Christmas in review

Christmas was a good day. There was a roast chicken and one step son and one happy kid who got a new scooter. Bob got stemless wine glasses, because he keeps knocking over regular stemmed ones. I got cooking stuff: The Cooking Light cook book, a mandoline, and a chopping thing. We watched more Christmas specials this week than I ever knew possible. Someone is decidedly obsessed with Santa. That is not a bad thing.

It is a whopping 17 degrees today, at noon. It was warmer at 6am. We are not leaving the house. Well, Bob is, to show some houses to this client he has been working with. But Cooper and I are staying put.

Me, Christmas Day

It looks like you had a very happy merry.

It's nice and chilly here too. I like it, but I'm still not going anywhere today because I am SOOOOO lazy.

New reader here and enjoying myself immensely. LOVED the picture of your son outside on the scooter. So cute! Regarding the mandolin you received for Christmas? (the kitchen tool, not the instrument, right?) I just lopped off the top of my right index finger with one on Christmas Eve. I was too excited to try it out and didn't see the gadget they included to HOLD the potato for you while you sliced. Yeah. And my husband had the nerve to ask where the piece of my finger went while we were eating dinner. (how the heck do I know? I was bleeding to death in the bathroom and calling out "I'm fine!" whenever anyone asked how I was!
