10..9..8..7..6..5..4..3..2..1 HAPPY NEW YEAR..

Saturday, December 31, 2005

So we did the sparkler thing to top off our New Year's Eve at home celebration. Out on the patio in -10 degree weather with coats over our pajamas. I am ready for all the merry making to be over and regular life to get back in order again. Especially in terms of the food. OH, the food... We had Chinese Take-Out, as I had mentioned yesterday. I swear to you, this photo was not staged in any way. Notice how the sweet and sour sauce drips match the rice container and the egg roll sauce drips match the bbq pork container? I tell you, I knew I liked order, but even in the mess I see matching colours.And then I discovered that when you try and press the top down on a styrofoam cup, this is what can happen. It only took me thirty-four years and a PhD to figure this one out.
Right now, I just wish we had nothing in the fridge that had plastic wrap on it. We have leftovers to feed the Nation. It is really embarrassing. I am making a monetary donation to the Food Bank next week. In the meantime, please, somebody, come over and help us eat this food before it goes bad.
Have you ever taken a picture of the inside of your fridge? Scary.
So what are you up to this fresh first day of 2006?

    My place looks like Mother Hubbard's compared to yours. We are on our way over. LOL!
    Happy New Year!

    Your refrigerator is very organized. You should be so proud to take such a nice picture.

    The food looks really yummy. Rob and I would like a place setting at the table also.

    Happy New Year!

    Lois;
    Welcome back! I've mised you. Happy New Year to you!

    Connie;
    It only looks organized because everything is crammed in there. I can't actually find anything and heaven knows what is way in the back. I wish you and Rob could come over tomorrow and help us get rid of a few things :)

    I LOVE the Chinese food photos! :-)

    Happy New Year to all of you! I'm going to take a brisk walk around the block this afternoon and then help the kids clean up the yard - lots of firework debris around here.

    (the inside of my fridge is password protected and no one gets to see it without an appointment)

    I live with roommates, so my refrigerator is often a bit of a science project.

    I'm off to find a bamboo steamer or too. Is anything even open today?

    Happy New Year!

    That's one well stocked refridgerator and really quite impressively organised!

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    oops, two the number, not too the "also"

  1. Blogger Corrina said:

    Pushing on a styrofoam cup is TOTALLY something I would do! A very happy New Year to you and your fam, Cathy!

  1. Blogger Dale said:

    Just dropped in via Michelle's blog. Love your "I am Canadian" rant. Me too! Happy New Year!

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    my fridge is the home of many living organisms. I could clean it but then i would disturb these little friends that keep the cheeses company.
    Happy New Year!
    hugs xx

  1. Blogger Gretchen said:

    Our fridge looks like yours. :) Everyone comes here and never takes anything home.

    Hope you have a happy new year!

  1. Blogger OhioRuthie said:

    Happy New Year!
    You really seem to enjoy the holidays!

  1. Blogger Berlinbound said:

    You are so bold ... opening your fridge to the world ... I'm not that brave.

  1. Blogger SkyeBlue2U said:

    You have great pictures. Just relaxing until the next storm hits and then it's back to work. But wait! Once I do tonight it's a week off, so don't feel to bad for me. Just one more set of eight hours. Happy New Year!

  1. Blogger Dr. Deborah Serani said:

    Love the photos. Missed you too.

    Best wishes to you and yours for this 2006 year!

    Ironing! Pathetic eehh! I have to, i must have 2 weeks worth of clothes in the basket. I had to sit on it just like a suitcase to squash everything in!
    I may reward myself with a swim later :o)
    I see my buddy Dale has ventured over here, he's a pretty cool Canadian too :)

    Password protected hee hee hee...Mr.C and our son went for a short walk to day but it was far too cold out to go too far. We ended up going to our favourite haunts; Starbucks and the bookstore.

    Stephanie;
    I hope you found your bamboo steamer. Let me know if it works out. I've never had one.

    fb;
    It is certainly well stocked, although we were able to clear out the take-out leftovers. We invited my husbands parents to come over but they declined. That is a whole blog in and of its' own; my supreme annoyance with my in-laws, retards that they are....

    Stephanie;
    I knew what you meant :)

    Corrina;
    Phew, though I was the only nut around here...

    Dale;
    Welcome! Fellow Canadian. Then you will be aware that this is from a Molson's commmercial.

    Chloe;
    You always have such a positive and clever spin on things!

    Gretchen;
    Welcome! Please come and help yourself...

    Ruthie;
    So glad to hear fomr you again. I really do enjoy the holidays. The post-holiday time can be such a let-down unfortunately.

    Richard;
    Bold or retarded? Mr.C to me today; you blogged about our fridge????!!!

    SkyeBlue;
    Thanks to my new camera! Yeah! Thanks. Here's to some time off...

    Dr.Deb;
    Welcome Back, Doc!:)

    I don't iron. Gave it up years ago. I just hang stuff in the closet and let the wrinkles sort themselves out.:)
