how did you beckon in the new year? 

i did it from bed. 

with walter the bear nearby, in a slip and slouchy tee, wet hair, laundry drying on door hooks. i craved soup. i dipped downstairs for a roll; robbie brought home hot chocolate for my tired throat. i read, and when my head got tired of reading, i made lists. i made lists and lists. i could list the lists -- i'll refrain. i resolved to make no resolutions until my body resolved its little bout of illness -- i simply cannot think straight with such a sore throat. 

i am gazing at 2015 lovingly -- it's enchanted me already. how can you be so deeply in love with a year (or a man, or a place) you've hardly met? i don't know, but i am.

  2. I beckoned in the new year by I spending my night (in my favorite sweater and denim overalls) creating my very own starry sky out of paper and ribbon while listening to Perry Como sing "Catch a Falling Star" and songs by other great singers.

    So sorry that you are not feeling well! May your body rest and return to full health very soon. And, may your new year be filled with joy.

  3. I also spent it in bed, but not because I was sick...I just fell asleep at 11:30 and woke up an hour later realizing I missed it. Not that exciting... but what is exciting is spending the first day of the year planning for Paris. We've decided to go in March and suddenly, my brain is filling up with all the wonderful things that could come of the trip. So spend some time planning for your trip and I'm sure it will make you feel a bit bitter :) (When are you going, by the way? Perhaps a Paris meet-up is in order!)
