Winter Break

Finally, it has arrived! I am so happy! Two weeks that I don't have to get up and go out into the cold! And the monsters are happy, too! Well, this weekend is a busy one. I have a potluck Christmas party to attend at the Legion tonight, then at noon we have to take the monsters to the kids Christmas party at the post. They have a good time and last year they each got a gift certificate for Toy's R Us!

One Monday I have some activities planned for the monsters to do. They are going to adorn oranges with cloves and decorate a gingerbread house! I'm not sure yet what I will be cooking for dinner but I am sure that it will not be anything elaborate. We will make our wishes at night and then burn the wishes in a old ashtray. Then I will take them driving around looking at all the lights! Well, that will happen after I get back from working bingo..... I know, I know I signed up for it way before I payed any attention to the date.

Also on Monday we will begin making cookies for the season. I don't think that I will be making quite as many as I usually do. I want this year to be very peaceful! And for that to happen I don't need to get all stressed out by the prep work. I need to clean and cook and bake. Most of which I can handle. But with some of the expectations that I put on myself I get frazzled. Not this year, at least I am going to make a conscious effort.

I also want to thank Mother Moon! You are a very generous person. I received your gift in the mail today. I am so touched by your kindness. I absolutely love the bracelet. And the chocolate is a great indulgence! Thank you again so much!

If I don't make it back on here before Yule. I would like to wish each and everyone one of you a Blessed Yule!!

Gotta Run,

The walking is still going very well.
