*Monkey socks. Sock monkey socks. Who knew they'd be so hard to find in women's sizes? No, I'm not making sock monkeys; I just want to wear them on my cold feet. Dad will be so proud of me. I even shopped at the farm store while I was looking for them. Had to purchase hunting boot socks instead. I'm pretty sure they were cheaper! Still, who wouldn't want monkey socks?
*Speaking of Dad, he gave me an old family treasure this year.
*I am in the process of hunting a really good black eyed peas recipe. K sent me her Black Eyed Peas Soup recipe. Bet you can guess what we are having for New Year's Day. (Good luck for 2013)
*Baxter and I have resumed our evening walks. (Ever since I sprained my ankle at Thanksgiving, I have been taking it pretty easy.) And it has been COLD! I look a bit like a snowman when we head out.
*Easy Street has the only street/hill in town that still has snow/ice on it from the snow before Christmas. The city didn't scrape it, and the trees shade it from the sun. I have to walk in the ditch on crunchy snow to avoid the ice on the street/drive. And of course, Baxter pulls as hard as he can, trying to get me slip sliding with him. Naughty dog. He's pretty glad to be out and about again.
*My piano is in desperate need of tuning, especially if the Lady Bug is going to keep playing it so much!
*Newest love: hot chocolate with pink peppermint mini marshmallows. Very festive and quite yummy!
*The end of the year usually finds me re-reading the year's worth of blogging. I guess I'm looking at where I've been, before thinking about where we're heading. There's a good chance that tomorrow you'll get 2012 in review.
*A little Auld Lang Syne for your last days of 2012.
This may be my favorite version. So beautiful! (Who am I kidding? I love them all!)
