The fire in the fireplace is burning, all the Christmas lights are lit, I said, 'To hell with the sweet dough!' and almost forgot to bake the pie that I am to bring to dinner later on. The piles from Santa are out, the stockings stuffed. (I will not do another load of laundry until Christmas is over!) Mom-mom made marinade with shrimp for dinner - - she just whips it right up! We ate too many cookies and a lovely antipasto, and lots of shrimp cocktail. Whatever can't get done WON'T get done! That is more than okay.
God bless you and Merry Christmas. God bless America.
