Today's Act was an easy one and one I enjoyed doing. Our mail carrier, Becky, is a lovely lady. She's so friendly and kind. When Millie was born she and Cathy, the post mistress, both came over to have a look at her! She leaves candy for the kids on Valentine's day AND ON THEIR BIRTHDAYS!! (How does she know it's their birthday?!) .. so to give her a little surprise was a no brainer for me! I'd cooked up another batch of fudge ( oh fudge how we love thee! ) and put it into a pretty bag and then into a nice dish. That along with a greetings card and a small Christmas tip was tucked with the mail into our mail box. A little something extra for her on her rounds this morning!
The rest of the day was spend fuddling around. Sometimes it's hard to get moving on a Monday following the sloth of Sunday. Today was one of those days! I had a lot to do, and got only a little done. Never mind. Progress is progress, right?? :D I got the beds stripped, changed and washed, I ordered a BUNCH of Christmas gifts online, I made dinner (boxed Mac and Cheese... shhhh!!) which the heathens scarfed like I never feed them! Believe me if I'd slaved for hours in the kitchen over some exotic gourmet dinner ( or heck, something with more than one pan...!) you can bet they'd have turned up their noses at it! But box Mac and Cheese ( albeit G/F ) was a DELIGHT! Two whole boxes, three kids... **blink and you missed it!!**
So there ya have it! Tonight it's blowing a freezing gale but none of the promised snow. I really would enjoy just a little of it, just to make it feel a little more seasonal. Hubby has offered to do the dishes if I wanted an early night... DO I want an EARLY NIGHT?!!? Heck yeah! So at 8:30 at night Millie and I are headed up the apples and pears! (I hope to read a little in bed, SUCH a treat!)
Catch y'all on the flip side!!
