Good morning Manuel, and those to come. The sun is just coming up here in Texas. Our temp is once again about to change. We are going from Heat to cool and rainy. The rain is very much needed, as we have red flag warnings out everywhere.

I am so proud of myself. I did so much of the cleaning yesterday. Today I start cooking. It will take me several days, so I want to get started early. I hope to have very little to do on Christmas day.

The shopping is done, so I am ready for Vhristmas. I did want to get out to the cemetary, but might wait until next week.

I hope all of you have a very good day. Those traveling, please be careful.

Luanne

Good Morning CruiseMates!
Well it's almost time for the man in the red suit to pop by and eat my cookies.
Yesterday ended up being a bit crazy. Got a call from the church secretary who was having technology issues putting the Christmas Eve and Sunday program together, so the hubby and I helped her worked them out and it was finally resolved about 5 p.m. last night. I recently found out that I am rumored to be our churches new Music Director. I ran into the current Music Director earlier in the week and she wanted to know what my plans for the choir were, and I just kind of stared at her trying to understand what she meant and then said huh? She said that the latest word on the street was that I was going to be taking over directing the choir and all of that... I really was speechless and I told her point blank that was not in any of my short or long range plans, I would do anything possible to help or support the music program but being in charge of it was not something I have ever taken an interest in that whatsoever! I had to sit down and think what on earth I might have ever said to spark this sort of a rumor. I really am drawing a blank. I really think there must be a handful of really bored women who have nothing better to do than just sit around and manufacture gossip, since the truth is so boring lol.

The kids got their Christmas presents from their Grandparents last night. The gifts were a huge hit. They actually ended up staying quite a while and the kiddos had a nice visit with them. We got the Grandparents a digital picture frame loaded with a boatload of photos. They always want pictures but never get around to printing them out.

I finally used the last of the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving I had in the freezer to make a big pot of soup. It was a big hit last night. I only have about a quart left. I have the other turkey thawed out and ready to roast on Christmas and plenty leftover ham from Thanksgiving still in the freezer. I am thinking about some stuffing, a couple of side dishes, mashed taties and gravy, some beef house rolls and a couple of simple desserts. Just a simple meal, so we can enjoy the day together and I don't miss out on the fun because I am busy cooking in the kitchen.

We're supposed to get more snow over the next few days. Today it is really foggy. The hubby is working from home today and tomorrow and will be off all next week. So looks like we'll have some good family time together. Life is good!

Hope you all have a great day!

I wish I could bake today, buit what I am doing is best made tomorrow, so, I may do some painting. I started in the hallway,and stopped there too

Make it a good one.

Good morning
Off to get my hair cut shortly and then to physical therapy. I finished all the baking last night and at this point I donít ever want to look at another cookie. I made oatmeal w/ white choc, dark choc and cranberry cookies. Sugar cookie cut outs, choc chip & oatmeal choc& raisin cookies. I normally make Kolachay cookies but didnít feel up to it, maybe after the New Year.
Hope all is well with everyone, have a blessed day.

Hello Everybody

I hope everyone is safe and warm.

We are beginning to thaw out - we might reach the dizzy heights of -10C.

You are so right BW - some people - and not always women - have to generate news and gossip where there is none.

Christmas preparation is done and dusted (has been for 1 month) that I have finished one of my brothers and one of my sisters (she is housebound because of the weather).

The shortest day has now gone - so we are looking forward to Spring.

Anyway back to the baking - shortbread, black bun for Hogmany - but at least that is fun!

Have a good day everyone!

Annie

Good morning all. Nice to read about all of your Christmas preparations and plans. The food sounds so yummy.

We will be having a wonderful Christmas dinner at my Niece's new home. There will be a lot of people there so getting a chance to get my hands on their beautiful little girl will be a challenge, but it will be fun anyway.

Trying to stay well right now. I'll see a doctor at the Mayo clinic on Tuesday to see if I can get any more help with the problems I've been dealing with that are the results of past surgeries.

Take Care everyone and God Bless.
Phyll

Good Morning cruisemates! Phyll, so sorry to hear you are having health issues. Hope the docs at Mayo are able to find a quick remedy for you.


We had some of the CA rain system move through Scottsdale last night. For some reason I find it odd to have a thunder storm in the dessert. But today the skies are supposed to begin clearing and heading back into the 70s.

Yesterday I washed the floors in the morning, then did quite a wide circuit through the city, running errands. Today, I am free and clear, with pretty much nothing on my to do list, and I can do that chore very well.

Good morning from the sunny but cold south.

Finished the shopping and wrapping. Last night Jim put a "Hummer" together for my daughter. He loves putting the grandkids power toys together. Will have to deliver it late Christmas Eve, hope the snow does not get here.

Just have to bake a German Chocolate cake and about 1 million sausage balls.

Have a great day
Brenda

I sure hope it's just the Internet that RD has lost and not ALL the power. Losing power is a pain anytime but horrendous at this time of year and in those temperatures. Hope we hear from her soon!
