Last day of 2017

The calendar change is my favorite holiday. This year I get to celebrate even more than usual. We leave tomorrow making this celebration look a little like packing for a trip than a celebration, but I am definitely doing all of this with great joy and anticipation of the year to come!

One of the big projects of the day is to finish up all the food in the fridge. I am making pizza with literally every leftover scrap as toppings! Anne is THE chef around here. I am the leftover scraps cook. This morning I made omelets to use up the eggs...  I will also bake a small chocolate cake to use the last two eggs. I cooked all the onions and meats this morning. We still have a little bit of goat cheese, brie, and grated Mexican mix, artichoke hearts, a tomato, and pizza sauce from last week. Perfect! I will divide most of these ingredients between the pizza for today and the pizza pockets I'll make for breakfast tomorrow. And that will just about take care of the fridge.

2017 was a year of immense change. Life took twists and turns. Things I had planned to do this year were pushed out of the way in favor of new adventures. 2018 brings a major adventure that a couple of years ago, I would have said I was doing solo. Now it's an even bigger project with the challenge of adding a partner to that project. Life is good. I am lucky to have so many options and opportunities.
