Merry Christmas and Peace on Earth

A cold wintery, sunny Christmas Eve.  Duke Boy in the kitchen getting our Christmas Eve supper ready.  I have the table set--my job-- and I've made cherry, orange, nut butter.  UMM.  Now gotta type up our menus.  Part of the tradition.  The Hedgies will be here with Queen Elizabeth.  We'll go to church and then come home to a fabulous meal.

Post from 12/22/13 that disappeared and is now back??

Dex and I are enjoying the breeze on the porch.  Air was still earlier --74 in the house.  We keep our heat on 70--yes, it was warm outside.  Stormy weather is coming.  Little BW has already burrowed in the blankie on the couch. 

Speaking of burrowing.   Double N has a blankie for his spot under the porch. Double N is in love.  Might be his first blankie--whoa--big whistle of wind just blew through Dex.  Double N just came by for her morning petting.  Trying to teach her not to pick my screens---aauuuggghhh!

Christmas is right down the street, no longer around the corner. Queen Elizabeth and I went to the mall.  Actually we were dropped off.  Duke Boy grocery shopped while the Q and

Hooping and hollering on the Hooch for a minute

The last day of November sure went out like a tiger...I thought it was March that did that??That's about all I'm gonna say about that part of my day.  Most of you probably know I'm not a very good fan anyhow...today though I watched almost the entire game.  I certainly didn't go anywhere in the second half.  Queen Elizabeth even watched most of the last quarter.  It was easy to explain to someone who knows even less than me about football. Duke Boy was sad but he was happy earlier in the day about his other team--previously only known for their basketball team.  Go Duke! 

Have a lovely Sunday.  Go to church and thank God for your win or thank him for your patience until next year. 

Peace from the Hooch.  Do some Christmas shopping at Bluffton Antiques in Lanett, AL.
