This morning I made the black-eyed pea dip recipe from Homesick Texan and it was good.
I know what I will not be doing today:
I will not be watching the Rose Parade. When I was a kid, we went to Pasadena a day or two after the parade to look at the floats. What I mainly remember from that event was how horrible they smelled.
And I will not be watching hour after hour of football. In the past few days I have watched hour after hour of a CSI (Las Vegas) marathon, and I am sick of TV. Sick, I tell you.
I failed so miserably in keeping the resolution I made this time last year. So, this year I have made one specific resolution: Clean up after myself in the kitchen so Richard doesn't have to do it.
And the general resolution is to deliberately look for joy in my day-to-day life and try to share it. And perhaps that will balance out the other.
