A new year, new changes, taking inventory of life………
That’s what we do isn’t it??!! We start the new year off right! We eat right, change habits, exercise more. You know, you have done it many times!!! It all sounds good and then, wham, something comes along and takes the wind out of your sails and you slide back. This year I am not going to get all hyped about “changes”!! I am just going to go back to the basics…….remind myself of what I want to be, where I want to go and what it is that I find important.
Above is a picture of a drink that I have made for years. When my youngest son was little he used to call it “nice drink”, so that is what we have called it. It is soooo simple and good for you!
16oz. of nonfat plain yogurt(1/2 of a large container)
16 frozen whole strawberries
splash of any kind of juice to mix(I use apple)
combine in blender and pour into glasses

We spent New Years Eve having fun with family. We ate lots of good food and had an awesome time with our “Yankee Swap”! Our daughter Amber and son-in-law Josh were gracious enough to host both families this year!
This is Amber and Layla
Their beautiful home and Christmas tree!
Yummy Lemon Bars that our son-in-laws Mom made.
Can you see all of the “Chef Guys” that she loves to collect?!!
My daughters Lasagna
home made rolls (frozen bread dough makes awesome bread and rolls) and sweet and sour Kielbasa(Slice Kielbasa, broil, and cover with La Choy sweet and sour sauce)
garlic parmesan roll ups that I made (crescent rolls spread with roasted garlic oil, Italian seasoning, parmesan cheese, and a little cheddar. Roll up, slice and bake)

Today we(Timothy) grilled some burgers in the warm California sunshine, (some of us took naps), undecorated our Christmas tree and burned it in the new fire pit. Another year begins the same as the past one ended.
New ideas to be brought to life, people to care about, life to be lived!!!
Happy New Year and may all of your resolutions come to fruition!
