Happy New Year ... 2010 !

I have spent the last week cleaning my house, getting it ready for the New Year. I am following the lead of my good friend Kay and her very wise Mother. over at Musings
Cleaning up all of the old to welcome in the new, Kay describes it so much better, very Zen!
Christmas was great, had all my chicks at home under the same roof, and I couldn't have been happier.
Jim and I are spending a quiet but festive, New Years Eve at home tonight. I just hope I make it to midnight before falling asleep!

I want to wish all of you a very Happy and Healthy New Year!

"The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes."
Frank Lloyd Wright

Thank you everyone!


  1. We too are staying in as well tonight. Perhaps watch a movie and have some nibblies and maybe champagne IF we don't fall asleep too early! I too have been cleaning up a storm ever since I read Kay's post about the cleaning! Now to the New Year all spic and span! Have a wonderful New Year!

  2. I'm staying home tonight too, but I'll be alone. John has to work 3 to 11 and I have to work again tomorrow. My ex always called New Year's Eve "Amateur Night". LOL

    Happy New Year!

  3. Here's to a happy, prosperous and healthy New Year to you and yours!!!

  4. well I didn't clean up my house although we had no company so it's not too dirty. There's still time to clean off my desk-does that count? Happy new year.

  5. Happy New Year Peggy, all the best to you and yours for 2010

  6. Happy New Year Peggy. I am staying home with my daughter tonight too. I can remember your first tentative blog steps, but look at your blog now! How did you get these cool snowflakes? I am so impressed.
    Oh, BTW, did I give you my new blog address?

  7. Art has been a busy beaver cleaning ALL the windows in the house. That took two days. Then we had a sudden rain fall that dirtied a third of them. Needless to say he was not a happy camper.

    The house is pretty clean, I think. I don't want to know what I missed.

    I'm so glad you had the whole crew over at your place. That is fabulous!

    Have a MOST WONDERFUL and Happy New Year!!!

    Gosh we are twins...feels good to have a clean house to satrt the new year! Very calming. My husband and I have had a great New years eve so far. May it last all year.
    Happy New Year to you to Cheryl, kind of nice to enjoy the simple pleasures. I'll probably make it to midnight but barely!

    I have been inspired by you. My house is clean or as clean as it's gonna be. It just makes a lot of sense. I like when life makes sense. Thank you thank you for being such a good friend to me for all these years. You and Art have made such a difference in my life! I still remember many years ago when we shared fish eggs together on New Years!

  9. Joanie;

    We used to call tonight amature night too. I'm glad to be home in my warm little house. It's very cold outside my window.
    There are many of us home tonight with you!
    Happy New Year Joanie. You and John have had a heck of a year.
    God bless you both!

    Kay D;

    You too kay, hope you have a wonderful 2010.

    Desks count. In fact, I think a clean desk is very calming.
    Very Zen! Happy New Year my friend!
    Thanks for all the great comments~


    Happy New Year to you too.
    I think Microfictions Monday will be even better in 2010.

  10. Happy, happy New Year to you, my dear friend! You are one of the lovely gifts I have discovered since I began blogging and, yes, we are like sisters in that respect -- and in other ways, too. Here's wishing you much love and joy and laughter, peace and prosperity in the coming year! Happy, Happy New Year, Peggy!


  11. Well, my decorations are still up and I'm still enjoying their warmth and light. Soon I'll have to start putting away. I'll miss them.
    Tom and I are going to a movie, and then we'll be back home in plenty of time to watch the fireworks on the Space Needle - on television.

  12. Thank you Sylvia, let's have a great 2010 together!
    It's already 2010 here in the midwest, a couple more hours for you west coasters!
    Happy New year my friend!

    Linda R;

    My husband just took down the tree about a half hour ago!
    I love all te lights and the ornaments.
    Happy New Years Linda!

    I'm so glad to have you back blogging! Thank you so much for the compliments! You are too kind!
    I will be over to visit in 2010~
    Happy New Year Julie, it's a going to be a great new beginning!

  14. Well it wouldn't be a great New Year unless I poked my head in to say hello!

    We stayed in too [after visiting with visiting relatives] and I was glad! I made it to midnight [barely] but at least I woke up with a clear head.

    You were one of the joys I found last year and I look forward to what's to come. Here's wishing you and the ones you love the very best year ever!

  15. Hope;

    I woke up this morning, the first day of the new year , and read your comment! What a way to start a year! How can this new year be anything but great!
    Thank you Hope, I am also excited to see what's to come!
    I wish for you that you find a job that brings you much more joy. I can't have my pal under constant attack. Blessing for you and your husband in this new year!

  16. Happy New Year to you too Peggy! We too had a quiet night and none of us made it to Midnight!
    I hope 2010 brings many wonderful things for you!

  17. LT;

    We made it to midnight and ten minutes past. Then it was lights out!
    I wish you the same wonderful 2010!

  18. Happy New Year Peggy! I hope you had a wonderful time with all the family, whether or not you managed to stay awake LOL

    I hope 2010 is a fantastic year for you!

  19. Susan;

    I actually stayed awake and had a glass of bubbly and kissed my husband ...and then I went to bed!
    Happy New year to you too my friend!


    Thank you for the great wishes, and I send each one back to you too!
