Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.
As most of you know by now, 2011 has been one of the most amazing years of my life. I'm a bit verklempt to see it go, if you want to know the truth.
But 2012 beckons.
A very Happy New Year to all A Piece of My Mind readers!
1 - May Each Day - Andy Williams
2 - Counting My Blessings - Diana Krall
3 - With a Little Luck - Paul McCartney and Wings
4 - I'm Into Something Good - Herman's Hermits
5 - Theme from Ironiya sudby - Composed by Mikael Tariverdiyev
This is the theme song that runs throughout the Russian New Year's film, Ironiya sudby, which my husband, my mom and I will be watching tomorrow night. We've also ordered a few dishes from a Russian restaurant here in town - Laura's Cafe - including borscht and kinkhali (dumplings.) Plus, my mom has prepared lobster mousse (to substitute for the ruined fish aspic dish featured prominently in the farcical plot) and Russian potato salad, as we're mirroring the New Year's feast shown often in the film.
At midnight tomorrow night, I hope you'll all be raising a glass to toast the year in! Doesn't matter what's in the glass - water will do perfectly.
Of course, at my house we'll be sipping Bottega Il Vino Dei Poeti Prosecco, for which I made a special stop over at Bishop's Cellar on my way home from work. I had my first taste of this when my friends Dawn, Maureen, Shelley and I had a girls' overnight in Wolfville a few years ago. That was the start of my love affair with prosecco.
Happy New Year, everyone! May 2012 be a year where you dare to reach for the dreams you've kept alive in your heart.
