Hugs and Kisses....

Well, I'm finished with my Christmas shopping.  The stockings are all hung by the chimney with care.  We're having Christmas on the 18th for many reasons.  So many places to go, people being pulled in so many different directions.  And, we are going to Florida over the holiday, so any time we can get all of the people we love in the same room at the same time, it's Christmas.  My hubs will make out like a bandit this year.  I kept my ears open and bought all the things he mentioned, plus a few he didn't even know existed.  I think he'll be a happy camper this year.  Santa loves him.  My oldest grandson finally has an apartment so we got him 'grown up' stuff.  He likes to cook so we got him presents to promote that talent.  We also give money - the gift that keeps on giving.  Always appreciated, always the right size and color, not always the right amount. 

The weather has been up and down since the 1st of December - up to 60, down to 18.  We actually had a toadstool come up the 2nd of December.  Weird weather.  I would love to see about two inches of freshly fallen snow and all roads cleaned off by 11:00 a.m. on the 18th.  I'm fixing a big pot of chili so we can concentrate on prezzies.  I already have one of mine - the new Keurig coffee pot.  I'm still deciding if I like it.  I'm not crazy about the coffee my hubs bought for it - we like a relatively light coffee and these are pretty strong.  Also, it only fills 3/4s of the smallest cup we own.  Why drink two or three cups when one will do, right?  Maybe I should have asked for the Mr. Coffee Latte machine.  That sounds more up our alley.

So, here's my next Saturated Canary image.  Can't seem to get away from them.  I'm still working on my pleats, I'm just not practicing enough.
