Good Morning 2012

(And who else but Jerry would send this to me) I think he thinks it looked like me!!!!!!!!!!

Thought for the day:
Scatter confetti over the floor, sweep an old year out the door!

~ Myra Conn Livingston

DAY TWO OF A BRAND NEW YEAR! What are we going to do with it today?
Okay one of things I'm going to do is throw this snowball at you! Pass it along...

Hope you are having a GREAT New Year Sandie,
My Grandson learned how to throw snowballs in his daycare.

They throw cotton balls. For next year, I bought him a bag of pom poms to throw.

Susan said...

Love the quotes, Sandie. Soooo nice.

I saved the one about a kind word warming three winter months! Loved it.

Hope your day is super. Susan

Good morning, Ms. Sandie!
Gurl, I don't need to throw confetti on the floor to have something to sweep away. Mr. Has been on vacation and so have I so I have been quite lax around the house. This is our last vacation day, then tomorrow it is sweep, clean, and back to the regulat routine! Enjoy your Monday!!

Put your tooth back in and change your mittens and this won't look like you at all. Much.

Hehehehehe!

Shug said...

Good, happy morning Sandie.... I sure love that thought for today.
Have a great day...

Debbie said...

I'm thinking that confetti idea might work just fine with the dead pine needles I have around here. Serves me right for decorating with the real stuff and then leaving town, doesn't it.

So... off to sweep the yukky 2011 out the door.

Sandy said...

YEAH FOR 2012...

Have a happy one~!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Jill said...

Jim said...

Happy New Year, Sandie!

Today Mrs. Jim will take down our Christmas tree and go to the mall.

Both of us will meet our granddaughter at the MacDonald's on the Interstate on her way back to work. She is buying a new car to take back to Oklahoma with her.

Loved that quote by William Arthur Ward. By the way, the snowball missed me. Hee Hee!!

Sandra said...

don't think that snowball will reach me, it will be all melted unless it waits until tomorrow and it will be cold enough it might get all the way

laurie said...

I'm with Jill, missed me missed me now you gotta kiss me!
Its always a happy place to visit this is!!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

Happy New Year...I like that phrase

Debby@Just Breathe said...

It's not nice to throw snowballs!
Hope your have a great day.

Lynn said...

Happy 2012, Sandie!

Belle said...

Great poem! We took the cat to the vet today. She got hit by a car but she is okay. We are happy about that! If we could only keep her in the house this year! She's a sly one.

Rhonda said...

I've have not giggled today, and that is when I realized I have not stopped to visit my Chatty Crone ...now I giggle..thanks Sandie

Ann said...

Well you missed me with the snowball but it landed all over the place and let me tell you that was one huge snowball. I think parts of it are still falling out of the sky :)

Red Rose Alley said...

LOVE the Confetti quote. I hope the New Year shines a bright face on you. Be back to visit again soon.

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

After one month of constant cleaning, cooking, sweeping up, and trying to make everybody happy, I don't think I could handle the thought of any confetti on my floor. I will pass on that suggestion.

SweetMarie said...

I wish we could have snowballs here. :)
Have a great week Sandie!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hope you all did have a great day, Sandie... We have extremely cold weather now --temps in the 20's and going down into the teens tonight... Brrrrrrrrr... We've had snow flurries --but not enough to make a snowball to send back to you..
Hugs,
Betsy

Grandma Bonnie said...

I would love to throw some snow balls with the grand children that would bring in my New year just right. Have a great start to your New Year.

DeanO said...

Ms. Sandie, If I scattered confetti on the floor I'd probably forget to sweep it out...and then I'm in trouble. Happy New Year, I love your blog as it keeps me smiling :)

That corgi :) said...

LOL with the confetti; I'd be so neurotic I would have to clean it up the minute I threw it! A snowball though, on the other hand would melt.....before it had to be picked up!

betty

Dragonfly Treasure said...

LOL Love it!
Happy New year!
