I'll be working New Year's Eve and Day. I'll be home by 9pm on NYE. I always put out a buffet of finger foods and we'll have champagne. Then on NYD we'll have Hoppin' John. It's a Southern dish that you eat for good luck in the new year. It's kind of like red beans and rice, only here in SC we use black eyed peas. You're also supposed to eat collard greens for money. It's really bad for a Southern girl to admit to this, but I can't stand collards, so I guess I'll be poor all year again. No new surprises there!

Oh, something that I kind of want to "brag" about. There is a retail shop here associated here with two animal rescue organizations and we stopped in there yesterday, just to see what was new. I got a 41 piece set of Pfaltzgraff dinnerware for $40. It's a set for four, with dinner plates, salad plates, dessert plates, cups, saucers, etc. I also got a cover butter dish, gravy boat, creamer, sugar bowl, etc. And I got a cookie jar for an extra $3. It's in the tea rose pattern:

I love going to retail shops! You never know what you're going to find. And in this case I also got to help homeless animals.
