New Year’s Day. Up early. Had two breakfast guests Jim and G.B. Lo did many things. Took care of ornaments etc. put away in attic. I did kitchen work then out to cabin. Watched parade on color T.V. Fed cats milk let them on porch. Lo took care of water softener and fed ponies. Burned greens and cut up tree. No cleaning, too tired so just picked up. Came home at 3:30, so very quiet.
