Yesterday was an exciting day - NOT! I went to Wally World for milk and bread and of course came home with $120.00 worth of 'stuff'.
Once I got the stuff put away, I started mounds of laundry. How can two people, who rarely go anywhere and definitely don't dig in the dirt, have so many dirty clothes? I changed beds, cleaned bathrooms and did several of those piles of laundry.
Today, down go the Christmasy items around the house. Dasher, Dancer, Comet and Cupid, will shed their hats until next year!
Jim cooked some collard greens (for those of you that don't know what they are, just accept them, and go on. Linda, I know you know!) and black eyed peas. I will make the cornbread today and we have a piece of Jenn's Japanese fruitcake for dessert today. Hopefully, we will have enough 'green money' and 'coins' to see us through another year. Yes, that is a southern tradition.
What are your traditions for the new year?
