Twas the day before the day before Christmas, and all thru the house, the cookies are eaten, but not by a mouse. Ole Philip was up and a’ popping those kisses, while Zenah was downing the cutout blablishes.

So now I’ve decided to make the last batch of various choices that no doubt have to last. The children and friends will be arriving tomorrow and with no sweets to feed them there will be certain sorrow. I’ll hide this new batch from Philip and Zenar, I fear Jorden Baker could care less, keeps him leaner.

The dinner is planned and most shopping is done. There’ll be ham and a turkey and I need one more run. The dining room is less than ideal for a crowd, but I’ll make it work always, someway and somehow.

There’s cleaning to do that I’ve sworn to pass off. My feet are too sore and my will is a farce. I’m cooking, I’m wrapping, I’ve made such a clatter, will someone, just someone pick up the dirt matter?

It’s hot here today, a high 76, humidity’s bad, it’s not helping my schtick. I wonder how this will affect all my cookies, my ham, and my broccoli, my hair and my schnookies. I’m running out of words that will rhyme with my verse, so I must dash away, to Winn-Dixie, with nary a curse.

Some old pictures from Christmas’s past.

    Speaking of old pictures…….we just watched a video of a Christmas party I threw back in the 90’s! Yes you and Kerry were on it with the kids and Santa!
    Love the blog and merriment you send. It was 60* Christmas Eve and very nice on Christmas day! We were sweating in the house and all windows were open. It really didn’t feel like Christmas without the cold weather but it did make for great traveling for some folks.
    Hohoho! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Blessed New Year.

  7. Hi Lynn. I’m just catching up on your blogs. I really enjoyed this one….you are so witty. Looks like you had a great holiday. I feel the same way about decorating, cooking, cleaning, shopping and wrapping for Christmas. It’s a lot of work but so worth it……I love Christmas
    I’m back to work after almost two weeks off. Christmas was very busy….lots of food, family and friends. My boy turned 21 in December. I can’t believe it……my little boy is 21.
    Keep blogging my friend. I hope 2015 is even better than 2014 for you.

    I miss you.
