...and a very FOGGY Happy New Year to You!

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey

Happy New Year! We are off to a very soggy, foggy start to our new year. Here is the scene in our back yard as I write this entry at 12:36 p.m. Is it day? or night?  It rained overnight, nearly one inch. The yard, not frozen, has turned into a muddy mire from the dogs. Lovely. But, we are cozy and happy in our house. We just finished lunch of champagne [to toast the New Year as we went to bed before it arrived last night] and salad with poached pears and gorgonzola cheese. We just watched some of the Rose Parade. It’s pretty, but really what is the point of wasting all those gorgeous flowers? What happens to all the floats tomorrow? Truly a waste in my eyes.

Rick is out in the kitchen starting a new batch of cheese. Soon I will return to my Zelda game on our new Nintendo Wii. I need a few hours of fantasy!

A more thoughtful, deep post regarding the New Year to follow tomorrow. Until then, enjoy your first day of the year!


Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved back to my 'home' state and I am living in NoCo (Northern Colorado).This blog will be about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
