monday monologue - christmas weekend recappage

I am thinking 
I have been 
cookie overload 
you know 
when you skimp on meals 
so you can indulge in cookies
thats how its been 
since Ruby sent 
oatmeal cookies 
the pan of fudge

I had the fudge with some Vermont Peanut Butter both chunky and almond butter

I had biscotti with my coffee

I've been home since Thursday evening literally eating myself into a sugar coma

Firday was spent doing almost nothing

I beautified
at Sam and Chris
made my recent hair cut look fabulous
at Polished Beauty Bar
painted my nails a happy holiday red

My sister came by on
for our annual combination Hanukkah Christmas gift exchange
she got Toonman a warm and wonderful Giants jacket
I got a diamond key, some yummy cashmere Portolano knits and a leather tote with many pockets
and an expandable bottom

Toonman and I did the no gift thing
again this year
tho I think I got everything I wanted
he's in great health vs the scary mess he was last year at this time
my baby Rose is improving daily
what more could I ask for?

(that's Rose soaking up love from her godmother Judy)

I asked for and got our special breakfast of eggs, onions and potatoes
usually its our New Year day breakfast tradition
however last year he was in hospital New Year's Day
so I asked him to make it for me
as a special Christmas day breakfast
he did

(by the time I took this photo there was almost nothing left)

It was so good

and for dinner?
we were going to order in pizza!
because we're Jewish
doesnt mean
we have to have
after my sister left
our friend
(and Rose's godmother)
Judy called,
she and her cousin Gary were in the neighborhood
could they pop in?
Of course

We were having a fun visit
wine was shared
along with lots of conversation
there's a knock on the door

its our Joseph and his lady Barbara

after introductions were made
Judy and Gary coated up
but not before trying to pass off a banana bread
a friend of Gary's had given him

We insisted he keep it
even tho it made a cute photo op

by the time
Joseph and Barbara left
it was way too late to order pizza
Toonman finished the potatoes
I had a peanut butter and fudge sandwich!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday no matter what you ate
thank you for tagging along
for being the swell comment leavers you are
gentle reader
you are the best!
