Happy Birthday Kenny

To My Brother who will not be reading this .


I wonder how it was the have a Birthday so close to Christmas.
The Eve ,the Day , the day after anywhere of the week of .
Disappointing I would think , SO PARENTS plan your child not the week of Christmas.
UNLESS..... it perhaps was Christmas Day!!
Double celebration!
Who wouldn't not want to share that day with Jesus. I know the day is not certain but the idea is the same.

I woke with a HEADACHE this am. perhaps because I went out side yesterday several times without my head covered. Or perhaps because I had not drank enough water .
I should be drinking 90 + ounces, Ahem....... since I have gotten to the weigh double that number. Lack of water can cause headache and dry eyes , remember that!

After 3 cups of Joe and 2 mayo sausage biscuits and a min carrot cake,my headache is gone.

I truly am enjoying this am, off work ,a big relief and I can do or not do anything. So far I have been reading my new magazine BEST HOLIDAY
RECIPES from Taste of Home. Pictures of every recipe (course it make one want to try them all and perhaps once day(I doubt it) I will have made all 320 Christmas classics!
I simple love Taste of Home magazines YOU can get a free issue by going to:
www.tasteofhome.comfreeissue or call 1-800-344-6913 and mention
Some time you can get this mag. at 1/2 rate, like I did.

Well this am was all quiet,when I settle down with my Joe and bkfst: but I hear this rattle of tin foil and not to my surprise I saw a little long thin mouse,poor thing he was probably after the carrot cake I had previously placed in the microwave. I guess I should of let him or her had it.

Well I leaving my Christmas up until at the New Year comes in.
WHY not!?
If anyone know how I can get bright white lights to replace MRS Stewart's smoked-burned out ones let me know. I think it is a 600 lighted tree- I might as well buy a NEW ONE .. it'll cost 70 dollars to replace the bulbs!!

I do want to thank my family for the wonderful presents we both got. "THANK YOU, Anna,John,Jeff and Jennifer and to my sisters and friends.

So until next time ,May God continue to bless, YOU and YOURS!

It's Christmas Day is IT?

Merry Christmas !!

It's Christmas Day is it?

That is the words of my 4 tear old son'
twenty two years ago.
A 4 year old is a magical little person.
They are curious,charming and loving.
Full of adventure; all sorts of wisdom is
being absorbed in their minds.

I got up as t 0215 this AM , not to wrap
or open presents, but to put the turkey
in the oven. Simple ... right.. Well the
turkey needs to cook about 3-4 hours and
my cake need to be baked. Therefore the cake
had to be mixed then and get in ahead of the turkey.

You just can't throw the turkey in, well some
person might do that but the giblets would be
cooked in it wrapped paper and it would not be
Anyhow,I need to clean chop celery,onion and
an apple and stuff the bird with that with a
stick of butter. Once that little "stuff" was
done I slid the bird into the baking bag and
roasting pan and placed on the bottom rack on
top of my round stone (so the bottom of the
turkey would not burn.

Then on to preparing the cake to make it that
wonderful tasty.
I could have snuck back as to bed but I thought
Mike has to work and He would love his wonderful
Mayo's sausage, so I had to remove the turkey from
the oven cook some biscuits (canned) and sausage etc,
then returning the turkey I think it was 4 AM.

I recheck the icing recipe, and decided to use the
one that added pineapple to the top of the sheet cake
and using sour cream,confection sugar and cool whip.

YUM,was on the spoon!

By 4:30 Mike would be up so I had to wish him a
Merry Christmas and sip some Christmas coffee with him.
Now I am sleepy,tired and need to rise and meet the day...........
but I think , all would be well if I sleep in at least til 8 AM.Hum I can smell the turkey it smells "Christmasy"

Have a "MERRY CHRISTMAS" today.

December 2008

Actually today felt like a December day. \
I received a call approx 715 from Jennifer
my daughter in law) that her car was
having some serious problems
she had parked it at a veterinarian office.
It was still under warranty ,Jeff took it to
the Toyota dealership on his lunch break.
They found the problem and fixed it. Yay!

Warranties are good.

I decided since I was out to go to a
walk in clinic to determine the cause
of my pain,and swelling of my left foot.
I was told it was not fractured but that
it did show osteoarthritis.

I continue later
