October 29, 2011

I forgot about my blog until today... I am not exactly sure why none of my photo's are showing any longer... Not exactly sure how to go about fixing that.

I am sitting here this wonderful Saturday evening being very thankful that the snow that people in other parts of the east coast are getting, hasn't reached here. Well not yet that is. Don't know if it will but if it does, I hope we don't get much. From the damage that I have seen from posts friends have put on line, we don't need the heavy snow here. Many of my trees still have their leaves and I don't want to see the trees damaged.

So I sit here all snug and warm in my kitchen, being thankful for such a good day, drinking what has to be the best hot chocolate in the world. There may be something better, but I haven't found it yet. The container states "there is a big difference between hot chocolate and hot cocoa"... They are so right! This hot chocolate was a Christmas gift from my sister in law two Christmases ago. I only have it every so often as a special treat to myself. I'm almost ashamed to say that I haven't really shared it. A sip or two maybe.... I have about one cup left and will have to make the trip to the store that sells it!

The weekend goes by so quickly. I feel like I never get enough done. But today I didn't feel like I had to do much. I went grocery shopping and made dinner. I did manage to get a couple loads of laundry done, well almost done. One needs to be folded and one needs to be dried.
As I am drinking my hot chocolate, I am nibbling on pop corn that we popped from a cob of corn. The kids got a kick out of watching it pop off the cob. I am actually surprised that it worked. We picked it up over the summer at a little produce stand that is near by. We purchased two since if it did work, I wanted to be able to do it again with the boys. Next time I need to add way more butter than I did this time. They are complaining that there wasn't enough butter.... trying to be healthy with little kids doesn't work sometimes.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! I love that holiday... It has been my favorite for many, many years. Not sure what we will be doing this year. I have had it here at our home for the past few years. Invited family and shared the day. Then comes what the kids are ready for... Christmas! We had a bit of snow the other day and my youngest came home from school excited for the snow since to him, snow ='s Christmas... He was laughing and yelling that it is Christmas.... Not quite there buddy! I have Thanksgiving and 3 birthdays before Christmas arrives. And lets not rush it, I don't have the few things that I am making for a few people finished just yet. I have gotten two things done though! I am ahead of the game this year. Have even started shopping.

Well I guess I should share the computer, my husband has been very patient with me. I have been a slight computer hog this evening. So until next time....
