Here it is New Years Eve Day

I have a rough draft of my Resolutions, will be pondering that as well as finishing the second Super Huge Christmas Door Decoration and listening and or watching 6 Football Games.

^^^

YUP College Bowls are still going on. Today they begin at 12:30 PM ET
Bell Helicopter Armed Forces
California vs Air Force 12:30 pm

^^^^^^^^^^^^

Roady's Humanitarian
Georgia Tech vs. Fresno State 2 pm
^^^ Brut SunSouth
Florida vs. Oregon 2 pm
^^^^^^^^ Gaylord Hotels Music City
Kentucky vs. Florida State 4pm
^^^^^^^^^^^^ Insight
Indiana vs. Oklahoma State 5:50 pm
^^ Chick-fil-AClemson vs. Auburn 7:30 pm
^^^^^^^^^^
There will be lots of flipping the channels for sure. There will also be doing outside chores as again the weather is conducive and STUFF needs done. But then that is on going as always.
Wood to split, twigs and limbs that have fallen to be picked up AGAIN. Come spring there will be more as usual. The traditional burning of old tree limbs that are not good for the fireplace needs attention, because tomorrow the burn begins.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Reasoning here is Regulation for outside burning exists.

^^

^^ As for eating I am prepared with several snack foods, cheese, crackers, fruit etc. Tonight the dinner will be what I call the Weekly Review. As when I taught, the students had to do this so it has always seemed apropos to clear the fridge before beginning new foods.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Interesting Note: Apros was an ancient city in Thrace, now in modern Turkey. Its exact location is not known, but it was near Rodosto (modern Tekirda─č, Turkey), west of Istanbul.
Back to what exactly we shall do to celebrate tonight. Many years ago BC [before children] we did indeed go out to parties. When the kids were small we would occasionally have people over or go out. Then we decided we would stay home and just simply enjoy each other company. AND Try to Stay awake. HAHA!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ There is something to be said to look lovingly into your mate’s eyes, and even smooch a bit J hugs are always good too. As for the Bubbly, HA, one needs to be awake for that now.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

A bottle of Prosecco! This light sparkler, from the northern Italian region on Veneto, is made for summer. It's light, refreshing, and carries slight hints of melons, pears, and almonds. Prosecco is made from a grape of the same name and is excellent paired with calamari, a green salad, or a plate of pasta. Traditionally, Prosecco is an off-dry (that is, slightly sweet) wine, but today, many Proseccos are dry and crisp. Look for "brut" on the wine label for a dry Prosecco. This wine is most famous for its starring role in the Bellini, a cocktail made from fresh white peach juice and Prosecco, created at Harry's Bar in Venice.

Hope you all had a Great News Year Eve. Our bottle of Prosecco is still intact. We did not make it until midnight…this year!
Willard that sunset was from late December last year. I always thought it was stunning.

Abraham, what a lovely compliment, which I accept gracefully. Wishes to you and Patty for a wonderful year to come!

Julie and IMAC always a delight to have you here on my spot and always a joy to visit All of your Blogs.

I have sometimes thought of putting links to your all blogs on mine, then I try, then I get frustrated, then I let it go for awhile…then I figure one day I just might decided to do it.
