Lately and Finished The Blanket

Ok, Where did this month go? I surely hope the New year has been good to you so far!  I have been quite productive, ( Dr. appt.’s and such for procrastinating so long 🙂  We celebrated my Love’s Birthday and Retirement!   We also purchased a Bedroom set for our guest room.  Besides all of the above, I finally finished the Octavia baby blanket.  I was thinking you could choose yarn, color of your choice and weave it through the border. This would also be nice to make a lovey, ( a stuffed animal to attach to it).  It would also be nice to donate to anywhere! Without further a do!

Have a Wonderful Day!

New Year’s Eve and New Year Day Food…

Happy New Year!  I actually downloaded the pics of the Tradition of New Year’s Eve Food and New Year’s Day too. I mentioned yesterday the Yugoslavian dish, Zeila.  It is like a stew 🙂 Garlic bread goes very well with it too!  Then today, my southern tradition is black eyed peas with collard greens!   Since it is late in the evening I will make this short! Without further a do….

This is the Zeila. (always enough to send some home with family)

Chime In…

Happy New Year’s Eve! I wish you all a Wonderful New Year 🙂  Today, another Family gathering of  good times and food! It is a tradition on My Love’s ( husband) side of the family to have Zeila. It is a Yugoslavian dish his Father taught me how to cook.  Now, my Love enjoys several times a year 🙂  I will get a pic of it in a little while. It is slowly simmering.

Oh, back to my title, Chime In… I thought I would share some new wind chime I received as gifts 🙂

Hibiscus Bloom

Finding it hard to believe this beautifu hibiscus bloomed on December 27th.  Florida sunshine is still warm.  A cold front moves in tonight maybe low 50’s or high 40’s.  It shall last a couple days :).  I am sure January, February and March will be quite chilly!   I hope this little message finds you all well as we all await the new approaching New Year!

My Thoughts This Morning

This morning, while I was biking ( my morning routine) I was thinking of you all. Community that shares, Creates and Makers of all things! Photographs, the written word, and recipes. I am sure the list goes on, but I am mentioning a few 🙂  We all put ourselves out there, so to speak.  We are accepted in a loving acceptance.  We  Encourage one another, become friends from all areas of the world.  I thought I would express my gratitude for this experience!  We learn from one another in many ways!  Thank you all, especially with Christmas time approaching quickly!  You all are Blessings…. xxx

Have a Wonderful Day!
