the first day of 2008

Happy New Year everyone!

This has been one lazy day around my house. How about yours? So lazy, I had intended to write this post this morning, while I was watching the Rose parade. Here it is after dinner and not only have I not logged into Bl*gger all day, but I haven't done much else either :]

I really didn't have much to say today, but I did want to give you the following links. If you enjoy good photography, you will enjoy these "best" photos of the year.

This is Reuter's site where they have posted pictures of the year 2007. Reuters is a news agency and most of their photos are incredible and thought provoking.

Then there's National Geographic's top ten photos of 2007. There's some interesting stories with these.

Speaking of photos, I came across an interesting site that publishes interesting photos. It's MangoFalls and what they do is post photographs from film found in old, abandoned cameras. They have no idea who took the photo(s) or why. Most of them are really old which is what makes them so interesting. Fashion, cars, homes, and people have changed a lot in the last few decades.

Hope you enjoy all these sites as much as I did.

Yes, very lazy. Then I got an unusual burst of mental energy and did some homeschool organizing. It was long overdue.

I worked New Years Eve from 7PM until 0730AM on the 1st. I almost always work that night because it's not a real big holiday at our house. There is always someone at work who asks me to work for them so they can go out. My husband and I aren't "partiers" and if we were home together we would be sleeping before the ball dropped! I imagine it won't be long and the kids will want to stay up and hang out with us, that might be fun. But for this year I traded Easter and I would much rather have Easter Holiday off to celebrate and spend the day with my kids! I am already looking forward to that! It will be here before we know it!
