Happy New Year!

I wish you all health and happiness for this wonderful new year that is ahead of us. It has finally arrived so now I can finally crack open a book that will count for a 2009 challenge. Woohoo! I hope everyone had a safe New Year's Eve. My husband and I had a nice evening together at our movie theater watching The Curious Incident of Benjamin Button. I must say that I thoroughly LOVED that movie. I would definitely suggest seeing this one, it was a very thought-provoking movie and I was still thinking about it as I was going to sleep last night.

I think I am going to spend the rest of my day reading and then making some wild rice soup for dinner. It has been so cold here for the last week that I just want a nice bowl of hot soup to warm my bones.

Then I need to pack a weekend bag because I offered to chaperone for a christian youth conference this weekend. At least I don't have to drive so I can just hook up my ipod and open a few books and be on my way!

2008 may have been great, but 2009 is looking mighty fine! Here is to a New Year!

Hey,

Thanks for stopping by today!

I agree with you the Benjamin Button was a great movie, much better than the short story (I was so disappointed when I got home and read the text!). Good luck on your 2009 challenges!
