A box filled with cookies show up on my doorstep every year right before Christmas!! My dear friend, Susie, in Ohio, bakes them and always makes sure I have a nice supply. The box arrived late yesterday and I couldn't wait to sample a few. She makes the best Christmas cookies! Not only do they look nice, as you can see in the photo, but they are delicious.
I've been feeling a little blue, missing Mom, and not really into the Christmas spirit. Casey and Amanda will be spending Christmas with her parents this year, so it will be quiet around here. I have always been very jovial around the Christmas Season ~ decorating, wrapping, and enjoying Christmas music. So, these cookies arrived and I suddenly felt the Christmas spirit arrive right along with them. I visited a couple of shops today, met Mr. Magic for lunch, wrapped a couple of gifts, and I'm looking forward to putting up the Nativity tomorrow.
There must have been some magic dust in the box with the cookies!
Thank you, Susie.
This little snowman flies to and fro in the flower bed in front of the house. Perhaps he will bring a little snow for Christmas. That would put the icing on the cake for me. Being from Ohio, I am used to a White Christmas and always prayed for snowflakes to start falling right before. There weren't too many years we had a Christmas without snow.
