Happy New Year!

January 1, 2008

I stepped out on my back patio at midnight and heard a constant stream of fireworks as a backdrop to my wind chimes. The sky is so clear tonight. The neighbors are shooting off beautiful, high flying fireworks. Beyond those, I saw the Big Dipper, Mars, Gemini, Orion, Cassiopeia and more.

I think this is the best New Year's I've had since I can remember. I did what I enjoy the most. I stayed home by myself, played on my computer, watched football, ate a steak and some buckeye candies, and looked up at the stars. I drank some champagne (a mimosa, really), but I could have done without that... it was just the pressure of tradition talking me into doing it. I saw fireworks without dealing with a crowd. And I didn't have to witness any couples kissing.

I hope you enjoyed yours, too. Happy New Year!
