I’ve often heard that whatever you do on New Years Day you will be doing for the rest of the year. If that’s the case I’m going to be worthless! Except for the fact that I did cook – and cooking is not what I want to be doing all year.
Of course we had the traditional New Years meal – black-eyed peas, cabbage, and cornbread. H didn’t have nice things to say about my corn bread because I didn’t add sugar to it. If I wanted cake, I would have made cake. One time a year I want some old fashion cornbread and today was the day. Sorry.
I interrogated my children this morning about whether or not they were having a traditional New Years meal. I was betting on the fact that they all were except for Andrew. I sent him this info about black eyed peas and cabbage for New Years when he said he wasn’t cooking that because he didn’t have any. That’s why you should plan ahead, Andrew. After he read it he said he may go get some to cook… He did but could only find frozen ones. I told him that would work. I won’t push the cabbage.
So back to what you do on New Years Day…
Just thinking about what is on the list of what I could be doing while H goes out hunting this afternoon overwhelms me. I have no lack of projects.
- Work on that impossible wedding gown I am altering for someone. The faster I get it done, the faster I can stop worrying about it.
- Make some pillows for my Etsy shop. I have a Mardi Gras design in my head. I also should change my holiday header and profile pic too.
- Write on my WIP. I have been too lax in that project. The 3 I’ve already published are holding their own.
- Sew on those curtains I promised Jessie and on the ones I promised Andrew and Xochi.
- Play with my Cricut. I have so many project ideas I don’t know where to start!
- Finish making my low content daily planner book for H to organize his private lessons. He sometimes forgets he rescheduled someone. He will actually have to open it up and write in it for it to be worthwhile. These are the low content books I’ve already published.
What New Years traditions do you follow? Andrew’s girlfriend is from Venezuela and they eat 12 grapes at midnight. He said Xochi already ate her 12 grapes and did not eat beans even though he explained to her they were technically peas.
Where do I start? What do I do? I think I hear the sofa calling my name…
