Holiday This and That

That's the last bite of one of my fruitcakes. I ate the whole thing. Not all at once but over a week. It was good. Very good. After the one I always gift to Son, I've still got two left. Thank goodness.

I've also made a big dent in the fancy candy.

I bought it the day I found the coffee cups I was looking for. I had to go to HomeGoods, Marshall's and TJ Max but now I have two. One for me and one for The Mister to sip our holiday brew. Ho, ho, ho.

 I also need to say a BIG thank you to Judy S. who sent me this surprise in the mail. I've been meaning to read this since it was published and now I get the chance. Thanks Judy!

 Speaking of reading, I just finished my latest in the Flavia de Luce series. It was a cozy holiday mystery that was enjoyable for the backstory but I have to admit the ending left me scratching my head. It's a whodoneit that needed a bit more whydoneit imho.

My holiday sock yarn showed up lickity split only to get tucked away for quieter times.

Right now I have more important things to do than knit socks. I've got a Santa puzzle to get together by New Year's.


  1. Enjoy your season to be jolly diversions!

  2. All GOOD things! You will really enjoy the Franklin Habit book. Savor it slowly --- one comic a day!!!! LOL

  3. SANTA puzzle. WOAH!!! Fireman would love that but the cats would absolutely destroy it. We need a virtual puzzle..hmmmmm

    1. I have to keep it covered or my kitties will undo all my hard work.

  4. ugh oh I just did a virtual puzzle !! VERY FUN. You may be in trouble for this!

  5. Great mugs. I had to go buy another fruitcake. Sadly, Dave likes them too so I have to share it. One of these years I'm going to have to try making them.
