Total Sweetness ringing in the new year.
Nothing rings in the new year like our tradition of banging pots and pans. Growing up we’d get together with our cousins, eat tons of good food,play games, watch movies, and when the time came, countdown to midnight. 10, 9, 8…3, 2, 1 BANG, Yell, BANG, Yell, BANG, Yell. You get the idea. We still do it today, only all of us cousins are grown and our children are the crazy pan bangers. Of course we still get into it too.
Speaking of cold weather, we woke up this morning to nature’s own celebration of the new year. Nothing says new and fresh like a perfect blanket of glistening snow.
Super cold spells make for beautiful icicles too.
And if I could make a puzzle out of one of my pictures today it would be this one of a sideways growing icicle traveling all the way down the side of the tree branch in my front yard; wind and gravity partnering with the cold weather. Amazing!
