I celebrated by falling asleep at about 9 p.m. I figure the ball will drop whether I'm awake to see it or not. And I was right. Happy New Year. Don't quite know where 2005 went but I am looking forward to 2006.
I like new years, whether Jewish, Gregorian, school, whatever. Just like I like a new day -- I'm an optimist for the most part so there's always hope for a better day, year, life...
The logical next step is New Year's Resolutions. Not too many -- to try to do something creative each day, to let my loved ones know they're loved, to minimize negativity, to take better care of myself. Nothing concrete like climbing Mount Everest, well maybe to sell something I've made (as a means of validating myself) So maybe I should add getting rid of the need to validate myself...
Anyways, as part of the something creative each day, I think I finally figured out what to do with the white expanses of Sari and David's chuppah. The flowers at the bottom of the white panels are in purple and lilac. I bought purple and lilac tulle yesterday at Michaels. If I attach the tulle at the top and just above the flowers and then in between, but make tulle pieces longer than the silk, then when the chuppah is suspended overhead, there will be soft draping of tulle. If I stagger the middle attachments between the purple and lilac, it should be a lovely effect. And if I randomly bead the tulle, it might be even nicer. A few chamsot and/or birds here and there and I can see it coming together. And with deep purple ribbon between the panels and maybe on the edges, it should be rather striking. Now to see if theory translates into practice.
