Happy Christmas Week!

Businesswoman sitting on briefcase next to arrows
It's here . . . and today is my last day to get free 2 day shipping on Amazon to get presents on time! Preparation for Christmas this year has been my sketchiest, hence my lack of time online here. In theory, I should be having a grand time (it's always fun in the blogosphere, and I do have lots to be joyful about), but for some reason, I feel like I'm just picking at surfaces of so many things and yet really accomplishing that much. Perhaps I can blame the weather -- for 85% of December, we've experienced below normal temperatures (and way too much snow, in my opinion). I'm a fair, warm weather girl, in so many ways, and this winter has gotten to me. Part of the solution is at my fingers -- I just need to be deliberate and make it a point to get out and do things I enjoy, but often I don't realize that in time and get to the point of not even knowing what I would enjoy...eh. What do you think?

On a better note, I'm baking some goodies. I'm not a cook. I'm not a baker, but I do bake a few things all right! So I'm preparing a few things for some friends . . . and the postman. I know it's courtesy to tip your newspaper person and mailman around this time, but I always figured they're just doing their job! But our postman has really gone out of his way to be helpful, especially with the packages I've been getting from reviews and giveaways. Since the boxes don't fit in our mailbox, he'll get out of his mail truck, bring the mail and boxes to the door, and actually wait for me to get the door, not like the UPS or FedEx people. I think I'll leave some goodies in the mailbox for the postman tomorrow.

Now to find a fudge recipe . . .


  1. Oh the fudge .. Let me know if you find a good recipe for peppermint bark.

    Delighted to meet you today! Hope you don't mind if I splash around to get to know you a bit more. This looks like a refreshing place to get drenched in some serious goodness.

    Have a joy filled love overflow Christmas,


  2. I'm sure your postman is absoultely going to love seeing a special something in your box this year. Hope you have a great holiday and the stress disappears soon.
