Black Friday

And I'm at work. Work, people. Yesterday was wonderful, with the exception of not having cranberry jelly (from a can!), and none of Mom's pumpkin pie. However. I did eat more than enough of everything else! By far, the very best part, was getting to spend time with my friends. I ate out at the cabin with the R. clan. B. had been hunting with the "men-folk", and they came in to eat, and then headed back out after Bambi. I then left from there and took off for home. Dashed in, made a batch of Apple Dumplings, then took the dog for a walk. Some day, I will learn. This time, at least it wasn't skunk. Just some other wonderful dead creature that smelled almost as bad! So, I rushed her home, gave her a quick scrubbing, just in time to get the dumplings out of the oven. Dashed over the mountain to Annette's Mama's house, just before it was eating time. It was wonderful to spend time with them, even if every one was missing Sidney. From what I understand, he's now in Baghdad. Remember him, and their family in your prayers, OK?

Today we've been listening to Christmas Carols, and every so often one will come on that has someone cringing. For me, it's "I'll Be Home For Christmas", and I think it's because it's been so long since I was in my house with my family. Carrie doesn't like "Chestnut's Roasting On An Open Fire", and Stacey doesn't like the "Twelve Days of Christmas". What about you? Any particular favorites? Or any that you just can. not. stand.?

I like them all, but especially anything sung by the Carpenters. I also love Baby, It's Cold Outside, no matter who sings it.
