Start As You Mean To Go On

I probably got it from my mum, but I've always had this superstition that you should do on New Year's Day what you want to keep on doing for the rest of the year. To whit, today I have
  • Taken Robinson for a nice long walk around the golf course this morning

  • Taken both dogs out for a walk in the park in the afternoon

  • Taken photographs and

  • Played with photoshop

  • Done a tiny bit of gardening (noticing in the meanwhile that the hellebores are in bud)

  • Read

  • Played a little Zelda

  • Done some work on my 160 online course, and

  • Blogged!

  • Before bed, I shall also watch a dvd.

    My kids would give you high fives for the Zelda; I'll high-five you for the blogging :-)

    I have a question for you, since you and I must be more or less the same age and have read similar books in our childhoods. Do you recall a book in which a girl waxes and wanes (threateningly--like with the threat of death) with the moon, because of some metal bracelet she gets on her arm? ...it's all I can remember of the plot--except that I'm not sure I understood the resolution--but that image sure stuck in my mind. Any ideas?

    Whoo. No... it rings a bell, though. Now I'm going to be wracking my brains...

    Oof--sorry to pass the brain wracking on! I think there are websites where one can ask these sorts of questions; I may try to find one (but not urgently...) and if I do, and if I get an answer, I'll share it!
