December 6, 2013


What a joy to get out and pick up a tree! It was a wonderful experience. They are always so friendly and warm at the place we go. They even delivered it to our door! The house now officially smells like Christmas.


I seem to be really centred on food-ish-pics these days!  And here is the one and only step I could not complete last night to make dinner: opening cans!  Thankfully Jamie came to my rescue!


I got totally caught up in catching up with emails (although still not caught up) and then all of a sudden, there was no daylight left. I still put together a batch of homemade hot chocolate mix and hope the sun comes out today so I can get some nice photos of it. Would make for a great gift but mostly, well, I ran out of hot chocolate mix and I'm cheap! I wanted to see if homemade from scratch was better. And less expensive. I will let you know. I couldn't have any because I had to wait to take photos today!

I'm so curious to hear how your homemade hot chocolate mix turns out Suzie! And I totally understand getting caught by catching up on stuff, I am so in the land of that this week! I just keep going and hope I'm making progress!

Did you have a hard time with the electric can opener Shannon? They really can be quite tricky.

I'll let you know about the hot chocolate Shannon, finally photographed it yesterday but can't wait to try it.

I hope you make progress too!!!!

That was such a delicious meal, Shannon! And so awesome to come home to after getting out for the tree. It feels like this was the night the holidays began!

I'll be so curious about the hot chocolate, Suzie! And WTG about answering your email. That's awesome!

Suzie Ridler said...

Yay to having a Christmas tree and the world smelling like the holidays!

I am hoping today I get to stay home and enjoy that hot chocolate too. Been a busy weekend!

I totally can not use an electric can opener at all. I like the really big clamp down on both sides than crank with your hand style. I have one that really works for me, but it's in storage. Jamie was sweet enough to open the dinner cans for me!

And I love the pic of you with the tree Jamie! I didn't see that when I posted before.
