Did everyone enjoy the holidays?
Did you party on New Year’s Eve?
Did you make New Year’s Resolutions?
This is what I did yesterday … cleaned out the kitchen cupboard … I found a little of this and a little of that … made a basic bar cookie and put it in the oven …
The hubby was cooking a ham on the barbeque and called me to the backyard and this is what we saw …
We live about 15 miles from the Rose Bowl … the B2 Bomber was killing time before the football game. This usually happens every New Year’s Day and we never get tired of seeing it!
We live in an old house, in an old neighborhood with old overhead wiring …
I had to get back in the kitchen so that I didn’t burn the new cookie creation. This is what a little of this and that looks like after its baked!
I guess it’s a winner … it got 6 thumbs up :)

I was driving down the street and hit a traffic jam …
