A banner day

Saw this as we took our walk today and thought it reflected an excellent wish for 2009.

N and I had a wonderful New Year’s Eve – among other things, we watched “The Big Easy” on DVD after a tasty dinner of pasta and meatballs, played music, watched the ball drop on Times Square, toasted with champagne and special chocolates from Goody’s, and checked out New Year’s celebrations all over the world (internet’s a great thing). Also, peeked at some of the neighborhood fireworks being set off down the street.

Today’s been mellow; gray and rainy outside. And it’s been a day just to do little things we enjoy. Hope it’s been a good day for you, too.

Ms M this is a perfect sentiment to start the new year. I hope 2009 is a banner year indeed! Sounds like you had a delightful New Year's Eve (I had champagne and chocolate too!), and a mellow first day of the new year. I finally got out of bed at 11 and spent most of the day hanging out with my cousin and her family. And tomorrow's only Friday!

Sounds like you had a nice easy New Year's Day. We slept in, too.
And I agree, champagne, chocolate, major "food groups" for New Year's celebration. :-)
