No year end wrap up, no most viewed post, not even a word for 2014! No resolutions, other than to take each day as it comes, less planning equals less tension, less stress!
I have meant to do a post, but as I have mentioned, blogging without photos is like rambling......I guess I need the reinforcement of pictures to prove I did something. Crazy but it is true.
I survived Christmas barely, came home sick as a dog from breathing in two days' worth of second hand smoke. Rude, inconsiderate in-laws of my friend hosting the two days. I am very allergic to tobacco smoke. Still have a terrible cough.
Winter is not playing nice at all, we are dug out of about 8 inches maybe more with drifting here, and the frigid temps are keeping me a prisoner even longer than I would like. I hope to get out by Monday!
A sweet blogging friend sent me a delicious jar of Christmas jam along with a microwave bag for potatoes. I can't wait to try it with sweet potatoes. It was such a nice surprise. I will keep it anonymous.
I also won a beautiful 2014 Susan Branch calendar from a giveaway hosted by Nellie at the blog Berries and More. Wish I could provide a link, but cut and paste only pops up when I don't need it, like when I am on Facebook!
I got to bake about five kinds of cookies, and just today tossed out the leftovers. They held up pretty good but were definitely past their prime. Tins are cleaned and ready to be put away until next year.
I also baked an eggnog pound cake which I found on Pinterest. I liked it, and made four mini ones rather than one large one. My friends seemed to enjoy it.
My toes are feeling so much better. I really need to get to the podiatrist but between being sick and then the snow and frigid temps, well, it is really a drag! Can't wait for spring to arrive.
Hope this finds all of you well, warm, cozy, and enjoying your Christmas presents. I still have two to give out! Aye yay yay, but then again, I have two more to look forward to!
Thanks again to Linda Primmer (Life & Linda) for the new blog header! I will keep this for a while, love it.
Happy, healthy 2014!
