New Year's Eve 2008

It's the last day of the year. I can't say I'm sorry to see it go. I haven't made any resolutions or even any plans; I tend to break the former in a matter of minutes and I can't think of anyone with whom I'd really want to celebrate the 2010's onset. I work tomorrow for part of the day and I'm thinking I'll take myself out for an early dinner, come home, and at midnight, crack the bottle of raspberry champagne a friend gave me when the ball drops at Times Square and try to think of the good things. It works for me.

Here's Diana Krall, whose glorious voice I absolutely love, backed by the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra with a wonderful rendition of an old standard. And watch the conductor -- did you ever see anyone loving his work more?

Hope y'all are spending New Year's in a way you enjoy!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Good Morning, Kay. I think you have a good plan for spending this evening. We are also glad 2008 is over no matter what 2009 promises (threatens). I have long ago stopped the nonsense of making resolutions and I keep what ever goals I form general and changeable. It is easier on the psyche that way. Happy New Year and may it surprise us by being bette than we expect or fear.

  2. Here's to a better year for all of us! Happy New Year, Kay.
