Happy New Year!
We had my niece and her daughter here for celebrating new years and her birthday on 1/1. I made meatballs and pasta, with Texas toast. We cracked a bottle of champagne and one of sparkling grape juice. As we watched the ball drop, yelling the countdown, we toasted the new year. Then I ran to open the front doors, littlest ran to open the back doors, and we tossed out 2020! Some neighbors a street over were setting off some very beautiful fireworks high in the sky. We started hooting woo hoo, they were beautiful. It seemed like we needed it. Then we put candles on a nice carrot cake, sang happy birthday (48) for my niece. Cake, presents and it was 1:30 AM as they left.
Last year they were with us at our FL house, and today we would have been at the beach. But this year we made the best of it. Today was just us, broiled filet mignon for dinner and just loved it. We haven't been eating a lot of red meat.
So to add to my first day of 2021, partner stepped into pantry and announced his sock was all wet. Say what?? Our washer is in there and I thought - don't even tell me it's leaking, if I have to call a plumber again I'm going to lose my mind. So I started pulling everything off the floor - too many bottles of rum, laundry detergent, bleach, 2 giant Windex refill bottles, plastic storage containers, bags of vacuum bags, a juicer, a little steamer - yes, more crap than what should be there. I cleaned out the whole area, which in truth, needed it. It's an area easily overlooked (by me anyway). It turned out a gallon jug of distilled water was the culprit. Transferred the water into a recently cleaned out gallon of milk and life was good. There must be a word for forced cleaning when a gremlin or a fairy causes a mess you can't ignore. Food for thought.
Jhl so glad you weren't more seriously injured in your fall. May your bruising heal quickly and swelling go down too.
Sandy - glad your son & future DIL made it home safe. And that you're ok.
Our next grandson was due 12/26, no baby yet. I said in think he knows what a shix show 2020 was and doesn't want his birthday associated with it. They see the Dr today/Saturday for an update.
Covid vaccine, I'm totally unsure when I'll qualify. I'm not over 65 so maybe after group 1c? If BC and being on an AI for another 2+ years qualifies for any earlier shots I'll take it - granted I do not want to line jump. Partner of 25 years, he will be 65 on 3/1 so he may get something in March, may not. All a crap shoot.
Our hospital distributing the vaccine is looking for volunteers to help give injections. I thought I'd volunteer, I had given shots to my diabetic father, I'd have no problems giving an injection. But they are looking for all types of medical workers: EMT, 1st year nursing students, even dentists. I could help otherwise in the setting but at this juncture I'm still a remote school helper for my nieces daughter thru 1/29. I'll give them a call Monday to see what's expected.
I've rambled on forever. I hope everyone had a nice first day in the new year. It's snowing here now, 32 out, supposed to get windy tomorrow afternoon. Have a great Saturday!
