last day of 2012
A thing DH and I love to do is to go to grocery stores out of our area and peruse the selections. The Asian store is a treat! The Russian store is a source of awesome teas and chocolates. There is a store down in the industrial area that has the best butchershop in town. Oh, the sausages we find there! Last time through, we picked up Daffy's Delight which is duck meat with wild mushrooms, some chicken/basil sausage, a kielbassa and a pound of home-made sauerkraut, and a classic venison with sage sausage. We've got some serious feasting ahead of us.
So, the Mayan alpacalips has come and gone, and we still seem to be here. Right this minute, it's next year in Australia and Japan. Time is whistling past my ears, as the tempo of my life slows down. DH and I will spend a quiet night at home, probably nibbling cheese and crackers, sausage and fruit. I may start a jigsaw puzzle which I see as a metaphor for life. Except in real life, of course, it's a 30million piece puzzle, you don't have all your pieces, although you have many pieces that don't belong in your particular puzzle, there are no edges, and the colors keep changing. A jigsaw in a box is so comforting. And it will hold my attention long enough for me to stay awake till midnight. On the other hand, we may just turn in as usual and wish each other happy new year when we wake.
Regardless of which side of the meridian you are, may 2013 be a year filled with pleasure and satisfaction for you. Rejoice!
