It is the day after Christmas, and I am happy to say that no one in this family felt the need to go "return" anything today :)..or buy anything else because it was on sale. I actually spent a few fun hours with one of my best friends.
here are some of our favorites of this Happy Holiday:
Gaia Girls I bought the first in this series of books for my daughter. OMG...every little Goddess should read this book! Both Heike Jr. and I devoured it and give it an A+++. The girls hear the Earth....and help her...
Bedtime Stories: This movie with Adam Sandler is the perfect family movie. Funny, both for old and young. Great effects :).
LEGOS!!! 'Nuff said. Nothing spells hours of intense building like Legos and little Lego people. We just aquired a Police Interrogation Center, and it came with 4(!) new little people....
Winter Beer: Dark, dark beer, with lots of spices, brewed only once a year. Yummy.
Hot Chocolate soap: Made by my best friend named above. She makes some AWESOME soaps, it is the only soap we want to use, EVER. Hot Chocolate is HOT...so is the goat's milk soap :).
We enjoyed our standard Christmas Eve dinner of "Wuerstschen" and potatoe salad, thanks to our German butcher. I also made Schnitzel the next day, and I think I have eaten more pig in the last two day than I should. I normally do not eat pig...Not sure what got into me!
Then there are many, many cookies. My ass is very thankful for all the cookies.
One more thing that makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. On Tuesday, I took my kids to Loaves & Fishes, a local homeless park, to drop off warm jackets, clothes, and boots. I was very touched by the scene there, and sad. I came home and shot all my friends an email, asking them to check their closets for warm items they can spare, because the need is great, especially for kids. I am going back next Friday, with lots of warm clothes. These women are making it happen. Women are awesome. My best friend above, again, also came down the mountain with 5 boxes of nice clothes that we dropped off today. Did I already say "AWESOME"? Those who did not have clothes sent their love. Lots of good Karma in my circle...
What I am grateful for: My circle of women.
What I am manifesting: Health
