Our First Day of the Year

I tried a new recipe for dinner last night: Chicken Curry with Pineapple and Coconut over rice.

We had a lazy day yesterday. Joe played his 5400th game of Freecell. He started at game one and is working his way through all of them. Yes, there are millions, so it will take him a while. I started a new drypoint and am liking the results. Today I hope to finish incising the image and pull a proof. I like this one much more than the other one I've been working on.

Gisele and Bill Thompson recently sent their friends CDs of their year's favorite music including Yo La Tengo, Johnny Cash, The Cramps, and Billie Holiday, among others. I listened while working in the studio. Terrific!

After dinner, while Joe read, I watched another episode of BBC's Hamish McBeth from netflix. It is a series about a police officer in a quirky little village in Scotland. Beautiful scenery - makes me want to go visit. On my lap, Sophie napped and purred (he can sleep and purr at the same time) after his own special New Year's day dinner of a bit of the chicken left over from dinner.


  1. Sounds like an ideal New Years Day to me! I am loving your blog.

  2. Thanks, Expats Again! Happy New Year to you!
