Normally on Sunday’s it’s leftovers! However Skoots1mom and I decided to close out the holiday vacation with a little fondue shindig over at her house. We pooled our resources and I whipped up a cheese fondue and a chocolate fondue, I had a loaf of Italian bread in the freezer as well as a pound cake and a few pork medallions that were just perfect for cubing up for fondue. The last time we attempted this the cheese fondue was not so successful so we both headed back to the computer to find out exactly how to produced a good cheese fondue. Well we hit the nail on the head this time. It could not been simpler, a little white wine, a lot of Gruyere and a tiny bit of flour and a smidgen of nutmeg and you wind up with this wonderful bubbly creamy oowie gooie cheese fondue. We also had chicken, shrimp and pork and we had cubed up bread and apple slices for the cheese and then we ended with the pound cake for dipping into the chocolate.
Can y’all say fabulous???? Cause it was!

Muffinhead makes the front page.
I was not even aware that they had a New Years celebration geared for the children on the square, but apparently they do. My sweet Muffinhead and her mom went down for the fun. I can’t blame the photographer of the paper for zeroing in on her, I mean after all she is the MOST BEAUTIFUL CHILD ON THE PLANTET, but I’m not bragging, well maybe a little!!!!

Do y’all keep a journal? I have for years, I have a whole Rubbermaid trunk full of journals. My favorite ones are the little black composition books. After years of trial and error these seem to be the most economical and the pages don't fall out, sometime you have to tape the black bindings to keep them in place but for my money there is simply no beating these wonderful little black notebooks.
Last night when I returned home from my Prayer Group I was able to close out one journal and open up a fresh new one. I recoded the final date on the front cover and noted that it was dated from 12-21-2009 and my final entry in it was dated 12-28-2010, so nearly a year of my life is encapsulated within the pages of this small notebook. I will admit that the frequency of my entries has become a bit less daily since the beginning of my blog, but I do still keep my journal close at hand at all times. There are just things, random thoughts that require the personal touch of a pen and paper. Not to mention that there are some things that will always be private between me and the Lord. We all have them, private thoughts, and I for one can not even comprehend my life without the outlet of my journals.
If ya don't keep one then take my advice go out to the store and pick one of these up, most of the time they are under $2.00, I am a totally happy camper when I can get them for $1.00, when this happens I pick up a whole stack….love em!!!

A no stress day and a no picture day.
Saturday, January 8
I finally got all the ornaments off the tree.
However most of them have migrated over to the dinning room table where they awaiting being carefully wrapped in tissue paper and gently tucked away in various boxes or zip lock bags. This I can do at my leisure, the majority of the rest of the decoration as well as the tree are all back in storage.
Sorta looks like my Christmas tree threw up don’tcha think!
Well this week I was determined to get my 365 post done on Saturday, new year new goals. I am going to try to make a more concerted effort to get my 365 done earlier so I can jump in with all of you on Sunday morning, keeping my fingers crossed. I mean it is only week two. A lot can happen in 50 more weeks!
For more 365 y’all head over to Sara’s and link up!
