New Year's Eve

We're not partying, just getting ready for the party tomorrow. We have always had a New Year's Day open house serving blackeyed peas and cabbage for good luck and prosperity in the new year. We also have all kinds of other stuff. I am about to go grocery shopping, have to muster the troops to get the patio cleaned off, party lights put up, other chores. The troops did a good job of sweeping and washing down the carport yesterday. Now they just have to put the bins back in place, put up some lights around the door.

We have to stay home on New Year's Eve since we got Tippy. He's VERY sensitive to thunder and fireworks. Fireworks are illegal in the city but that doesn't stop people from setting them off. Even indoors, he has trouble finding a safe enough spot to lie down and chew on his rawhide. So we stay home and start cooking for the New Year's Day party.

I'm currently having my coffee and forming my plan for the day. We'll see how well the troops perform. Some of them are still asleep.
