January 1, 2007

My mother had a tradition of taking down Christmas on the first of January, then placing white flowers throughout the house. I uphold her customs. White flowers on January 1st...and black-eyed peas for luck.

That is a lovely tradition, and you've inspired me to buy some flowers for my new apartment. Thank you - and happy new year!

Our January tradition was to eat Pinto Beans every day . . . since that's all we could afford after Christmas.

View: That's one of my resolutions this year. To make some improvement to my home every week.

Pagan: You'll have lots of luck this year.

Penny: I need to do a LOT of things more often...laughing. Glad to see you around on the blogs.

Smash: The grocery store had run out of black-eyed peas, and the woman next to me, also trying to find some, said she had been in three other stores...also sold out. She said, "People sure must be feeling like they need luck this year."

Pod: Thanks for stopping by on a holiday. As you can see, we never close. And thanks to Reya for bringing a lot of people to your blog today.

Nice! I'm importing that little gem myself! Also I have to defrock my apartment because my beloved tree has become a sappy fire hazard.

And I'll take the peas, but you know you've got to have your greens with them!

Are they poisonous? Last time my wife put out flowers my cat almost died from poisoning.

Did you make black eyed peas with rice? 'Cuz it's peas for peace and rice for riches...can't miss out on the riches.
