More holiday fun

I’m like a kid – I’ll play with the boxes and ribbons instead of the present – as proven here.


A basket of goodies came and I was all over those ribbons like a cat.  Okay, a naughty cat, but when it comes to someone holding a camera – I have to be a ham (or, a chocolate pasty stripper?!)

My son called later in the day.

Nic: The UPS man is here

(I hear Butters barking like crazy in the background)

Nic: Says ‘perishable’ – I’m openin’ it.

Me: Who’s it addressed to?

Nic: Amanda

Me: Then you’re not openin’ it

Nic: Oooo …. working on the corners

Me: Nic don’t!

He didn’t.

I play a game called Big Fish – been playing it for years.  When you’re a hermit, you still need entertainment – and it’s a free social casino type game.  Fun fun!

Anyway, I got an email a few days back saying they’d like to send me a gift.

Moi?! Ok!

Responded to email – it was legit.

Came home and opened the box – ok, Nic ended up openin’ it – and inside:




Here’s what was inside:


It was only later Nic and I had the same realization –

“Aren’t those candy apples in the news??”

We decided they meant the hard caramel/toffee kind and chocolate covered were fine.

Nic also made dinner tonight.  I’m swamped with holiday miracles!


Ok – maybe the aftermath was not such a miracle – but I decided to choose my battles – be VERY grateful for the meal (it was delicious) and do the dishes for him. 😉

Afterall, ’tis the season of giving.  Giving the chef a break. 🙂

  1. just don’t fall for “I’ll cook, if you clean”. That will bring out the cook that will use every pot, pan and utensil in the kitchen (this could include the decorative ones on the wall). Not to mention food that will be “Whisked” all over the stove, counters, walls and (sometimes) ceiling.
