Ruth’s OLW for 2009

Happy New Year!  I hope that you have been soaking up the joys of vacation.  I have and plan to continue doing so for the next three days.  Soon enough the daily grind will be back.

Delight.  Yes, that is my delightful One Little Word for 2009.  I’m looking forward to all that I have to learn and to live in regards to this word.  If you are participating in OLW this year, I’d like to encourage you to check out the definition on the Merriam Webster Website (btw, this is one of my favorite sites!).
