It was a quiet night in our home on New Year’s Eve. We ran errands during the afternoon and dined early on Vietnamese cuisine. The rain had lessened over the evening which allowed us to hear the creek roaring in our back yard. A new DVD entertained us until we moved on to PBS’s New York Symphony special. Hot cocoa and popcorn was our treat for the evening, plus a small cup of Bailey’s Irish Cream. George found a comfortable location on the floor until the bedroom door was left open in which he procured our bed. Explosions of firecrackers and M80’s abounded at midnight. Who knew so many people had gathered such great fireworks! George wasn’t phased by the ruckus but the cats were not to be seen. I was concerned that the explosions would disorient them. At 3am I checked only to discover they were anxiously waiting for more kibble.
The images are of our back yard on this first day of 2010 plus Nigel watching from the dining room window. Nothing significant, just a break in the rain.
New years resolution? To create more art than 2009!
May the New Year bring peace and art to you all!
