New Year's Day [Jan. 1st, 2013|05:27 pm]
We had a great party last night, just visiting with friends, talking and laughing. We turned on the TV just in time to watch the ball drop, then turned it off and went back to socializing. People were really engaged, not texting or taking calls. It was great, and we went to bed at about 2:30. Three friends stayed over, and we had breakfast this morning. I had made a strata the night before so that I could just put it in the oven this morning, and I made homemade bagels, which came out great. Folks left at about noon, and I spent the next couple hours kind of in a glaze of tired contentment, reading a little. The house was pretty much a disaster, but I just couldn't manage to care.

Then I decided it was time to get in a workout, to start the New Year right. I went downstairs and put in 50 minutes on the ski machine. When I was done, I had about 400 times as much energy. I came upstairs and cleaned the kitchen and vacuumed the living room. Now I have a quilt project I'm going to start working on as soon as I finish a little computer time.

So how have I done for Resolutions, Day One:

Work out: check
Read: check
Craft work: check-to-be
Spend more time with friends/family: check
Spend less time on the computer: check
Write on LJ more: check

I'm not ready for tomorrow to be a work day, but at least it's a short week.

Oh, these were the leftovers from our party. Anyone want to claim them?

It's been pretty good, and Erin is due home any minute now, so that part is extra awesome!
