'Auld Lang Syne' is Scots-Gaelic for 'Let's Party and Kiss Strangers'

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!

Hi Kyna,

Happy New Year... You and Chuck really are Hooligans, I cannot believe you were doing something as dangerous as playing Scrabble.

I would imagine Desiree doesn't realise she's eating pig's Uteri... Omg, I'm going to be sick, but saying that I just had toad in the hole for dinner (that's sausages in yorkshire pudding in case you've never heard of it) so I too have probably just eaten some. Urgh.

Well, it was tasty when it was going down!

Hey EX-Canuck girl & Chuckles
Happy New Year and I am totally jealous about roasting marshmallows (even though I too enjoy setting things on fire .. mainly my marshmallows 'cause I love that burnt taste .. go figure I used to eat the heads off spent matches when I was a kid .. who knows why ??) any ways .. they won't let us have a little fire pit thing here because of some stupid by-law when some towny redneck probably almost set Kingston on fire sort of thing .. I so miss a roasted set on fire marshmallow .. could you possibly mail one to me next time Kyna ?? huh??
Joy wink wink

Pig Uteri; it's so 2011!

We stayed in too. Staying is the new going out, or the new black. No, wait, pig uteri is the new black.
