Farewell to 2018

December 31, 2018

Good morning.  Well, this is it!  Tonight is New Year's Eve.  Tomorrow we start another brand new year.  If you still have stuff that has to be done in 2018, then today is the day to do it.  By tonight, we'll all be celebrating with family and friends, and watching fireworks displays that welcome in the new year. 

Pogo and I will watch the fireworks displays on TV.  That's if we're still awake.  We usually get to watch the fireworks from other countries because they are on before midnight here.  Sometimes though, we are already asleep before midnight and miss the beautiful display put on here in Boston. 

In some parts of the world, it is already the new year.  The celebrations in New Zealand are being televised this morning.  Japan is about fourteen hours ahead of us, so in less than three hours, Japan will celebrate the New Year.  (I looked this one up because my son in law is there.) 

This morning, I need to call the furnace guy to make the arrangements to have the work done on my furnace.  Then I need to go the bank, and then stop by the market for a few things.  This afternoon, I'm going to try cooking French fries and hamburgers in my air fryer.  I haven't tried the air fryer yet because I've just been too busy to try something new.  But today's the day I try it.  I've already looked up the directions for cooking French fries (on Google). 

Did you know that if you are a member of Amazon and have Comcast Cable, you can now watch all the prime movies on your television.  Just say "show me Amazon Prime movies" to your remote.  I haven't tried it yet but I might later today.  Just to see if it works.

I found another funny tee shirt in one of my catalogues that I want to share.  This one makes me chuckle.  Sounds like it could make for a fun day.

Today I have a new quick page for you.  This will be the last one for this year.  Later in the week, I'll post the first one for the new year.  Enjoy.

Here is your download link:

Now it's time for me to get busy here and call the furnace guy.  I have to catch him in his office before he starts his work day.  At eight o'clock, he leaves the office and will be on the road most all day.  So, till next year folks, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Hope the furnace guy can get you all fixed up! We stay in on New Year's Eve, I am usually asleep when the New Year rolls in! I need to scoot out today too, bank and grocery store. I am not looking forward to it, but I must! Have a blessed day dear friend, HAPPY NEW YEAR ahead!

I hope you have a wonderful New Year's Eve and get to see some of the fireworks. My Pastor and his wife have an open house each year from 6-10. That way we get home before the crazy people get on the road. Then I either watch the fireworks from Philly on TV or if I'm really tired I go to bed. Whatever you do, enjoy tonight!
