January 1st...

Source


Just a wee note at the end of a lovely day spent with family. Our usual tradition is to order in (or go out for) a feast of Chinese food, and once again we enjoyed our favourite dishes, which always includes ginger beef no matter what else we decide on.

Hubby offered to wash up the last of the dishes, and then there are plans to draw near the fireplace later and watch a movie -- unless eyelids have other plans.

I leave you with a couple of thoughts that seem fitting as we look ahead to a new year...



"Write it on your heart that every day
is the best day in the year."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 
"You are never too old to set another goal
or to dream a new dream."
~ C.S. Lewis



 
Here's wishing you sweet dreams... 
when you're sleeping and when you're awake!

Hugs,
Brenda

  1. A calm and peaceful place this is...enjoy the take out and the movie. We watched "A Christmas Story" last night, which as you know, features that Chinese restaurant scene. We laugh all over again as if we've not seen it twenty or more times.

  9. This is always such a peaceful place to rest in my busy day. I love the Emerson quote. It fits right in with my pastor's sermon on Sunday. I guess I better get busy and enjoy this wonderful day.
