It's a stinking day here. Blustery wind, squally rain, dark and miserable. I finished the shopping yesterday, and today I'm staying in and wrapping presents under the tree with Christmas music playing. Can't think of anything better!

How about you?

Need to leave for work here in a few. Then once home again, need to finish wrapping presents and decorate some cookies. I am going to see cookies in my sleep after this week, because tomorrow and Friday is a repeat of today...Saturday is the big family cookie extravaganza.

I live an exciting life, don't I??

It is a snow day here so instead of 2 kids during the day I have 4. It's been interesting so far.. Might try to make some muffins so we can have those for snack later today.
Other than that, just surviving the day. Oh and we'll be shovelling later on. Lots of snow for today.

My usual, plus trying to wrap some gifts. The little girl I baby sit has been a monster all week, crying all the time and not wanting to nap well. I have no idea what her deal is but today is her last day and she won't come back for 1 1/2 weeks so I can just imagine how she will be when she comes back. I am not feeling well today either so that doesn't help matters.

Took the morning off to try to get some cleaning done. Will hop in the shower in a bit, then I need to stop at Target to pick up a few last minute things for our toy drive at work, then I have a meeting at one of the hospital facilities wayyyyyy far north. After that I'll swing past DH's office and trade my car for his truck, drive over to my office where we'll have the "sleigh loading" and Christmas for 42 kids at the local kids' shelter will be delivered

Tonight is an orchestra concert for DS. Then home to try to get rest of the kitchen cleaned. My parents will likely arrive on Thursday (they're driving).

Oh man. The nicest sweater that I've ever found for DH for Christmas, and I just went to wrap it and found they left the security tag on it.

oh Rosey, I HATE when that happens!!

Christmas cards are done, hurray!! I gave in and typed up a brag letter and that made it much easier DH took them to the post office this morning.

Need to get my shower and pick up cookies and grapes for Maryann's party. Then off to the school to set up and let the mayhem begin! I feel bad for Maryann - I just found out this morning that her best school friend is moving to Alaska and today is her last day

Oh no Rosey - hate it when that happens!

I slept in and am just having coffee / computer time! Need to get busy on some laundry & tidying up around here. It's a much needed stay-at-home day for me, until bowling league tonight.

Hmm.... what to have for supper {think think think}

I'm doing turkey pieces in a nut butter and paprika sauce with veggies and rice. Any use for inspiration?

Nut butter with turkey? Sounds interesting.

It's so sunny, but a fooler on how cold it actually is outside. 3 more days until Christmas break!

My plans for today:

make pb cups
finish putting together and decorating gift baskets
get Abby's gift ready for her teacher
cleaning (bathrooms, floors, and kitchen)
laundry

I melt the nut butter (almond) in olive oil and heat a little, add the paprika then wok-fry the turkey pieces in it. The water that comes out of the turkey helps it to cook. Just at the end I thicken it with some arrowroot in water to make the sauce, and add some lemon juice. It has an oriental flavour and texture. It really works.

I've made it with mustard instead of the paprika too. Just as good.

DH hasn't called to say he's leaving yet though, and it's 6:30pm. It's getting a bit late. It's his last day before his Christmas leave. I suppose he's finishing up as much as he can. Grr.

we shovelled late this afternoon. had 4 1/2 feet of snow at the end of the driveway, in the driveway there was 2-3 feet of snow, I had to clean spots so the kids could play.
They left late as roads were horrible. I sent hubby to the store to get subs for supper, I wore myself out today. Bedtime will be early tonight.

I'm wet. Still wet from 5 hours ago. The weather has been shocking today, drenching with random hail storms. At one point the cover blew half off DH's Porsche but it was hammering down so when he rang, I told him I'd wait till the squall went over. He grumbled, so I went out and pulled it back on again.

I got hit with rain and hail the size of peas, flung at 50mph. I was out for about a minute in the shelter of the side of the house. My hat was soaked through and so was my hair. MY hair! The same hair that takes 5 minutes to notice that it's wet in the power-shower! My coat was white with hail and is still dripping gently in the conservatory. Pfft.

Rosey - you are an awesome wife! I don't think I would have done that for my DH!!!

The holiday party was a success and the cookies were a hit! The other moms were very happy to help themselves to the treat Though I am so mad that I forgot to take a pic of the cookies. Maryann was inconsolable this evening. It is finally sinking in that her friend is really moving and they can't be "sisters" together at school anymore

I think I would do almost anything for him. He is my life and the better half of my soul.

to Maryann.

You're right Rosey - my DH is the most important person in my life and I would do anything he asked me to do. And Maryann is doing better this morning - still very sad, but the hysterical crying is done.
