OH look at the calendar… Christmas is getting closer, the mall parking lots are becoming much harder to park in and more lights are on houses. wooot.
I saw a commercial for an upcoming T.V. special, the question was asked… How many Christmas lights are enough… the answer was something like… don’t quote me…. six hundred thousand four hundred and thirty two.
now I am sure this isn’t the house in question
That is enough it seems, six hundred thousand four hundred and thirty two.
eeeps, isn’t that about forty five too many?
Perhaps it was this house?
Do they use those strings where when one light goes out they all do? So you have to wiggle all the bulbs to find the one that is not working and then the string comes back on? But if two lights are loose it is much harder to sort out…. I mean virtually impossible…. What dumbo invented those strings of lights and why do they still sell them? I mean really, that makes as much sense as those handy pull tabs you find under the ketchup bottle that never pulls off so you have to cut it out anyway and then you have ketchup all over your hands…. arghhh.
That is as bad as the other day, when I decided to check the scent of a hand cream in a store, I opened the handy spout on the bottle and gave it a tiny squeeze to see what it smelled like, we don’t like a lot of perfume in the house, Megan has asthma, it is not fair to see her choke up over smelly scents, well the gentle squeeze caused the hand cream to shoot straight up and collect on my nose. Where were those handy pull tabs then?!?!? At least my nose was moist, so were Aimee’s eyes as she really teared up…. laughing. I mean really. sheish. She didn’t want to smell it, I offered, I held the bottle closer to her, but she said she would defer to my judgement as she backed away….
Going to shopping malls is such fun now, you don’t have to even go in to have a good time. Just walking up to a car with your keys out, you know a car that has an amazing parking space.. right by the doors to the mall…. then watching all of the circling cars zoom over, some even bumping into each other as they jostle for position… horns honking, the drivers trying to play the pretty sounds of jingle bells….uhm…. and then you smack your forehead like you forgot something and go back into the store…. People like a bit of levity as they try to park, to you know, to lighten their day….
what? it is good to have a hobby.
I found a cute santa cookie/candy jar yesterday when shuffling things around at home. So now I need to stop at the bulk food store on the way home to buy some candy to fill it with. I would put cookies in it, we did a lot of Christmas baking, but it would empty too quickly, then it would be a cookie crumb jar… ugh.
He always looks happy to see me!
I like the bulk food store, they have a lot of candy. Now I need to plan what to buy, which is best, mint, cinnamon, chocolate, combinations of all… licorice, well that is a given but they can go in a separate container…
But some of the candies are very pretty, they need to be on display.
They won’t get dusty either *nodding wisely*
I have to check costco again too, to see if they have the institutional size of the lindor chocolates. You know, the round ones with the centers that are always so yummy.
We defiantly need a very large box of them, they are a house favourite. Sometimes we even let company have one, then we put them away…. *nods wisely again*
We want to do some more Christmas baking this weekend, mostly because it is fun, then we can box up a nice assortment of cookies and take them around visiting. People let us in their houses when we show up with cookies.
Ho Ho OH?
