So here's the deal, when I started this blog over a year and a half ago, my intent was to let my family and friends know what we were up to in our travels. I wanted to show them some of the beautiful places we get to visit, some of the great food we get to eat and to keep them updated without having to write the same email over and over.
Somewhere along the way I got off track, so I am going to rein myself in and get back to my original intent. I understand how it happened,it seems every five or so years I lose a little ground with my health. I have read a lot of books about post polio syndrome, I know what to expect, I know the tools to coping with it, but it seems to throw me for a loop every time. But I have met this one, I have a plan and so far the plan seems to be working. So, I am getting myself back on track.
We had a really nice New Year's Eve, about 20 of us went to the outside patio for dinner, Everyone brought a dish to pass and your own meat to grill. We sat with four couples, two we knew and two we got to know. The food was great and so was the company. There was a dance at 8 pm but J and I were just not in the mood for it, so we came home. We watched a little TV, had our glass of champagne and went to bed at 10 pm. We have never celebrated New Year's Eve any other way. We definitely don't want to be out driving when the party is over and people who have had to much to drink are driving home.
I just can't seem to end a post with out some pictures. I haven't been out to take any really interesting ones so I will just share a few I took over the holidays.
My lovely pecan pie, I made one for Christmas and two for last night, they seem to be a hit. One thing I want to do this year is learn to make my own dough. Anyone want to offer to teach me?
It was quite a year wasn't it. It was a very sad year for many of us. But you have to take the bad with the good, right? Today it is just going to be a lazy low key day for us. Hope you are having a good one. Peace my friends.
