Funny here in animal house. The Lab is sleeping and wagging her tail vigorously against the floor, thump, thump, thump. The Cat is running from the bedroom, under the dining room table and into the kitchen. Then back again and back again. Very loud for such a small cat, pound, pound, pound. We, however, are both minding our own business, GG reading a book and me reading and blogging. Guess tonight is New Year's Eve in the animal kingdom.
We've planned a quiet night at home this year. Tomorrow night we'll cook Marie's Swedish meatballs and serve them with a pile of GG's sinful mashed potatoes. I don't watch her make them but I can taste the copious amounts of butter and cream. What you don't see doesn't count, right?
A friend or two, maybe four, will come by to eat and attempt to and steal GG's Scrabble crown away from her. I assure you I will be playing for blood and the crown.
And then, oh happy day, I hear it will be in the high 50's maybe low 60's and sunny on the 1st. This means we can get outside and do some yard work.
Happy New Year to all of you. Here's hoping in 2011 we all get a chance to get a little closer to living the life we want. Wishing you all serenity, courage and wisdom. And a delicious meal.
