Something sure smells good.....

It's one of my favorite part of Christmas......baking!

Okay, actually eating it is my favorite part but I promised myself I would be good this year. You see, I started Weight Watchers about two or so months ago and I'm a half a pound away from 20lbs lost!! Yay me!!

Now, I'm no angel so it ain't gonna be a sweet-free Christmas but I'm still trying hard to take everything in moderation because I've been working so hard at the weight loss.

After Christmas it will be time to pump up the volume and add more extensive exercising to the routine (ick, not liking that).

But as long as smelling doesn't add weight then I'm doing great LOL.

I LOVE this time of year! Everything gets so cozy because the weather outstide is sooooo cold.

We went to the kids' school's tree lighting and silent auction night. The basket got a lot of hits, I was pleased with the interest. A number of the teachers came up joking around at my 'Secret Identity' LOL.

Wishing everyone a cozy week!!

Basket of Books

The boys' school is having a Tree Lighting night and Silent Auction as a fundraiser next week. I've donated a basket with my books and some other goodies. I was so pleased with the way it turned out that I wanted to show it off! It should be interesting because I don't think anyone at the school knows I'm an author too LOL. Let's put it this way, when I emailed them to see if they accepted donations, even though I put my name, they assumed the email was from my husband and thrilled thinking his department store wanted to donate something--Yeah, kind of an awkward letter back saying sorry for the misunderstanding but just a lowly romance writer donating some Christmas romance LOL. BUT, after a laughing apology, the liasion was very interested in checking out my work and website and we all know that word-of-mouth is better than any promo event you can create!!

So, what do you think?

Winter is definitely here

I remember most of last year before Christmas was as green as the spring here....very unusual. A green Christmas is as unusual up here as a white Christmas is in California.

This year however, winter is coming in with a vengence. This is the second 'ice day' the kids have had off school (like a snow day but freezing rain instead). This after a minor blizzard yesterday. I like the snow, it can be fun but the freezing rain and ice I can do without.

Still, we did get to go sledding yesterday down our big hill in front of our house. And, since the kids are home from school today, we can dive into the Christmas boxes hubby brought down yesterday and decorate the house for the holidays!
