On the 5th day of Christmas my true love gave to me 5 Golden Rings.

Check over last year’s resolutions. Today is Still Need to Do Day. So getter done!

It is believed that Washington told his baker general, Christopher Ludwick, to come up with a soup that “will warm and strengthen the body of a soldier and inspire his flagging spirit.” Although National Pepper Pot Day celebrates Pepper Pot soup it is unlikely that Christopher Ludwick was the first to make it. Pepper Pot soup probably originated in the Caribbean with exotic spices and brought with the slaves and freedmen to the Americas. Warm spices and peppers to make a person warm inside and out.

It’s only fitting that today is National Relaxation Day.

The morning after the day before.

The weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding yesterday. Blue skies, moderate temperatures, no humidity. The setting was wonderful at Caradoc Sands, with a beautiful waterfalls behind the bride and groom. A dragonfly hoovered over the pond watching the ceremony. It was such a joy to see people dressed up for the occasion. I played flute, while they signed the legal documents: What a Wonderful World.

Congratulations to my nephew and his new wife.
