a holly, jolly january 1st!

yesterday was a very fun first day of 2013!

  • a sleep-in…until 6:45 a.m.!
  • a balanced cardio/weights/stretching workout
  • the traditional watching of the rose bowl parade with dad [sidenote: no one in the family can stand watching the parade except for me and dad; our tradition of plunking down in front of the tv and viewing the spectacular floats and invigorating marching bands dates back to at least 1980! a new year’s day without the rose bowl is just not the same!].


  • the traditional cleaning of the condo casa: i gave myself 1.5 hours to power-cleanse -> that time frame proved sufficient!
  • the traditional mid-afternoon walk: yesterday was sunny and crisp -> thoroughly enjoyable and mind-clearing!
  • family + social time at uncle paul and sharon’s from late-aft to early eve, with mom and dad, cousins joel and alex -> i loved meeting up with the fam!
  • throw in some knitting, some reading, some tooth flossing, and january 1st, 2013 was an all-around great day.

on today’s agenda:

  • a noon-time catch-up visit with joanne
  • winter coat shopping -> i am seriously considering a puffy coat, i cannot believe i am typing those words


  • the store this eve: it’s run club night so it’ll be social city! love it!

what was the best thing about YOUR new year’s day? i liked how BALANCED my day felt!

    The puffy coat episode on Seinfeld was hysterical. George is such a boob!! Happy New Year, Cathy!

    My New Year’s was a nice stay-at-home kind of day! A little thinking about the coming year…some reading, some tv watching, family time. A good day.

    Happy New Year! That sounds like such a fun tradition with your Dad, when my Dad was alive, watching It’s a Wonderful Life on Christmas Eve was our tradition. πŸ˜€

    Sleeping in until 6:45?! I don’t think I got up before 9 the last four days, and I was in bed before midnight! πŸ˜€ #ilovesleep!

    Happy New Year, Cathy! I love your annual, Rose Bowl parade, tradition with your dad. How fun!
    Yesterday, my girls and I stayed in our PJs all day- it was a nice, relaxing day. That was the highlight of my New Year’s day. Oh, and Darren and I booked a long weekend to NYC in 2 weeks! So excited. Love that city!
    Enjoy your day and all the best in 2013!
