I am already laughing and wondering what this new year will bring! I rang it in in style with a houseful of who I guess I can call my friends. I was invited over to the Folkmans to spend new years with the Bunko ladies, their families, and some other families. I was sitting at home at 8:15 trying to get the energy and gumption to go. Sometimes social gatherings are not my forte'. I suddenly got up, grabbed my jacket and headed out the door, still talking myself into going until I pulled into the drive and thought... too late now!I was happily surprised with myself when people kept showing up that I was truly glad to see. I even played a game... willingly! I did take my mysterious stand and leave at 11:30 to spend the actual turn of the year in the quiet atmosphere among my own possessions. A great start. And today.... I have spent the day climbing hills, dancing balls, surviving fevers and crushed affections with Jane, Lizzy, Eleanor, Marianne and many other of my favorite ladies. (I did leave the house for an hour or so to take a walk and meet some neighbors!)
I send my hope for you all to have a great new year!
