It's only a little after 11 a.m. here in western Kentucky. It's a beautiful, clear day. The sun is brightly shining and there's not a cloud in the brilliant blue sky. Just a wisp of a breeze now and then. The temp, even though it's sunny, is only about 40F. Supposed to be clear and cold tonight. Temp is predicted to to drop to about 20F tonight.
Buck and I will welcome 2008 alone, but we'll do it as we always do...with fondue made from his Swiss grandfather's recipe, homemade baguette cut into cubes and a nice big bottle of bubbly.
The "noise" we'll probably hear are the bulldozers tearing down what is left of our courthouse after last Wednesday's early morning fire. The courthouse is not many yards from our house and Buck drove down to see what was happening this morning. He said there were all sorts of lights set up and generators so the workmen could work through the night. There's been a constant "crashing and banging" since the fire.
Tomorrow will be a lazy day and we'll finish with ribeye steaks with gorgonzola/mushroom/onion cream sauce, twice baked potatoes and a nice bottle of wine.
Wednesday, we'll have to get back to "the real world."
"Happy New Year, everyone!!!
