I am on vacation! The parents arrived a few hours ago. There is still cleaning and laundry sorting to do, but its much more enjoyable when people are here to keep you company. :)

I decided on Prime Rib, mash potatoes, green bean casserole, mac and cheese, biscuits and peach pie for Christmas dinner. Tonight I am making homemade chicken pot pie. I've printed off recipes for homemade pizza crust and sticky buns. Carbs anyone?

I have done some sewing. I tore into my cashmere stash and sewed up some fingerless gloves fashioned from the sleeves. They turned out nice and everyone who received them as gifts really liked them. Now I need to make a pair for myself.


  1. Hey!! You can donate blood! They used to have it that if you were there for over 2 months or whatever you couldn't, but now it's if you were there for that period of time like prior to 1990 or something. So you should be good!

  2. I personally like the bolded " killed and prepared an animal to eat" ... priceless. :)

  3. I love your blog, just added you to my favorites

  4. Good lord: are you SURE you want to watch a lightning storm from sea? Hopefully you could choose to be on an island or maybe an impossibly large ship because having spent a considerable amount of time at sea in a small sailboat, few things terrify me more than lightning storms at sea.

  5. Wow, what a great meme!! haha
    Have a great holiday with the family.

  6. Happy happy holidays to you!

    I wish you a wonderful New Year.
