Anyone have traditions for New Year's Day?

For us, it's black-eyed peas/ham/rice, cabbage, some kind of greens and watch the Rose Bowl parade and game.

The tree comes down...get ready for back to school and back to work. This year, oldest daughter gets ready to go back to Colorado (flight is tomorrow)- thankfully, with a great deal less stress than when she left Denver just before Christmas!

hlac, I was surprised the Denver airport wasn't better prepared for the snowstorms in regards to the passengers. Hope she has a safe trip.

The usual southern goodies, blackeyed peas, ham, cornbread, greens, Rose Parade, family, cleaning up the last of the Christmas decorations.

Have a wonderful New Year, don't forget to get your "movement" in today.

Usually watch the parade, but DD has a movie in now.

Mom & I used to always do a new puzzle on New Years Day. But that stopped when I got kids that could reach the tabletop!! lol

If DH pulls out the Christmas boxes then I'll finish cleaning up the decorations. Tree normally would come down today, but that didn't last past Christmas this year.

I would like to put borders on a quilt, and make my fleece jacket today. Finish making turkey soup for dinner, perhaps.

Enjoy your day!

Well, I'm about Bowl Gamed out! I enjoyed the Parade this year....specially since I found that HGTV had it on without breaking for commercials!

I put the sashings on a quilt, got a cheater I Spy pinned and ready to sew on the lines and have my I Spy Swap ready to mail on Wed. I didn't do anything I thought I'd do to practice meandering. Oh well....

I got an email from my 13 yo DGD who has been up north since the 22nd, she's more than ready to come back home. She and I usually put a jigsaw puzzle together and watch the ball drop on New Year's Eve.......I miss her....
