"You don't really suppose, do you, that all your adventures and escapes were managed by mere luck, just for your sole benefit? You are a very fine person, Mr. Baggins, and I am very fond of you; but you are only quite a little fellow in the wide world after all!"

What a great home week when avocados from my uncle are ripe and ready to eat! I made guacamole twice this week and it was delicious! I didn't use as many ingredients as I usually do for guacamole-- this is a much simpler and quicker recipe!

guacamole; avocados, tomatoes, cilantro, salsa, pepper.

Happy New Year! This year was crazy at the Rose Parade floats-- we spent more time waiting in line for the shuttle than seeing the floats. But I'm thankful for the best date ever, who remained cool when I was not, and still managed to smile and make me smile.

Ever since high school, I've kept all sorts of things in my happy box. There are cards, tickets, programs, drawings, and so much more. Every so often, I like to go through my things and reread cards, look through pictures, and throw out things I really don't need to keep. If you've sent me a card in the last decade or so, I probably still have it saved. I'm not quite sure what I expect to do with everything in the future. So many memories.
