As I write this, it's Tuesday afternoon and I'm sitting on the couch with two pups and a peppermint mocha, looking at the Christmas tree covered in pretty lights.
Bug's warm little butt is snuggled next to me and she's got me thinking. Decorating is hard work. A nap sounds good.
Technically, I'm still sick and rest is the best thing. So I'll finish my peppermint mocha and nap to the sound of swish-swashing laundry, and snoozing pups.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen there's a homemade apple pie cooling and a loaf of smooch bread the first rise. More on those another day. Right now there's a Santa blanket and a big couch, calling my name.
You've got your Xmas tree up already?ReplyDelete
*shakes head and wanders away muttering*
Nothing better in the world than having a nap while snuggling with a pup or a cat.
Sure, why not? Life is short, I say enjoy the heck out of it whilst we can.Delete
I agree, they love to snuggle. Makes it hard to get up and get things done sometimes, but that's okay too.
Cheers and boogie boogie.
Crap, might as well go for the really bad news...ReplyDelete
Go snooze with the pups.
And it was a good snooze that that.Delete
Hahaha! I love the 'dear husband' note... Perfectly legit. Christmas lights rule...ReplyDelete
Decorating sure is hard work. But it's fun, too. Especially when you get the Christmas wonderland up and running.
I love when it's done and I get to sit on the couch and drink something warm and look at the lights.Delete
Do you do that? So relaxing.
Is there really any bad news associated with a game box? Yeah, you can tell I care about them, huh? Whereas my son would beg to differ. :)ReplyDelete
I can tell that you don't care about them. Which is understandable if you're not into games.Delete
We want to see the extravaganza!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your day!
Will send you photos. It's very simple but sooooo cozy.Delete
Love all the pictures on your blog. And the foods you mention. To die for.
So show us the chocolate cream pie and talk about something different! Sounds as though you have been energetic enough for a sick person, a nap is a good idea.ReplyDelete
Hey Jo - How goes the bowling today? Congrats on getting better than last week. Cheers and boogie boogie.Delete
Your tree is up?ReplyDelete
Sure, why not? Life is short so I say, enjoy, enjoy, and then enjoy some more.Delete
Love the note to your hubby!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Norma. Feels like we haven't chatted in awhile. Hope all is well on your end.Delete
Feel better soon! I'm looking forward to decorating for Christmas. And, I want that chocolate cream pie, please….ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mock Turtle. Hope all is well on your end and that no one has colds. One slice, coming up.Delete
How much trouble could that possibly cause to the xbox?ReplyDelete
I want that chocolate cream pie. Want it bad.ReplyDelete
Have you seen Holly's book? She's got a load of fun bakes in there. Yummy, too.Delete
Sounds heavenly :)ReplyDelete
It is. Relaxing and heavenly.Delete
A nap always sounds good and so does peppermint mocha.ReplyDelete
Great new cover, Susan. Hope you sell bunches and bunches.Delete
Christmas is the only time where trees go inside and lights go outReplyDelete
It's the best.Delete
Love the note !ReplyDelete
Too perfect !
Thanks, Parsnip. Just got back from your place. Great photos. Loved the Halloween sushi. And it looks like you had a great time with your friend. Very cool. Thanks for sharing the photos with us.Delete
I meant to ask... what is the crust on the cream pie. Is their a lemon one lurking somewhere ?Delete
Funny you should say lemon, I just asked my husband tonight if he wanted a lemon pie.Delete
The crust in that pie is flour, non-hydrogenated shortening, sugar and water. I'm still working out the kinks on the crust though. The filling for that pie was Holly Sinclair's chocolate filling.
Hope you are feeling better soon and I am so glad the magic of Christmas is around you keeping you cozy.ReplyDelete
Thanks Suzie. It's those lights. I tell ya, I love the glow. So pretty.Delete
