I'm a wife and a Mother of 4 grown children. I have 4 grandchildren who are my joy. This is my journey to rediscovering who I am. In other words, what comes after being a stay at home Mom. Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Daughter, Sister, Blogger, Writer, stubborn and opinionated, voracious reader and a seeker of truth in all things....in other words me.
Happy New Year! I think black-eyed peas are icky, so I’ll eat some “lucky bacon” instead :)
My family feels the same way, ha ha! I actually like them but it is a strange southern custom.
I ate ham and mashed potatoes.
I hope you write more soon. I miss reading you.
Yum! We had “Georgia Caviar” (Paula Deen’s recipe) for our black-eyed pea fix. Hope you’re having a wonderful holiday and here’s to a happy, healthy new year!
Here in Italy we have to eat lentils and wear red knickers for Good Luck – I ate the lentils so here’s hoping!! Oh, and I wanted to say thanks – in 2009 I was introduced into the American side of blogging through you so…….thankyou!!! Wishing you and your family a happy 2010.
I think that you are about the third blogger to mention black eyed peas in relation to New Year’s. I have never heard of such a thing. Could you please let me know the hype?
Black-eyed peas are a southern tradition. You are suppose to eat them on New Years day to have good luck all year long.
Doesn’t 2010 sound so futuristic?
No black-eyed peas for me, but Happy New Year anyhow!!
Happy New Year and much luck and love to you too, my bloggy friend. BTW…tag, you’re it. http://peripheralperceptions.wordpress.com/2010/01/10/tag-youre-it/
