Twas the day before the day before Christmas Eve
I dressed for work this morning in Scott's elf outfit, complete with curled toe shoes, and elf hat. I must say I looked smashing. LOL
It wasn't busy, so after I did payroll and went to the bank, I came home at 11:30. I like days like that! :-)
It's softly raining. I like that. It would be better if we would get some cold weather for Christmas, but I don't think it's gonna happen. It's 80 degrees right now, and the temperature would have to drop drastically. But rain is good. The grass is freshly mowed and the smell of grass and rain is nice.
I got a card from Paula Deen! For those of you who don't know, Paula Deen owns some restaurants in Savannah, GA, and has some cooking shows on TV. A very southern lady. I mailed her a copy of the cookbook I had printed of my mother's recipes, and she sent me a thank you card. How sweet is that?
I got my Chinese Chews made last night, and let me tell you, they are good! I took some to work today, and they didn't last long.
I helped Scott put together some fruit salad for a family get-together tomorrow at my neice, Kathy's house. My sisters are coming from out of state/town, and they and my brother and various family members will be there. It will be the first time all 4 of us have been together since my Mom passed away in 2001. We'll have a great time, I'm sure.
So, it may be a few days before you hear from me again. Have a Merry Christmas!
