Good Evening Everyone!
I'm feeling a little better today. My stress level
has been over the top lately as I am sure you
could tell. To add to that, my dish washer
chose the week before the busiest cooking
week of the year to croak. So,
instead of doing Christmas things last night,
Lehmer and I were out in the madness on
a Friday night making a hasty decision about
a dishwasher. Thank goodness they can
install it on Wednesday. To add insult to injury,
I gave a lousy upper respiratory thing going on
(but a little better today due to lots of meds).
Now, for the good news - the tree is finally up
and it smells so good (even with the respiratory
thing I can still smell it). Makes me happy indeed.
Even got a little decorating done today, but there
are boxes everywhere. I sure hope we do not
have any unexpected guests. Went to my
friend's house today and cut lots of magnolia
for decorating. I have plenty of boxwood and
holly on our property, so it is just a matter of
Going to Richmond tomorrow to see my sweet
Avery and celebrate my sweet Hollis' birthday.
I am lugging all of my ingredients, pans,
and recipes so I can bake while babysitting
Monday and Tuesday. This should be
interesting, but hopefully he will take
some good naps for me.
Anyway, just checking in with all of you
and thanking you for all of your sweet
comments of late. To Mouse - I wanted to
say that I didn't dare mention how many
candles will be on her cake. You know how
women are about those numbers, even though
she is still so young.
Take care and "Be Merry"!!
