After so many morning coffees in Christmas mugs, and a few weeks of doing all the Christmassy issues, you’d assume I’d be feeling all of the Christmas feels immediately. I’m unsure if it’s the hotter temps, Covid getting in the best way or what, however one thing feels off immediately and I can’t put my finger on it.
This yr we’re internet hosting a Christmas Eve dinner and doing our large Christmas with the youngsters and grandkids a couple of days after Christmas when Tess and Manuel are on the town. With Tess and Manuel nonetheless in Texas, Jake and Jordan anticipating child boy any day (any hour) and my mother and father both not comfy driving after darkish or not feeling comfy being round a big group of individuals proper now, Christmas seems completely different this yr and I’m simply realizing it I suppose.
So, we now have plans and I’m ready, however one thing simply feels……….off, completely different.
Mike had plans final evening, so I spent the night doing Chritmassy issues at residence, in an try at getting within the spirit.
I assembled this cutie so the grandkids and I can enhance it Christmas Eve.
I discovered some cute Christmas Coasters this yr and I put this one in my wine glass cupboard cuz I feel I’m humorous.
I’ve plenty of favourite Christmas motion pictures, however final evening I made a decision to attempt some new OLD motion pictures.
Mike purchased a brand new TV for the lounge AND we modified cable firms. He has but to arrange the film apps and I advised him it was superb. I inform him on a regular basis I don’t even care about TV. So……I watched two motion pictures final evening in the lounge with a fireplace going…..on my laptop computer. That’s proper. I did. In order that’s what I get for not having an opinion. Films in my lap.

This was so cute. This film was really an inspiration for the film, You’ve Bought Mail. The primary characters work collectively and don’t understand they’re exchanging love letters.

I used to be craving sweets.
Mike and I, however actually extra I, completed off the Christmas tin crammed with Chex Combine. It was wonderful.
