
