My Two Bits

New Years Eve

It’s groddy outside. Yes, I said *groddy*.

Because it is damp, sorta cool, sorta warm. I need to blow leaves but feel more like taking a nap. The Hubby called from Frankfurt about 2:30 this morning to let me know he’d landed safely… no word about taking off for the next leg of his trip =S.

Groddiness and nap-time aside, I was able to accomplish a bit this morning:
Got my own special homemade from scratch cornbread made (= health)
Corned Beef Brisket and Cabbage (= wealth) is simmering;
Hoppin’ John is simmering as well (black-eyed peas = good luck)

New Years Menu - Cornbread, Hoppin' John, Corned Beef, Cabbage, Rice

New Years Plate

Good Luck, Good Health, Good Wealth!

So I’m set for my midnight pea-party tonight even if I am having to spend it alone. It willl *not* turn into a pity party… unless I drink too much merlot…

This bottle of ‘Sweet Bitch’ is awesome… a Chilean Merlot; gives a sweet bite to your nose as you inhale right before experiencing it’s smooth, fruity flavor as it races over your tongue.

    At least he is headed this way. It may be past the holidays, but won’t it be a special occasion when he does get home. A private one just for the two of you.

    Unfortunately he’s headed in the other direction, just left yesterday after being home 13 days. But… looks like he’ll be home sorta for our 30th wedding anniversary… which will be the first time in about 10 or 12 years that that has happened……..
