Photo by Snaggletooth Xmas week 2009
The major holiday is done, n now just New Years looms ahead this week for the holiday stressed.
All the beautiful snow at the beach n around the village has melted, due to a balmy 40F degree day of tropical rains. I swear that was thunder I heard all night, too...
Now just greyish lumps lay in odd spots reminding us of the mountains shoveled in the past week.
Tonight the puddles are freezing up into black ice to drive on again, just in time for the next projected artic blast heading in by mid-week. The sea ice will be building up more soon, for more frozen pic opportunities.
I'm so tired- I'd just like to hibernate awhile. I lost sleep Saturday staying up to get to the post office n running errands. A nap is no substitute for a day's rest, n as you get older, the body doesn't let you function well in this zonked state.
I've no New Years plans, either! Off for the Eve, On (working) for the day again. Think I'll try to work on relaxing n snoozin, so I can feel better.
Got a party lined up? I did that every year until The past eight years or so- now I'm not into bars or gigs, not a big drinker, either! Looks like it'll be Sub-Z weather anyhow, perfect weather to cuddle-up with a hot-water bottle n blankie n watch First Night on the tv.
Time for shower n snooze before work again...
Have a lovely last week of 2009!

Sounds like you and I have the same plans for New Year's Eve - staying in. I usually can't even stay awake until midnight. I hope you have a happy new year, Snaggle.

I prefer to let the old year go and new one come in a quiet fashion. The days of partying until the sun came up to greet the new year have long since passed me by. (However - I have some awesome memories - lol)

I hope you spend New Year's Eve doing exactly what you want, Snaggle!

Hey, this picture -- was it taken just a little after the one you posted last time? And closer to the houses, of course. Lovely, as usual. I feast my eyes on your photos.

Funny, we used to do New Years Eve here with friends until about 7 or so years ago too, just fizzzled out. Had a few wild old times. Fireworks, fun and all that jazz.

My old singing teacher, my first teacher, Donna, has sent an e-mail vite to a potluck for New Years day and I think I just might go if kids are welcome. Always up for some eats and fellowship!

Sleep thee well.

Lynn, So you're an early bird- I'm an owl, n always up until dawn. Can't believe I used to drive up to New Hampshire for such occassions. Well good luck with your rest party too!

Talon, Why am I always glad to see the old year over with? N they're whipping by- I can't remember alot of those parties, cause I was too wasted! I'm guessing I'll be doing nothing special.
Hope yours is quiet n graceful-

JanF, Yes, both pics were taken from the main pier in the harbor towards what I call the front beach. (I live very near the back beach) Alas, now there's no white beaches. But having current pics of any beach is good, I suppose!
Ah I've never hosted a good bender, due ton apartment smallness. Used to attend all Bruce Marshall's gigs on the Eve tho- drove all over the place to go. I miss those days as a groupie. Maybe I'll be on the phone a bit too-
Have a good New Year

I love that shot!

I hope your Christmas time was good to you and your new year is filled with peace and prosperity. I also wanted to acknowledge you as a log-time blogfriend and tell you that my life is fuller because of it.

Happy New Year!

Hi SnaggledTooth - we are actually going to a BBQ tomorrow - the first time we have done anything on NYE for a long time.

Have to laugh at your 40F - we have nearly 40C here today! The snow on the beach looks awesome.

Cheers - Robin (and thanks for the link from that other post - I was in a no-blogging phase when I saw it - much appreciate it!)

Paige, Love the terminology of "Inner Party"! Thanks

Mike, I knew "Snow at the beach"{ would fascinate you- Thanks for the well-wishes n I wish a wonderful 2010 for you, too!

Robin, I envy the summer holiday crowd below the equator, as it's way easier to BBQ when it's above the -10F we're doing here now! Well, the snow melted a few days ago, but now the seawater is icing up. I noticed you'd slowed down a bit, as we all have to sometimes. You're welcome, n it was a great quote. Cheers to your two days ahead of us!
