I imagine 99.999% of the population will be quite happy to say goodbye to 2020 tonight. I'm hoping and praying 2021 will go a little better than 2020 did. For today's Three on Thursday, I have three current but random things.
1. As a family, we are doing all we can to ensure 2021 is an improvement over 2020. To start, we'll be taking our tree down tomorrow and eating black eyed peas. Lots and lots of black eyed peas!
We don't do a whole lot to celebrate New Year's Eve. We stay home, usually in our pj's, eat a "fancy" meal, and by "fancy," I just mean a meal we don't normally have. There will nothing fancy about it. After all, we'll most likely be in our pj's. This year, to celebrate the end of 2020, Mike will be grilling a standing rib roast and Sarah has plans to cook way more food to go with it than we'll possibly be able to eat. I plan to knit while they cook.
2. Yes, my butt will be parked on the couch with my knitting and my new Gilmore Girls DVD's while Mike and Sarah cook. Hey - I need my rest for the tree removal ordeal tomorrow.
I'm really enjoying the fast pace of my Felix pullover. I'm also loving the ragland design. It's just enough different to make the simple sweater a little bit special. I'm definitely going to knit the cardigan version sometime soon.
3. Miss Hayden got her two front teeth for Christmas! Actually, she got those two on the bottom around Thanksgiving, but the top two, which are still too small to see, popped through just a few days before Christmas. She has these baby Cheeto's looking snacks that she likes and it was so fun to hear her biting and crunching them instead of gumming them.
That pretty much sums up our holiday. I hope yours will be as relaxed and enjoyable. Stay safe out there!
Happy New Year!
