Camel Kisses

Howdy!   How’s everybody doing?  Have you survived Advent and the Christmas rush and madness so far?  Are your cards mailed?  How many dinners do you need to prep for , or have you already attended?  Are the gifts bought?  Wrapped?  Here I sit at the computer, it’s nearly midnight, my house looks like bomb exploded in here, and I don’t even remember what I’ve bought or for whom, let alone have it all out to wrap.  Dinner?  Thank God for my oldest daughter’s mom-in-love…   Take a minute, find a spot to relax and grab a cuppa something you like.  I’ll tell you a story, and maybe it will help brighten your day.  Continue reading

Family Matters

Hey y’all!   How is everybody?  I’m sure enjoying this cooler fall weather!  Love the jackets and fleecy things that are so soft and comfy.  Even the dog is cuddly!  So, grab a cuppa something and find a comfy spot.  Today is a dark chocolate and orange flavor hot chocolate kind of day.  Extra cocoa powder, a drop or two of orange extract and some extra sweetener, and I’m a VERY happy camper!  My grandson turns two this month.  We’ve been celebrating all weekend!
