B has heard tell that the way you spend New Year’s Day is an indication of how you’ll spend the coming year. If that’s true, we’ll be reading, writing, eating good food, listening to music, and enjoying each other’s company. What a great, quiet day we’ve had. I was up early and put on a pot of navy bean soup before I’d even had my coffee. When B eventually ambled downstairs he made some corn bread and doctored a can of collard greens (adding chipotle peppers and bacon). After the microwave-cleaning episode, we sat down and had a nice lunch.
