...New Yorkers are getting ready to celebrate.
It's almost party time in New York. In some places where citizens of Buttercupland reside it is 2013, but we still have almost eight more hours here. In a few hours I will be joining friends for dinner, conversation and laughter. I am in charge of the dinner, and in a very simplified fashion that meant consulting with a friend and ordering Chinese food online. I am also in charge of the ice cream selection and I will stop at the drugstore and choose two flavors for tonight. One will be chocolate and one will be something other. I am leaning to Heath Bar Crunch, one of my favorites. This is not the usual dinner out or highly coordinated potluck, but it felt just right and took just the right amount of energy. Ice cream and Chinese food -- including orange chicken -- are highly indulgent and I am happy to forget calories and salt count for one night.
Tomorrow I am going to post my "word" for 2013 and then begin a series on goals for the year ahead. Before 2012 is only a memory I want to extend my thanks and affection for the friendship and support I received from all of you throughout the year. I am so blessed to have found this corner of Blogland and equally blessed by all who visit here. I wish you and your families good health and happiness in 2013, and my special wish that my path crosses with many of you this year.
Happy, healthy, joyous wishes for 2013!
