An unforgettable New Year's Eve!

Life is full of suprises and we never know what would happen in every moment of our lives. 
New Year's Eve, everything went smoothly earlier that day.The sky was in a good humor and enchanced the color of winterland.   

I had taken these pictures after I had been to a shop, who already had an ongoing sale. Fifthy percent discount for all Christmas decorations. There were lots of people there although Christmas is already over. I went there to see if I can find something to take with me to the Philippines since I will be there at the end of January. 

I am always fascinated by heaven and I couldn't resist taking pictures everytime I see different formations up there. Luckily, mobil phones has camera in it, so I go.

Did you noticed that sky pictures are awesome. Heaven is changing it's colors all the time. New every morning just like God's love.

So, for the rest of my unforgettable New Year's Eve. I arrived home at at one o'clock pm. The turkey was already in the oven. Credit to my hubby.
It was a six kilos turkey and was more than enough for four of us, but my husband couldn't find smaller. Maybe we have to eat turkey for the rest of the week:)

While I wait for the food, I finished crotheting this wool slippers that should be done before Christmas as a gift to someone, but.....time's dilemma...
At last, I made it before New Year's Eve:)


This turkey was done at four pm...very early to eat, but.....we were all hungry.

My daughter came home too at the same time, after her work at the nearby mall. She was still wearing her uniform, and I still haven't change for the occasion and so  my hubby, who had done all the cooking. My mother-in -law came and she was the only one who was dressed for the occasion.

I made waldorf salad, set the table and we ate and finished the meal with ice cream as dessert.

After eating, our daughter dissappeared to prepare herself to celebrate New Year's Eve with friends. My mother-in-law went home after taking a cup of coffee.

Well, there was no use of freshing up. I put on my comfy attire 
( jogging pants and t'shirt) lay down on the couch and began reading " English Grammar for dummies". I hope it could help me to write the year 2014. After half an hour, I got tired of reading and concentrate myself in watching films on tv with my hubby.....waiting for midnight because this lady had plans to take pictures when the sky exposes different light formations......but....
Half hour before midnight, my stomach ache so much that I did the waiting for fireworks in the toilet. Just didn't know why I had nausea. I was not pregnant.. being already a grandmother and I wasn't even drinking alcohol. There was no problem with the food either. I saw stars, not in the sky, but in my head. Tears...dripp...dripp like a flood, not because I was happy, but because of pain. Thanks God for pain reliever that reduced the pain. While my husband watch the fireworks in heaven and kept nugging me to take pictures....I wandered to the fireworks...just peace and serenity. My unforgettable " New Year's Eve!

Beginning this year with this prayer:
New Year
Jesus, let us continue this year to hear your melodious voice and to feel the warmth of your embrace.
 Be filled with your heart's desires. Thank you for leading us to the narrow path where we can just concentate on you and not to the wide roads where we can get lost.
Let us instead savor the beauty of your holiness:)

Thank you for giving us a meaningful life and
 help us to seize every opportunity to spread life around us. For your glory and honor. Amen
