Happy New Year!!!

 Here’s to better times ahead for us all! Wishing everyone a happy, safe and healthy 2021.

We had a quiet New Year's Eve at home.  The severe weather they predicted never happened and all we got was a little rain.  We were invited to a couple of NYE parties (yes, people still had parties) but we stayed home.  I fried some shrimp and chicken tenders for the kids.  We had a sandwich tray,  crackers & cheese,  and chips & dip.  We bought a little bit of fireworks to pop ourselves, but the people all around us put on quite a show.  At midnight we were surrounded by fireworks in every direction!  

Today for New Year's dinner I made a pork roast in the Instantpot, smothered cabbage, black eye peas, and a chocolate pie for dessert.  The kids stayed up ALL NIGHT -  it's mid-afternoon and they both claim they never went to sleep.  They won't eat any of of my New Year's dinner (except for the pie,) so they are on their own!  

Plans for 2021? Hmmmm.  I'd like to read more books.  It'd be nice to tackle some of the house projects such as cleaning out the garage and painting the foyer and living room.  Other than that, I really don't know.  New Year, same ole' me!  

Today also marks the end of another Holidailies!  I missed a few days.  It seemed quieter this year with fewer commenters and visitors.  

Now I shall return to my regular unscheduled blogging!!
