My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

New Year Traditions

002 Blog Prompt: What traditions do you follow for the new year? Do you eat special things or do special activities?

Every new year we eat collard greens and black eyed peas. This year I decided to cook them from scratch instead of buying the cans. I was really surprised how good they turned out and they are much better than the canned ones so I will probably do this again.

I try to clean the house as much as possible so we start the New Year with a clean house.

On New Year’s Day, my husband goes outside and walks back in. I was always told that the first one to enter the house should be a man for good luck.

We do not argue or say anything bad to each other. We hope to begin the year as we plan on spending the rest of the year.

That's some lovely ideas for starting the new year. I guess we all try our best on the first day of the year.

I have always heard that the first thing you do on the new year is the what you will be doing all year long. I try to make sure it does not include laundry, dishes or cleaning, LOL. Love black-eyed peas and we have done that too in the past.
