A Relatively Uncomplicated New Year's Day

After Divine Service today, Cindi, David, Meaghan and I sat down to a hurried breakfast (David was off to work at 11) of bacon, eggs, and almond toast.  In the p.m., Cindi and I prepared dinner - Dave, Jo, and Sandi joined us for some afternoon cards and then supper.  We had a big salad with home-made caesar dressing, baked fish (with lemon, mushrooms, shallots, onion, garlic, wine and butter) and some oven baked sweet taters.  Dessert was left overs from the party last evening.  A couple games of Liverpool.  The winner is irrelevant as I'm sure you all agree.  After Dave, Jo, and Sandi left, we had a quiet evening readying things for the morrow.  We plan on taking down tree (yes, sacrilege, I know - but it's rather tired), packing away Christmas ornaments here at the house, and returning to simple and normal.

How badly did they beat you? :-)

I had to hurriedly take down our tree last night because some praying mantis cocoons hatched. The little babies pretty much died right away because there was nothing for them to eat. But my wife and I are not fond of bugs in the house. The kids were quite bothered that the tree was gone. There's going to be Christmas again.

Fr. Gregory, let's just say it wasn't pretty.

Jeremy, that happened to us once too in NC. House was filled with mantises!

Now that makes the perfect blog: food for the body and food for the soul! What more could a person want? ; )
