I have a love-hate relationship with New Year’s. Because I’m a morning person who doesn’t enjoy late night events during which people get louder and more inebriated and suffer from Football Fatigue Syndrome (FFS) after being inundated by it during 9 years in Ohio, few of the traditional holiday activities appeal to me. On the other hand, the fact that this is the case caused me to create a New Years tradition of my own a.k.a. a quiet day with the animals and a specifically chosen book accompanied by some personal favorite food and drink. Depending on the weather, the dogs, cat, and I also may do the walk-about. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we enjoy the coziness of the wood fire indoors. In either cases we enjoy each other’s company and the peace and quiet.
Just me and my other not-so-party animals.
