Happy New Year!

We’re optimistic that 2009 will be better than 2008. Let’s all think collective positive thoughts for this year.

Mir and I have had the week off – overall, it’s been pretty nice – the weather has cooperated and we’ve been able to relax quite a bit – after this past year, we needed some real relaxation time. Unfortunately, Mir has to go back to work tomorrow, but I’ll keep the home fires burning.

We’ve been able to walk the dogs everyday. This pic is from a walk we did around Lake Alice – it was a beautiful day.

The UF Women’s basketball team has been playing very well so far this year. If you get the chance, go watch some of their games. We’ve finally started going again – and always have a great time.

The lights come down today. New Year’s day officially ends the holiday season for us. We didn’t do a tree this year and decorated minimally – so, cleanup will be a snap – just how I like it.

For New Year’s Eve, we opted to stay home – had an invite to a party but worry about the dogs kept us home – and a good thing we were there – the fireworks were greater this year than last and the doggies got anxious – so, I sat with Peanut and Mir sat with the big dogs – after about a half hour the worst was over. We watched movies and drank some really good champagne. Not a bad ending to 2008.

Well, I need to take a shower, get dressed and take the doggies for a walk.

Best wishes for a happy 2009!
