Our celebrations last night were typical – very quiet. Usually I make a crab quiche for dinner, but we decided to do BBQ shrimp (New Orleans style) instead. It’s a favorite dish and you can just about feel your arteries clogging from all the bacon and butter!!
It was good and we had a salad to go with it and some bread (to mop up all that delicious juice!!).
The evening was spent watching some TV, working on a jigsaw puzzle, reading and knitting. I went to bed at 10:30 and we completely forgot to open the champagne!! Age…..
Today has started off well. Coffee and knitting early and then I made cinnamon pecan waffles for breakfast. I have a bit of laundry going. I’d like to undecorate the tree, but I know Fletch wants it up a bit longer, so I’m not even suggesting it!
The balance of the day will be spent knitting, napping, reading a bit. I’m hoping to take a walk, but right now it is very windy out, so maybe later. We’ll see.
I have my “One Little Word” for 2019 and it is STRENGTH. I mulled over a number of words, but this one kept coming back to me. I’d like to gain more physical strength, but also emotional and mental strength as well. Strength of the Spirit perhaps. To find out what word others have chosen (or what word has “found” them), hop over to Juliann's Blog.
Meanwhile, it’s time for me to get back to some knitting!
