The Start of a New Year

My favorite way to start the first day of the new year is sleeping late, a great breakfast, reading a good book and playing scrabble online with my best friend. Guess what? That is just what happened. It was a great day for relaxing, for tomorrow reality returns.
I tried to focus on the good things that the tomorrows of this new year will bring and not dwell on the past hurts of the year before. Oh, how I am going to work very hard at being the optimist!
Sometimes it is not easy though. Especially when my other half tends to put both feet in his mouth and make jokes that friends don't understand and don't like. I do get tired of doing damage control for him. He is a good-hearted person, but sometimes does not know when to stop.
On to the rest of my day. Great dinner, I made Cornish hens, and being Southern by birth, had to have Black-eyd Peas, Turnip Greens and Cornbread. These are all tradition in my family. These foods are supposed to bring you Good luck, and wealth in the coming year, hopefully we will be healthy, wealthy and wise in 2008. A little extra money wouldn't hurt either.
The day is winding down now and should call it a night. I did check in at blogs that I have come to love, thru them, I am finding other ones that are interesting and inspiring. They have all gave me something to think about.

Hoping for Sunshine tomorrow!
Good thoughts to all
