Lunch with Robert

Our son Robert came over for New Year’s lunch today.  We enjoyed our visit with him.  Unfortunately, our daughter in-law Kelsey had to work so we missed seeing her.  Our menu included black-eyed peas, stir fried cabbage and onions, beef roast, creamed potatoes and cornbread.   The Southern tradition is that you must eat black-eyed peas for luck and greens such as cabbage, mustard greens or turnip greens for prosperity in the new year.  Now I am not superstitious but I eat it anyway. LOL

John was on call to check on the mall today so he made three trips over there to check on it.  At least he was able to be home most of the day. Yeah!!!!  He actually got in a long nap today.

Temperatures are in the 30s tonight and will be colder tomorrow night, possibly in the 20s.  That is really cold for us.

Hope everyone had a great New Year’s Day.

Remember to laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.
