Happy New Year 2013 :)

I made a pecan Pie, the first ever in my life... it looks delish.
 It smells SOOOOOOO yummy but we have resisted cutting it ... till tomorrow...
ummmm today later... and I am NOT beyond pecan pie for Breakfast :)
I have collard greens with pork loin in one crock pot on low...
and Pink eye peas with bacon in another
and a ham in the fridge ready to heat up in the oven in the morning... it only needs a couple hours to warm :) 

We are doing the free month of net flix, watched this goofy movie tonight... I think bradley WILL love it as he can watch his favorites... I think they have it at their house and he has his favorite shows...

I however PLAN to watch the ENTIRE umpteen years 143 episodes of BONES ... I LOVE bones... and have never seen MANY MANY so it will be fun to see all.

i have managed to sort about HALF of the photos I loaded from 2003 on.... maybe I will get more of them done today later.... we shall see. cory  stephanie and bradley are supposed to come over sometime today and eat :) I have a present for them....

on face book there has been this idea floating around it is what I would call a gratitude jar...
anyway I have a half gallon jar two note pads and pens for them...

and on the jar it says
Write good things on the paper and put them in the jar, supprise gifts, accomplished goals, beauty of nature, laugh out loud moments memories worth keeping, daily blessings... then at the end of 2013 take them all out and read them.... I think in their case and mine as well I may need to take them out at the end of each month ...

anyway I think it will help a lot ... I hope so anyway.

well I did my yearly bring in the new year with my aunt betty via phone, many years we play farkle over the phone... there is a lot of trust involved to not cheat LOL.. we both love to play enough and cant be bothered to cheat...this year we just talked and I got food going and cleaned up.

well I just wanted to pop on and wish you ladies a happy new Year and cant wait to see how things go in 2013!

Glad you're blogging again. I've looked so many times to see if you've updated and was so glad to see all the posts, pictures of your grands, and of course, the food porn. Thinking of you and good luck with the resume/job search.
Take care.

Love the idea of the gratitude jar :)

I don't know what I'd do without Netflix. There is never anything on TV sometimes.

My son loves Bones. I've never watched it. I should.

Pie looks YUM and pink eyed peas?
