It’s been a day! Trouble sleeping, and a sudden sadness in the middle of the night that made me weep. Doesn’t happen often, but it sure makes you think – and pray. And after all that, warm up some milk and eggnog!
I let myself sleep in, and went to they gym late, but I had a great work-out. I switched to the elliptical for half an hour (my heel is giving me pain – no running!), did my weight circuit and some biking and stretching. Then home to do laundry and recipe collecting!
I’ve been wanting to make hot chocolate mix, but all the recipes I found had coffee whitener in them – and I don’t like that stuff! So you can imagine my delight to find a recipe for Mexican Hot Chocolate Mix.
It really does look like the picture because I “borrowed” it from the blog! And there’s also a recipe for marshmallows! I do have to make some in advance but I’ve invited my nieces over to make candied popcorn and also to help me with the mixing (20 minutes) that’s required!
Another recipe I want to try is for coffee scrubs. I’ve been saving the grounds from my morning coffee and it’s time to try this on for size. I checked a few out and this is the one I liked
But, now it’s time to eat my veggies and get on with the tasks of today – sending cards, writing a Christmas letter, and making some ornaments.
Here’s the next episode in the continuing saga of Cinnamon Bear: “Oliver Ostrich”
Have a wonderful day, preparing for the Light of the World!
