Christmas Eve Traditions

I started baking at 10:00AM & the first up were mince pies....check out the rolling pin!  It turned 46 years old in November!  It was given to me on my wedding day!  One of those old english traditions!

Don't look at the ones on the plate in the back.......they are the rejects!  No problem Popster will eat them!  He'll eat anything!

I also made pumpkin pies & Nantucket Cranberry pie a recipe I got from the Pioneer Woman's site....yummo !  After that I made wraps & salads for dinner with Scott, Deidre, Jeffrie, Meghan & Jessie.  Great thing about the whole day is Popster just follows behind me doing dishes & cleaning up my mess.....gotta love that man!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
