HAPPY NEW YEAR ~~2008 Year of NEW Beginings

What a Year 2007 was and now we're into 2008. Did you know that the number 8 represents "New Beginings" . So this is the year that new and hopefully exciting things will happen. Michael and I had a quiet night. Dec. 31st we celebrate our first date, as well as New Years Eve. I made a special dinner of proscuito wrapped sea scallops, bacon wrapped pork kebobs, grilled shrimp with steamed veggies and a salad. I had a small piece of everything, my stomach has shrunk and can't eat a lot. We toasted with Sparkling cider and watched the fire works and the Dick Clark Rockin New Years Eve show.

Then we watched a fwe movies then went to bed and listened to a cd and I read my night time book which is Ysabel. It is pretty darn good too, I have trouble reading certain books if I can't visualize what I am reading. Anyway this one is a real page turn. So Michael reads his gaming magazine as well. HE is getting better but it is a slow process and it drives him crazy because he really can't do anything except rest. But from now on the is "NO BASKET BALL" allowed. The doctor said it would be about a good month before the pulled rib is completely healed. So my ministry at present is taking care of my husband. He misses the fellowship from church.

So I am invinting people over for dinner on Saturday I will cook a crown pork roast with steamed veggies and so forth. Tomorrow I will deliver the cookie treats and so forth that I have finished baking. Plus I have some fudge from scratch for Sis Lavelle. Plus cookies for the Pastor & Sis Shara's Family. Today I hung 2 shelfing units in my little office and it is finally looking like is should. I used the new cordless 18v drill Michael got for Christmas. I told him that I need a tool belt. I love working with power tools and making improvements on the house. But I only do the ones I know I can do lol.

Anyway my last swap was the coffee one and Sarah got me some starbucks coffee, now I am from the New England area and had a choice between Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks. I was notice key word "was" a diehard DD fan. But then I got a bag of the Christmas Blend and let me tell you I just love it!! I haven't tried the other coffee yet though I am savoring this one. Sorry DD I also drink SB now too. But one thing will never change and that is I an a diehard "PATRIOTS" fan and the boys are kicking hiney presently and I just "LOVE IT" Well I should stop I need to get some more yarn off the drop spindle so I can spin some more of the corriedale so I can have enough to make a small felted bad. My wheel on the spinning wheel sort of wobbles in the frame so I need to take it in and have someone look at it for me. So I have been practicing treadling for now.

Well enjoy your new beggings all,

CW
