How do you get a small, black, 4 month old kitten to stop running and jumping? I'd put him in his carrier but he howls!!!! It's a lot like trying to take care of a Post OP dementia patient, only smaller...

We had a small black kitten umpteen years ago. In the apartment where we lived then, we could close doors to the bedroom, bathroom and dining room and trap her in a tiny hallway. It was the only way we could get any sleep

I should be sleeping...

I just finished watching a very interesting show on PBS. It was an episode of "Lidia Celebrates America", the Home For The Holidays episode. Lidia had six celebrities at her table, and also in individual segments, highlighting the different cultural celebrations for the Christmas season. I wouldn't mind sitting at a table with the likes of Rita Moreno, Marcus Samuelsson, and four others. It was very interesting.

If you want to see it, PBS has the video of the complete series on their website.

I saw it during the week and it was an excellent program. Each year Lydia does a Christmas Special. So worth watching. One year it was all about how her family escaped and the little room that her family lived in. How they celebrated Christmas there along with all the other refugees. Even though she touched on it this year, that year it was more in depth. That year it even touched on her first Christmas in America. Being a refugee is not fun. Not knowing if you are going to ever find a place to live? Where do you belong?

Lydia and her family really understand what it is to be grateful for coming to America. And she never forgets it.

DH made me a delicious breakfast this morning and I just finished cleaning up the kitchen. Sitting here catching up on Fb and DC, listening to Pentatonix Holiday on Pandora. It has really fun, different interpretations of Christmas music - lots of a capella, which I love.

Good looking oyster dinner, Dave!

CG, thanks for posting the link to Lidia's show - I think I'll kick back in the recliner with a cup of tea this afternoon and watch it. It's a cloudy, lazy day today.

GG, how nice of hubby to make breakfast for you.

I just put a beautiful 10 lb. pork shoulder roast in the oven to slow roast for a few hours. I usually give my bachelor brother food of some kind for Christmas, and I know he appreciates vacuum sealed bags of pulled pork. He would never bother to buy a roast and make it himself. I'll give him a couple of packages of hoagie rolls and some spiced pecans as well - he'll like that. Other than that, being lazy today!

What a thoughtful Christmas gift for your brother Cheryl! Any bachelor would be thrilled with that. So much better than a fruitcake doorstop.

That made me laugh!

The foodie gifts started about 10 years ago - he is THE most difficult person to buy for. Once I found out how easy it was to give him edible gifts and how much he appreciated them, it saved a lot of frustration. He usually gives me a Home Depot gift card, and I couldn't be happier with that!

All day I have been sitting at the computer off and on when I felt well enough to do so looking for a certain recipe for buttercream frosting. I am making a Christmas Wreath cake for my daughter and it does not require as much frosting as a layer cake. So I finally find one and then decide I don't want a buttercream frosting after all. I want a cream cheese frosting. So back to the hunt.

Now I have made frosting of both kinds many, many times. But I don't know if it is just old age or my crankiness today. But for the life of me I couldn't remember how to make either one. I find a cream cheese one that I am very familiar with. Now I think I am happy. Aha! Not so fast stupid. You also need a royal frosting. Back to the computer. Find one that requires Just Whites. Here I am thinking I don't have any on hand. Yes you do stupid. Look in the fridge and cabinet. I have a whole new can that I haven't even opened yet. I only need to make a small amount for about eight to ten small holly leaves.

I need to take a nap and get into a better mood.
