Louis Dean and I are getting caught up on our rest. I can tell because we are getting up earlier.
This morning after coffee and Bible reading, Louis Dean went back to bed for a nap while I made Cheese Blintzes.
I used to make these for Christmas Morning breakfast and I fully intended to make them this year....
but that didn't happen.
I found my old recipe for the crepes and made a cheese filling using cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, an egg, orange peel, vanilla and a little sugar. Apricot preserves thinned with a bit of Karo Syrup made the topping. They are really good!
We accomplished a few things today!
We had left the lights we bought on Monday in the trunk of the car.
This afternoon I organized what was left from last year and then added the new ones.
As I take down Christmas I will store ALL the lights from the trees inside and outside in here.
You can see I have some storage space left!
I was going to settle down and sew an apron that I cut out last YEAR but when I pulled open one of my sewing drawers it dawned on me what a mess they were all in!!! So I dumped all four drawers out on the floor - and organized them! Perhaps I will sew tomorrow!
Thanks to Summer and Sabrina for sharing their Christmas Vacation in Puerto Rico as well as a short stay in New York City with us. The photos are from Facebook.....
Farewell Puerto Rico....
They had an amazing time in NYC!
This will be the only way I get to see it!
So excited for them that they were able to go!
THIS is my favorite pic!!! It was really cold! But did notice Summer is wearing flip flops???
It felt just like spring here in Texas today!
Complete with Mountain Cedar in the air!
Hard to believe it is the end of December!!
I have the window units on in both the bedrooms just in case Louis Dean gets restless and goes into the guest room at some point. Sometimes just slipping into another bed can help you go to sleep.
We have been watching back to back episodes of The Alaskan Bush People.
They are reruns but still entertaining and they won't give us bad dreams.
One more and we will call it a day!!
