Happy 2006!

Happy 2006! You’ve gotta love Google’s holiday logos….

Well, unlike my children (ahem), I had a very quiet New Year’s at home with Bill. Truth be told, we both slept through the midnight hour, then woke up, then went back to sleep. Quick, everyone: feign surprise.

This morning we started the day with the family’s traditional gin fizzes—I’ll post the recipe tomorrow. We sat around and read the papers (Sunday Oregonian and Sunday New York Times), then went out for a drive to nearby Willamette Falls. It’s been raining hard here for two weeks and all the rivers are at flood stage. We expected the falls to be spectacular, and we weren’t disappointed--see photo above.

Then, we went to see The Chronicles of Narnia, which was very enjoyable—and very pretty to look at.

Last but not least, home for tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches and for quick chats with Mom and Katie.

A pleasant, unabashed way to welcome 2006. One day down, 364 to go….
