Sorry about my ratty looking nails, but this morning I was basking in gratefulness because my nose works and Cuties smell like the height of Christmas, don't they? It's my favorite scent!
My mama's gift to us bought new sheets. The discount store didn't have any flannel so the nice helper there pointed me to the fleece sheets. I kept waking up all night thinking, "This snuggly bed is pure luxury!" We sleep with the window open because I like a cold head and a warm body! Ha!
Christmas brings additional red to go with our spots. When Sam and Plum saw the tree they immediately moved in close and began messing with the shiny stuff. That is just fine with me. I like our tree to be alluring and delightful.
Our realtor who sold us this house 23 years ago still brings us a poinsettia every Christmas. So nice!
I met a friend at Starbucks yesterday. Before she arrived, I listened to all the coffee-breakers conversations, but when my nice friend was across the table, I didn't hear any other talk but hers. I absolutely love coffee talk and this particular friend is the nicest person, so real and true (and smiley!)
Miss Bug and Birdie went ice skating yesterday. Isn't that a fun holiday activity?
Sam and Millie played here. They roared around the yard, basking in the sunshine. The neighbor grands came over and everyone was pretty happy! I do love it when the house is full of kids and moms, there are snacks enjoyed constantly and love flows. LOVE it.
I have been savoring the food I've been eating. Recently I bought a nice piece of cold salmon and a tiny portion of pasta salad at the grocery. It tasted divine. Another thing I've been loving lately is ramen noodles! Ha! So salty and yummy. I LOVE eggs cooked for one minute in the microwave. I adore graham crackers. Some days hot chocolate makes me feel like a queen. What do you love?
Even though the weather is so hospitable and not nippy like holiday weather often is, I am very happy that December is here.
Thank you for popping by and reading my rambling words. You're a peach!
