Off the Blog:
Getting back to normal this week was hard. The house is really weird without Buttons and it’s a change I can’t seem to get used to. We got her ashes back so it is comforting to know she is home.
The weather during the week was warmer than it should be and on Saturday it snowed. I feel like I have whip lash. The snow stuck to the cars and grass more than the pavement but it was still snow that needed to be shoveled, it was way too early for snow and with the week being so warm…the weather is just so confusing.
Christmas is coming fast.
I finished all the gifts for the kids Santa is done with the presents for the kids so I now just need to focus on the other stuff. This weekend I am working on the Xmas Dinner Book to organize what I want to make and what I will need. I do the grocery shopping on line so I plan to set up a list so I can schedule the order for the Thursday before Christmas.
With everything going on the last 3 weeks, on Tuesday I came home to the most AMAZING surprise in the mail. It came at the perfect time and the person who sent it, I adore already, but she totally blew me away with what she sent me.
Lola from Lola’s Reviews sent me a box of Dutch Treats! Some of the most delicious stuff I ever eat. I LOVED everything in the box. The box included my favorite Licorice, some cookie type treats that have a gingerbread/Cinnamon taste to them and what might be now my favorite treat ever Stroop Wafels! They are so good. You can actually get them at Trader Joes (I found that out this week) So now when I am done with them I can get more instead of bothering Lola to send them to me for the rest of our lives. 😉 Once again I can’t Thank you enough for such an amazing package. She is really a wonderful friend and I am so glad I meet her through the blog. Now I need to find a way to get over to meet her in person! So I can give her a hug for sending me what might be the best surprise gift I ever got!
I am currently playing a game called Star Stable. I think I mentioned it before. It’s a game that your character has horses and you can ride them and race them for coins and experience but that isn’t all, you go on awesome quests and open areas. They have about 2 main storylines that revolve around magic and evil groups but also have a bunch of other side stories that you do. I absolutely love it. It’s also relaxing and they have great seasonal events. My daughter and I are Star Riders so we can explore the whole world of Jorvik and the graphics to the world are gorgeous, I get so lost in the game. I am also a complete dork because I love my horse. I have 11 with hopes they release some more so I can fill my stable. I can’t say enough about this game, the developers are doing such a great job keeping the game exciting and you get an update every week with new stuff. I can gush for hours about this game but no one wants to read that. 😉 Check it out if you are a gamer, it’s really a great game.
