New Year's Day

Well, another decade is over. I asked my Facebook friends what they were doing ten years ago. We were living in Berkeley Lake and had a party at our house on New Year's Eve to celebrate the millennium. It culminated in setting off some illegal fireworks in our front yard (fireworks are illegal in Georgia). We tried so hard to be safe, but at least one firework took off at the wrong angle and chased Dick around the garden. Afterward it was funny to recall it but I was a bit scared at the time. It was a fun evening.

This year was very different. We stayed in and made a really nice pizza - shrimp, crab and artichoke. At least it was good until 11 PM when I threw up. Food poisoning. Enough said.

So I woke up on New Year's Day feeling a little fragile but wanting some fresh air. So we decided to go on a hike. I tracked the trail with 'EveryTrail' on my iPhone. This was the result. Unfortunately the trail was very muddy due to the recent rain, so it was hard going at times, and then it started raining to add insult to injury. Luckily we didn't get too wet as it was windy too. So after 2 hours we were glad to get back.

After a nice long hot bath, lunch and some relaxing, we head out to go to Tor's house- one of the Java Posse. The boys were going to record their Christmas Special - a round up of their Christmas presents, and predictions for the year ahead.

We ended up heaving a really nice meal and the girls played cards whilst the biys recorded the podcast. Here are the girls- from left to right: Jackie, Tracy, Teri and Jill.

We left their house just after midnight and got in at 1:20 AM- I don't remember the last time I was up that late!

Well... you certainly had an eventful New Year's Day, trekking around like that. All I remember is sleeping until 4pm, aha.
