It's almost 2014--so hard to believe! Hope each of you has a blessed year.
Our Christmas was blessed with family (especially those sweet grandbabies). I haven't been as much on the computer as usual, but on reviewing the porch "ramblings"
I liked seeing how you all spent Christmas and enjoyed meeting your dogs.
Mariane, there isn't much on your shopping list I'd buy--maybe the sweet potatoes and the apples and the cornmeal. I've been in the South since I was 15 (that's a really long time!), but I've never really got into the collards/black-eyed pea adventure--and I like my cornbread sweet. My sweetie will take me out for lunch. A grilled steak or chicken breast and baked potato sound good, and I still have enough sweets left after Christmas to sink a battleship.
Yesterday I spent awhile in the dentist's chair getting ready for a crown to repair the molar I broke with a bite of Christmas dinner.
We've had cold weather at night and moderately cool temperatures in the daytime. Don and Edy, I believe you're going to share your frigid temps with us Friday--but I'd just as soon you didn't.
God bless friends on the porch!
