Wrapping up the week ♥

Hello Friends! As I type this post it's Sunday morning and I am propped up in my bed, cozy under a blanket, and pillows all around me.  I'm on my second cup of coffee. It seems to be working it's caffeine magic enough for me to write this post : ) 

I can see the sun is shining.  Yesterday we had torrential rain!  A good portion of our state got snow, but not us.  Just rain and wind.  John and I went out in the morning to do a few quick errands and we got soaked. It was OK though, because it made the peppermint mocha I got at Dunkin Donuts taste that much better.  

John had 3 DVD's due at the library and I wanted to recheck a book I'm reading.  We are lucky that our library is still open, although the way things are going I'm afraid it's days are numbered.  I finished all my Christmas shopping yesterday also! Wooo-hoo!!! Most of it was done online (thank you AMAZON!) but there were a few small items that I had to go to Target for.  We were quick - in and out - and I'm so glad it's done.  Now all I have to do is wrap and ship a few things.  Packages are starting to arrive at my doorstep and what a feeling that is!  How lucky are we to have online shopping.  Our grandmothers would never have imagined it! 

A few things from my week that have brought me joy...

This book is sooooo good! Lately I've been so tired that if I try to read at night I fall asleep, so I'm trying to make time during the day to read.  20 minutes here, 15 minutes there.  I love it.  I'm always wanting more.  

Putting my hot chocolate station to good use.  Melty marshmallows are the best. 

This lotion is divine!  I have it by my computer while I'm working.  I'm applying it all day to my extremely DRY hands.  The scent is Christmas in a bottle. 

Here's a pro tip.  If you are too lazy to make a crust for your chicken pot pie, use Pillsbury Grands!  
Cut each one into quarters and layer them on top.  Cook at 375 for 15-20 minutes.  


Did you see the moon this week?  

She was a beauty~ 

Me forcing him to take a selfie.  I'm smiling under my mask.  I guarantee he was not. LOL 

Christmas baking has begun! On Friday I whipped up a batch of raspberry thumbprint cookies.  They are one of my favorite holiday treats.  I have a video on my YouTube channel that I made last year of me making them if you want to check it out.  They are very easy to make! 

A perfect little tea cookie 

And speaking of tea, my new obsession is  Twining's Winter Spice.  

Every night 

If I ever get out of this warm bed I'm going to make another batch of thumbprints and maybe some sugar cookies.  I have a busy work week ahead so I'll need some extra reinforcements....if you know what I mean!  It's ok, the diet doesn't start until January. 

 I need more coffee and I see a pile of laundry that needs to be done.  I have so much to do but no motivation to do it. Just 5 more minutes....

Have a cozy Sunday everyone!  xoxo
