I hope that 2011 will be just the best (not that 2010 didn't treat me well, I just fell out with it a bit at the end).
My SIL is American (from South Carolina) and so today she is cooking 'hoppin' Johns and collar'd greens'. Eating it on new years day is supposed to bring you luck for the whole year. I did ask what this meal consists of and apparently it is black eyed peas and rice (the part that bring you luck) and the collard greens bring in money.
We are too late to do this this year but she is sending me the recipe for next year as I think that's a really fun tradition :)
I actually went to bed at 10.30 last night! (half an hour longer than I thought haha). Maybe next year I will make it to 12, who knows what this year will bring.
I dont usually do new years resolutions, and I dont really have one now..maybe to be more productive? Tom says Rockie and Maddie have to have one. Rockie's is to lose weight..I know! He is a very big cat though, he eats his dinner, then Maddie's dinner and then sleeps..all day! So there maybe is something in trying to get him to a be a bit more active/eat less.
Maddie's resolution is to stop shedding hair on all my clothes..right Maddie?
I also thought I might partake in the 365 project that I saw on the dainty squid's blog. I will try my best to take a picture everyday, I think its such a fun idea! Here is my first for 01.01.11
