Happy Christmas

By: palmettobug53 , 3:22 AM GMT on December 23, 2012

I would like to wish everyone here on WU a happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

I believe it was Shore who told me about this video last year. It's loads of fun and Christmas-y, to boot! I have watched it a dozen times and still can't get enough.

If you have seen a holiday or seasonal vid you like, please share the joy.

Hi Bug, did you get spared the worse of the wet and stormy weather? I hope you were able to have a pleasant Christmas. I brought lots of cooked turkey back form my aunt's, so I shall be having leek and turkey pie and turkey curry for the next few days! lol

Talking of food, I have left the recipe blog in the archives for a while... I usually delete all blogs as I do a new one, but have left the recipe blog, as you suggested, for a week or two.

Happy BOXING day! (Or St Stephen's day if you prefer!)

Bug ~ When you get a chance, you might enjoy a blog belonging to a woman who's got ten acres and three cows in Cornwall. It's called The Thinking Cowgirl and it provides such marvels as old-fashioned herefords wearing tinsel halos and a step-by-step for real mince tarts, beginning with mutton. You can have a peek. It's custom made for an Anglophile. ;)

Hi, Mass.

I cooked a big ham Sunday, so no meat to cook today. I fixed a salad and have baked mac and cheese in the oven now. We eat late on Christmas day. Hubby said he really didn't want any more than that. I was happy to oblige. We have rolls and desserts.

I sat up WAY too long last night (1:00 am)and I could do with a nap right about now. Got sucked into a movie last night, while reading a book. Had no idea it had gotten as late as it had. Hubby had been in bed since around 8:00. Even after getting in bed, it took me a while to get to sleep. I'm paying for it now.

I don't think I'll last too long tonight! lol

Like you. this Christmas morn, I'm caught multi-tasking between posting on my computer and cooking in the kitchen. No rest for the weary...eh? I think I'll be giving myself the gift of a nice long nap later this afternoon. ZZZzzzz! LOL! Hope you can pace yourself as well! ENJOY!

Good morning and Happy Christmas!

Santa was very nice to us this year. I hope he was good to all of you.

I'm just doing a quick check in, before heading to the kitchen to get some things started for our Christmas dinner.

Evening, Bug,

I've got the lyrics posted over on my blog. In between each verse there are multiple "hallelujahs", but they're pretty easy to figure out.

I'm just laughing at those flat filing cabinets. Carolyn and I got out and went over to her house today, and omg - she has more flat filing cabinets than anyone in the world. She's a little Scarlett O'Hara-ish, in that she's given to fluttering her fingers and saying, "Oh, fiddle-dee-dee - I'll deal with that tomorrow." Well, tomorrow's here, and there's a lot to deal with before they clear her to go home. It'll get done.

I have the answer to your egg nog connundrum - maybe. I buy mine from Promised Land Dairy. They have an all-Jersey herd outside San Antonio. It's hormone free, etc. etc. I always buy their nog - it's the best. And around here, they sell it in individual serving sizes!

Well. As it turns out, they sell their products around Charleston! The Harris Teeter out on Folly Road carries them, for one. And there are other Harris Teeters and an Earth Fare. I put in 29401 for the zip - you can go here and enter your zip code and go from there.
Good gosh - helping someone on the other side of the country find egg nog. Ain't technology sumpin'?

I brought along a little greeting for you - lots of good wishes, and a little Christmas nostalgia. ;)

Hi, Rob.

Most of my cooking skills were picked up from watching and helping Mama, my aunts, my grandmothers and other female friends and relatives as I was growing up. It's the best cooking school there is. It's also just as much a social event, as it is cooking. Lots of talking about family history, family gossip, household/cooking hints, reminiscing about times gone by and talk about what everyone is doing now.

Thanks for enlightening me about egging. I knew it had to be something like that but wasn't sure what. From watching food/cooking shows, I know urchin roe is considered a delicacy, as are the urchins, themselves.

Hubby got home a little while ago. He didn't stay long. He put his jacket back on and said, "I'll be back in a while." I suspect he still hasn't done any shopping.

I wish him luck with finding anything and dealing with the traffic and crowds. He hates both and I expect he'll be grumpy when he gets back.

MERRY CHRISTMAS Bugs, from a still cool and windy Bay of Fundy. Glad to hear things are well in your part of the world.

I am at the office, kitchen in full commence at home, best I stay a distance, works best for the both of us. Emily learning from the Master for these feasts, a great chance for them to talk over the important things in Emily's world. She is indeed changing into a young person with thoughts and desires of her own, just getting them to fruition the challenge.

Egging local term for dragging for Sea Urchins, the roe is a delicacy in Asia, in particular Japan. The quality in our waters is high, market is good. The eggs are shipped to Portland, Me, for the most part. They are either shipped whole or roe removed and shipped overseas.

Again have a MERRY CHRISTMAS, all the BEST IN 2013.

Good morning and happy Christmas Eve, everyone?

Thank the Good Lord I'm not the only one with flat filing cabinets! Well, I knew I wasn't the only one; the phrase is not my own. I don't remember where I read it. Some humor article, somewhere. It was one of those things that immediately struck a chord.

Shore, I'd love to have the lyrics to kd's song. I'd watch it again and try to blend the lyrics and vid by lip reading. I can do that fairly well, anyway, with watching TV with the captions.

Karen, I had to smile at that picture of Trucker in the basket. Almost every cat I've seen immediately gets into anything put on the floor: cardboard box, paper bag, baskets. Because everything IS theirs!

Ylee, the ham was great. I've got enough for an army, too. After we ate, I sliced on that thing and sliced and sliced and sliced. I filled up one large covered container to put in the fridge. Still have a huge chunk of ham and bone wrapped in aluminum foil on the top shelf. Anything not eaten by Wed night will be wrapped in portions and put in the freezer.

My 200th blog? Where did you see that? Are there banners waving and horns tootling somewhere?

Sandi, that's a lovely picture of you ornaments on the tree. I see something familiar! lol

GG, happy Christmas to you, Sid, Roxy and the rest of the family!

BTW, any imbibing I do will be done safely at home, most likely in my jammies.

I wish I did have some eggnog. Hubby won't drink it, even spiked. I've never seen a container smaller than a quart. I'd never drink a whole quart of eggnog. Seems a bit wasteful to buy one, fix just one or two drinks and wind up pouring the rest down the drain.

Still have a bit of picking up and sorting, putting away to do. Hubby's gift is locked in my truck. I won't bring that in until tomorrow morning. He is notorious for ripping into his presents early. Irks me to no end. You wait for everyone and we all open them together.

I have one or two small errands to run today. Nothing big. For two weeks, I've been forgetting ground pepper every single time I went to the grocer. Hubby is grumbling. He doesn't like the 'grind your own' container of pepper, which is all I have left.

I thought I might pop in to TJ Maxx and Barnes and Noble. Browse around, see what they have. Maybe pick up a last minute item or two, if something catches my eye.

Though both stores are within walking distance, I'll drive over, after going to the dollar store for pepper. I am not crossing that intersection on foot. 6 lanes all four ways? In this traffic? With all the panicked, last minute Christmas Eve shoppers?

I don't think so.

I often have a flat filing cabinet on top of my regular filing cabinet! :) Bills, receipts, and other assorted papers, mail and whatnot that has to be dealt with at some point!

How was the ham?

Hiya Bug ~

I'd share a vid if I knew of one, but I really don't visit YouTube that often. Most of the cute videos I see are posted by friends on FB! LOL

My desk had a pretty good flat filing cabinet system going until yesterday. I made it my goal to get a lot of it cleaned off. I did pretty good! The last few weeks have been busy ones, and it's been too easy to pile things up. But it was getting to me. The problem, is that its started all over again! LOL

I know what you mean about work stuff. I brought home my 5th grade baskets so I could catch up with some grading. The students have filled out a State Research paper, contributed both text and images to our Wiki, and conducted a website evaluation. I just never seem to have the time at work to look at student work, so I brought it home. It took me 3 hours, but I got all of 5th grade done!

Here is a picture of the baskets as well as Trucker, sitting in one of the baskets....as if he is going to help me! Ha! I posted this on FB and my daughter's response was: Of course, because everything is his....

Just a quick note - I did a search and many, many of the "Hallelujah" lyrics aren't the ones sung by k.d.lang. I'll find her lyrics and copy them for you. Some of the church groups and such have turned them into a sweet little song that's not nearly as powerful as her version. Be back with that later. ;)

Shore, there's no point in asking Uncle Google about those flat filing cabinets of mine.

A flat filing cabinet is any flat surface that attracts stuff. Stuff that really doesn't belong there and needs to be used, put where it does belong or thrown away.

Things have just gotten a bit cluttered here lately, due to the back issues, just being flat out too tired to mess with it while I was on my feet (Ah'll worry about it tomorrah) or nodding out in my chair almost immediately after I sat down. I got a good bit of it cleared up today.

It's probably a good idea to go visit your friend tomorrow, with nasty weather pending.

They did that with my cousin, before she left rehab. Toured the house, indicated what changes needed to be made before they'd release her.

Well - I came over to chat and now I'm trying to figure out what a flat filing cabinet is. Do you mean like an acordian file? I'm bemused - and you're probably amused by this point that I don't know what you're talking about. ;)

I laughed when you asked how cold it got last night. How does 65 sound? And it got well up into the 70s. It's supposed to do that tomorrow, too, until the warm front heads north and the cold front heads south (well, southeast I guess) and we get a very exciting Christmas morning. I certainly hope it just does its thing and gets out of here.

I'm going to make a run up to Houston tomorrow, just in case the weather's too bad for me to go on Christmas. We decided today that we'll not even think about getting a four-hour pass, as once the rain is gone we're going to have wind, and there's just no need to tempt fate by taking a still handicapped person out into that stuff.

She's doing awfully well, though. I suspect she'll be medically ready for discharge before her house is ready for her to come home. There's this little to-do list that has to be taken care of. One step at a time!

I've still got the windows open and am listening to the night birds. Good gosh. I have a fear it's going to be one of "those" winters, when things just swing back and forth, and we never get the good rain we need. We'll see!

Sandi! I rather figured you would be up early. You very seldom sleep in.

Since I'm not at work today, the stress levels are fine. I have to admit that, after I got into the bed last night, some work related thoughts started swimming through my mind. I determinedly moved them into another direction and fell asleep shortly thereafter.

The back is much better, though I sometimes still feel a few twinges when I first get up. I feel sure that the initial back strain was just compounded at work by my vision issues vis-a-vis the placement of my keyboard and monitors. Now that I have my glasses, I'm doing much better.

BF, hi! I've been seeing that train chugging around WU. Very festive.

I have no plans to leave the house today. I've got another load of clothes in the wash now. I will get my ham in the oven around noon. (We eat late on Sundays.) Will do a little picking up and straightening up.

Does anyone besides me have 'flat' filing cabinets?

I'm second!

How are you feeling, are the back and stress levels both behaving?

Ok, so I am awake and ready to face the day. Since the op, I seem to need even less sleep and awaken each day before five. I seem to have five and a half or six hours and then wake up...full of the joys of spring and ready to get on with the day! What happened to sleeping until daybreak! Mind you, if it was June and not December, it would be day break right now!

Have a relaxing Sunday :-)
