Hubby asked me if I was planning to go out today. Nah, heck I may not make it out of my pajamas. I am toasty warm, the coffee seems so tasty today and I just want to nest. I am happiest when I am home bound, with baking in the future and some more wrapping. I went out with husband to Target this week and went a bit crazy. We had fun running all over the store finding little things for our girls. But now I have more wrapping to do.
My youngest and I have been having some fun together this season. I have always been of the notion, that the Christmas Season is to be celebrated all month long. Not just waiting for the 25th to come. So since she has been on her own, (her guy is on tour in Australia and her sister is traveling for business) I try to leave her a surprise at her house each week to make her smile. It has been fun to come up with things to surprise and delight her. A toy advent calendar, her favorite cookies, a stack of vintage Christmas records (mine from when I was a kid) and her favorite donuts. She loved everything and I loved spreading some joy. Her fella is back tonight, my job is complete. :)
Now my youngest has a marvelous sense of humor and is very clever. We were having a conversation recently where I voiced the fact that I do not like receiving photo cards with no hand written message on them. Just one of my pet peeves, I find them very impersonal and too easy. I guess if someone is sending me a card, I want a little effort there. I understand why folks like to use them, but I just do not like them. Soooooooo, my youngest staged a pic with her cat and each day this week, guess what I received? A photo card with NO hand written message....LOL Oh my, how I laughed. I couldn't believe it and it tickled me to no end. She's a keeper!
Well, I have sat here long enough. Those sugar cookies will not make themselves. Off I go, but first I must find a football game on the tube. :) Always, Kit
