Happy New Year  
So today is January 1st. The year is off to a very good start for me. Chris only got one job today and they let him off early. I was so happy he came home in the afternoon. We then went out to dinner. Yesterday we celebrated by listening to Spanish Christmas and New Years songs from my childhood. I translated a lot of them for him and had fun looking up Spanish words I heard every year but never knew what they meant. Lots of fireworks went off in our neighborhood at midnight.

I also started working on my Bullet Journal again yesterday. I did my best to finish December in one day. Not happening. Even with the simplified layout I made I could not finish it. I love the cover I made for it though with Fear and the motto being "The Hopes and FEARS of all the YEARS". Today I worked on the inking and finished the layout finally but still am not finished. I don't know if I'll have time to work on it tomorrow but I'm sure with one more day I can finish it. I missed my November video update because of this. It's not finished either but it's laid out. It just needs to be colored. I want to finish December then do a flip through of 2018. All three months of it.

And I already have a dilema. I need a new cover drawing for 2019. Remember the old one was Bullet on a 2018 banner. Chris suggested George. I'm not against that, but what would he be doing? What pose? AND I also need a cover idea for January itself. Any ideas for that? Please comment. I also have to pick a theme for January. Hum one of my theme ideas was Solan and George so that could work. Here are some other themes I have considered.
Nepenthes, SpongeBob, Jurassic Park, Jeeps, Moby dick and Stunt Scabs. Probably most of you won't know what the last one is. The Stunt Scabs were the villains from an obscure 90's cartoon called Stunt Dawgs that was very smart. Lots of play on word and intelligent humor. Most likely why the show did so poorly. Too fast and too intelligent for the audience. One of my all time fave shows. So yes please comment. I do need some help coming up with two cover ideas for the 2019 page and the January page.

And tomorrow I'm excited. We might be booking a cruise. Wish me luck on that. It's only 2019 by I'm alraedy thinking about 2020 which is when I want this to take place. It's so far in the future I can't even book a flight if we get this. An Alaska cruise. One of my dream destinations. I can then cross that off my bucket list. I really do have a bucket list. It's in one of my idea notebooks. I have always been a long term goal setter. So that's the plan for tomorrow and then the rest of the day off. The year is off to a great start. Hope it keeps going this way.

Happy New Year, Des!

I'm glad Chris only got one job and then spent time with you.

Sounds like fun singing the Spanish songs. That's one language that would be easier for me to learn because I have learnt a little French. I do try to work it out :)

No fireworks in my neighbourhood, but that was good :)

Journal...hmmm...of course, I do like the idea of George being in something, but what? My brain is not working since coming in from sweeping the pergola and shoveling the drain. The Nepenthes idea sounds good, too.

The Alaska cruise sounds very good and I hope you can do it! Next year my sister is going to the Rockies. You'll go past one of my brothers, too, haha :)

Thanks. Happy New Year to you too. I think I forgot to tell you I got your card and really like it. Thanks.
Oh we weren't singing. We just listened to them and read the lyrics. Spanish is an easy language. The verbs are the trickiest things.
Yeah, I need to come up with a good pose and phrase and he should be the cover of the new year.
I hope we can to. It will be amazing I'm sure. Oh that's great she's going to the Rockie's. I've never been. And your brother's in Canada right?

Glad you liked the card :)

Verbs are the trickiest things in French, too.

Yes, my brother is in Canada! Well, one of them :P
