I'm using my crock pot again today, I just threw together chicken cacciatore. It has been a huge help lately since I have been so busy getting ready for Christmas. I am going to shop til I drop again today. I hope I finish. I need to start wrapping. I have been buying gifts and shoving them in my bedroom closet. It's going to take me awhile to organize all of it and wrap everything.
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!

Dinner sounds great!!! When should we be there?

Have fun shopping again!!!!

She was holding her baby and walked a few feet away from the cart to look at something. When she turned back around the wallet was gone. She was hysterical, I felt so bad for her.
I hope you had a relaxing evening!
That's horrible. People are so desperate, especially at this time of the year.

Hey Made! Do you happen to live close to any of the Great Lakes? Do you ever get any of the Lake effect snow showers of the Lakes? I stink at geography for the most part..You are getting colder and more snow than me I think! We have a foot on the ground from last week but it has been clear since last Friday night. Of course the temps have stayed below freezing but we have not hit 0F yet. I think 7F was out lowest yesterday morning!

I give up vacation time in spring and summer so I kind of hoard it all for October and December as much as I am allowed too. Anyways Brandi has decided she wants to go back to teaching next year and she wants to teach in a private catholic school setting and she already has interviews set up in Jan. She wants the boys in preschool already...by next Fall they will be almost 2 and 3. I guess it's never too early to start educating oneself huh?(I am the prime example of the consequence of not starting at all all joking aside I hope they do good in school and I hope Brandi will like her new teaching job if she gets the position. I just can't believe we are already talking about school for them!!!
Oh I better get busy...I am sipping new peppermint tea I found at the local grocery this morning.. it has taken me forever to find this particular brand!!! I love peppermint tea!! Have a good morning everyone!

Good Luck to Brandi!!! Praying the interviews go well!!!

I'm sure the boys will do great in school!!!!

I have been snow boarding all week at Solitude Mtn Resort here in town. It's a ghost town during the week,just me and a few others on the slopes until it should start getting more crowded as the winter breaks gets closer... and with a vertical drop of 1200ft it has the best runs that I know of...I am still getting use to the resorts out here, of course they are nothing at all like the small ones back in the southeast. The ones there do an awesome job though given the warmer conditions. Right now we are 12F and suppose to get up to 25F this afternoon. We still have a foot of snow on the ground and Friday afternoon we have a slight chance of a few snow showers. By sat we are going to get up to 35F so we may see some snow melt. But no other chances in the next week except for Friday. Well I better get going. I hope everyone has a glorious day today!!!
Praying for safe travels for Brandi and the boys!

That is so awful! It's terrible when you see thay happening to people and wish you could do something to fix it for them.

It's a beautiful production with great performances! I enjoy it when the Ghost of Christmas Present tells Scrooge off. George C. Scott's interpretation of Scrooge is kinda unorthodox and unique, with his dry, humorless laughter and cold smile. I prefer other actors' characterizations, but Scott sure does look like Scrooge.

Something in that screenplay has always bothered me. Is Fan supposed to be older or younger than Ebenezer? She looks as though she could be younger, yet she refers to "our dear mother's sake"---if they had the same mother, and she died giving birth to Ebenezer (according to the dialogue), Fan must be older. The same question arises in Noel Langley's screenplay for the Alastair Sim version. Perhaps Fan is an older sister who helped to take the place of Ebenezer's deceased mother. Both go against Dickens, who portrays Fan as a very little girl. (The "died in childbirth" angle was created by Langley, not Dickens.)
