The ball has dropped and the new year is now here!
There were LOTS OF PEOPLE out New Year's Eve here in Charleston, it was a balmy and WARM NIGHT, no coats needed, just go out in shirt sleeves.
Of course, the "young people" were out in droves, dressed in their spangly best, eager to get into the clubs and have a night of dancing.
It was supposed to rain, but that didn't begin until much much later after midnight so that was nice
one of my favorite treats on New Year's Eve.......big white ice cold shrimp!! YUM
a beautiful sunny Winter day in Charleston
It still looks like Christmastime in the city
I like to walk around and see what all is blooming........this was my favorite today!! Isn't it gorgeous?
Our little pansies are doing great! Happy and bobbing in the breeze
Mr. Front Porch picked these out of the kitchen garden on Christmas Eve:
they were pretty much immediately washed and chopped up to go on our Christmas Eve pizzas!
|pepperoni, Canadian bacon, two different cheeses, onions, red peppers, green peppers, olives, mushrooms, hamburger.....so many goodies!|
This cute family was enjoying a warm and sunny day on the Battery. I'm so glad that cold spell is GONE! The week has been in the 70s and I love that. It got up to 80 yesterday and felt so good to throw open all the windows and enjoy the fresh air this week.
Other scenes on this sunny day:
and folks enjoying a meal outside.
Wreath with lots of pretty long ribbons!
the garland around this door is so pretty, we had to stop and make pictures! They have it like this every year.

Dinner and a movie:
New years day movie was Holiday in the Wild (2019) with Rob Lowe and Kristen Davis--this was a good movie, I think y'all would like it too!
New Years day supper brought one of my favorites---black eye peas, whole green beans, white beans, ham, peppers, onions, YUM!
