Next Year

I think this week between Christmas and New Year's is a week most people just don't do much of squat. I know I don't. And I'm okay with that. However, according to tradition, I will do a little mini-spring cleaning, I just don't start any new projects or do anything that involves major work! It's a good time to just relax and kinda take it easy. So, after this week I will return with some new projects and some how-to stuff.
As I said though, New Year's Eve is traditionally the day to clean house. All bed linens, towels and other such stuff should be changed to fresh items before the end of the day. If you have time, all broken items mended and even torn clothes repaired. I got a jump on things yesterday by washing the quilts and comforter on the bed and a few more items. Tradition also stipulates that you repay all debts (if possible), return all borrowed items and even apologize to anyone you may have offended over the year. The idea is to have a completely fresh start come the new year. New Years is also the more correct time to serve eggnog, rather than Christmas, as the eggs symbolize new beginnings.
I'll try to post again tomorrow and then Jack and I will be going on a short vacation. Just a few days to restock on my clay supplies and generally see some sights.
I wish each of you a very Happy New Year!! I hope that this new year is an improvement over the last one, even if the last one was pretty good for you! I wish you all peace, good health, love and contentment in whatever you do in life.

Happy New Year, Annie (& Jack). Look at how far you've come!! Ain't it amazing? I know there were times you've been down and despondent but just look how things have become so much better in your life. I hope it keeps improving and getting even better.

Thanks for tradition info!
I did finally return the power washer I borrowed from Billy back in June.

... he didn't even know I had it.


Happy New Years to quite possibly the most unique blogger on my list.

Looking forward to whatever you share with us in 2011.
