    I added Kaluha to my Chai

    • We cleaned up the mess

      Brought the meat back home to finish cooking. We had to make the dressing in a crockpot 'cause we didn't have time to put it in the bird...

      Meanwhile, my sister had no water (the water main broke to her place). She came over to make the dessert (Mississippi Mud)

      The fire didn't stop Christmas.

      We were ready, drinking wine, rum and eggnog, and waiting for our company by 5pm. They were late (my nephew's dog rolled in burrs and they had to cut the burrs out) We had 14 people here for supper. Turkey, cranberries, spiral cut ham, potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, Caesar salad (with homemade dressing - Eldest made), and olives. Dessert was shortbread, Mississippi Mud, and pie.

      I'm tired

      And I have a Christmas meal here again tomorrow.

        Even after ALL that, this is how I presented the silverware:

          • Hey, you know you really don't have to top every one's Christmas excitement, don't you?!

            Good grief, what a scare. Happy to hear it's only minor collateral damage.

            Like the cutlery bundles .

            Merry Christmas

            • Now THAT'S an exciting Christmas. I've always said, "Winencandy knows how to party!'.

              Very glad you are all okay. Peace on your household this Christmas.

              • After reading about your fire, I immediately got up, went outside and looked at my chimney!

                I have a feeling this is a Christmas you will always remember!

                    • Not all undone. Water retention and all that shit.

                      A weekend or January reset, perhaps?

                        • Thursday, while we were shopping in London, Daughter found her prom dress:



                          She was SO sweet!
                          Twirling and smiling with tears in her eyes.
                          She said YES to the dress


                          1st one she tried on
                          It fit her like it was made for her
                          Size 0 and the corset lacing in the back was drawn as tight as possible.
                          It was 1/2 price (that's a very good thing!)

                          She bought it

                          • We finally have snow.
                            We went for a walk in our backyard yesterday.
                            Here's a few photos:





                            Then we went into one of our bushes:

                              When we finally brought them in, they had ice balls on the pads of their feet. Poor babies couldn't walk on the floor!
