No Agenda

Rick finished up his column this morning and we decided to do our grocery shopping and the last of our Christmas shopping.  It was pouring rain, 40 degrees with bitter wind straight out of the north and we didn't care.  We had a great time, we drank hot peppermint mocha coffees from Joe Mugs while we shopped for gifts.  We took the long way home.  Though we got a great deal accomplished, there was really no agenda.

This evening, I made hot cider and we watched The Shop Around the Corner . Today was one of the least stressful days I have experienced in weeks.  Tonight, we did our gratitude ceremony and celebrated the Winter Solstice.  We were hopeful about the full moon tonight, but the clouds still cover the skies, maybe tomorrow night we will see moonlight.

The very last card was mailed today.  A couple of presents wrapped, more tomorrow and then I start working on cookie dough  for Christmas Eve.  My brother Ricky's grandkids come over after breakfast on Christmas Eve and make Christmas cookies, their parents did it when they were kids.  I hope this is one tradition that will continue, they are really good cookies.

December 21, only a few days until Christmas, only a few days left in 2018.  May we all experience joy in our hearts tomorrow, may  we all be kind.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


    Hugs, Julia

  2. What a wonderful tradition, baking cookies with nieces and nephews. I'm sure it will be a day filled with laughter and smiles for all. Happy Saturday!

  3. Sounds like a nice day was had, I am not a cider drinker to me it is yuck.
