Happy New Year


This will the last post for me this year as I work the next two days 12 hours then off one day and work Sunday.I wanted to wish all of you a Happy New Year.
I thought yesterday was a perfect ending to the year as we got about 6 inches of snow which made everything look magical as it always does here when it snows with all the fir trees. It looks like a Christmas card and it makes everything seem so quite and magical. It is all melting today but it was pretty while it lasted.
I think on Saturday when I am off for New Years we will have this recipe for: (click on red links for recipes)
Black eyed Peas from the Homesick Texan
Peanut Butter Collard Greens from the Homesick Texan
Cornbread
Cake Balls from Tasty Kitchen ( which are all the rage where I work) . I can't get the link to work just go to the site and type in cake balls.

My hope is to live with intention this coming year and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.


Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. Benjamin Franklin

Gorgeous photo! I am very jealous of your snow if not your work schedule. Maine keeps missing the storms. My kids love playing in the snow. Good to get some more book recommendations on your other blog. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, my friend. Yes, the snow was a wonderful ending to the year - and so pretty. I feel the way you do about living intentionally and in a more simple way than I have. It will give time to do what's important along the way. ~Adrienne~

I am pleased to report that a pot of those black-eyed beauties simmers on the stove as I write this. MMMMmmmmm!

May 2010 bring you "Enough" to feel fully blessed. I have chosen "peace wrapped in love without judgment" as my guiding light this coming year. I step off the threshold of this new year into richly tilled furrows of possibility. It is good . . .

Happy New Year, sweet friend!

XO!
