Odds and ends ...



Greetings, friends! I hope everyone had a great New Year's Day. We ate dinner with relatives at their house and had a delicious homemade family dinner which consisted of all of the traditional Pennsylvania Dutch foods to be eaten every New Year's Day. We had pork and sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, apple sauce, and buns. It is believed that pork and sauerkraut brings good luck and good fortune in the months ahead. Part superstition and part tradition, our family has always eaten pork and sauerkraut on New Year's Day.


And, we all ate a sprig (leaf) of spinach for an additional dose of good luck ...
My MIL's dog Tulip enjoyed lounging underneath the Christmas tree while we ate dinner ...


And for dessert, we all had a slice of ice cream cake from Carvel ...

Happy New Year wishes!


Happy New Year's Eve, my friends! We are not doing much tonight, just going to spend New Year's Eve at my MIL's house. I will be able to get the chance to wear my holiday garb - my cat sweater that lights up on the front of it and my elf sweater poncho I bought just a month ago ...

What do you think of Santa's little elf helper? ...

The past couple of days  I have been working upstairs in the attic cleaning up. I am only about halfway finished ...
I bought some large plastic storage bins in which to place my clothing in ...
And I also organized my glass and satin balls into special storage boxes ...

With my $10.00 rewards coupon from Boscov's, I bought a twin-sized comforter set for the spare bedroom downstairs. I am planning on straightening up that room as well and also using it for an office space ...
 Here is wishing everyone a very Happy New Year to come!!

A Family Day, Christmas Day



Happy Wednesday, my friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends. We woke up early, my mom and I (and the critters - both dog and cats) exchanged gifts at my house before leaving for my MIL's house to meet the rest of the family for dinner. Here are a few pics from yesterday ...

 And, a very special hug to my sister Aurora Skye and her hubby that they both had a lovely Christmas day! I just had to share one of my fav pics of her taken on my wedding day. I call it "the Princess Diana" pic ...  Love you sis!! 💖

Have a great day all!!
