My husband gave me my favourite movie and my daughter gave me a tea cup, I am happy.
Another friend sent my Kitchen Aid to be mended and it is now enjoying life in my kitchen.

Wow...Kay and SC...that looks like a fabulous event! Hoping to hear your thoughts about it once you've attended and (hopefully) have some pics.

I grew up with horses and have fallen off more times than I can count - back when I was a young 'un and 10 feet tall and bullet proof. Jumping, saddle breaking, barrel race training...scary now to look back at all the chances I took.

I got a few nice little warm comfies - a nice big no-sew blanket, slippers, candles, a gift card for Home Depot , and there's still a late Christmas to celebrate with my older daughter and her family who live out of town. It was a wonderful Christmas, as always.

My EW and I had that model when we were married. I gave it to her in the divorce. I kinda' miss that mixer.

The most meaningful present I got for Christmas was my Grand Mother's pearls - necklaces, pins, earrings and rings. Everything else was covered with Minions, oh and a big tin rooster for the yard.

Funny story...

A couple years back, my mom gave me her father's pocket watch. The dial and case were that of a very expensive and prestigious watchmaker of the era. It wasn't running, so I took it to a friend who is a high-end jeweler with an in-house watchmaker to have it repaired. I found out that the guts of the watch were from a cheap pocket watch. It was the antique version of today's fake Rolex.

I still have it, but I'm not spending any money on it.

Craig got us the black truffle and a couple of jars of osetra caviar. We're going today to The Cheese Course to pick up a few things for a charcuterie board that we'll have with the caviar tomorrow evening, along with a flower bottle of Perier Jouet that we've had for a few years, hope it is still okay. Didn't really mean to keep it around this long, just kind of happened. I'm also assuming he gave me a virus, since he wasn't feeling too well for a few days before I got sick, that has just absolutely knocked me on my behind. At least I was able to brush my teeth and do a little bit last couple of days without feeling like I was going to keel over.

My Dad got me something I was missing re my Scandinavian cooking stuff-a waffle iron to make heart-shaped waffles. I guess he wants me to make some Norwegian waffles. He sure enjoyed the Goran.
