Happy New Year’s Eve! – Poem

Andreja Peklar

This illustration was sent in by Andreja Peklar to help us ring in the new year. She was featured earlier this year on Illustrator Saturday.

Have a happy, safe celebration. If you take any pictures and want to share them, I will post them this week.

Here is a poem sent in by Hally Franz:

An Introvert’s Dilemma


It’s New Year’s Eve, and I have not a clue,

As to what I am doing, so I’ll run it by you.


Shall I put on heels and make-up and glitz,

For a glamorous evening down at The Ritz?

Or shall I stay home with Ryan Seacrest,

Dressed in my blue jeans instead of my best?


Perhaps dinner and dancing for a romantic night,

My hubby and I might stay out ‘til daylight.

Thought sometimes it’s hard to stay out so late,

When it’s been twenty-five years since you’ve been on a date.


We’ll have some friends over for board games and soup,

My skill in Balderdash will throw them all for a loop.

Of course, I’ll have to cook yet another meal,

And, if I liked to cook, it would be no big deal.


It’s New Year’s Eve, so communing is key,

One more chance to socialize, how lucky are we?

More time and friends, more time with fam,

Another minute might put my head in a jam.


Thanks for your input, thanks for your ear,

I’ve made a decision on how to ring in the year.

I’ll cozy up with my jammies, book, and hot tea,

And spend the whole festive evening with little old me.


Check back on Friday for Erika Wassell’s Guest Post.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. A very happy New Year to you! 🙂


  2. Enjoyed the illustration and poem. Hot tea and a book sounds like my kind of choice!


    • Carol,

      My plans fell through, so I ended up revising a little on my book and then curled up with a book and watching the ball come down in TV. Couldn’t put the book down, so I didn’t get to bed until 4 am. Have you read Outlander? It is so good, except that she has written 8 books so far in the series and each is over 1100 words. I am on book four. I have a ton of new books that I want to read, but I keep wanting to read the next book of Outlander. Now I am trying to read two books at once. Not sure how that will work out. Wishing you a totally awesome 2015.
