Please pardon my late post. I was just having too much fun decorating for the holidays. I had Pandora blasting the Christmas tunes and a cup of hot Candy Cane Lane tea in hand. I worked up a sweat climbing up and down the stairs into the attic bringing down the precious boxes that had collected dust since last year. Decorating for Christmas has been a beloved activity of mine since I was a little girl. I can remember staying up into the late hours of the night with my mom putting each ornament in exactly the right place on our freshly cut Silver Tip tree. We usually sipped egg nog and had Daffy and Donald Duck singing Christmas songs – I think that’s still my favorite Christmas CD to this day : )
I’m glad I (finally) got around to warming up the house with a few festive decorations. I am excited for my dad to cut down our tree next weekend with the rest of the fam. It really isn’t Christmas without the refreshing scent of pine from a twinkling tree.
Anyway, to the eats…
Lunch was Thanksgiving leftovers: round 2.
After folding laundry, a coffee visit with a girlfriend, and an errand with my mom, I made dinner for the ‘rents:
- romaine & butter lettuces
- organic black beans
- cheddar cheese
- red onion
- chipotle-lime (low-fat) ranch
- flax seed tortilla chips
It’s been a truly wonderful week at home. I’m anxious for the next couple weeks of final papers and exams to fly by, so I can continue to enjoy “the most wonderful time of the year”.
Warm wishes to you and yours,
