Happy New Year!

My dear friend Fran and her husband came over last night to toast the new year with us, laden with home made sweets from Lucas' mother's kitchen, savory delicacies from their cellar, and wine! We pigged out on all of the traditional New Years eve dishes: oysters, (escargots for some), foie gras, truffled boudin blanc, and a home made buche de noel prepared by Lucas. Fran brought a bottle of traditional holiday milk punch called Punch a cream, which she made with an island recipe, and shared her new years resolutions which include but are not limited to less clutter, more work progress, less fat, more veggies, less sweets, more exercise, daily photos, etc. I decided that I'd only have one - to blog. We were hit with a number of very significant changes and it kind of knocked my planets out of alignment. Short and sweet or not, it really does make things right when I've shared my daily news, so that's my resolution.

Lucy, I find myself wishing we knew one another better so I'd be up-to-date on all the changes in your life. I'll send my wishes that they are positive.

Happy New Year Lucy! I've missed your blog posts and I was kind of tired of staring at the celery. Happy to see you back on here.
