How long before your resolutions evaporate like mist before the sun? A week? A month? 365 days?
This year is the first time I have made only ONE resolution : This year I’m going to live in total surrender – I’m not going to fight anything! If a problem pops up, I’ll quietly find a solution but I won’t fight it. Every problem has a solution – I’m going to surrender to the Field of Infinite Possibilities to give me the answer.
On New Year’s Eve I hosted a small lunch party which I thoroughly enjoyed. We had lobster bisque (from a can) and I made Nigel Slater’s Mulled Lamb with roast potatoes and mixed vegetables to follow with stewed apple (with cinnamon and raisins) and/or pineapple and lemon fridge tart to finish. Coffee, tea and brandy kept us talking for a while and then it was me fighting the dishes in the kitchen. Oops, I said ‘fighting’! Well, they didn’t fight back!
Afterwards, the house back in order, this picture just had to be taken and shared …
Two happy and tired boxer ladies asleep on the sofa.
Before I sign off, let me say that I hope your 2014 will be filled with every happiness you could ever wish for. And carry that forward to the rest of your days!
And this morning I heard one of the best jokes ever :
A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird’s mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. John tried and tried to change the bird’s attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to ‘clean up’ the bird’s vocabulary.
