Me & My Muse – Day 177: Starting off Fresh

Well, the dust has settled and a new year is underway.  A year that I’m hoping that will be full of opportunity.

After I gave 2014 a warm welcome, I made my traditional toast with my brother, drinking the sparkling white grape juice that I bought for the occasion.

But this wasn’t actually done first.  No New Year’s celebration would be complete without running outside and honking the car horns, a tradition that one of my parent’s friends started several years ago.  After honking the horns, it was time for the toast.

As for the rest of this day, I rested, got ready for the day and went to work, helping myself to some bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers before I left.  After work, I picked up a coffee energy drink and came home.

In looking ahead, I feel like this is going to be a good year.


Muse:  It will be.  I can feel it!

As for the movie discussion and review, don’t worry.  That will be covered on a later day.

Muse:  Good.  I thought that you forgot about that.

I didn’t.  Now if you will excuse me, I am going to help myself to some more snacks.

Muse:  Help yourself.   I’m going to do the same.  Bye!


I know that this year is going to be a good one.  I always like even years more than the odd ones.  Being born on an even year might have a lot to do with it.  Whatever it is, I have a good feeling about this year.

Today’s high was 14 degrees and the silver lining was having those bacon-wrapped poppers.

To all of you who are enjoying the first day of the year, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Mmm….This leftover queso is soooooo good….
