Last Friday Fragments of 2012
~ This is my last frag for 2012...I'm taking next week off to enjoy my family. We'll be with all of the boys...all week long! Plus a girlfriend. I won't know how to act with a girl around for so long!
~ The shopping is done, the presents are wrapped. I even put some under the tree. I was afraid Laika would tear into them, but she's been an angel. She went over and sniffed them at first, but a firm "NO" was all it took. She hasn't been around them since then.
~ CH asked me what I wanted for Christmas. Besides a decent phone (I'm using a "dumb phone" right now...my old droid kicked the bucket over Thanksgiving weekend.), I told him there isn't anything I want. I'm a "giver" this time of year. I love baking/making things and giving them away. I'm perfectly content to sit back and watch the boys open their gifts. I have all of my boys home for one more Christmas...what else could I want/need?
~ Cut-out cookies: who makes them? I have never been able to get mine to turn out right. Either they get messed up going to the pan or coming out of the pan. Or, they lose their shape while they're baking (I know...that's when I roll them out too thick.). I used to make the spritz cookies from Pampered Chef and use the cookie press, but I think the press is broken. I have enough junk to make on the agenda, so I don't think they'll be missed.
~ It's 7:30 a.m. I love this time of day. It's quiet, the sun hasn't come up yet, and I have the tree lights on. And, I'm the only one up after taking the dogs out. Very peaceful.
~ I hope everybody has a very Merry Christmas! Stay safe, and enjoy the season! See you next year!
