My Favorite Week Of The Year


Hello, friends!
We are snuggled in, pretending it isn't fifty-three degrees, and savoring every last moment of these cozy Christmas days. We are playing new games, eating yummy cookies, drinking Christmas teas and cocoas, and watching old favorite shows. We ventured out to mass and to our annual Christmas pizza party at my bestest sister Margie and her husband Chris' house. Some of my people went to work but came home after for more cozy fun.

I hope you all had lovely, memorable Christmas celebrations with your loved ones. Do you have any New Year's plans? We will attend mass on New Year's Eve, followed by a special steak dinner, prepared by Steve! Then everyone will humor me with my traditional party hats and noisemakers. New Year's Day is quiet here, with Steve's annual pork and sauerkraut dinner and our Twilight Zone marathon. We are something else, aren't we?!

Have a wonderful celebration of the new year!
Be back soon!
