Cookies, friends, and comfort

     My closest friend stopped by today to schmooze and bring us a container of Christmas cookies.  She does this every year.  I stopped baking my usual ton of cookies several years ago.  (I limit us to a few pies, brownies, and fancy loaf breads most of which I give away.)  Dear Hubby and I don’t need too many baked goods around and our dear neighbor’s kindly treat is just enough.

     Tomorrow I’ll bake my traditional pecan pie for Thursday’s dinner.  If it hadn’t been for another dear friend, I wouldn’t be doing that. 

     Christmas Eve DH and I will snuggle in with the pups and treat ourselves to a couple of new DVDs, eggnog, and pop corn.  The pups will go through their repertoire of tricks to try to beg some pop corn off us.  They’ll get some, but they’re not spoiled or anything.

     Christmas day we will sleep in late and then enjoy some fresh coffee and sweet rolls.  We don’t do gifts.  Each day we have together is gift enough for us.  The pups will get their new Nylabones, they like presents, and we wouldn’t think of depriving them.

     I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday.
