Happy New Year

Here it is, the first day of 2009! I have always liked New Year's Day. Out with the old, in with the new. I have taken down the small tree upstairs and given the kitchen and dining area a good cleaning. Now I need to take a shower and get dressed (yes, I realize it's almost NOON) and maybe tackle the downstairs tree this afternoon. Why is it so fun to put up the holiday decorations and such a chore to take them down?

DH just headed for the store to get me the fixings for Reubens! Yumm! My family has a tradition that you have to eat sauerkraut on New Year's Day. They say the more 'kraut you eat, the more prosperous you will be in the new year. I think this is a PA Dutch thing? I called my older daughter, Mackenzie, to let her know I would be making Ruebens later and she said she will be over to have one with me! She and I are the only ones in the house who like them.

Well, off to shower and possibly finish taking down the Christmas decorations. I don't know though - my sewing room is calling to me and I have so many projects I want to complete. I have 2 quilt tops finished that need to be quilted, pj pants for my DD, Taylor, to be made, I want to make myself a new purse...the list goes on and on! The tree may have to wait until tomorrow...
