On the eve of next year...

Today I got some stuff done that I'd been procrastinating. We're not going to do the ice cream today -- it'll be Friday or over the weekend. I did get some supplies for it today, though. I also got supplies for fudge.

This involved a trip to the local Trader Joe's. This marks the first time I've ventured out not in the company of a relative, and was thus interesting and exciting. I managed to miss my exit, and therefore wound up taking an interesting tour of neighboring streets until I blundered onto the correct freeway and got excitingly lost going the wrong direction, but at least then I knew where I was. I eventually got to Trader Joe's after getting turned around.

I hope that accomplishing most of what I set out to get done is a good omen for next year. 2008 was a bit of a rollercoaster, but so much better than some of the hell from 2007.

raranax is making bacon bagels. He has on tango music, and that's making me want to dance. Later, fudge. My aunt is bringing home the shelter dog that she's training, so he'll have a happy new year too.

Everything I was awesome at in 2008, I want to stay awesome at. Everything that needs improving, I want to improve.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
