Happy New Year!



I'm looking forward to spending a nice quiet evening alone. It has been a busy season, and soon it will be back to normal. As I was cooking my dinner, I got caught up in painting and ended up burning the bottom of my pot. I was steaming veggies and didn't realize the water evaporated, but boy did it smell in the kitchen...then as I added water to try and clean it, the fire alarm went off. I hope this isn't a preview of next year, haha! I sometimes can be a bit absent minded.

I have a postive feeling for 2010, and I hope it turns out to be wonderful for all of us. We can choose to make it our best year ever! Let's try and count our blessings, focus on what is right in the world instead of the negative, and be kinder to everyone we meet.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of my blog readers for your friendship over the last year. I appreciate each and every one of you, and am grateful for your support. May the next year bring you many blessings, much joy, and abundance!

That sounds like something I would do too. Happy New Year Betty. May the remainder of the new year stay positive, bright and free of burned veggies.

See what happens when you try to eat vegetables, you should have been eating potato chips.

Your kitchen adventure,lol! No, not to many of those, lol!

P.s I don't know whether this is happening in the US? In the uk, teenagers hugging one another when they meet is catching on like there is no tomorrow! Great!
They even go in groups sometimes and randomly run up to someone and hug them. My daughter Hannah is one. They hug the metal tree in the Town centre.
I notice these young one often and it as been mentioned on the Radio what is going on with these young folk and hugging.
They may be the future healers of the world. Pray and hope!
