And if she DOES get a parachute, you’d have to be wary of an aerial assault! (Whew!)
“Snow” is a four-letter word. I hate, loathe and despise every single flake of it.
Not even the Alastair Sim version? That’s a classic Christmas event for us.
P.S. May your Christmas(es) be merry and bright! It helps to know SOMEONE is enjoying it!
We won’t have a tree this year, if I have any say in the matter. It’s stored in Husband’s workshop below the main living level of the house, that has no direct entrance to the shop from the main part of the house. The bagged tree is probably on a high shelf. Husband hasn’t been well — vertigo, so getting up on a ladder is out of the question for him. I’m not too fond of it either. There are the four or five boxes of decorations to deal with, too. With only the two of us, it’s just not worth my effort, anymore. When you’re 78 and 80, you tucker out a lot faster than you used to. (May even have to do without the front door wreath; as I recall, it’s on the highest shelf of all, of course!).
I did, at least, decorate the railing from the main level of the house to the upstairs level I’m on right now, with a wreath and garland on the handrail. That will just have to do. Since our bedroom is on the main level, we’ll be able to see the garland any time we come out. There’s enough cooking, housekeeping and bookkeeping to keep me busy; I don’t need to pile on any more extra chores that could be dispensed with. No grown children to call on, nor will I ask help from the neighbors; they have their own list of must-dos. Makes me sound like the Grinch, doesn’t it? And that pretty well describes my attitude toward Christmas this year.
Apologies to all for the downer I’ve just unloaded on you. Really!!!
Best wishes for your and Hubby’s birthdays to be totally wonderful!
Only 58?? You young whippersnapper! I’m 78 and Dearest Husband is 80. You got a way to go, and it can be really great!
You really ought to make that the Official name of an inaccurately-followed recipe!
Pretty terrifying thought, isn’t it?
