New year and memories…

As I sit here drinking my coffee, I look outside my cousin’s windowand see these mountians where I spent my childhood. I remember and smile. Tonight is my mother’s family Christmas party, which will have more attendents than originally planned, due to Grandma’s funeral yesterday (which was just as it should have been, a celebration of her life).  My parents, brother, andsister in law now get to party with us, or in reality eat, drink, and laugh a lot.

My cousin, Prudence (it is a family name and would be mine had she not been born 10 years before me), is hosting this annual event, and as she also had it last year she keptposession of the family albums. Of which I put together a few years back, and I have resolved to take back up as a project this year. Here area few jems from the first familybparties, back in early 1980s.




I have been pondering new year resolutions, andwell herebis what I have comeup with…

  1. Try and expand my wheat free cooking menu
  2. Spend at least 3 days doing pilates, in addition to my gym workout
  3. Admit defeat in my quest to be a size well a size I won’t be, and just invest in stock and product of Spanx!
