the holidays. But I’ll let you be the judge. Here’s a picture of my Christmas tree. I wanted to post a video clip to show the lights twinkling–which I adore–but I’m technically challenged and couldn’t figure out how to get the video clip embedded (foreign techno-talk meaning cut & paste as far as I can tell).
I have decorations outside too, but Myren refused to let me take pictures of those–in the interest of security. (I know–he’s very pushy for a chauffeur, but we have this deal where he’s agreed to wear a Santa hat instead of his usual chauffeur cap until January 6th if I go easy on him. Of course, we’ve never defined exactly what that means…)
One of my favorite treats for the holidays is Egg Nog. Another favorite is peppermint & dark chocolate truffles. Another favorite is hot coco. And then there’s roasted chestnuts and this fabulously buttery recipe I have for… (Is this excessive? Am I eating too many treats?) I’m sure my doctor will mention it at my check up on Monday. I should know better than to schedule anything–good for me or not–that involves stepping on a scale at Christmas time. Guess I’ll have to suck it up and not eat any more treats until after my appointment. (Yes, I
know my appointment is tomorrow.)
I had my annual Christmas gathering of my local lady friends and we had a ball–did a Yankee swap. Everyone was too polite to swap around much. I was glad I didn’t end up with my own gift. Next time for my Yankee swap gift I’m buying chocolates. (Yes, chocolate is a recurring theme–you are not imagining it.)
Today I’m off to shop. Again. For more stuff. Mostly because I love the hustle-bustle of the holidays–and scooping up more decorations. And more chocolate treats. Myren just tooted the horn–it’s playing jingle bells and I’m running out the door to pretend we’re riding in a one-horse open sleigh.
See you when I get back! In the meantime, please share your favorite Christmas treats and if I get ten comments with shared treats, I’ll post the recipe for my extra buttery mystery treat!!
Merry Christmas and Jingle All the Way!
