New Year's Eve ~~ Yay!















{Circa 1907 - The first "ball drop" in Times Square}

Hello Hello people! Good morning and Happy New Year's Eve! I can't believe the year is just about over. Where in the world does the time go? :)

No huge party plans for tonight. Saturday is going to be Jean's memorial service and honestly, I'm just not in the partying mood. I'm gonna start to undecorate this afternoon when I get home. Tell me: do you have any sort of tradition about taking down your decor before the New Year? I've heard many different things and I guess everyone has their own tradition they go by. We never really had one. The decor came down as I found the time to do it, as I'm sure it is with most folks. A few years ago I heard that its bad luck for the new year if you still had your decor up on New Years Day. I'm not a superstitious person, but since then, I've tried to take mine down before the 1st. The other day I heard that you're supposed to leave everything up until January 6th. Ok, random. I have no idea the significance of that day, and the person who told me this didn't either. Its just what her family always did. What are your thoughts?

Next order of business: an award! Yay!!! I'm a bit late posting it, but hey...its an AWARD. Whoot! My dear sweet friends Sharon, of Mana Moon and Laura of Any Occasion Boutique have both given me this award. I'm so grateful to you both! Its an honor, truly! And I will post it with pride :) And because I'm feeling sassy, I'm not gonna follow the rules. MWhaha! Everytime I try to award it to someone, something goes wonky, so I will graciously and humbly accept it and that all. :)

OK, so I'm working all day today. Blech. Maybe...just maybe the boss lady will let us go early?!? One can only hope...lol

If you have plans for this evening, please take care and have a wonderful time! Wishing you all a prosperous and glorious New Year!

Much Love and Peace to All ♥,

Happy New Year's Eve Dude ;-)

Saturday will be a blessing with Jean being laid to rest. She deserves it ever so much and I know you know this. I've been in your shoes too many times and know how you feel. I'm always here for you :-)

On to decorations- I always keep my tree up until New Year's Day. I would love to keep my outside decorations up but we have a home-owner's association that declares we cannot have any outside decorations up after Jan 1. Soooo we usually take them down a few days after Christmas :-(

Well, whatever you and Dan do tonight, have a wonderful and safe time. Us? We'll be ordering a pizza and sitting our butts on the couch and watch movies!
Love ya Dude ;-)

SAB~ I accidentally pushed the reject button on your comment. SO SORRY!! :/
Happy New Year to you my dear friend! ♥

Dolores: I accidentally "rejected" your comment. So Sorry 'bout that! But thanks for letting me know~ now that you've mentioned it, seems like I've heard that before. {{she said that January 6th is the last day of the 12 days of Christmas, and thats why some wait to take the decor down until then}}
Thanks Dolores!!! :)

Oh I'm late on this one, I was busy working on other projects yesterday. We tend to take the decorations down when the mood strikes us. Actually it has alot to do when the little guy returns from his Dad's so he can help.

Hope you're doing ok dear friend and you're both in our thoughts♥
