this was in consideration
 for our holiday card
 it ended up being scratched
 in round 3
being not seasonal enough
 we went with a snow shot of the park
taken several winters ago
 the judges agreed
 it was definitely seasonal

I just ate 
this amazing cookie
 looked like biscotti 
with a semi soft chocolate with bits of nuts in the center 

I have decided
 I dont care
 I am going to eat cookies
 I love cookies
 the last two weeks of December
my yearly cookie binge

 I have pants
 that are for this time of year 
my closet 

organized by color
 with a sub section for leg zippers
there's the group
 way to the back
 the ones
 that come out
they're higher rise
 so no muffin top!

 they are worn 
with loose tops
 I tucked 

 I am sure
 the snap

  the zipper 

on its own

 I dont look at the scale til January 3
so pass me another cookie!

Have a feeling you could eat as much as you want and not gain weight. After all, you practically walk as much as you work and sleep!

After losing 30 pounds this past year, I'm eating as much as I want this Christmas!

You two stay warm this weekend! Brrrrrrrr! xoxox

In pipeline engineering terms I want to avoid exceeding 100% SMYS of my jeans ("Specified Minimum Yield Stress")

Madge Bloom said...

Oh yes, stretchy jeans and cookies... me too!

As healthy as I try to be most of the year, I too scrub that idea in December. I adore cookies and am not going to say no to them at Christmas parties we attend..... Just not happening.

I have been wanting to bake something for the holiday season, but have been talking myself out of it. I guess I should at least make one batch of cookies....or fudge....or something.

You crack me up.

Ha ha! I'm a candy eater, but that's gone now. I bought all kinds to put in the Christmas stockings I always send our grown sons, and since both will be in Brooklyn this year, I packed a box full. They aren't really candy-eaters, but I put in three big packages of beef jerky. They'll love that! My daily exercise of the 2-mile walking video is on hiatus, but I know I can't put it off too long!

Lisa Gordon said...

You make me laugh! Eat away, my friend. I will live vicariously through you!

Stephen Hayes said...

Robin said...

I'm with you, cookies, goodies, eggnog, love it all!

Elastic waist..?? Gah!

I loved your card--thank you.

Deck the halls with rows of biscotti,
fa la la la la, la la, la, la.
'Tis the season to be naughty,
fa la la la la, la la, la, la.

I can see why this was in card consideration. I love it for a lot of reasons. Yeah, I just don't worry about food during the end of December -- what's the point when it's time to celebrate? Happy, happy holidays to you.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Oh I hear you about the cookie thing, except for me its trifle, I don't know why but Christmas seems to produce trifle galore, cream custard..yum but like you from the 1st Jan, it's going to be 'my body is a temple' again haha!

GailO said...

That's my philosophy towards holiday eating too...for these two weeks I celebrate without guilt...

Lili said...

Yay cookies!! I love them so. xo
