Life’s Simple Pleasures
Who’s excited about Santa’s arrival just a day away? Me, Me, Me! Of course it isn’t as exciting as when I was a little kid, but I am certainly looking forward to it. I think one of my favorite traditions that I miss is putting out cookies and carrots for Santa and his reindeer. I placed whatever homemade cookies that hadn’t been eaten yet on the designated “Cookies for Santa” plate along with a cold glass of milk and placed them on top of the woodstove, along with my Christmas wish list of course. Ok, get this…I did this halfway through high school. No, I didn’t still believe in Old Saint Nick, but that’s how much of a stickler I am about tradition : )
Today was rather uneventful, but I did enjoy some of my favorite eats:
Around 3:30pm, I made myself a homemade egg nog latte (with Silk and hand drip decaf coffee). I even topped it off with a dusting of nutmeg. It was a beauty, if I do say so myself.
I may have consumed a couple of cookies with this. Ugh, does anyone else feel like Cookie Monster lately?
Then after shopping for groceries with my dad for tomorrow’s feast, we picked up sushi (yes, again) at Sushi Spot. This place is hard to resist, folks : )
Tomorrow’s a busy day for me:
– run with Court & gift exchange @ Cafe Brio
– “run” to the bank
– pack for Sonoma County weekend
– cook & clean for company
– dinner @ 6:00pm!
Off to catch some zzz’s,
