|New Year's Eve Dinner - Compliments of Neighbor S!|
A very rainy New Year's Eve here in southern California!
My daughter and I had a rather relaxed day, today. We picked up our last grocery order of the year at noon and I did another load of laundry in the afternoon. During a break in the rain, I took some photos of the back garden:

Daughter and I had some of the mini croissants we bought for brunch. Then, in the evening, neighbor S provided us with a wonderful dinner of barbecued meats (pork ribs, beef, and chicken), chicken wings, rice, bread, lavash flat bread, and several desserts (jello, homemade gata, and homemade Napoleons)! A feast! I gave her a small packet of chocolate truffles in return.
It is 10:30 p.m., now, and daughter and I are watching the New Year's Eve countdown show on TV. We will toast the New Year with cranberry juice or orange juice and I will boil some milk on the stove and make a little milkrice.
On this New Year's Eve, I thank all my blog friends for reading my blog and for taking the time to comment. You have all been very kind and supportive and I consider you all as friends. I wish you all a wonderful New Year's Eve and a very happy New Year.
On this last day of 2022, I am grateful for:
- Having lived through another year in relative good health
- For my daughter's good health and being able to have her home during this time
- For family, friends and wonderful neighbors such as S
- For the community of blog friends
- For the blessing of rain at the end of a year of on-going drought
Today's joyful activity was enjoying the lovely dinner provided by S.
Happy New Year, everyone!
