‘Gingerly’ Awaiting The New Year

Saturday Dec 30th –


I had limes to use up and knew just how to do so.
I made some gingerade, a drink weโ€™d had in Hawaii and it turned out to be really similar!


I took it over to the parents house for everyone to try.
It was a bit too strong for most of our tastes but if I could find another flavour to mix in or maybe more honey, it could be a really good drink, especially for hotter days ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I hung out until supper time, which turned out to be fresh fish and shrimp from the store, picked up by Dad and ate along side gnocchi with a lemon basil sauce โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿค



Sunday Dec 31st –


New Yearโ€™s Eve day.

We didnโ€™t go to church that morning as a New Years evening service would be happening late that night, so I stayed warm at home and ate the garlic parm bites Mike had got me before heโ€™d left, for brunch ๐Ÿ˜œ


Later that afternoon Dad retrieved me and I spent the rest of the last day of the year, at my parents โ˜บ๏ธ
We decided to stay back from the New Years service as it was inย the -40โ€™s that night, the sisters rental car wasnโ€™t starting well, even from inside the garage and some werenโ€™t feeling 100% ๐Ÿ™„

So we listened to a sermon by Bro. Branham and then made a little sampling of snacks โ˜บ๏ธ

I tried something Iโ€™d wanted to make for a while, brie bites with cranberry sauce and rosemary.


They were good but needed tweaks… less croissant dough or maybe filoย pastry instead, for some crunch โ˜บ๏ธ

We didnโ€™t mean to stay up until it became 2018, all feeling old and un excited about the strike of midnight, but then a family video was put as it had recently been converted from cassette to CD.
We got distracted by our child selves and accidentally did stay up until 12:00…
Happy New Year! ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜‰
