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.

Oh glad to hear you are among the living! LOL I knew you were alive from the messages we had the last few days. Loved the pic of Great Aunt Betty, was it? Looks like one happy gal! Glad you are having a good time back home in TN.

I thought you'd be away from snow, but apparently not. Oh well, you're comfortable with lots of family around. Glad to see the post.

So happy to hear that you are doing fine and loving Tennessee. I've been wondering what in the world happened to you. Keep in touch a little more often, and have a wonderful, happy New Year!
