Goings on for Christmas
*Radar hung his stocking last week.....
*Cranberry sock number one .....DONE. (for me.....aren't I bad?) I think I could knit everyone socks next year if I start the day after Christmas this year.
*Cowls were well received today at Spay Neuter Clinic.
*I'm drinking: champagne....seriously
*I'm eating: Puppy chow candy given to the volunteers at the shelter today
*I'm baking: Cheesy potatoes for our early B family Christmas tomorrow night.
*I'm done: baking the baked beans. I make awesome baked beans from scratch.I follow My Auntie Rita's recipe with corn syrup and brown sugar and mustard. I could leave out the ketchup entirely and I 'd still love them. Fireman likes them with a touch of Ketchup though. I add a pound of crispy bacon on my own.
* IF I get one more PERFECT Christmas family letter I may go nuts. My family letter would be far from the pictures these people paint. Why is it you get these letters when all is well with people? You never get the ones that mention the nervous breakdown or the alcoholics or the like....
oops that was down right Scroogy of me. But it brings up a favorite new quote that the little Silent Carmelite nuns say: God is with us in the reality of our lives, not the fantasy of our lives. Thank Goodness!
