Yesterday I did the big grocery store stop. You know the stop, where you're in the store forever looking for items that you only buy once a year and don't remember where they were last year, let alone where they've moved to this year....yes that stop. So anyway, I'm going up and down the aisles, marking things off my list when I get to the dairy section. "Eggnog", that's what's on my list. Eggnog has been on my mind since Halloween, that's when my favorite brand showed up in my dairy case. Now I don't want to spoil eggnog for the innocent by revealing the details of the nutritional label, suffice it to say that there's a good reason why it tastes so delicious and why I don't need to be drinking a quart of it every week. So for 8 weeks I've been looking at my eggnog in the dairy case saying, "See ya Christmas"..... Only yesterday there was no eggnog!! All gone, already bought and consumed by everyone in town but me! Oh well, it's not like someone's going to look at my chubby cheeks and say, "Thelma, you need some eggnog". But I'll be missing my glass of cheer, on the rocks, with a little nutmeg sprinkled on top. Rest assured I'll be drinking eggnog on Halloween next year!
OK, the Christmas tour is winding down at my house, here's my last Christmas Village vignette that I call "Christmas in the City"
This is a hustling, bustling town. It even has Starbucks just in case you need a little caffeine to help you with your hustle.
Here's some folks moving in on Christmas Eve, they have a red couch!!
What town doesn't have a movie theater and friendly firemen.
I hope you all enjoy your Eve of Christmas Eve and get everything done so you can start enjoying this happy time of year.
Don't forget, if you have time tomorrow stop back by, I'll be posting my progress on "Oh Christmas Tree". I was able to squeeze in a little more time in my sewing room yesterday.
