It's a New Year!

Last night we had a good time just sitting around the fire pit.  It's very relaxing. We had some friends over and did hot dogs and smore's. 

This morning Jon and I got up and went for a 5 mile hike in the woods.  It was absolutely perfect, cool, misty rain.... 

We like to go back in far enough that you can't hear anything but nature.  This morning we heard some animals in the distance but we stopped at a trail turn.  We heard a lot of rustling in the palmetto underbrush.  I knew the sound and I was right....a bunch of little wild pigs!  I got a video of the last one as he ran out but couldn't post it on here for some reason if you want to see it go to Facebook to
My Real Life By Yvonne and watch it!  While you are there LIKE my page and you'll see occasional videos that don't make it on the blog.

Once I got home it was time to cook the traditional southern New Year's Day dinner

On the left is cornbread=gold
middle is collard greens =Green bills
right is black eyed peas = coins!

LOL now we will be rich in 2018!

So all of Florida is hoping for a little snow this week.  It's been a long time since we had any real amount of snow that was 1977 I think!   Today is a gloomy rainy day but I love days like today.  I love rainy weather.  Tonight I'm sharing at the local Lion's Club and am looking forward to meeting some new people.  

Have a great day and stay warm and safe!
