As I have said elsewhere, 2017, you are in a forever time out corner and 2018, I am watching you. Meanwhile, Happy New Year! We’ve already started putting away holidays decorations, among them wonderful cards from friends who had their eyes on Alabama four weeks ago.

I always tie our holiday cards with ribbon before storing.

As I reflect on the year ahead, I’ll be thinking about the great meal had today intended to bring luck  and blessings the way greens and black-eyed peas are supposed to do.

Meal brings new year blessings (we pray).

Tote bag filled with books for the new semester. Abstract written for a conference. Beginnings of an essay (or is it the next book in progress – finally!) written, too, over the break.

But for now, another week of rest and yes, that Bama-Clemson game tonight. I like how Georgia is putting it on Oklahoma. SEC forever!
