RA Today ~ December 23

What a great day!  When I left the house at 3:30 to do my Christmas shopping (hadn’t started yet) I asked Hubby to say a prayer and he just laughed because apparently he has no sympathy for those who bring such things upon themselves.  2.5 hours later I walked in the door having completed purchasing stocking stuffers, presents (except for some gift cards), groceries and got my hair cut.  He was disgusted.  I have no right.   I still have stuff to do but other than the gift cards, nothing to buy.  Tonight and tomorrow I will finish baking and preparing the treat boxes which accompany the gift cards.  This year’s treat is chocolate drizzled popcorn in three flavours:  dark chocolate, chocolate orange and chocolate mint, each with a sprinkling of fleur de sel.

I hope Mr. Armitage has a lovely Christmas Eve, Christmas and Boxing Day with family and friends – sipping eggnog or grog, playing charades, twister, or whatever his traditions include.  And then days and days of maniacal skiing down insane slopes in the French Alps … maybe enjoying après ski in his own chalet as he wished for a few years ago.  Happy Christmas Eve day Armitage Family!

      Hehehehe … hubby had done most of the shopping for the boys. I had stockings, Hubby, nieces & nephews (they’re all getting gift cards on the popcorn treat boxes) and a few groceries … which reminds me, better make a note – we’re gonna need more flour for those cinnamon rolls …. 🙂
