New Years day was spent quietly ensconced in our small temporary abode, reading and knitting.
A little time was spent in my tiny, oven-less, two burner kitchen preparing a News Year's Dinner with a nod to Southern tradition:
Local Tennessee sausages with black eyed peas, and collard greens sauteed with garlic, ginger and tomato. Not beautiful perhaps, but warm and comforting food nonetheless.
A new USB cable arrived for my camera so I attempted a WIW photo (what I wore) on New Years Eve. The camera works slightly better than my cell phone in this tiny space, but is not ideal. We spent a casual New Year's Eve with family and I wore this outfit during the day as well when I was out ordering a few pieces of furniture we had scouted out during the previous weeks. Quite frankly I was quite happy to end the year without resorting to bulky coats and winter boots.
On New Year's morning there was more banging and yelling than usual from our neighbors and much revving of engines in the parking lot. None of us have grown accustomed to having the great world in such close proximity. Moisés returned to a favorite hiding spot. I seriously wished I could join him.
I'm off to see what everyone is up to on this Visible Monday. Have a great week!
