Happy New Year 2014!

champagne.glassesHi and Happy 1st day of 2014!  It is still hard for me to believe that it is January 1, 2014.

How has your day been?  Mine has been lazy and spent with my two favorite guys — my hubby and son. We haven’t done much at all today and that has been exactly what I wanted for today.

As I posted earlier on Facebook, it has been true bliss.  And, for that I am truly thankful!

We did watch the entire Rose Parade live from Pasadena, California, commercial free on HGTV.   I have loved this 125-year old parade for years.  It is the one parade that continues to keep many marching bands and include amazing floats.  Once again it was fun and done very well.

As we were watching this, I made our lunch — mac ‘n cheese, green beans, and sloppy joes made with ground chicken.  It was yummy and filling food.

After that ended, we watched an episode of The Pioneer Woman.  She is one of our favorite chefs on television.  I like how down to earth she is and easy her recipes.  I don’t feel intimidated to try them like with some others.

Then there was an old episode of Starsky and Hutch that my hubby and I watched.  It was from 1975.  It was fun to see the old telephones, typewriters, and cars.  We like to watch these old shows on occasion.

Along with the TV watching has been looking at library books and computer time for me, playing with his new toys for Ian, and various projects, computer time, and fun for Kirk. All in all we are enjoying our super lazy day while still in our pjs.  Not many days like that of the year so we enjoy them while we can.  The fact that we all are well today is a blessing and the cherry on the sundae.

When I decided to write a blog today, I was at first thinking of being philosophical but then thought it would be fun to share about our low-key fun day at home.  Sometimes in life just enjoying the moment is the best thing to do.  You know what I mean?

Tonight we will have leftovers for dinner.  I recently made a homemade chicken pot pie that we still have some of.  That with salad will be great! Beyond that, I don’t know what our evening will bring but I do look forward to more time of taking it easy.

A friend of mine on Facebook said that instead of resolutions she asked that we pick one word to be at the forefront and define 2014.  Her choice was prayer, which is a great one.  Mine was possibilities.  I love all that the coming year has in store for us.  Don’t you?

Here is a quote that sums up today and this year very well.  It is from Brad Paisley.  “Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”  This inspires me in a lot of ways — both just personally and as a writer.

I hope to do exactly what he is saying and make memories and writings each day!
