Two More Sleeps

It sure doesn't feel as though Christmas is two days away!! I think I'm just about ready....a few more groceries and I think I'm done.  I guess I'd better be done!  Every year at this time I think about how I need to plan ahead and make my gifts more meaningful.  I will get thinking this year about what the recipients of my gifts really need and work towards that.  My friend Kim did just that.  She sent me a gift which was very thoughtful and one she couldn't just run out and buy last minute!  She made me a cookbook of her favorite recipes as well as a few from some other ladies I know.  Then she put it together with pictures of family that I had posted to Facebook.  I teared up when I opened it.  Kim knew I had lost my cookbooks in the flood......
So I hope to be 'that' giver next year and make my gift giving more thoughtful.  

'Tis the season for eggnog.  Every year I buy it and then usually throw it out.  This year I'm having a glass in the morning......YUMMO!  I forgot how good it is!!!  I buy the light so it's not as thick....I remember adding milk to the regular eggnog before.  A little sprinkle of nutmeg....mmmmmm!

We are currently having a brown Christmas.  They are forecasting some snow tomorrow and maybe Christmas Day...we will see as weather can change in the blink of an eye around here.  This was a picture taken on my drive home the other day.  No snow in sight!

The older I get the more I don't mind brown Christmases but I'm wondering if that's why it doesn't seem to be almost here!!!!!  

After writing that last post about Facebook I got thinking about what I expect from it.  What would we write about if we didn't post our vacation pictures or pictures of our loved ones because I do care about those things from the people I care about.  So I guess that's the key for me.....unfollow the people whose status updates I scroll over and leave only the ones I will read!  Simple right????  Soon it will be busy with everyone wishing everyone a Merry Christmas......I send cards!  Hahahaha!!  But incase you didn't get a card from me, I'm taking this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for a wonderful 2015!!!!!!
