Santa's Claus and Claws have been here with lots of stuff for all three of my sons and for the household's Boss. Her stuff started a few months ago. My gosh, there is a huge leaf and lawn bag..one of those big dark green ones filled to overflowing in there, the spare room, a regular sized paper shopping bag full up..wait..two of those are full and..two stand alone..no three stand alone bags and/ or boxes too. There will be more to come. That's just from me and the boy's Dad. They'll be here and bring their gifts too. The boys love lotsa things. That hasn't changed just because their adults. :-) ♥♥♥
Meanwhile, I'm beginning to get a little Christmas spirit. I haven't gotten any decorations of any sort whatever up and won't until the 22nd. (the cat).
Meanwhile I am still staying strictly away from candy/cake/pie and so on. My tea cookies are the German made butter ones. 6 for 110c. This is about a month now I think. I do need to ramp up my protein intake though.
JennyD, SO glad you all liked the dinner. Sis, you made it more to your liking with soy sauce. I hope it was something you enjoyed eating. It is so easy to do I will make it yet again for the only son who hasn't tried it yet. He'll be here late on the 22nd.
It was 8 degrees F when I got up this morning and will plunge again from the 20 degrees it managed to make it up to. Ice on the less traveled roads and so school was out these two days. Freezing rain up next tomorrow night. Sigh. I went out and got food for me and her. We're set. Boy am I glad I don't smoke any more. I always used to smoke outside long before that became what you HAD to do. I did that so the kids didn't have to smell and suffer with cigarette smoke plus the trapped odor in a house is atrocious.
I couldn't sleep in that smell and thanked goodness my home was fresh smelling though I got wet and cold standing outside as well as hot and sweaty. :-) All over for the past going on 5 years.
