New Year’s Day

Soft sunshine and a sky of pastel blue
greets this New Year’s Day
now that rain has washed
the Old Year away.

    While we didn’t quite make it to stay up to midnight…many folks here watch different items, either ascend or descend until the New Year and sometimes celebrate with fire works. We also have different parades – A big one in California is the Rose Bowl Parade, where the floats are made with flower petals and seeds.
    There are also several marching bands.

    Cheers! And Happy New Year!

    This will be my first time for writing small stones. I find it somewhat intimidating — but have enjoyed reading many of them over the past couple of years. So I jump in, and will wing it until I figure out what I am suppose to do. LOL

    Hope your New Year was a good one … and the upcoming year flourishes and blossoms beyond your wildest imagination. 😀

      You are already writing them Becca. It isn’t an exact science – anything goes! Who’s to say I’m doing it right? I just do what I do. Just notice something, write it down.

      Have a wonderful 2013.
