It’s hard to believe that it’s the eve of Christmas Eve. This week seems to have zipped right by. I accomplished a lot and also did nothing at the same time. Does that make sense? Probably not. But you would understand what I’m talking about if you’d lived my life the past few days. How has your week gone?
Yesterday I shared a photo of mince tarts, which some of you commented about. They are one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. And they’re homemade. Not by me. The elderly gentleman that I volunteer to look after each Wednesday...well, his wife bakes them a few times a year. When she does, she leaves some on the table for us, and her husband and I have them after our lunch. This Wednesday, not only did she put aside some for lunch, she also sent me home with a large cookie tin full of them! Yeah. Can you say OHMYFLIPPINGOSH? When I got home, I was tempted to hide them and eat them in secret. But the most amazing man in the world is worth sharing with.
If you look around the stores or online, you find some really cool, sometimes funny, items for the holidays. Take the product below, for example. You attach that label to some candy and you give it to grouchy people or people who haven’t been hit by the spirit of the season. At the very least you’ll get a smile in return. Hopefully.
And then there’s this next product. I’d love to have a Grinch plush toy! I should mention it to my family next year when they’re asking me what I want. Hey, don’t laugh. We're all weird in our own way.
I’ve talked enough, so I suppose I should wrap it up now. But before I go, here is the 1978 tune “Mary’s Boy Child” by Boney M. It is a really fun song with an upbeat tone to it. Enjoy! I’ll be back tomorrow with my Christmas eve message.
