Being old fuddy duddies, hubby and I slept in the new year. We went to bed at 10:15 and woke up about 6:30 this morning. We both slept in a little (he is usually up at 5 a.m.; I get up at 6 a.m.).
I had not planned to spend my day taking day Christmas decorations, but hubby was home and not doing much, so I put him to work. We rearranged the space in the spare room where I store things (which is also his office now), and we began the tedious process of putting glass in boxes and making sure precious cargoes are well-packed before placing things into storage for another 11 months.
Ah, it is so nice to have the space back. The tree is lovely but it takes up half of the living room.
At lunch, we had black-eyed peas. A friend insisted I eat these sometime today, so I bought a can of Luck's and heated them on the stove. I doused mine with ketchup and hubby doused his with pickle relish. He had two bowls so they must taste better with pickles than ketchup. I think black-eyed peas taste like dirt.
After that I have been piddling at the computer. What a time-waster this little box is. Between Facebook, reading blogs, reading email, playing solitaire, reading news articles, watching youtube videos, and listening to music, one need never leave a chair. If the thing would pop candy bars out for sustenance I suppose that would be all anybody would need. We could sit here and chat on Facebook for eternity, chowing down on Milky Ways.
I hope that you have a bountiful and beautiful 2013, dear reader. Thanks for sticking with me for the new year and what comes after. Hopefully I will post interesting things in the days to come.
Many blessings to you all.
