Two - Going for Three

Well, it was two years ago I started this blog, I never dreamed I would have as many loyal readers who would stick with me through thick and thin and continue to read my posts every time I write. I would like to say Thank You to each and every one of you for putting up with my shenanigans. May each of you have a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.

After 299 posts over the past two years this is my first photo and one of my favorites.

In turning over a new leaf this year I have joined the NaBloPoMo(National Blog Posting Month)and promised to blog every day. That means 31 blogs in 31 days for January. So hang onto your hats and we will see how far my pea brain will get me. If you like what you read please let me know -- and if you have a subject you think I should write about please let me know. I welcome all comments 'cause I love to get mail.

That's it for today!!

Where in the world is Jenny J???

Well, according to the emails and comments I have recieved I have been listed among the missing. A faithful reader even checked in at the post office to find out where I was.
Here's the scoop--- I wasn't really missing - I knew where I was all the time...well, at least most of it anyway.
I have a thousand excuses for not posting but I will only use one of them - a streak of laziness. It is hard once you get out of the groove to get back in it. They say it takes 21 days to break a habit. Well, I just got out of the habit of sitting down and writing every day and I find it harder to get used to it again.
There has been lots of news since I last posted-
There was Thanksgiving -

My trip to Tennessee on December 9. Meeting friends in Nashville for dinner - thanks again Lisa!! And Sam!! and my new friend Martha!!
The snowstorm of 2009 that literally shut down all of Johnson County and surrounding area - there are still some people without power since before Christmas.
Christmas was a really busy time with four (count 'em) Christmas Dinners. After all that food I managed to maintain my weight loss. Thanks to Ellie and Dortha for the inspiration!! I did really good except for those little cherry chocolate candies I seem to be addicted to. Ya' can't eat just one!
Have been doing lots of walking at the park --1-3 miles a day. Gotta walk off those biscuits and gravy I eat every day at Hardee's.
Weather here is bitter cold one day and 50 plus degrees the next-- Darn weatherman just can't make up his mind.
Visiting with friends and family, meeting new friends, renewing old acquaintances and comfort food (soupbeans, cornbread, fried cabbage and potatoes, and half runners) are just a few more of the highlights of my visit.
Hog jowls and blackeyed peas are on the menu for New Years Day. It will be a great way to start the New Year. If they keep feeding me like this --I will just have to stay!!!
Here are a few of the many photos I have taken in the past few weeks. As always, in case you forgot -- to view photo in larger size just double click on it.
