Yes, this is one of those boring posts about how our day is going for the benefit of friends and family.
We're having a nice eclectic New Year's Eve.
- I worked on some French through LiveMocha.
- We went to the zoo with the Rev. Philip Miller (Pastor of Christ Lutheran, Chalmette, LA), his wife Monique, and their children: Grace, Isaiah, Silas, Nathaniel, Sarah Rose, and one yet to be born!
- We bought a gift for a wildebeest (now that is something I have never done before).
- We had dinner at IHOP and called to mind the old days of New Year's Eves past - especially in Ottawa.
- We went home and watched fireworks from the front porch.
- We looked at the pictures we took today.
- We are half-watching the festivities on TV, which is flipping between the local celebrations (instead of a ball dropping at Times Square, we have a Fleur-de-lis at Jax Brewery) and the national stuff. Whoever invented the "mute" button should get a medal.
- If I make it to midnight, I think I'll sip a little B&B. I bought the bottle in 2006, and I think it works like the seals on the dishwasher if you don't use it every few months. I think I should be able to have this bottle done some time in 2014. It's good to have goals. If you haven't had B&B, it really is remarkable. It is only a slight exaggeration to say that you can take a sip, enjoy it, and not even swallow - and it will evaporate in your mouth.
