I'm not much a night owl and having some flu/cold sickness circulating through the house lately doesn't help. I did stay up long enough to say Happy New Year to the fam and see the peach drop (on TV).
Bringing in the New Year here in Georgia was a little different from what we were used to in northern MN. The peach drop I mentioned was supposed to bring in 100,000 people... gulp. I first asked Tim, "was it 10,000 people that are going to be in downtown Atlanta?" as I watched Dick Clark's Rockin New Year's and Atlanta's Peach drop. He informed me it was more like 100,000! Wow. Pretty much the population of the 2 cities where I grew up... crazy.
Then as I was closing my eyes and laying down to bed I could hear the fireworks going off across the lake. Opening up my blinds I could see through our trees multi-colored lights flickering in the distance. That was cool. Also cool were the happy sounds I could hear downstairs.
Alec talking to his cousin on X-box live. And Kyra and Abbi typing happily away on their computers.
I didn't get any photos of the fireworks last night but I did snatch some snapshots of the New Year's sunrise.
Where's that sun? There's the lake. (and it's not frozen, which I know you all know but I have to keep telling myself that!) These are taken from our back deck.
There it is! Happy New Year Sun!
I'm much more of a sunrise girl.
