Yes, the first day of the new year is almost over & it has been a restful day. We had our traditional blackeyed peas today cooked with a ham hock so I guess we are covered going in to 2011. I know the correct southern tradition calls for hog jowls which is taken from the head of the hog but I haven't been successful in convincing Linda to try it. I was in Lowes Foods yesterday and they had smoked hog jowls poslofgitioned all over the store trying to entice their customers to carry some home.
I was visiting at Kathieys World today and she had found a wonderful prayer for the new year that I just had to share with you. Go here to see the prayer and check out her blog if you don't already follow her.
Tomorrow is Linda's birthday & we will be going to a fancy restaurant in Roanoke Rapids for lunch to celebrate. I think it's the first time we've gone to eat at any restaurant that requires a reservation. Time will tell how good it really is.
It got up to 60 degrees here today so a lot of snow melted but there is still plenty especially in shady areas. At least Rocky got to have some outside time today which I am so glad of since he spends so much time inside the house.
Hope everyone had a great 1st day of the year. I am looking forward to having a whole year to blog and to get to know all of you better.
