The end!

It is ridiculously cold here in the South and it will be this cold all week!  We haven't seen these temps in years.  School has even announced instead of uniforms, the kids can wear warmer clothes when they return on Wednesday.  We are not used to this at all and do not even own warm enough clothes or heavy coats. 
Our New Year's Eve was just as cold, but we still spent many hours outside popping fireworks.  Clint kept a fire going in the fire pit.  I made a huge pot of chicken and sausage gumbo and a few of our neighbors came over to hang out with us.  It was a good night, but much too cold!!   We came inside around 10pm and went back out at 11:57 to set off one big firework and were back inside by 12:02.  It was that cold.  We still have a bunch of fireworks that we haven't touched. 

We're not doing much for this New Year's Day.  My Mom always made a big New Year's dinner, and it still feels strange not having that.  We're getting back on the low carb train though, so we've had more than our share of goodies during the holidays.  It's going to be a simple dinner of ham and smothered cabbage for us today. 

And with that, Holidailies comes to an end.  Happy New Year to all....  Wishing you all a wonderful 2018!!
