Monday is my usual meal planning post, but I am just not feeling it this week. I have a ton of food in the freezer and a good amount of produce, so whatever happens just happens. We do not do a big Christmas dinner, preferring a brunch instead. This has been a strange year and traditions are out the window, so who cares whether we eat traditional foods or try something entirely new. We will be over fed and still have fun,.
Weird Christmas song for a weird year!
Christmas sighting Day 21: I am late getting this posted because I finally baked today and forgot about this until late Monday night.
Obviously this is the mantle. I have way to many lights there but I love all of them. My den is very dark at night and I like the way it lights up this particularly dark wall. Mom made all the stockings. Mine is form my first Christmas, the she made his when we were married.. Son3 got his when he was born and I rigged Mom's stocking for DIL3. I will figure out a more permanent solution for her after Christmas.
These are my hearth critters. I like a tad of whimsy and when you squeeze the pig it forces air in which makes an oinking noise. The monkey with the fez plays cymbals, and the other monkey turns flips. The Santas just stand there looking over the room. Maybe they keep the monkeys and the pig in order. They are from some scrap wood I found.. I drew the shapes on the wood then Dad cut them for me.
