Blogmas Day #22

Evidently my Blogmas's will be short lived as now my camera isn't working!  I have some shots but then tomorrow it will be downloads and that's it, as the camera is not cooperating at all.  Oh well, I need to visit anyway and see what everyone else is up to this holiday season.  It's raining and even though "the roof boys" were here yesterday.....they did nothing and so I am using bowls that I need for Christmas baking for catching drips instead.  Please give me patience Lord!  In spades!
Here's my lovely Pioneer Woman bowl and this is heavy too!  I was amazed at the weight of it.
   Today I've been working all day on the 2017 Collectible Ornaments.....and when I am done...I am going to make the 2018 Collectible Ornaments so I won't find myself in this position again! LOL!  Yeah right........I got no baking done at all so hopefully tomorrow?!?!?  One thing I did do was buy a frozen pizza for the next 2 nights for supper until Christmas Eve and Christmas Day when there will be plenty!
Here's my Christmas mug and for the London Fog today I  used egg nog instead of the milk.....quite the taste sensation I must say!  I left out the vanilla but still added the honey.

I really look forward to this in the afternoons with a little sweet treat of which I have to bake........
I forgot to show you this the other day.  My daughter sent this in her box of packages also......too cute.....a little red truck with the tree and it's a racer! LOL!  That girl thinks of everything!  We both love the red trucks with the trees in them. 
I hope you're getting all your holiday tasks done and enjoying them at the same time!  The candles are lit tonight and it is a cozy, rainy night here in Arkansas.  I hope you are safe and warm wherever you are and enjoying this Friday evening!
Happy Trails!!!


  1. Well. As usual you seemed to be a very busy lady today. We had a cozy evening watching Podcasts. Yes, I have Dennis hooked on some travel podcasts. We lit afire and I knitted while we watched Podcasts. And it snowed. And it snowed. And it snowed! We had a zero percent chance of snow according to the weatherman. It turned into over 3 inches over a few hours! Oh well, I just hope it stops now, because our son has to drive over three mountain passes tomorrow to get here.

    What a great idea to start your 2018 ornaments right away while the holiday spirit is still going strong. I just watched a Christmas podcast by Cece of the “geeky girls knit”. She showed how she does her journals each year. I think it might be fun to keep track of my yarn yardage for both knitting & crocheting. She also keeps track of each project she makes. That could be interesting too. Have a lovely day tomorrow my friend.
    Blessings, Betsy

  2. Oh, I pray for a safe journey for your son and I hope he has those good tires like you have! What a cozy night you had. What travel podcast do you watch? That sounds interesting. I also thank you for the Geeky Girls Knit recommendation. I too would like to journal my knitting and crocheting and I had that on my list to set up a separate notebook for handwork projects. It will be n ice to see how someone else does theirs! YOu have a wonderful day too! Hugs ~ Sam

  3. I'm glad you're all set for the holidays. I love your new dish. Sorry the roof isn't being cooperative.

    1. Well, at least it's the porch and not my bedroom! LOL! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to your lovely family!

  4. I love Winnie the Pooh! :) I can't believe you still have a leaky roof Sam, I thought they found the problem! Gosh...stay hygge in that rain! :) I love the dish, but it looks even better filled with candy canes! :) The truck is adorable. I love this time of year!

    1. Your posts have really helped make my Christmas here alone. It's like I'm talking to you daily and getting my dose of Christmas Spirit! Thanks for being such a good friend....I cherish it!
