I'm not up to snuff today! We went to a house party last night and I spent the evening sipping on a lovely sweet German white wine. My favorite wines are German whites and this one was just too delightful. Tut, tut, blush, blush. It was a very nice evening, met some new people, lots of good food. I didn't know if I'd be able to stay up to see the New Year in as I'm usually in bed quite early most nights. I made it though and didn't get home and in bed until 1:30am. 5:00 am rolled around and the cats use to me getting up really early were wondering "What's happened to mom." So, they must have had a discussion between them all and decided to jump on me, paw at me and meowing to get me off the bed. Well, it worked! The first morning I can remember that I just sat around in my misery and didn't do a darn thing all morning. No tidying, no vacuuming, no dishes done!

We had an early lunch and I lay on the bed covered in the duvet and went fast asleep. Slept for hours and am starting to feel normal once again. It's been a miserable day with freezing rain. Hardly any birds about, can't say I blame them. I did see a few Juncos and Chick a Dees and the squirrel was out there looking wet and bedraggled.

I've got to try to get some of the weight off. I put on pounds over the holidays what with all the sweets and far too much food. I expect I'll take the decorations down tomorrow, I'm getting a little tired of them now and besides, I have a couple of projects that I want to get at. So, dear friends, I hope the new year brings many blessings to each and everyone of you.

Wet little squirrel.

Sorry to hear you're a bit "under par" but it sounds as though you've caught up with your sleep now OC

And the housework will wait... it's not going anywhere (more's the pity!!)

Hope your dreams come true in 2009 :D
