New Year Resolutions

Everyone seems to be posting New Year resolutions, but I haven't made any - except to exercise more and I do that every year.
Maybe I should look for more resolutions to make my life better, but to tell the truth, there's not much else I want. I have a wonderful family, terrific friends, good health, and a roof that doesn't leak. I have a computer that only crashes a little, a washing machine that only leaks a bit, and a car that makes strange noises but gets me where I need to go. I have two dogs that are fun to take on walks, and a beautiful area to walk around in.
So, this year I decided that I'd spend more time outside walking around with my dogs getting more exercise, but other than that, I'm quite content.

Nothing much is going on here today. The village is quiet after a raucous New Year's Eve party over at the restaurant across the street. We came home from our (small but nice) party at 2 a.m. and heard the music blaring as we drove up the hill. As we parked and opened the door, the music deafened us. They were really rockn' in the resto! My daughter was tickled to hear a very silly song last night at our party. It was Quite rude, and had us all laughing hysterically. It was a song you sang and it had gestures, and was all about the Bedouin's daughter, a banana, and a donkey...and no, you do not want to know! LOL. We were woken up early by the church bells (as usual) and my hubby brought me a cup of coffee in bed (I could hardly open my eyes, lol) and he's napping now, my son is studying for his exams, and my daughter is writing a book about a horse named 'Pitou'. The weather is getting colder - which is good because yesterday it was balmy and rainy. At least the cold means dryer weather here. Well, we're off to take a walk now with the dogs!

I hope everyone has a wonderful, prosperous, and healthy New Year 2007!
Best wishes and lots of hugs,

Happy New Year Sam!
Tell your daughter my Baby Horse is making me work.
I love the name Pitou! The world needs more horse stories IMHO!
I'd love to read it.

I just ordered Horse passages from amazon.
A late Christmas present to me.

That settles it. Next year I'll celebrate New Years Eve in France.

Those Germans have no idea how to throw a party and the songs are boring to the extreme.

Happy New Year!

Sam said...

Ho! You're welcome to come spend it with us, but the party was very staid up until the guy got on his chair and started to sing, lol!
(And then we put the music on and danced!)

Happy New Year Jennifer!
I have missed reading your bravenet blog and am going to have to take a little time and go back over what you've written here. Miss your photo blog too. You always have interesting things going on. I hope 2007 is wonderful for you!
