guess what? i havent taken the decorations down yet. im lazy.
my neighbor who is a widow came over. we drank three bottles of wine and some champagne with cheese and ham and cheese gougeres.
we also received a jar of syrupy hibiscus flowers to put in our drinks for christmas. arent they pretty? i also saved fireworks from the fourth of july that i lit up at midnight. there are new neighbors dowm the street with children so we took a walk a couple of house down so all the children could shout "Happy New" it was a happy time indeed.
