"Downtown Wiarton certainly looks like it is ready for Christmas, but there just seems to be something missing from the picture ..... "
After our running around was done, it was time to come home to get Dinner on the go.Rob, as so does our son, Paul, loves Schnitzel so schnitzel, new potatoes and fresh picked beets from the garden were on our Dinner menu for this day. Have I mentioned before how much I love beets as a vegetable? of course I have ! "I so enjoyed our Dinner, with my mouth still watering looking at these photos .... good thing there are enough leftovers for "me" today !"Once lunch was over with, the usual cleanup completed, my "Crabby Cabbie" off to work, it was time for me to get down to business. That would be Christmas goodie business and I got all over it. First I started with the easiest, of course, and got going on the Rocky Roads.
"Mixed, melted, cooled a bit before adding marshmallows then pressed into a wax paper lined dish."
"Chilled, cut in half for wrapping, and put back into the fridge, out of sight and mind from my "chocolate" urges and "hips".
"Chocolate/margarine mixed melted and cooled a bit before marshmallows are added, then rolled out onto wax paper to form a log."
Oh man, I am still tired from my Yesterday, before my Present day gets started here, as I try not to get myself overwhelmed by thinking too far ahead into the Future days and what still needs to be done .... it always gets done, and what doesn't was not important in the first place, so no need for "worries" after all.Oh yes, and the exciting part of my yesterday was I won a book from We Are Pet Nation, who I follow on Facebook and Twitter. All I had to do was comment on their weekly "product", which just happened to be Dr. Pitcairn's "Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats, and my name was added to a weekly random draw. Wow I am sure I can use a guide like this to refer to, especially with my "pack", or for one of my many other Pet Loving friends, who might be looking for some natural health solutions for their own pet. A Lover of Pets? Check out We Are Pet Nation on their website as follows: http://www.wearepetnation.com/You will not be disappointed, I can almost guarantee it.Onto my Present day and the Wiarton Airport Weatherman guy's report.Ten Days before Christmas with temperatures like these? Not totally unheard of, but really enough already !Lots to do with a couple more Christmas goodies yet to be prepared, so I am, once again, off and running towards a new adventure, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
