happy new year

Here, it's all a smoky mess with people shooting up fireworks from their front steps across the sky. (R complains every time about the waste of money and the noise. The cat goes into hiding.)
In paradise, people pop hundreds of balloons, which can be very noisy, too.
In Ireland, the bells ring while people get seriously drunk.


  1. Happy New Year, sabine.

    Where I live, there are some people who shoot off cannons from points outside of city limits. I went to bed early. With earplugs!

    It's a frosty foggy New Year's Day here. This is a walking town. People are up and out walking early, even on New Year's Day.

  2. Thank you and happy new year to you, too. Would you believe it, they are still sending up (?) fireworks here 20 hrs later.

  3. May your cup runneth over with the things you wished for, dear Sabine.

  4. Thank you, Ellena. A very happy one for you as well.

  5. Dear Sabine-Happy New Year! Thank you for your beautiful blog. May this coming year bring you more health and wellbeing.

    In lovingkindness,
