I was planning on writing some sort of end of the year blog post. But I was too busy having fun.
Then I was planning on writing a 'beginning of the year' blog...and then I found myself caught up in fun again.
So this is my small 'Happy New Year even though I'm late and it's already January 2' blog post.
Chuckles and I spent New Year's Eve at home. He actually made it to midnight this year, which is a rare event. Ordered pizza and played cribbage and Scrabble all night. We're TOTAL hooligans.
New Year's Day was actually pretty nice, after all the ugly cold we've been having. I wish the sun had been out a little more, but beggars can't be choosers.
We decided to go out to the park and have a picnic.
See IG? I probably do eat pig uteri on a regular basis, I just don't realize it because it's all ground up into a delicious chili dog.
Even my stepdaughter ate 2 of them. And she's super picky about what she eats.
We played frisbee (ok, Chuck and Desiree played and I drank wine and defended my face against errant frisbee throws) and kicked around the soccer ball.
Then on the way home, we decided to pick up some firewood and have a fire in the backyard. Desiree wanted to roast marshmallows. I just like setting stuff on fire.
We sat there for a few hours, with some blues music cranked out into the backyard, sipping on Molson Canadians (Chuck said he was trying to make me feel like I was at home).
(Forget being younger than my dad, the Canadian flag is younger than my husband! O_O)
Happy New Year, everyone!
