This first day of 2009 was cold, but bright and sunny and I'm happy to say calm with no wind.
We went out to eat last night with our friends Jackie and Kerry and then we all went back to our house for a while. Always nice to spend time with them.
Then a little after 8 we headed back out and went to Bonnie and Steve's party. It was a great party and we really enjoyed our night out. Bonnie's house is so cool and I just love all the colors they have painted their walls. Colors that you wouldn't think go together look great in her house.
Since we didn't go to bed until 1:40 last night I slept in a bit until 7:15 and then got up and went for my morning walk. This first day of the year I only walked 4 miles because I got a late start and I was hungry and wanted to get home and make pancakes. :-) I'll walk a little extra tomorrow.
I counted up my walking miles for 2008 and the total was 2,255 miles!
Our son David came by today and spent a couple of hours with us. A nice start to the new year.
On the LibraryThing I have started the 75 Book Challenge for 2009. I am going to keep track of the books on the side bar of my blog. Anyone else up for the challenge?
A pretty quiet day - surprising isn't it since we are moving on Tuesday? You would think we would be busy packing things up. This certainly is a stress free move. It's so nice to be able to move so leisurely!!
Well, I'd better go and start reading that first book!
Happy New Year!!
