Fresh Start 09
Happy New Year!
With rolling over a new year, somehow I mentally wipe the slate clean for last year and have hope for the things to come in the new year. Isn't it amazing how we all tend to do that no matter what's going on now? Setting new goals, planning new projects and making changes to current situations is what will occupy my mind through the dark days of January. Gathering new energy to take on projects that honestly, I was too tired to consider near the end of the last full growing season. So off I go, full of hope and eager anticipation of change here.
But for today... I'll enjoy the newness of 2009 and eat some traditional New Year's Day food - black-eyed peas for luck and greens for prosperity. I'll be mindful of my actions as the saying goes, "What you do on New Year's Day will be what you're doing all year long." I wonder how this all started? (Ahh, I'll have to research that!)... Maybe it was one too many years like we had in 08. :)
Enjoy today, eat your traditional meal and have a very blessed 2009.
