I'm trying to convince myself to go out in the snow to buy some Scotch Guard for my new chairs. There was already one spill last night.

I finished the second dishwasher load and a bunch of hand dish washing. I still need to wash all the crystal glasses (8 flutes, 8 water glasses, and 2 wine glasses). I think I might do them in the dishwasher.

Nope. No more excuses GG. That should be a good workout for your KA. I used mine the other night to mix the spices into my ground turkey. It doesn't get used often enough, so I use it when I can.

Good morning everyone

Only 2 more sleeps till Christmas, I am all excited, so love Christmas

It is going to be very hot here today, 40 degrees, it is already 30 degrees at 7.20am

All good though as we have air conditioning all throughout the house

I have the sprinkler system on outside watering the entire garden right now as everything would be thirsty from yesterdays hot day and it will set them up for today too!

Have a nice day/night everyone

I finally got myself out the door, into the snow and cold. By the time I got myself motivated, it was 16h30 and the majority of stores close at 17h on a Saturday. I went to the mall that's just over a km away. I tried The (Hudson's) Bay (Company) (Canadian department store) and Sears, but neither store carries Scotch Guard. The line up to get out of the parking lot was humongous.

Then, I went to Pharmaprix (Shoppers Drug Mart in the rest of Canada). They stay open 'til midnight. They had the Scotch Guard. If I had gone there first and they hadn't had it, I wouldn't have had time to get to the mall. Pharmaprix is a block away.

I'm making chicken stock. I used up all my chicken stock yesterday. If I don't have enough liquid from the roast to make a good quantity of gravy, I want that chicken stock to top up the liquid.

It was a very enjoyable afternoon at the pool. Work is done until wednesday, Happy Dance!! Finished up 98% of the Christmas shopping today, throughly enjoying our time off. The daughter cannot believe we are all home together with nobody having to work for 4 days, very rare occasion. We will be having our Christmas eve tonight with just us. Ready to cook some fillets soon for supper.

Just got back from the store myself, found three tiny lemons (not Meyer's) so I can top my salmon and some nice asparagus.

I am sitting here in shock. Spike came with Teddy. The cake was all done and wrapped up for transportation and a picture. Spike just walked out the door with it. Didn't get a chance to take the picture. He is taking the cake to his wife's cousin for a Christmas present from the both of us. That was not what the cake was for. Well, no time to make another one. All that is left is to clean up the mess. Oh well, on to the cookies.
