We have three more days of school and then we'll all be hunkering down. Sweeping and mopping, dusting and arranging, and making fruit cake. I found Mrs. Walker's Fruit Cake on Allrecipes.com. It calls for a lemon cake mix, lemon pudding mix, candied cherries and pineapple, pecans, and dried cranberries. No weird ingredients. I usually don't like fruit cake, but I've decided I don't need to LOVE every food that I eat and it's tradition (just as Mr. Banks says in Mary Poppins when he is singing about fox hunting). Mags and Gretchen Joanna are making mince pies. Do you have a good mince pie recipe to share with them? If so, hop over to Mag's blog.
If it DOES indeed snow, Bill can use his birthday snow blower. I could make a snow woman. Hot chocolate would taste extra festive. We might have a fire in the fireplace.
Are you still feeling the Christmas jazz? Are you tired? Do you still have lists that are demanding your check marks?
We've been reading A Christmas Carol in reading class. It's hard reading for my struggling students, but we take breaks and watch it, too. We're all pretty interested in Ebenezer Scrooge.
I hope you have a bright day today. May your tea taste extra rich and leafy and may a cookie plate be within your reach.
JOY to the world!
