Hi Everyone!

Welcome to our new decade!

By any chance do you know the name of your decade? It depends on your age. Are you in your 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, etc. Mine is Septuagenarian = 70 to 79. I bet you thought I was going to give you my actual age.
If you want to know yours you can find the information at LearnersDictionary.com

Have a great day! Hope

Scrooge

Hi Everyone!

Can you imagine walking down the street saying bah! Humbug? undefined
Bah! Humbug? Bah! Humbug to you all!!!!I don’t care if you are young or old, all I can say is Bah! Humbug! to you all!!!!

Yes I can hear those words! And of course the curious person I am, would ask them “Why do you say those words?” So many people out there feel the world owes them something. I’ve always wonder what.
Some answers you might hear are:
Money,
Jewels,
Mansion,
Yacht,
Stocks & Bonds.

WOW!

To me, you should be happy with what you have. You may not have much, but that’s okay. If you have your health, love from others, you give your love to others, have that beautiful smile on your face, look at the world through the eyes of a child, you realize you have the world on your side.

The holidays are almost here and before you know it, they will be gone. So let’s be positive, turn that frown upside down to a smile.

You know it’s better to have smile wrinkles than frown ones.

Have a great day! Hope

Stocking Stuffers

Hi Everyone!

This is the holiday season where you are going from store to store in a mall or several malls.
Or you are going from store to store on the internet.

Of course we are always looking for the best deal! Right? Right! So you start your shopping with items picked out. You have already brought them home or waiting for your package to be delivered.

And then! The refrigerator aka fridge in the U.S.A. Makes a sudden sound. Oh My Gosh! Not now.

Then my one tooth was acting up and finally went to my dentist and lo and behold I needed a cap. And as everyone knows they are a little expensive. I’m laughing as I wrote “little”.

So at this point have to redo my budget,
Keep thinking positive,
Keep that smile on my face,
Prepare for the arrival of bills on January 2, 3, 4, 5, etc of brand new year of 2020, make sure I have a fresh can or bag of coffee or tea bags or loose tea leaves aka Rosie Tea
which is a cockney rhyming word for tea, I read this on one of my friend’s blog.

Have a great day! Hope

Wassail

Hi Everyone!

Hope: Come on girls let’s go for a “wassail”.
Nins:
And where do you think they serve “wassails?”
Abby:
Does anyone know how to make a “wassail?”
Mabel:
I do!!!!
Abby, Nins, Hope: YOU! Where in the heck did you learn how to do that?
Mabel: Well when I was younger “wassail” was a big treat in our home for the holidays. Here’s the story I found, that will help everyone understand:
From Dictionary.com: In some English communities, on the Twelfth Night of Christmas, people go wassailing, where they sing songs called wassails to the apple trees to wake them up and scare away evil spirits so there will be a good harvest. Those are some powerful wassails …
Wassailing people go caroling, greetings to all who step through your door, festivals, jubilees, and many more words of celebrating.

Found non-alcoholic Wassail recipe. Enjoy!

Have a great day! Hope
