all the resolutions
A brand new year Whooptidoo....... clean slate.... new start... all the resolutions that will not be kept! Eat less, exercise more, be less grumpy, play more with Mister, take longer walks with Ralle, don't grumble over vacuuming... someone has to do it.. do Ralles toe nails more often.... yea, yea, yea ;)
Realizing full well how lucky I am to have toe nails to trim (OK claws), a cat to cuddle, and a most beautiful dog to walk.
Having just had the "gang" here..... enjoying a dinner together this New Years Eve... early, allowing the young ones plenty of time to hook up with friends.... while we watch the ball fall in New York in real time, then to promptly hit the sack.
What the heck happened? We have become just as "boring" as I used to think my own parents were.
John and his gang celebrated the twelve o'clock ringing at the Seattle space needle.
Fredrik and his cute bunch went to hang out with friends nearby in South Cali.
and Garrison turns twenty-two today, Happy Happy Birthday Gary!
After our New Year's Eve Extravaganza... a splendid dinner consisting of Salmon and Potato Chowder, Steak and Lobster with Saffron Rice, a side of Seared Asparagus with Hollandaise, a Salad with Balsamic Dressing, with Riesling, Merlot, and some "sparkle" wine to sip ...... Crisp Roasted Apple Tarts with a dab of Cream...... making us stretch our Ralle walk to two hours this morning, that is a promise!
Then back to ground beef and oatmeal come tomorrow!
We all march fearlessly into 2013.
Happy New Year!
Gott Nytt År!
Feliz Ano Nuevo!
now out we go with the beautiful dog...........
