I got the closets cleaned out and the Christmas crap put away. Everything I had on my tree PLUS the nativity fit in the Whirly Pop Popcorn Maker box.
Then Mr. Moon and Hank and I drove down to the coast and had a bowl of gumbo on the St. Mark's River. It was beautiful. We watched the pelican and other-birds show.

I tell you what- it was a fine way to spend an hour on New Year's Eve day, even if the sky was cloudy.

We came home and I picked arugula and Liz stopped by and we had a porch martini and showed each other pictures of our grandkids. Now I'm going to boil some spaghetti and serve up the sauce that's been cooking all day long and make a salad with that arugula and an avocado. 

I couldn't have planned a better day if I'd tried.

Happy New Year, y'all. I'm grateful for you. Let's keep on with it. 

Yours so very truly...Ms. Moon


  1. I love that Hank is there with you. I get the sense he makes everyone happy. Hope he's all better.

  2. Happy New Year :) We will keep on x

  3. Grateful for you too. Spent my first day of the year here (Australia) sweating, swimming, putting away the decorations, trying to traffic control the hungry tall boys standing in front of the open fridge slicing slabs of meat off the Christmas ham. Ate Chinese cabbage with mint, lime juice and brown sugar dressing.Happy new year Ms Moon.

  4. Happy 2013 to you and yours. Sounds like a fine way to spend the eve of the new year.

  5. Sounds glorious. I am falling in love with your life of arugula and porch martinis.

    A very happy 2013 to you.

  6. Happy New year to you and I hope it's a great one for you and your family.

  7. I'd love to live somewhere where you could pick arugula and eat it fresh year round! All I can pick right now is snowballs. And they're not very tasty.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
