What are you doing?

Watching The Sound of Music Sing Along version on ABC. They have the words printed on the screen, and you can bet I'm singing along, as is DH! I've never seen this word thing before! Great idea!

(Though I already know all the words...)

Glad I'm not Steve Harvey tonight.

If looks could kill, huh, taxy? Miss Philippines sure looked a little wary. I know I would not want to be the person who got that crown after poor Steve's faux pas.

I'm as awake as a little kid early on Christmas morn. We're ready to head to OH when we get up from sleep. Only I can't fall asleep! Haven't seen the kids for a year and I'm chomping at the bit. Knowing me, I'll fall asleep before we cross the state line into CT.

Nothing like a karaoke movie, huh Dawg? One of the theaters in Cleveland will run that movie, or some other one with subtitle lyrics, and the entire house sings along! People dress up in character, entire families have been known to come as the Von Trapps. It's like a wholesome, family version of Rocky Horror!

Wow! I wondered what you meant last night Andy. I sure feel for him, the look on his face was like a deer in the headlights.

The tear jerker lovely song, "Ill Be Home for Christmas" is going through my head for you CG!! There's nothing in the world better than being with your kids for Christmas. Christmas blessings to all of you, and travel safe.

Thanks, Kayelle. Popping in during a pit stop - we're about a third of the way there. Looks like we'll be "home" tomorrow afternoon. Meanwhile, I'M not the one taking a long time at this pit stop...

I just spent 10 - 15 minutes cozying up to Monkey trying to earn her forgiveness for letting her out and then falling asleep for three hours before letting her back in! She was cold, wet and hungry but survived the ordeal quite well. A few tummy rubs, ear scratches and dinner seemed to do the trick!

I am now hoping to go make another batch of shortbread with a twist! I made sugar cookies with royal for the kids this year in the shape of sweaters and decorated to look like "Ugly Christmas Sweaters"! The children in two units in our building don't eat eggs so I had to come up with a different combo for these kids. They are all so cute (6 in total but you have to give to the parents too, right? LOL).

So, I am making a standard shortbread recipe and instead of using royal icing I am trying a basic water and icing sugar glaze, and having it set up a little on the hard side. I will decorate with edible felt pens and I have some decorations that are totally safe!

At the same time, I am making nut clusters for TB that have cashews and dark chocolate rather than the peanut/chocolate chip/butterscotch chip recipe I use for my regular ones. If there is time before he gets home, I might make some pepita brittle for yours truly!

What are you doing?

One of our dear friends who lives in another state got a girlfriend a couple years ago. We just met her a few days ago, and thankfully for him, DH and I approve of her.

We all went out tonight and had a lovely time, even though we were all dead-tired.
