Happy New Year's Eve!

No cohesiveness this evening, my apologies. Just some random thoughts.

First, I was cutting the tag off a new sweater and something gave me pause. I couldn't help but wonder: why the heck did they give me this?

Do the powers that be at clothing companies think their customers are capable of actually weaving new fabric if the sweater should develop a hole of some sort? And do they anticipate holes forming? Why else would they give us extra yarn? My favorite is when they give you a spare nondescript button. Understandable to include an extra if it's some sort of fancy, unique button that would be hard to replace. But often it's just a plain ol' semi-translucent dealie that can be found at any craft store. Gee, thanks. You shouldn't have. Course, I still keep them. Have to. You never know.

Secondly, lovely sunset to close the year. I like when the sky takes on hues other than those children draw in pictures for the fridge.

I hope my multitude of readers (ha!) enjoys a fantastic New Year's Eve, and a fulfilling 2006.


  1. Is that sunset part of the view from your apartment? I love looking at sunsets.

  2. Yep, that's the view from my apartment, right outside my front door. I agree, sunsets are one of the best simple pleasures in life.

  3. If you want to destroy my sweater...
