Sitting Here – 2016

I’m sitting here alone for the first time this year 🙂 All one day of it. I’ve scratched off a few of the chores on my list and now I’m watching Star Wars. (I finally treated myself to new dvds of the original three movies.)

We ushered in the new year quietly like we always do. No party animals in our house – Jaia and I were the last two standing Thursday evening, Rowan and my husband having gone to bed hours earlier –


Jaia is searching for the source of all the fireworks at 12:00 on the dot.

Friday, the 1st, was a lazy day and also my husband’s birthday. For his day I cooked breakfast ( a meal I absolutely hate cooking), we went for a wonderful walk and then dinner.

He wasn’t sure what he wanted for dinner and said maybe a roast  or something so I went to our fabulous meat market where I discovered OX TAIL! A meal he loves! So dinner was wine braised oxtail and hot wings 🙂

I used this recipe for the oxtail –

I haven’t been a resolution setter in the past, but for 2016 I think I’m creating a few. Back to meditating, continuing to eat healthy (cutting out all that bread has been wonderful for me!) and getting my hubbie on board this time around. Continuing to grow this blog, support my girls and maybe, maybe a job for me?

Growth for me in 2016 also means nurturing old friendships and unfortunately letting some go that are not nurturing ME – and yes indeed, creating new ones.

I hope everyone started off their new year happy, healthy and dry!

Bright Blessings !
