Merry Christmas - Happy New Year
As I write this, Christmas is pretty much over. I've had a good day, made pumpkin bread this morning for dinner at a friend's relative's house. In their family, traditional Christmas dinner is lasagna. Not what I've been used to most of my life, but I love pasta, and therefore, was very happy with the choice. Of course, I'm always very happy when someone else cooks for me.
I'm really not much of a Christmas person, I'm always glad when it's over. The end of the year always seems like a good time to me. A new year seems to promise new things, better things, maybe things will somehow magically be perfect. Of course, I always say I'm going to make more of an effort at losing weight in the new year - how many years have I said that? Well, some years I've succeeded, and then gained it again!
Whatever your feelings for the season, I hope you've had a wonderful time. A time of memories full of good people, good food and good times. Next year, I hope the world will finally be at peace. I wish for peace and prosperity for everyone, and I hope they enjoy themselves.
Happy New Year!
