And here we finally arrived at the last day of the year 2008. It was not the easiest year for us, although there were the good moments too. Now just let's hope and try also that the next year will bring us health at first place, and some surprises but then GOOD ones.
I had a little phonecall with Heidi yesterday, in which I told her we were not coming to her house to celebrate the New Year. Of course she was a bit disappointed but she also could understand it. I always find it difficult to leave the house at say 22.30 o'clock, just when you are sitting cozy and warm on the couch. But although it may sound weird to you, the main reason for staying home is the cats. Already some fools are blowing some fireworks in the last few days and I notice that he cats are more nervous and itchy even. As long as we are home, they feel safe and you never know what happens, if you're not at home around midnight today. They might startle from something, go out and some fool could hurt them or so. No, I better be home, we probably will close the hatch for a moment around midnight so that they stay inside and I feel much more at ease. It might be stupid, but you have to take care for your pets, isn't it. So Jan and I will be "lonely"at home, but don't pity us, we like it. We can watch whatever we want to, have some nice snacks from the oven and some toasts with smoked salmon and french cheese and so and we will be allright. So funny with me, when the clock strikes 12 I always think back a bit over the years passed by and I always get tears in my eyes. Also when I embrace Jan to wish him all the best for the coming year. I am sometimes a terribly emotional type, it seems!
Okay, may be I will have to do a few little things today, may be quickly a last shopping and then I can spend some time at the computer too. I made another challenge yesterday, I will show it to you in a few days. During my break I made a serie of kits, all about color. We will start with it today, may be in the coming days another kind of kit will pop up in between, but I got that luminous idea all of a sudden, LOL. They are rather "general"kits, very easy to use for all kind of things,which may be useful too, sometimes. Today we start with the blue, I gave the kits Italian names, this language sounds soooooo romantic, LOL. So it is Azzurro, Colore del Mare = Blue, color of the Sea.
Now I wish you all a very good and joyful New Years Eve and a fabulous start for the New Year! And THANK YOU for being so loyal and caring visitors!
Just a little note: may be tomorrow I will not post, on the first day of the year, it might be I am in dreamland for a loooong time, hahahaha. I suppose it could be a bit late today. So don;t startle if you see no post tomorrow, I am probably just catching up some sleep. Next day I certainly will be there!
Have a great day!
Lots of hugs to all!
