A New Year Begins …

Well, it began several hours ago (or longer depending on where YOU live).  And how did I spend the first day of the new year?  Cleaning, doing laundry, reading blog posts, making dal for dinner.  You know, fun stuff.  (Well, making dal is fun in part because I use a slow-cooker.)

But perhaps the biggest, most important thing I did was close out all the Clemency novel-in-progress posts.  Remember, I said I was going to do this.  Now it remains for me to print the thing story and proceed with *reading, reviewing, editing, repeat from * until finished.

I do hope everyone has had a Happy New Year’s Eve and an even happier New Year’s Day.

  1. Same here, except collard greens, black-eyed peas and crispy cornbread made in a cast iron skillet. It has been a quiet New Year’s. I hope the year stays as calm as the day 🙂 Happy New Year!!!

    1. Happy New Year! Dal is an Indian dish made with kidney beans, lentils, and spices such as cumin, tumeric, cardamon, coriander, dry mustard, and allspice (I think I got them all 😉 ). Best served with basmati rice 🙂

    1. Happy New Year, Pam! I meant to provide a link but I was in a bit of hurry. Very easy to make in a slow cooker (my favorite kind of cooking).
