Happy New Year!!



Yes, I'm early. But I'm pretty sure I won't make it to midnight so I thought it was best to say type it now. ((giggle))

Not too much going on at the ol' Countryfolk homestead for New Year's Eve. I'll be treating myself to root beer, a bag of Cracker Jack and a Dove candy bar. Not necessarily in that order. But hey, It's New Year's Eve... I may go a little crazy. ((hee hee)) Hubs has his stash of goodies too.
I'm hoping to find a Three Stooges Marathon somewhere on the dial.
(Man, does anyone call it a "dial" anymore
As I was waiting for my kitchen china hutch hardware to arrive in the mail today
(which by the way it didn't, even though it was supposed to. hmpf!) I decided to switch my corner hutch and commode around the living room. I'm not one for symmetry. But I like balance. It's funny how moving only two pieces of furniture balances out the room and actually gives you more room.

Now I'm on a mission to find a portrait of Frederick Douglass
(friend to President Lincoln) to hang next to him.
He spoke to a group of 12,000, (not far from us) at the Madison County Fair back on Oct. 6, 1856.

A little bit of political trivia...
Did you know President Lincoln was a Republican? Many are shocked when they find out.
My mother was one who didn't know. She actually didn't believe me at first.

Well, it's time for me to go hog wild and tear into my Cracker Jack bag!! Woo hoo!!

Happy New Year, All!!!!!!

Happy New Year, Karin!! I can't believe I'm still UP! But getting ready to hit the ol' hay after my comment. I love Dove bars....so creamy and yummy! Hubby and I are huge Three Stooges fans....crack me up! Have you ever seen the Stooges movie? It is hilarious!

Your living room looks beautiful! Love the switch you've done in there. I totally get the balance thing you're talking about. My hubby laughs at me when I say, "Ok, this side needs to be balanced with the other side." Lol

Ooh, what prize did ya get? :-P

Denise, when my hubs saw me dragging furniture around he asks, "NOW what are you doing my crazy, little Chickie?" (Chickie is his nickname for me)
I responded, "Move along. There's nothing to see here."
