Welcome to 2015
Yes, that is a big French truck filled with freshly baked baguette.
Too bad it isn't parked in the driveway. Along with butter and a jar of apricot preserves. Or cheese and some delightfully dry baked ham.
Which reminds me of my plan to order a maple baked ham from the place I ordered it from years and years ago. That was a really good ham. Very expensive but we ate every crumb of it.
I don't make New Year resolutions. But I was trying to go on the daily walk with Riley and G each morning. Until this morning when I decided to take a hot shower instead. It was the right choice.
I also washed four sweaters in the machine rather than by hand. Delicate and all. But one never knows if that will make mittens out of them. I don't know if those are resolutions but those are decisions I made today--good or bad. We'll see.
Yesterday I watched the Tudors on BBCAmerica. I gave up around Catherine Parr. Everyone else got their heads chopped off. What I think I liked best was the commercials for Orphan Black. G and I are trying to limit ourselves to three episodes a day. But we are almost done with them, sadly. What a fascinating series. Helena is my favorite clone.
I still have my Christmas tree up. I wait the full 12 days of Christmas and take it down on January 6th. All the felt Santas have belts. All done. I made 8 but gave one away to my son. I still haven't made the Christmas Eve Pierogi but I plan to do that in the next 7 days (or so) because I like them and I think I will make some really vinegary roasted pork to go along with them.
I am enjoying my fifth day of unemployment. Waking up early, still, but that's okay. I get to read the newspaper and eat my bran flakes without watching the clock.
Now, I am making a salad to go with the pizza G has gone to get. Romaine, carrot, feta and Ranch dressing. No olives because I don't have any, no olive oil dressing because I like Ranch better with feta. My impression of Greek Salad. Because it's "all about me" and that makes me laugh. Happy New Year.
