10 on 10 – Happy New Year!
For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~T.S. Eliot, “Little Gidding”
Endings and beginnings. That is what this 10 on 10 had in store for us. The end of a year, documented hourly for my current 10 on 10 project. If you are new to my blog you can see my original post here. I used to say that I really disliked New Years Eve, the pressure to celebrate, to enjoy and celebrate the passing of another year. Now that I know myself better, I know that it’s not that I dislike New Years Eve, it’s that I prefer to spend it quietly, contemplatively (is that even possible with children?), and with those that I really love and care about. I never was much of a party girl……well…….not for New Years Eve;)!
This year we decided to spend our evening at my sisters’ house. I spent the day with the kids – hanging out, doing our regular school holiday relaxing thing, and then we packed up the five of us and the dog and hit the road to Beaumont! It was a fun, chill evening with yummy fondue – both cheese and chocolate, some World Juniors hockey (I’m Canadian eh!) and visiting with my sister and Linds<3. It was great. The next morning I was able to hide away in the bathtub for some quiet contemplation. Wonderful way to end and begin our new year.
