new years eve blue moon...... cheers!

i have recently learned that the blue moon happens on new years eve only once every 19 years.  that seemed like as good a good reason to celebrate as any.   this photo is actually taken on the night before the full moon.  a few pooches and myself went out for a cocktail, and i got the shot.  the wierd part is that it actually looks blue! ...

then on the real night, december 31, it was so cloudy we couldnt see a moon at all.   so pooch special k and i decided to make up our own.... its a blue disco ball ornament off of her christmas tree!

the close up shot got blurry but its still pretty.  in the top shot you can see the tree line shadow in the background.
k had this idea to have a bonfire at the beach for new years.  thats a great plan but its approximately 130 snow-covered steps down with a basket of dry wood and a bag of beverages.

the disco ball ended up falling in the fire after a bit but it was an honourable end i think.

theres our champagne with blue curacao on the snowy log.  that bottle ended up falling off the log but we had 3 more.

i was having technical difficulties taking the at the top, then k

by venetian tradition,  if you wear red panties new years eve, then burn them after midnight, the next year will bring good luck. ( im not sure if its that exactly, but close )   since i need all the luck i can get right now,  we gave it a shot.

thats just cool

its probably hard to get the visual of all this, but after climbing down the beach stairs, the lake is right behind us.  surprisingly, it is frozen quite far out already.  well at least it looked that way in the dark.

    i haven't heard of the red knicker tradition!! must keep that in mind for next year!!

    Well I like your disco ball moon!! very inventive!! I haven't been able to get a shot of the moon yet... too cloudy .. and again tonight!! my pic was from a shot I took a few months back in winter.

    Here's to a great 2010 Laura!!! May all your dreams come true!! xxx Julie

  2. I didnt know that it happens once in 19 years and looks like you gave it a deserving celebration. Happy New Year..

  3. That's such an optimistic and enterprising start to the year - if nature doesn't suit, improvise with ornaments. Well done!

  6. Hi Laura...what a fabulous Blue Moon you Pooches made!!! I like the look of that drink and especially that you had 3 more cool...Happy New Year to you and wishing you all good things for 2010...Dzintra♥x

  7. i wonder whose red panties was that? yours? ^_^

    happy new year laura. may the coming years be more meaningful than previous ;)

  8. Now you really had a lovely celebration of the New Year, right down to pantie sacrifice, must of been a bit cool climbing all those stairs without them!
    We also saw a blue full moon on new years eve, as I was driving the taxi around I was thrilled to have it burning brightly and blue lighting the way for me. And the usuual silly people effected by the moon seemed to be calmed by this one I am pleased to say.
    Good luck shall follow along with you this year, no doubt.
    I wonder what the blue curasao tastes like I have never had that drink and certainly not with bubbly, I must try it.

  9. I wish you all the best for 2010.
    May all your wishes come true.
    You seem to havve had a wonderful time at new years eve.

    Have wonderful atuesday.

    Hugs /

  10. A miniature blue disco ball and flaming red panties--sounds like one helluva New Year's Eve and a great way to kick things off.

    Wishing you a happy, healthy year full of adventure, my friend.
