Thought for the day….

Welcome to Tuesday, December 11th, 2012 ….. 13 sleeps till Christmas Eve ….. Santa comes on the 14th sleep…..


Well I wrote up a few more cards last night.

On Saturday my daughter and I are going to make the traditional “sugar cookies” and some mini cheesecakes.

Closer to the big day I will make a “fruit pizza” and that will be our dessert.

Getting a bit less traditional ….

We try and cut back on the food every year but then we find we have too much but always good for leftovers.

Do you find that when you are shopping for groceries at Christmas that you purchase everything for that day or two and then have nothing for the time just before or after?

There are always leftovers for a few days but then it seems that you spent all that money and nothing in the pantry or fridge.

It always amazes me …….

I always try and be organized and some years more so than others.

This year I am doing okay.

I think Thursday night will be “wrapping gifts” ….

Each night I plan to do one item and that way I should be ready on time.

It always works out.

Well it is snowing again here in Edmonton so my ride will be early so I should go and finish getting ready.

I hope that you are all on track for whatever celebrations you have at this time of year.

Whether you are tradition or not ….. as long as you are surrounded by the folks that you love ….. you are blessed and will have a great holiday.

Take care and have an awesome day.

Special Hello: to all my “elf friends” ….. you rock.


Always, Carol and Alvin
