~ getting ready ~

We will open the book.
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity
and its first chapter is
... New Year's Day.

~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
I love that quote...
it sums it up.
no resolutions, no regrets...
~ just keep living life as a new chapter unfolds for us.

it is our book,
and we can begin it again any way we like.....
how refreshing & peaceful to our hearts & minds!!!

I have all of my 'things' ready to celebrate New Years Eve tomorrow night ~

I have my stitching basket, comfy pj's and warm fire...
~ a few good friends (fur and feather and of course hubby) will accompany me, 
along with good snacks {mostly healthy, some not} like boiled shrimp, cheese and crackers,
and maybe some homemade soup? and of course some chocolate.

 I do know that I am looking forward to another fresh start ~ 
trying to be a better human being to all living things is my top priority...
 {well, that ~ along with de-cluttering everything in my life that I no longer want/need/use!!}

 how will you ring in the New Year?
do you have any resolutions?

Wishing you all a Blessed New Year!
