New Years Lunch

We had our traditional New Years lunch today. Black eyed peas, collards, cornbread, sweet potatoes, and sweet tea. The combination of black eyed peas and greens bring you financial good fortune the coming year. There are those from outside the south who laugh and scoff at such a tradition, but we "ain't takin' no chances." So we loaded up today. I expect we'll need a Brink's truck by the end of the year to manage all the money we'll get.
The weatherman must be smokin' crack again because it was much colder here than was predicted. The deck, still wet from all the rain, was like an ice skating rink this morning. We had birds gathering at our windows at daybreak looking is as if to say "hey guys, when will our food be ready." I put on my shoes and filled up all the feeders. I also scattered several scoops of sunflower seeds which brings out the cardinals and the blue jays. We also filled our thistle feeder in anticipation of the impending arrival of the finches. It is my intention to get some photos when they come a-knockin'.
It's back to work full time tomorrow so I plan to enjoy my last holiday night off.
