Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering 'it will be happier'..." ~ Alfred Lord Tennyson
After a night of celebration, I have spent the first day of 2014 relaxing. It has been a wonderful day, and I am happy.
Last night I invited a few friends over for "pre festivities."
My roomie and I pulled it together with a few New Year's celebratory decorations and accessories, a few nibbles, and a fun playlist.
One by one, our friends trickled in. We cracked open the wine, cranked up the tunes and turned what could have been a boring evening, waiting for the festivities downtown to begin... into a little fun and lots of laughter.

|Jeff, Margaret, and my roomie Lynn|
I wish each and every one of you a super Happy New Year.. I hope your day has been as peaceful as I mine has been!
Started out with lunch at Ole Times Country Buffet with my roomie and Big Guy. We filled up on black eye peas, collard green, and other yummy veggies for good luck!
Later, we all went our separate ways (Big Guy went home to sleep, roomie to her room to sleep, and I fell asleep on the couch.) I did watch two really good movies - Freedom Writers and Lovelace. Highly recommend both.
Later, Big Guy and I took off to Wendy's for dinner (I was wanting a baked potato.) Now.. I'm just resting a little more.

And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning." ~ T.S. Elliot
