Good Tuesday Mornin' Yall,
"HAPPY NEW YEAR" everyone. I do hope that each and every one of you had a great New Year's Eve and ready to start a brand New Year. It is 33 degrees with a windchill of 23 degrees here right now. We are also under a Wind Advisory as well. It's suppose to be a windy day today, so that will make it feel alot colder than it really is. It is suppose to get down into the teens for tonight and tomorrow night also. The Sun is shinging outside as well. Today will be a good day to stay in and eat our Black-Eyed Peas.
This is a New Year for me blogging as well. Since I started in September of last year, but only got started going pretty good in October, this will be the first full year of blogging for me. I know most of you have been blogging for at least a year or longer, and I'm looking forward to my one year anniversary of blogging as well. There are still some new comers that have recently started blogging as well. Just hang in there and you will really enjoy it and you will learn how to do things along the way. I know I am still learning things and still have lots more to learn. Maybe we can all learn together.
As you know, last night was New Year's Eve. We stayed home. I was feeling very nice, LOL, and yesterday afternoon I asked my hubby if he wanted to have his brother and his girlfriend over last night and he said that would be okay. Hubby had tried calling his brother but couldn't get no answer. I tried later on and left a message on his cell phone. Hubby's brother called him last night around 6:30p.m. and hubby invited them over. They came over around 8:30p.m. and stayed till about 12:30a.m. I had fixed my Hore'derve tray of olives, baby dill pickles, cocktail sausages, shrimp, cheese squares, and we had some chips and dips as well. Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve came on at 9:00p.m. CST here and then broke away at 10:00p.m. for our local news. It resumed at 10:30p.m. CST and we watched it and saw the ball drop from New York's Times Square. There sure was alot of people there. About 11:15p.m. I switched over to one of the Memphis, TN stations and watched the countdown again from New York. But they showed the ball dropping at Midnight our time. So, we all rung in the New Year together. The girls had their Apple Cider, I had my Champagne, and hubby had his bottle of beer. I only had about a half of a half a glass of Champagne. I guess since it was a cheap bottle of Champagne, the taste wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Maybe this New Year's Eve I will be able to afford a better quality bottle of Champagne. I do hope everyone had a great New Year's Eve Celebration in whatever you did.
For our supper last night, I had fixed a package of Maple flavored Bacon, scrambled some eggs, made some gravy, and opened a can of biscuits up. Our next door neighbors had went to a party somewhere for a while, and left their Daughter and her son at home, but they had locked their door and told them to stay with us. They were planning on being back around 8:00p.m. We had them for supper as well. Since it is breakfast, my youngest Daughter calls it Brupper. LOL. So, if you see this new word on my post this coming year, you will know what it means. LOL.
Last night while we had company, I cooked my Black-Eyed Peas with a Ham Hock. I put them in the refrigerator late last night before I went to bed. Later on today I will heat them back up and fix a pan of homemade Buttermilk cornbread, and I'm going to fix my Cabbage Casserole as well. Hubby said yesterday afternoon that is how he wanted the cabbage fixed. He really loves my Cabbage Casserole. That is going to be our Menu for this New Year's Day. I forgot to mention above also that last night while we was having our little New Year's Eve Party, that hubby played his guitar for us as well. He has really gotten good at playing and singing over the past year.
Well, guess I'll go for now. I am just now having my first cup of coffee. Me and hubby woke up around 9:00a.m. I have some more laundry to do today as well. I hope each and everyone of you has a great New Year's Day. Take care my friends and may God Bless Each and Everyone of you. Let's all strive to have a great New Year together.
LOVE & HUGS,
