Pre-Christmas '09

I love this time of year. Everyone's scurrying around and even being rather genteel when you pass. One couple I saw in Rosauer's today had a frozen turkey sitting up-right in the basket like a child strapped in, may have even had the red belt around its waist.
The sun came out today and it was beautiful. Fat squirrels are running around the yard faster than Bella can catch them, and I'm sitting enjoying my afternoon cup of coffee. Gram Jean and I made cookies this morning and then Drew shared a monster burger with me, so I think I need to be walked before eating the rest of the week. Because I plan on eating the whole week! Starting with Friday then I'll follow it up with a tasty Tuesday and nibble on Sunday. I'm excited for this week. It'll be a good one filled with presents flying through the air, as well as people and food. And as the week rolls into another week so will I, fat and happy with rosy cheeks and curly hair!
I'm making a Croissant breakfast sandwich and hashbrown casserole for b-fast one morning at Jim and Shirlee's, and may share recipes if feeling generous. ;)
I love seeing family and can't wait to play with those kids and possibly take Ruth on a date. The thought galvanizes me, maybe even enough to get my butt upstairs to pack!

Love to all and to all a good night--on Christmas that is!
and May God Bless us every one!

a wintery Sunday night

Well, I haven't written lately, so I thought I'd give a brief synopsis of the happ'nins goin on 'round here. I'm being serenaded at the moment by my husband, the smell of deliciously baked potatoes waft thru the air, the living room where I'm sitting at the moment is considerably cooler than the other living room with the lit fireplace, so I sit with a blanket wrapped around my sweater, leaving just my toes to be cold. It has considerably warmed up this weekend from the 7-15 degrees that it was last week. Now we have snow and 32 degree weather. Yesterday Drew warmed my heart with his patience as he took me shopping. Purchased a coat, jacket, long sleeves and a sweater. So now just need to warm the bottom half, but I'm good to go! and had a lot of fun ;) Today we drove around Moscow for a stint looking at houses checking out possibilities. Tomorrow I plan to go over to Drew's Grandma Jean's house to do some cleaning for her and possibly get some Christmas shopping done, only need a few more things. Now I think we are about to sit down to dinner, so toodle-oo.
