It's a balmy 65 degrees on our back porch here in North Texas this New Year's Day! They tell us not to get too used to this since it will be back in the 20's and 30's soon... but it's nice while it lasts! There were no firecrackers or Roman Candles around here last night due to the worst drought in 50 years, so it was a very quiet New Year's Eve.
I've spent the morning wondering if I should take out the trash, do the laundry, open all the windows or even allow my (used to be blonde...grin) husband to be the first person to walk across the threshold today. Snopes.com has an entire list of all the things one should do (or not do!) to guarantee success for the coming new year... since we slept through it, I guess that blows the whole idea of making tons of noise to ward off all the evil spirits and chase out the old year at midnight. But regardless... I sure hope everyone has a wonderful day and a great year! Happy New Year!
