I’m taking off half a day today to finish wrapping my presents (I finished my shopping weeks ago – yea!). I only have two packages to mail out to our adult kiddos. I no longer ship gifts to extended relatives, and I ask for none in return. I’m not a Scrooge. I just know that a simpler Christmas is more affordable and less stressful for everyone.
Tomorrow, the extra Christmas outdoor lights we ordered are arriving. I excitedly told Brian, “I also ordered those gutter thingies so you can decorate there, too!”
He gave me the biggest fake smile he could muster, and grunted, “Great…” Ha ha ha. Yesterday, I heard him recruiting Mason for help with the ladder light jobs. 😉
I’m also re-making my felt snow people yard decorations this year. The old ones got lost in all the moves. I’ll post pictures of those when they’re finished.
Brian will be making Rum Cheesecake, Rum Balls, and Bourbon Balls. The neighbors are going to be so happy! Brian’s balls will burn the hair off your chest!! 😉
We have one employee out sick right now. It’s not Covid. It’s that bad cold that’s apparently all over the country right now. No fever but a sore throat, fatigue, stuffy/runny nose, etc.
Everybody under our roof is fit as a fiddle right now and we’re planning to keep it that way. 😉

You have inspired me to write my own book. Just short essays on my Southern life but it’s a start.
Rum balls. Oh oh oh yesss yess.
Sigh. Too lazy to make em.
Serves me right.
So I stick with chocolate chip cookies (Ghirardelli chips mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm).
I think rum balls may be easier than cookies!! 😉
