We'll see.

Merry Christmas!

With love,

Addie, doesn't Staples have free shipping over a certain amount? Here in Canada it's for purchases over $45 and they do their own delivery.

Mine has a Christmas scene with a Golden Retriever puppy on it.
I'm almost done with the white/salted and the buttered

Thanks. It came around 3:30.
I'm not really sure where the delay was. It arrived to the center 6:30, but didn't get scanned onto the truck until right before noon.
And at 9:30 or so I found two packages from UPS on my porch. He must have really been running late, but those were regular delivery. Gotta feel sorry for the drivers being Christmas Eve and all.

My BIL works for FEDEX. They grind their drivers into the ground. They are understaffed and forced to work long hours. At the end of the day he literally has to drag himself up the stairs into his home.

I seem to have come down with something: sniffling, a bad cough, a headache, and my upper lungs hurt. I hope those painkillers take away that headache soon.

I have to do something about all that meat I thawed for the tourtière. I'm going to make the filling, cook it, and refrigerate it. I am taking it easy and doing this in little steps. I won't bother making the crust today. Right now I'm soaking some potatoes so I can scrub all the mud off of them. They go in the tourtière.

If I don't feel more energetic by the day after tomorrow, I'll reheat the filling and then freeze it. Heck, maybe I should just freeze it today.

Gee, I don't know. Spike is doing the research and ordering. I will mention it to him.

Cook it, freeze and then off to bed with you. Get some sleep before you get super sick.

Oh man Taxy. Sorry to hear your not feeling well. Between you and LP. I woke up yesterday with a raging head cold myself. Mrs D dragged me off to the health food store and got me some oil of oregano. I mist say I feel quite a bit better today. I hope Stirling is feeling better.
