I spent the weekend decorating for Christmas.  I put the lights outside, sparkly snowflakes on the front of the house and colored lights going up the stairs.  I put a little Christmas tree (I used to put it in my office when I worked in an office) in our entry way.  Lights going across the fireplace.  I have more to do but I did what I could this weekend.

I had movie night on Saturday night.  Okay, it wasn't as successful as I wanted it to be.  I was told to find a funny movie.  Now, my opinion of funny movies is that everyone finds a different thing funny.  Brenda and I find very different things funny a lot of the time.  She loves the Three Stooges and I can't stand them.  It is like pulling out my fingernails to watch them.  I spoke to a few people and was given the recommendation "Rock of Ages".  It went over like a lead balloon.  The group is between 60 - 35.  The older folks didn't know most of the music and one of them hates Tom Cruise.  The younger folk had some chuckles.  The movie was not a hit with this crowd.  No more funny movies!  We agreed to meet up again in January.

My bookclub holiday potluck is tomorrow and I decorated.  I have not yet figured out what I am making.  I have to bring a vegetable.  I need to work that out in the next few hours.  I have to set the table and go get the flowers for the table.  Then make the veg dish.  I already bought the wine and drinks.  I also need to get some appetizer type thing.  My day is already planned out!

I will give you an update on the dinner.  I am just happy I am staying healthy through this time of the year.  I got a flu shot last week so I feel like I have the shield around me.  Like a superhero! 

Any ideas for a veg/grain side dish, let me know!

I have 5 endorsements!  Don't forget to  nominate me for 2012 WEGO Health Activist Unsung Hero Award!  I need those endorsements!!!

Until tomorrow...

  1. You've been a bizzy bee, Adrienne! I'll be you've already chosen your veggie dish, but may I suggest cooked brown basmati rice, steamed broccoli, and shredded cheese, mixed together and then popped into the oven for 20 minutes or so. You can add any seasonings you like; I prefer a bit of garlic salt and some Italian herbs. It's really simple and always a hit.

    Happy Monday to you!


Would love to hear what you have to say!
