Cool Stuff I Like
November 28, 2013
Hello friends!!!! Cool stuff a day early!!!! That's a first. Happy T-day today and have a happy day after Thanksgiving, aka NOW IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME!!! My mom is making my favorite stuffing, she makes it very plain for me and adds roasted chestnuts. I have exactly 2 strands of Christmas lights hanging already, but really, they're just wintery glow...not Christmas per se. They will be up until February. Will you eat LOTS of pie? It might snow next week, I'm so excited! I'm very excited to make some gingerbread. I need some long underwear. One year, I put up my tree ON T-day itself. That was an awesome T-day! Is this stream of babble wearing you out yet?
SO thankful to all the folks who read my blog and for the friends I've made here. I hope whatever you're doing today, you have a lovely time.
COOL STUFF this week:
This cookbook just jumped onto my Christmas wish list!
This drink looks yummy.
LOVE LOVE this idea for holiday cards.
I collect Peter Pan books. This one looks unbelievable.

Now's the time to check out my Christmasy Pinterest board. :)
Cool Book of the Week: 'The Full Belly Bowl' by Jim Aylesworth and OH so charmingly illustrated by Wendy Anderson Halperin. This one is a CUTIE and very appropriate for Thanksgiving! It's actually a folktale about a kind elderly fellow who rescues "a wee man" from the jaws of a fox, and in thanks, the wee man gives the elderly gent a magical bowl that multiplies whatever you put into. The man soon figures out that you can put other things in the bowl besides food, and chaos ensues, of course. In the end, the full belly bowl turns out to be more trouble than it's worth, but the old man doesn't mind because he was cool with his simple lifestyle to begin with.
Have a LOVELY weekend! This weekend, we're off to see the movie 'Frozen', so excited! And then we are hanging out and getting Christmasy!!!!!!!! Yeah. I'm sorry. T-day just slows me down from getting my Christmas on. No offense T-day.
