1st January

It has been a lazy, foggy, wet New Year’s Day. I started a batch of Camembert cheese, but we’ve done nothing else I had hoped we’d do—like taking down decorations. We finally built a fire mid-afternoon, although it is really not necessary. It adds to the ambiance, but we don’t need the heat! I smoked up the house pretty good, but Lynne (fire woman) rescued us and we now have a cozy fire. It has been a day of video-gaming with each of us making some progress in our games.

We watched a little of the Rose Parade, but it has become so commercialized and self-serving that we stopped. We got tired of hearing about upcoming episodes of Desperate Housewives and Greys Anatomy.

This morning I started a leg of lamb marinating in rosemary, basil, garlic, oil and salt and pepper. I’ll roast it in a couple of hours and Lynne will make some mashed butternut squash as a side. We’ll serve it with a nice red wine from the cellar.

I also made a new batch of Camembert cheese. I hope this one comes out better than the previous one. It is an easy cheese to make, so did not take much time or care.

Ken, Loretta and Kenny came by. They were bear hunting, but the rains have probably driven the bears out of the drainage system under the street, so they had no luck. Instead, we shared a glass of wine and some good conversation with them.

I stuffed some baby food down Bart’s throat, so he has had some nourishment for the day, but not enough to sustain him.
