2010 is here! Happy new year to us all.
I watched the Seattle Space Needle fireworks on tv tonight because I can't actually see the Needle from my porch. And I'm listening to the noise on the street of the celebrants lighting off fireworks. Some of the noises are very loud and my cats are wondering what all the ruckus is about. They're handling it pretty well considering that some pretty loud booms are happening.
I took the boys to see Avatar this afternoon and they both loved it. I didn't love it as much as they did.... lots of war-like behavior and fighting were happening and I guess I'm more of a peacenik type of person. When I went by to drop off the kids, Abigail invited me in for a glass of bubbly so I joined them for a quick drink. I knew Matt and Chelle who are in town for the holidays from Waterloo ON were going there with their two girls so I wanted to have a quick drink and leave to go home... but I wasn't fast enough and not only was there for Matt and Chelle's arrival but a few others as well. Then Liza and Laura walked in to say 'happy new year'. It was almost 6:30pm before I got out of there a little the worse for wear (and drink).
The girls were going to the casino to dance the new year in but it was full so they called me about 9:30pm to ask if I would come and pick them up since they were standing in a long line. Just as I was about to leave, the phone rang again and a kind policeman had offered them a ride home. Just as well. Madeleine is over in Seattle celebrating.
Have done very little quilting over the past couple of weeks what with Christmas shopping and decorating going on. But my tree is undecorated now and I'll get back to business in a day or so. After the Pasadena Rose Parade tomorrow morning.!!!!
