In which Emily waxes melancholy and there is no knitting content.

While I am a big fan of New Year’s as a holiday*, I have never looked forward to having a new year before. I’ve never found anything particularly magical (except for the fireworks) about the turning of the calendar. January 1st is just another day. I have the same baggage, the same relationships, the same talents, the same faults as the day before. I am not at all troubled by that. Good and bad things happen to individuals in every year. Good and bad things happen in the world in every year. Sometimes a year seems to be more weighted toward one end of the spectrum than the other, but it’s still just stuff to live through. I pick up, go on and keep things in perspective**. If I’m lucky, I’ll be a better person for the all of the experiences.

But. Well. I don’t know. This year I feel differently. I am a little ashamed to admit it and am slightly worried that I am setting myself up for something, but I am looking forward to a new year. I have always been fond of the number 7.

Everyone have a fantastic evening and I’ll see you tomorrow! Happy New Year!

*Fireworks AND mandatory greens?! It’s the perfect holiday!

**Except when I don’t. Sometimes I am just mad for a while.

    I love New Years Day. I can do without the fireworks, but give me “greens and beans” and i’m a happy camper 🙂 Wishing you the best in the year 2007!

    There’s nothing wrong with looking forward to the start of a new year. But you’re right, it doesn’t really change much of anything.
    Happy New Year, nevertheless. 🙂

    7 has always been my lucky number – so I am hoping for a banner year. I’m setting the intention to live a year full of joy. (we’ll see how I do!) hah!
    May this be a year of abundant blessings for you and your family.

    Oh yum, greens and beans! Sorry, I just read that up there…I am finally ready to talk bags again, Emily. That is, if you still want one. I’ll send you a pic of a style I like (and already know how to make, which always helps) to see if it suits you and your big honkin’ STR yarn cakes. =)

    Happy New Year!! I look forward to seeing more of the counterpanes! I now know where I had seen it before- my Mother had knit a tiny doll size quilt out of a very similar pattern- I saw it when I was home for Christmas.

    Happy News about the number 7! I know what you refer to as I was in your shoes about 19 years ago and all turned out well. It will for you too!! Hugs and prayers…
