Eating Black-eyed Peas and Collard Greens

                                                 Did you make a New Years resolution?


                                                                  Me neither!

We (Michael and me) did drive up to Wakefield to join Shirley, John and Chris for our New Years Good Luck Lunch.

                                  The rest of them ordered the delicious barbeque.  

Me, I was taking no chances!! I stuck with the southern tradition of eating black-eyed peas and collard greens on New Years Day that is supposed to bring good luck and prosperity for the coming year. Let's see if it works 'cause I sure ate my share that day. 

An update from my last post...

The Covid is gone from my daughter's family. Thank the Lord for that one!

My sister is out of ICU and may get to go back to rehab in a few days. Thank the Lord for that!

And, grandson-in-law's mother was intubated to take over her breathing so her lungs could rest. She had pneumonia in both lungs as well as the Covid. Last news is that they are having to give her less oxygen now and hopefully in a few days she can go back to breathing on her own. However, the road ahead of her is still long and arduous. 

thanks for the prayers! 


  1. Good to hear the good news...wish it were all so good.

    I have never eaten any of those good luck foods. Probably explains a lot. 🥴

  2. Good news lifts the heart. I've never eaten black eyed peas nor collard greens. We enjoyed ham and scalloped potatoes on New Year's Day.

  3. Your new year's goodies look delicious. Prayers for all for recovery and good health and wishes for a happy and especially for a healthy new year.

  4. Noticed my comment didn't post here from a couple of days back - I tried to leave it from my phone but apparently no luck!


Thank you for your visit, your comment and your friendship. You have just made my day.
