I don't remember January being this dreary in several years. Not much sun shine here in the South at all. It's hard to believe the month is almost over. I've had a birthday & anniversary this month, started a new work schedule (working Friday, Saturday & Sundays only)and the big task of pruning the pecan trees has started. My husband had the bright idea of getting 1000 pounds of pecans cracked to put in the freezer. (Guess who gets the wonderful task of picking them all out......YEAH ME!!!!!!!) Danny's parents have helped with some already but I absolutely HATE DOING IT! I don't like sitting in the same place forever to hull out a bunch of nuts! I have things to do for crying out loud!!!!

Anyway...that's the major happenings here in South Georgia. Hope all is well with all of you!

My African Violet is the only colorful thing here on the hill!

2008......can you believe it is here already! We let the SAND MAN ring in the New Year for us last night (We slept through it!). We picked up the Little Package yesterday so we get to spend the New Year with her. Danny's parents invited us for lunch today. Southern Folks know what the menu will be......Black Eye Peas & Mustard Greens!! It is a Southern tradition that is suppose to bring you luck & money! I don't believe in luck but I do believe in BLESSINGS! GOD has been so good to me all my life! I don't need luck!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

I really believe HE loves me & means well in my life despite the bad times I go through sometimes. It is the same for you too. So I'm going to eat peas & greens today & enjoy my family with the confidence in HIS PLANS for me in 2008!

What about yall? Happy New Year everyone!!
