I have never been a fan of New Year's Eve. I don't like crowds, I am not much of a drinker and frankly, unless it has been an unusually bad year, I don't like to say goodbye to the old one.

We usually watch a couple of movies, pick up chinese food and most times do not realize that it has passed midnight. One year I was organizing the kitchen cupboards and we both completely forgot it was New Years Eve.

I do not want to sit around on the last day of the year thinking about losing Duffy so we are going out. This year we are going to the theatre to see the new Sherlock Holmes film and picking up our Chinese Food later. If we are lucky the theatre will not be too full and the film will be action packed and funny.

Another thing I never understood is the Resolution List. Why would you decide to change things that you probably won't. Why not choose things that you will want to do. I have decided that this year my resolution is to do more.

Spending more time in the garden.

Being more spontaneous and having picnics all the time.

I am going to laugh more.

And I am going to hug more and more and more. These are resolutions I know that I can keep, how about you?


  1. Excellent way of looking at the resolutions idea. I too am determined to get out in the garden more.

  2. sound like good resolutions to me sue.


  3. I couldn't have said it better! Happy New Year 8^)

  4. Dearest SUE!!!!

    THANK YOU FOR VISITING TODAY! My New Year's resolution? To KEEP GOING FORWARD AND NOT GO BACK in keep on striving for my dreams and even though I might be afraid, to just do it anyway. What do we have to loose?

    DO IT!!! Anita

  5. I love your resolutions to do more. That is always the way to joy. Hugs, my sweet friend.

  6. I'm with you about the resolutions. My resolution is to not make any resolutions.
    We always get Chinese food and watch movies until
    near midnite and I like to switch over to NYC
    and watch the people go cuckoo. And of course give my sweetie a big smooch at midnite.

  7. I haven't made a resolution for a long time EXCEPT last New Years I cut up all my credit cards, and I'm almost completely out of debt. One that I actually kept! YAY! I love your resolutions, you go girl!

  8. I love this idea!
    And I love your resolutions!
