Opening a new chapter

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." Edith Lovejoy Pierce


A beautiful winter morning with clear blue skies, sunshine and chilled temps. A fog advisory is in effect for this afternoon. The new year arrived silently, no firecrackers or noise poppers. Woke at 5:20 this morning. Jeff was already up and on the computer typing. I slipped a birthday card in front of the coffee maker for him to discover.
We've just finished breakfast; crispy oven-baked bacon, bagels/cream cheese and mimosas. The indoor/outdoor gangs have been fed and are lying contentedly in the sunshine.
While at Blockbuster yesterday, after our Lowes garden jaunt, WE rented a couple of movies...

                                                               The Help

I'm beginning with The Help. I loved the book and it's characters stayed with me days after finish reading it-- always a sign of a good book.
As the morning progresses we will be working on the other side of the front walkway flower border. It's all coming together. I picked up on some other garden accessory ideas for the front porch as the weeks unfold. We'll be entering spring with an upscale, casual benign neglect look that I love.
Other than this, no plans on tap, so we'll see how the morning shapes up.
A new day beginning with a birthday and a new year... it's ALL good.
