What am I doing? Well, been up since 0530 and working since 0800 until 1600 (4pm). The joys of working in law enforcement, eh?

Going to SIL's for dinner and Christmas after work. DW is there already.

Texasgirl, I know what you mean about the decorations. I'm tired of looking at mine too and cannot wait to get stuff put away and toss my tree.

BigDog, sorry to hear that you have to work today but I hope you enjoy your dinner at SIL's house.

Christmas is winding down. We are tired and are still watching 'A Christmas Story'. Love that movie.

Jean Shepherd was one of the best storytellers of all time.

Willl pick up a book and think about a snooze.

Am not working tomorrow, thank goodness, so am enjoying a glass of Merlot.

Wishing you all a relaxing, and peaceful, end of the long Christmas day.

The house is starting to smell good from the food in the crockpot (it should be ready at 7:00), and we are watching "Eight Below." It is gray and rainy outside today, but I kind of like it like that sometimes.

Monkey bread: 3 cans of the large biscuits cut into quarters. Roll biscuits in 1 cup white sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon. Generously grease a fluted or bundt pan. Put a layer of pecans in the bottom of the pan and then gently layer sugar coated biscuits into the pan. In sauepan melt 1 1/2 sticks of butter, add the leftover sugar/cinnamon mixture and add 3/4 C of brown sugar. Bring this just to a boil and pour it over the biscuits. Bake at 350 degrees for approx 30-35 min.
Allow to cool for 5 min and then invert onto a plate. The bread pulls apart into bite size pieces. My family loves it. Hope yours does too.

Right now, I am trying to stay awake to catch up with some posting and catching back up with my favorite e-community, DC. This month has been H E double hockey sticks...I am glad it is over. My only regret is that every year, by the time the Holiday is here, I am about Holidayed out, and am ready to hide...missed you all!

Asides from that, I am enjoying the first day off this month with a great glass of Bookers bourbon and gonna eat some leftovers soon.
