New Year's Haikus

Pictures for you, originally uploaded by DianaP.

It's said what you do
on New Year's Day will be what
you do the year through.

If that is true, then
I will clean out the garage
this entire year.

I will also make
bad haikus for my blog that
you are doomed to read.

Sorry. So very
sorry. I should have planned a
trip to Guam instead.

HAHAHA- very good! How much Champagne DID you have last night? Happy New Year!

Kate- Clearly not enough, if I spent part of the day battling the garage. There was almost 1/2 bottle left at the end of the night, between the both of us. Too tired and full of fatty snacky food for dinner.

Oh no! That means I'll be doing home renovations all year long, while being indecisive about the colours!

Happy New Year :)

Have I mentioned that I love you? Because I really, really do.

And hey, since you're going to be cleaning all year, why not take a trip to Minnesota and start on my room? It is somewhat garage like. I promise to read all the haikus with glee.

Great! I promise to read your Haikus all year round!

Happy 2006!

Holy GARAGE! Now you have to post the "after" pics.

We just cleaned out the basement today. The old, Michigan, stone, spider-webby, soon to host a new furnace basement. Fun stuff (gag).

Sadly enough, my garage looks worse, so don't feel so bad. Garbage day can't come soon enough! So maybe it means you'll have a productive year....Happy New Year!!

Say what you will on
the subject of your haikus
I really like them.

Mine, on the other
hand, are really quite stinky
like limberger cheese.

Happy New Year!

p.s. I totally relate to the whole garage thing.

Karen- At least you will have lots to show for this coming year!

Dana- Hopefully your room has none of the rodent doodies or scads of dead bugs. Fortunatly, I found nothing living that jumped out at me.

Beth- I certainly won't hold you to such a hasty promise.

Gerah- Creepy goodness! At least with the severely cold weather we had earlier, all dead in the garage. Trash day is tomorrow and can't wait for all to be gone. Poor Charles has to schlepp all the bags of garbage and recycling to the road. As it is picked up every-other-week out here, will be quite the project. May post an after picture when all cleared away.

Colleen- Here's hoping! Productive but not too productive. Need my loafing, you know.

Teri- Hahaha! We live not too far from the nation's only remaining limberger cheese producer, or so their sign claims.

luckily we do not have a garage, or ours would look worse than yours. Maybe you will spend the year writing haikus and become a famous poet and a mega celebrity in Japan, home of the haiku. Perhaps your book tour to promote your works of collected haiku poems will have a stop over in Guam making the circle eerily complete. Proceeds from your book will enable your to hire a professional organizer for your garage.

See, 2006 will be a great, although strange year...

p.s. How fares the old RFer?

Stacy- Ach! No garage! The thought of having to scrape ice and snow off the car each morning keeps me from letting the garage get too out of control and unable to house the cars.

Now THAT would be an interesting year. Pity Japan, though.

Teri- Better and better, thanks. I am holding out for 2006 to be an end to all this nonsense.
