LAST MONDAY OF 2013

GOOD MORNING WORLD

My world is in great shape this last Monday of 2013.  I am up and busy early this morning.  I have three grandchildren still asleep upstairs.  Or quietly playing video games as they are not down for breakfast yet.  We have today planned and it is full of fun.  Legos and Tacos – quite a combination.  Tomorrow we are going to celebrate New Year’s Eve in style.  Our menu will be appetizers and sparkling grape juice.   Most anything goes at Grandmama’s house!!!

I have decided not to focus on looking back.  The TV shows will be doing that enough.  I am certain there will be retrospectives of all the good and bad of the year with respect to Politics, Entertainment – though I am not so sure those are two different categories this year – Sports, News, Weather, Financial reports, Deaths, Milestones  and all the trivia and minutia you care to review.  I am looking forward.

I found this little jar on facebook that someone had shared.  It was a jar like a Mason Jar or canning jar.   On it was a simple bow and a piece of paper taped to it.  The words below were written on the paper.

STARTING JANUARY 1ST…

WRITE GOOD THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO YOU

ON LITTLE PIECES OF PAPER

—SURPRISE GIFTS

—ACCOMPLISHED GOALS

—THE BEAUTY OF NATURE

—“LOL” MOMENTS

—MEMORIES WORTH SAVING

—DAILY BLESSINGS

THAN ON DECEMBER 31ST TAKE OUT ALL THE

PIECES OF PAPER AND READ ALL THE

AMAZING THINGS THAT HAPPENED

TO YOU IN 2014!!!

I thought this an amazing idea and am going to try it for myself this next year.  In fact tomorrow night I am going to gift each of our grandchildren with their own jars.  My intent is to attach a pencil and note pad somehow so they will not have to look around for either when they want to put a note in their jar.  

For this year I think when we have our appetizers and juice as we watch the ball drop we will simply talk about all the good things that have happened to us this past year.  I am anxious to see if they all can stay up till 12!  If we have enough movies and games bet they will.

I am hearing rumblings above so my day is about to begin for real!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL……………..early!!!

…..ONWARD TO MORE MISADVENTURE…
