Happy New Year everyone! Mrs. CB and I spent a peaceful evening enjoying shrimp cocktail, Cheddar and Chardonnay fondue, chocolate mousse, and champagne. I even broke out the faux crystal. We watched Mean Girls
...I LOVED! that flick. I then subjected ki_finn
to my new Web Cam...such a gracious soul. Then we watched Teh Ball descend (because dropping a 6' diameter Waterford Crystal ball is just wrong!), listened to the fireworks (both official and unofficial)and fell asleep.
Today, we took down the exterior lights (no candy cane lights were harmed in this process) and watched the Rose Bowl Parade. Mrs CB watched the parade with her gardening book in her hands. I wish I could find a "productive" hobby. This afternoon has been spent alternating between napping and watching Bowl games. Listening to my wife yell, "Get him, get him, get him," is driving me to drink. :looks at pretteh Veramonte Cabernet:
I just placed a garlic/peppercorn crusted pork roast in the oven and will soon start the sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. Pork and kraut on NY Day= Good Luck! We are waiting for The Rose Bowl to begin during which we shall root for Michigan...but only because they are the Big Ten reps. They are playing Texas and I can't help but think of Abbie Carmichael...
Enjoy the new year, my friends.
