So I decided that instead of fighting it I'd better darn well accept it.
Once again I have a cold/flu thing. ( I never really know what to call it)
Haven't felt like doing much, so I decided to make brownies. There is something about the smell of chocolate baking, that makes it easier to lay around and do absolutely nothing. (whether one likes it or not)
You see it is my opinion that chocolate is the true cure for all of life's maladies. Even if you can't taste them (the brownies, that is) because your nose is so stuffed that even air tastes like nothing. Even if you really shouldn't have one, because they are only good with a tall cold glass of milk, and cold milk is not recommended when you have a cold as bad as mine.
So there they will sit, my plate full of brownies, waiting to be eaten, except that the only other person living in this household is not too keen on chocolate.
Well, my friends, I guess for now, I will go through my yarn stash, to figure out what my first crochet project of the year will be. And maybe that will keep my mind off the brownies that I now realize I should have never made to begin with. Does any of this make sense to you????
Have a great rest of your day everyone!!!

Today is very special because of the reason for this joyous day, whether or not our Messiah Jesus was born on this day or not is irrelevant. What counts is that we remember that the greatest gift ever given to mankind is the gift of grace and eternal life through his son Jesus.
"For G-D so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
On another note, I have another person who is very special to me who happens to have a birthday today.
This person is my wonderful and loving father. Yes, My dad was born on Christmas day eighty years ago. Words could never express how much I love this thoughtful, caring, dedidated, funny, and always there for me no matter what, man. He taught me to love, appreciate and always be thankful for even the smallest of blessings. Mr. C is one of the biggest lights of my life.
Today, He is far, and I could not be with him or the rest of my loved ones in Chicago, but I do want to dedicate a part of my Christmas post to him. I love you immensly papi!!!!
