#2 Noel comes from the Latin word Natalis.  It means "birth"

#5 Most people say that the poinsettia is native to Mexico and it is but it is also native to most of Central America. 

I had both of these in a trivia quiz that I did on line yesterday.
Just stopping by to say "Good Night Everyfriend".  I think I got a lot done today but I'll have to check it out tomorrow.  I'm too tired to think about it tonight.

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!
GLORIA, don't worry about having to beat out Frankie.  She's a sharer and she'd even bring you the last one!  All you have to do is ask!

PHYLLIS, I won't tell if you don't.  We'll just share together.  Shall we invite your son?

I just came in here to look up my recipe for hot mustard. I need to make some today....maybe.

Better get on the ball!  Sorry, AMY, I can't "put an egg in my boot..."  I need the eggs for the mustard and maybe cookies later.
Good Morning Everyfriend! We got up 15 minutes before the alarm went off this morning.  Mickie's been out and had her pill and the coffee just finished in the kitchen.  Be right back....

OK, I have my coffee and now where are my thoughts?

I just noticed a picture of Robby in the margin.  I think of him all the time.  I often wonder if he was analyzing all of us or just enjoying himself.  Either way, he sure was a special guy!

Now, where was I.  My thoughts sure are wandering this morning.  While I was in the kitchen, I started the dog food so that when the pill wait time is up, Mickie can have her breakfast.

Also, I think I might have gone to the wrong house for dinner last night.  It was a good dinner but I was expecting PHYLLIS's beef stew.  PHYLLIS, were there leftovers?  I'll be over today.  Are we having them for lunch or supper?

AMY, have a safe (and fun) trip to the city, whatever city it is!

Guess I better get moving if I want to be ready to take the trash and pick up Frankie.

I wish you all a lovely day!

AMY, I don't know about the "stretchy pants" but a Muumuu would work.  Lots of room under there!

CAROL, thanks for dinner.  That really hit the spot!  You're a good cook and even better company. 

I got all the coconut cups done today and the special bags for special people packed, labeled and in the back room with the rest of the packed stuff.  Unfortunately, after another walk with Mickie, cleaning up, the kitchen, washing all the utensils and packing them away, and washing the chocolate off everything in the kitchen, I didn't have any energy left to do anything else. I made some dinner, fed Mickie and turned on the TV.  After I ate, I don't remember what happened but the next time I looked at the clock it was 8 o'clock.  So I got into my jammies and took the rest of the night off.

GLORIA, I have about 8 coconut cups that didn't pass quality control.  If you were here, you could race my granddaughter to take them off my hands. 

Tomorrow, I have to bag the trash and get my big can ready for pickup on Friday and take the other stuff up to my son's dumpster.  After I deposit it in the dumpster, I'll pick up Frankie and Cooper-dog to come over here and "hang out" for a while.  Maybe she'll help me pack the mixed bags.  If she doesn't, I won't feed her.  Yeah, right!

I have to do some book work tomorrow, too.  Or maybe I'll sit here and do that tonight. I'm a little "wishy-washy" right now but I'll get better at thinking as I move along.

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one.

Gloria, I was looking through my little red book a few days ago and I decided that I have your old phone number unless you kept the same one when you moved.  When you get your email going again, would you clear this up for me?  Also, since you're going to be sending me a phone number, would you include an address and your son's first name?  I don't remember you ever using it on this site and it would be nice to know.

I went to church, came home and took Mickie for a nice walk.  Then I put the chocolate on to melt and I'm having another cup of coffee while I wait.  Shouldn't be too long.

GLORIA, I never heard of gumdrop fudge either until I ran across this recipe.  It was really easy to do and it's really pretty for the holidays.  I saved some of the red gumdrops to make it again for Valentine's day and some green ones for Easter....MAYBE.  The verdict is still being pondered.  No final decision.  Maybe I'll go eat a piece now and ponder some more.

CAROL, I'll be over for supper.  It sounds sooooo good!

Keep on enjoying your day, Everyfriend!  I'm off to the "salt mines"...

Just a quick "Good Morning Evryfriend" today.  I have to get my shower and get ready for church while we wait out Mickie's morning pill.  But coffee first!

JENNY, Good night and good morning to you!  An Happy Birthday to Jonah! 

I'll try to get back in later but there's lots planned for today.  I hope it all gets done and I can begin o enjoy the way to Christmas!  I really enjoy making the candy for friends and family but it sure is time consuming! 

I wish you all a lovely day!

Hi Everyfriend!  The coconut balls are all rolled and waiting in the fridge for tomorrow when they will be made into coconut cups and that's the last of the that kind of candy.  My plan for tomorrow is church first, then home to finish the candy, pack it all up that needs packing and fill the family and friends bags with goodies.  And if my energy holds out, I'll mix and refrigerate the gumdrops for cutting on Monday.  They take overnight in the fridge to get to the working point.  In the meantime, I'll change the dining room table into a real table and start getting my decorations out. 

And somewhere along the way, I'll pack my boxes for Texas and Oklahoma.  Maybe I'll even get them in the mail!  Not tomorrow, tough!

I'll let you all know how that plan works out.  Oh yes, the gumdrop fudge is pretty good.  I haven't decided if it's "more-ish" yet but we'll see.  It's certainly petty enough, though. 

I haven't even thought about baking yet but I have promised Moose Farts for Cathy's annual Christmas Eve open house.  We had some fun with them last year and I'm thinking it will be fun again this year.

I think I better take Mickie out and get myself ready for bed before I fall over.  I'm draggin' a bit tonight. 

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I've been up for a couple of hours and Mickie has had her outies, her pill, her breakfast and a nice long walk. 

I have gumdrop fudge cooling in the fridge.  Don't ask me any questions about it because this is the first time I've ever made it.  I'll let you know if it's the last time I'll ever make it.  I have the oven heaing to do peanuts for the guys.  They never say if the like them but one year I didn't make them and 2 of them said, "Hey Mom! Did you forget the peanuts?".  I told them I ran out of time but I made them every year since.  I guess guys just eat what you give them and miss it when you don't.

This afternoon I'm going to put the Christmas music on, sit down and roll coconut ball for the coconut cups.  I've put that job off as long as I can.  Now I'm telling myself to "get going" but in a much firmer tone.

I wish you all a lovely day!

One more comment on BUBBLE'S my church, the last words are "Go in peace to love and serve the Lord."  I like it!  Makes me think!

Also forgot to say...SHIRLEY, be sure to let me know what you think if you go to the AK dr.

Bubble, that was a very interesting article and I have to admit that it has changed my mind a bit when it comes to Xmas abbreviation.  However, I still prefer the full spelling of Christmas.  Maybe that's because I'm not Greek and I don't live in the 15th century and I like being reminded of the reason for Christmas.  I have seen that stylized PX thing and I've even wondered about it.  I'm going to copy your entry and take it to church with me on Sunday.  I think there are many who need to see it.

The electrician/plumber guys were here quite a while this morning and they got a lot done.  I don't think I mentioned that this is a state program designed to help seniors and disabled people stay in their homes safely for a longer time.  When I applied, I didn't think I would qualify but I did and it's great!  The guy who runs it for this county is a real gem!

I didn't get any candy done today...not even bagged because I moved everything off the kitchen counters onto the dining room table so they would have easy access to the outlets in the kitchen.  After they left and I started putting things back, I found that just staying out of the way was a tiring job.  Tomorrow, I'll get an early start! 

CAROL, enjoy your visit with your son.  And a later one with other kids.  Too bad you're missing all that Colorado snow...NOT!  I can't imagine that a snowfall in Tucson would be as confining as what is happening in Colorado!

AMY, the joys of owning our furry friends, or should I say of our furry friends owning us because they do.  I probably said this before but I told people often "My dogs own the house.  They just let me live there because I tend to their needs."  If I didn't tend, they'd throw me out and get someone who does."  They all thought it was funny but it's really true!  Sorry about your problems but like Kyle said, "You still love him, don't you?"

I guess I better get ready to hit the hay if I want to get anything done tomorrow and I'm really hoping to FINISH tomorrow.  That means doing the coconut cups and packing everything ready to give.  Wish me luck!

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm not sure if it's daylight out there yet but Mickie and I did our morning stroll and now we're waiting for the boinger for breakfast.

SHIRLEY, this should be covered by Medicare but some don't. Debra told me some don't want to be bothered with the paper work involved with Medicare and just offer you a discount instead.  Ask up front!

I'm in waiting mode this morning.  I can't get involved in anything until the electricians come and go.  I think they said they would be here by 8 am and that's pretty soon so we shall see. 

LLOYD, I've asked the doggies numerous times to rub my back but they prefer it if I rub their backs.  Most of the time there's no one to rub anything on my back but I found a roll on that I can use to reach almost anywhere.  The middle part is still elusive but I can get relief most of the way up and down my back.  And SHIRLEY's Epsom salts back treatment does the best job ever!

Guess I better check around and see f there's anything else I can clear up for the "guys" before they get here. 

I wish you all a lovey day!

Shirley, this may be the time to find the Applied Kinesiologist.  I've found, over the years that, when a medical dr says "wait it out" or wants to give me meds, Debra can help me fix it.  I don't know what's causing your neck pain but if the dr. wanted me to wait it out, I know what I'd do.

I had my session with Debra today and it was one of the best ever!  I came home feeling much better about what had been causing some of the pains.  A while back I fell on my side and today she fixed it so I can take a deep breath without wincing. 

Tomorrow, I have an electricion coming and he'll be working in the kitchen, one bathroom and one bedroom.  I've taken everything off the kitchen counter and stacked it o the dining room table so they can access the outlets.  They will all be changed because they are "not up to standard".  Maybe I won't knock out my fridge when I plug in two items in the outlet across from it.  But they're sure putting a cramp in the candy making!  I can't even bag while they're here because the table is loaded!  I have all the stuff set aside to do a major part of what's left to do after they leave but I don't know when that will be.

I'm all ready for bed but I think I'll go out and watch one episode of Home Improvement before I take Mickie out and then hit the sack.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good Morning Everyfriend!  This is just a quickie to let you know I'm up and about and ready to go this morning.  Well, that might be a bit of an exaggeration but I'm able to go.

I think Frankie needs a bit of pushing in the morning but I don't want to aggravate her by pushing too much.  She's just now getting in the shower. 

I'm going to go take Mickie for a short walk to see if she can take care of business. 

I wish you a lovely day!

Hey there all you happy people!  I'm here to say I'm joining you.  I'm going to be off to bed early this evening because I have to be on the road to the chiropractor tomorrow by 8:15 a.m.  What ever happened to that thing about retirees not HAVING to go anywhere?

CALLIE, how lucky can you get!  See what happens when you give it "one more try".  I also tried cleaning off my desk today but someone was in here when I wasn't looking and trashed it again.  They do that all the time!  If I could catch them I'd show them the door and then I'd lock it!

I got all the special cups (Rum, Mint, Raspberry) assembled today and when I get back from the dr. tomorrow, I plan on a short walk with Mickie, a short nap and a packing session.  I can't wait to get my fridge back!  Just one more big thing to do (Coconut Cups) and then I can decorate, wrap, bake and enjoy!

LLOYD! You be careful how fast you go in that scooter of yours.  You don't want to knock someone down with it.  Boy!  It sounds like you've got it made!

I'm dead tired tonight so I'm going to hit the hay early!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  If I don't get a chance to post before leaving for the dr.  please forgive me!  I'll post as soon as I can!

AMY, I have a past and current Granddog both of whom are Burnese Mountain Dogs.  And today, as I was letting Frankie out in front of her apartment, an 8 month old Bernese puppy came down the street.  He was a real sweetie and stopped to visit with us.  I took a picture and sent it to Cindy in Texas.  She's the one who owns and one owned the Bernese doggies..

I have the chocolate melting and that means I HAVE to do the assembling as soon a it finishes melting. 

Are there cookies in the Hidey Hole?  I think I'll take a peek and see.  I could eat a cookie or two right about now!  Oh, yes, there they are!  Thank you very much!

Hi again Everyfriend!  I have all the SPECIAL centers rolled and they're in the fridge waiting to be assembled. I'm hoping for later this afternoon or tonight before I cave in. 

CALLIE, sounds like you had a lovely evening with friends!  We all need that now and then.

I'm off to pick up Frankie for our grocery shopping trip.  Mine won't take long but I'm thinking hers might.  Keep on keeping on!  Later gators

Good Morning Everyfriend!  This is going to be a short one because Mickie is under the desk reminding me that it's time for her morning walk.  And I have to get dressed before I do that

We had more snow showers last night and it's laying but only in the grassy areas.  The roads are clear so my shopping trip with Frankie is still on.  I'm picking her up at 1.

Now I'm going to go get dressed and brave the cold to take Mickie for her walk and then I'm going to pack the pb cups when I get back.  One more thing done!

I wish you all a lovely day!
