Maybe it is because we never had any joy on the holidays last year but I am really getting excited about this year. Out daughter told me when I was down there that they would come in on Thursday night, spend Christmas Eve and most of Christmas Day with us. Just so good to hear. Jut might drag out the Christmas trees before long.
Went to the mall last Sunday and found my Chuck Taylor high tops in black and white, wanted a pink pair was told he would order them for me but when I got them who knows? Then picked up the ingredients for my now dreaded fruitcake, surprised I found the candied fruit and golden raisins. Hubby got in, brought some Subway’s, damn boy you know how to feed a girl, then settled in for some sports on the tube. OK And you have been gone and that is it. So I mixed up my fruitcake, put it in the oven and decided to become a distraction, went into the bedroom, put on my girdle, my Packers Favre jersey and my Chuck Taylors. Walked into the family room and asked him if he liked my new cheerleader outfit, damn did he ever turn that television off fast. 🥰🥰⚡️ By the way the fruitcake turned out beautiful, is now sitting in a tin, wrapped in cheesecloth, apple in the middle and with be fed rum, as well as the cook, until the cutting on Christmas Eve.
One of my favorite things about tending bar is my people, yes my regulars and my favorites the little couple who come in every Thursday, have their martinis and share a sandwich with extra chips. They told me the highlight of their week was coming in and I told them they made my week also. Told them I had made a fruitcake, they loved fruitcake and would bring them some after we cut it. Just might have to fire up the fudge factory this weekend, gettin cool time for some candy.
Oh yes she likes peanut butter, he likes chocolate. 👍👍
