honestly, not working and trying to avoid 'groups' makes it difficult to actually keep track! I used to know it was SUNDAY because the 'newspaper' (remember those?) was fatter, but, like so many other things, they don't deliver any more!

But hey, Happy New Year!!!!!

Some of that.
Also have some Hgn Dz Vanilla w Choc truffles and Bourbon to finish.
I will add pieces of Pepperidg Farm Pirouette chocolate fudge rolls to both.

For NYD I'll have HGNDZ Choc choc chip ice cream with same pirouetts, plus slivered almonds.

Mealwise will order a small white pizza with silvered onions from a nice independent Pizza store across the street.

For midnight snack I suddenly thought of Deviled Ham on Ritz crackers. We had that as part of NY Eve snacks as a kid.

Maybe on Sunday I'll finally cook dryish scrambled eggs!
I need to get salt, and pepper. Garlic powder. Maybe cheddar cheese. We'll see. 👍🙂

Oh, I am a NYC'r. Of course, I'll watch the ball drop. 👍😁

HAPPY NEW YEAR Everyone! 🎉🎉🎉

Our Renaissance Weekend was canceled as we were leaving for the airport in Düsseldorf on Sunday. We said what the hell, we will go anyway, and have a relaxing week in Charleston, South Carolina. As it turned out, we weren't alone. People came from North Carolina, but also as far away as San Francisco.

So, we organized a big dinner, and some champagne (I don't drink alcohol, but I'm the only one), and I have a guitar here, so at midnight, we'll sing some songs we usually do. Paul Simon, Beatles, Sloop John B, songs that a 12 string guitar goes well with. Then chill out for some walks along the waterfront on January 1, like we always do, and then back to the real world. Florida, New York, Washington, etc. By February, I should be back in Germany. My wife will leave from New York well before me.
