Did Granny New Year find you?

Happy New Year All,

Did Granny New Year find you?

I’m hoping everyone’s New Year will be off to a great start.

There is always promise, hope and of course, new year's resolution to be had. I don’t usually go for this sort of thing because I know it’s just a huge letdown when I break my promises to myself. Which is why I mostly don't announce them to the world.

Anyway, this year I’ve decided to post a few.
  1. Have the mortgage paid off by the end of this year.
  2. Find a forever fur friend pet. Yup the witch has been looking for a small dog or fun loving cat or even a bunny who needs a good home.
  3. Lose some weight and eat even more healthier than we do. Sorry Hubby I’ve found lots of great tasting veggie recipes with kale. Plus walking a dog will help, right!!!
  4. Buy a set of snow shoes so we can enjoy the outdoors more in the Winter.
  5. Paint the upstairs bathroom and add a new mirror and shelf. Oh Hubby I have some plans for you. Don’t worry this will be easy compared to the Gazebo you built us.
  6. Finally buy a generator.
  7. Host a murder mystery party
  8. New lamps for computer room and down stairs.
  9. Try to do acts of kindness more often so I can watch the recipient's reactions. I find they cheer me up more just giving them anonymously .
  10. The last one I won’t be sharing with anyone but myself because it is the hardest and most personal decision I will be making. I don’t need the added pressure of having printed it out if I fail.
So there you have it the goals and challenges for 2014.

Thanks for all who still hung around during my absence. That’s what great blogger friends do. (Canadian Saver, I miss you!)

I’ll leave you with a few pictures of my beautiful Amaryllis

Hopefully the last one is to blog more often...I hope? And yes, is Canadian Saver ever coming back? I know she's out there reading and commenting occasionally:) I think we need to have goals but perhaps not deadlines. I may try to find a furry friend also, just not sure when yet.

Hello Friend and Happy New Year! It's good to see a post from you, and I'm sorry I missed the one of your gingerbread house--What a great job you did on it! But I've no doubt that the great goals you've set for this year, will be accomplished! Thank-you for your always kind and thoughtful comments you've left on my blog, and I'll look forward to reading about your new addition on yours!!

Granny didn't visit but Murphy did!

Great to see you posting again!! I am really considering too... I have LOTS of goals for 2014 too and it helps if I put them on "paper"

I think snow shoes would be cool, thinking about buying some too!

I too grew up with Granny New Year. No one besides my family has ever heard of this tradition. I am English, Irish, Swedish, and French so I can't imagine where it came from given my family background. There is little information that I can find on this; only the bit that you provided. Glad there is someone else that also celebrates this tradition!
