Turning of the Year

Yes, you do, Coffee Mates. You have my interest and my appreciation and, hey, let's not forget -- I love you people. (Insert big beaming grin.)

Thank you all for hanging with me through 2007. I hope we can all do it again throughout 2008.

In the coming year I wish for you -- enough. Enough love, enough of what you need and enough of what you want.

Take care, keep safe, and don't forget -- the coffee is always on! Even tonight, when the adult beverage of choice is champagne. Just to make the turning of the year official.

Hugs and love from Dee ...

Is it OK if I have a glass of wine instead? :-)

Blessed New Year Dee and may your roof never leak again.

Dee said...

Wildeyez, welcome to the perpetual coffee hour and thank you for the New Year salud! Same back atcha.

Bonnie, of course you can have a glass of wine -- but champagne is, after all, just wine with tickle-bubbles added. Isn't it? New Year hugs to you and Wil, love.

Hi Dee, Happy New Year. Why don't you drop in to my OD Open House on my diary. It's been going on for nearly a week ending this evening. We're having a ball. Wilma

Wendy said...

Dee, wishing you the same. As long as you're here, I'll be reading. Thanks for all the recipes and other good times this past year. I'm looking forward to more good times ahead.

Dee said...

Wilma, I'll be right over!

Wendy, as they say in Nawluns (smile), let the good time roll. (I said it in English because I can never remember the French.)

John. Wow! I just looked at my world map with the day/night shadow -- didn't realize you had slipped into the next year already. I'll be tipping a glass right back atcha later tonight from here.

By the way, did you notice, in the drop-down box below, you can sign in with your WordPress identity?

Just back from acquiring a couple bottles of bubbly ... pomegranate juice. That should see me through the evening very nicely! Laisse bon temps rouler!

I suppose I shouldn't admit that le bon temps is going to be the aforesaid sparkling pomegranate juice & a Twilight Zone marathon. But that's grand enough for me!

Thanks for a glorious 2007, Dee, and the best picnic ever! We'll do it again, I promise! Here's to 2008, may it be peaceful, prosperous, healthy & happy!

Dee said...

Kate, I think your bubbly P-juice sounds terrific. I knew they did that with apple juice and cranberry juice but had no idea they'd zested up the pomegranate. And Twilight Zone! I loved that program -- and Rod Serling. And thanks for the quickie French lesson! (smile) Here's to another picnic. Hooray!

Kate & Jim said...

Happy New Year, Dee!

We're glad to be here and view your writings.

We wish you 'enough' too! ;)

Dee said...

Happy New Year to you! I do enjoy your special way of preparing food, describing it, and photographing it all for us. Thank you. It's appreciated. You really should have your own show on the Food Network! There are several on there now that could easily be replaced by you!

Dee said...

Bex, you want to be careful about the compliments (which *are* appreciated) because you might be forced into Quality Control duty -- and I don't generally show you the experiments that fail. (smile)
