a new year

You know you have a neglected blog when you can remember neither your user name nor your password. I’m taking my cue from Mariah and taking part in Project 365. Here’s my first photo of the new year.

It’s negative 20 outside (you heard me right: -20. Fahrenheit.) but the sun is beautiful coming through the front window and shining on the oranges and amaryllis on the table. We were planning to go for a ski then have a potluck at my house but one glance at the thermometer this morning was enough to scrap the skiing idea and skip straight to the food. I have a mincemeat pie and piecrust-cinnamon-rolls baking in the oven and the house smells divine. Black-eyed peas with collard greens and leftover Christmas ham is simmering in a pot on the stove. The dog is snoozing on the couch. The husband is watching football.  Now if only all those Christmas decorations would take themselves down.
