Where Does Time Go?

Is it Tuesday already? Where does the time go? There was extra room in my freezer after the Sunday fish fry. I did cook a lot but in the overall scheme of things it hardly made a difference. Deep fried fish and hush puppies are something I only hear about in the south. Some people here fry everything. I really don't. I prefer the grill.

Today was Sam's Club day. Harry went with me today and I was certainly glad. I bought the things I buy in bulk, Kleenex, paper towels, detergent, etc. Harry was there to put the loot in the car and bring it in the house. Tomorrow I'll go to the market to buy ingredients for baking and making candy. Thursday, weather permitting, I'll be at the golf course and Friday the boys and I will make Mommy and Daddy gifts. (The Sculpey web site is a great help, Cheryl. Thanks for suggesting it.) A week from today is Christmas day. I'm so blessed to have Harry sit on the sofa with me and just enjoy being together for the day.

Does anyone have plans for New Year? We don't yet. Even though I'd like to enjoy New Year away from home I don't guess we will. We'll probably turn into pumpkins about 9 PM.

As you can tell, I'm having trouble writing. Nothing comes to mind worth sharing. So - - Good night and sweet dreams to everyone.

Hi Mary,
I am so glad you liked Armando's photography. I enjoy the pictures he takes. The crayfish is so entertaining to watch. I am glad you got to see her! We have not named her yet. I've been trying to think of a name.

I am an army brat. My Dad was in the Army for 20 years before retiring. So you worked for the Department of Defense? Did you work at the Arsenal? I bet that job was challenging and rewarding.

I agree with you about it being a good thing to learn about different countries and cultures as a child. It taught me so much and has given me a wider outlook on life.

If I get to go to Chile, I will definitely be sharing pictures with you on the blog and by email. I want you to see it. I always send pictures to my Mom and Dad, so I will send them to you also. ;)

I have a doctor's appointment on the 20th and I am going to ask her if I can go ahead and buy my plane ticket. I hope she says I can go and doesn't think I need more intensive treatments. I am trying to think positive. Either way, if I can't go, I am encouraging Armando to still go and have a good visit with his Mom and sister before he starts to work full time.

I think people fry foods waaaaaay too much in the South. I love grilled foods and especially chicken!

Good luck with your holiday baking and the gift making with the boys!

Sorry I wrote you a book in your comment box.

big hug,
Michelle

You think you have nothing to say, yet I really enjoy reading what you write.

Glad the website helped. You'll have to show pictures.
