This was my first New Year's Day in the apartment and I warned Hans in advance that if The Twilight Zone was on, he was in trouble!
It was, he was, and I had a wonderful day!!!
Just so you don't think I'm a total ogre, we do have another TV, and as long as Hans can see the picture, he's ok. So he watched football (muted) while I watched my Twilight Zones, and sewed.
Hans' mother had a saying (shared by many) that went something like this: whatever you do on New Year's Day; you'll end up doing for the rest of the year.
I sure hope so!
Now, I'm not a superstitious person (at least I don't think I am) but a couple of things happened on New Year's Day that, if I were a superstitious, would have me humming a happy little tune.
I was making breakfast, and when I was cracking the eggs open I thought they all seemed awfully big. Then I realized I'd gone and bought Jumbo Eggs instead of Large (the grocery store was NUTS and I also went and bought jalepenos instead of green chiles!).
Check it out!
A double yolked egg!! The two smaller ones toward the bottom were in one egg shell.
I think this is maybe only about the third time I've found one, and I made Hans come into the kitchen to look!
Then Hans walked up the street to get us a paper, and when he came home he was excited to show me the lucky penny he found on the sidewalk.
A double yolked egg, and a lucky penny, all on New Year's Day!
I'll take my luck any way I can get it!
