No Dreams of a White Christmas

Well, another Christmas has come and gone. But it was good. The prime rib roast came out great! So did the apple cobbler. Those were the only 2 things I made with my own hands. Everything else was pre-packaged. I even made a video of the whole thing. I treated myself to a bit of a Christmas goodie. I got this for myself...

hehehe! Isn't it wonderful??! Now, I can go to sleep at night cuddling up to my 2 most favorite pics of Michael. Yeah, I know! I'm pathetic. But I do love this new pillow. Not only do I get to cuddle up to my 2 favorite pics of Michael, but the pillow it's self is so comfortable!! Nice and poofy and soft! Katrina told me she loves her gift too. I sent her this picture...

It's Chris Cornell. I love this kind of art, so I figured she'd like it too. LOL! Funny that! She told me she loves it. So, this Christmas was good enough for everyone. But the one thing we don't get is snow. I've never seen a white Christmas. Not even the one year I lived in Bozeman. Living in Washington, I've seen it snow the day after Christmas. I've seen it snow the day before Christmas, and be totally melted by Christmas morning. I've seen snow every other day in December, but never on the 25th. So, I'm beginning to think Bing Crosby was full of shit!! He lived in LA. I don't even know how he could dream of a white Christmas!

When I lived in Bozeman, I fully expected there to be snow on Christmas morning. Or at least some time during the day. But no. I saw none. It was surely cold enough to snow, pretty much like it is today. There wasn't a speck of snow on the ground when I lived in Bozeman. It wasn't until after I left that it finally snowed on Christmas. How do you like that???

Well, someone was supposed to come and get me and have me spend today with them. But they never showed up. Of course I didn't expect them to. They were close friends with the one of my home teachers from church who is currently angry with me. I was going to ask him what happened, but I never even saw him at church last Sunday. Oh well. It's just as well, I couldn't have visited them anyway. She was supposed to come at 1 PM. By that time, I was just beginning on the apple cobbler, and the roast was still simmering in the oven. So, it's just as well she didn't show up. But I sure did like her.

Well, no matter what, I still had a great day today. I enjoyed myself. And I got a wonderful gift from me, to me. That's good enough. And I discovered a new hobby this year that I can work on. I still want to use my laser engraver to make cool little trinkets.
