We have a little less than 12 hours to go. It's overcast here & humid but a cold front is coming through in the next day & we may have a low of 53 degrees very cold for Isla Mujeres, MX. We have family visiting & 6 kids under 7 so we are having a bbq at home with brats, saurkraut, onions, peppers, onion rings, fries, a salad & dark chocolate frosted brownies. Tomorrow night, we will do an adult only dinner at a Mediterranean restaurant downtown. Happy New Year!

I don't make them any more!! Too many got lost on the wayside the Very next day!! However, this year, I didn't say them, just acted on them and started by hacking into my wardrobe and getting rid of clothes that I don't have a hope in fitting back into within this lifetime and those clothes that even if they fit, don't fit my style any more. Stuck em all into the washing machine and have cleaned them ready to take to the Salvos or Red Cross.

Jan 1, 2008 is almost over and I have been sitting eating oven baked rolls filled with the left over ham, cream cheese and asparagus and supping on the left over bubbly. I heard a few heavy drops of rain a few mins ago on the tin patio roof and got all excited for a sec but I guess the clouds have deemed my suburb unworthy for tonight.

There was a rather large party that got out of control in my neighbouring suburb so that is probably where the sirens were headed. Still had a big fire in the southern suburbs but that's to be expected when there are arsonists on the prowl.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...

No clue on the food for the day... let you know when I get it figured out. But the weather is chilly, extreme clear/sunny, and should warm up a bit as the day wears on.

Am going to visit my son and his bride later. They suggested a German restaurant. As I eat little German food, I have no idea what I'll order.

Tonight it is supposed to freeze for the third time this year, not exactly a hardship, but I dragged freeze-sensitive potted plants inside and have covered others. Several plants in my garden will not survive a frost.

DH is really getting into cooking, since I'm recovering from surgery Tonight we're having chicken Parmesan with salad and spaghetti, with chocolate pudding for dessert, topped with a mixture of whipped cream and mascarpone cheese.

We had a very nice day today - sunny and mild, temps in the '50s. Happy New Year, everyone

I made tourtiere and beets and a tossed mixed green salad. Pretty good, if I do say so myself.

yesterday afternoon was pretty comfortable in the city, in the low 40's.

my family came in to meet me at work (and get me out early ), so we went over to f.a.o. shwartz, then to rock center to see the tree, then down to chinatown/little italy for shopping and dinner.

dinner was at vincent's. everything was excellent, except the meatballs. mine are better.
we had calamari marinara over linguini, grilled swordfish in herb butter with a side of liguini and hot sauce, and meatballs and spaghetti.

The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things
