My Christmas mug is empty. I am torn this morning between coffee or hot chocolate. I think that I will go with Mackintosh’s hot chocolate. Just the thought of the rich frothy sweet taste sounds good. The chocolate and caramel smell will be uplifting and festive too. What can I get you: After Eight, Rolo, Mackintosh’s, Turtles, Coffee Crisp or a regular hot chocolate? Or perhaps you would prefer to stick with tea or coffee?
If we were having coffee I would get right to the point at hand: Christmas cards. Is sending out Christmas cards becoming a thing of the past? See this is usually when I start slowly getting my cards ready for the mail and I mail them December first. I enjoy the tradition of send and receiving Christmas cards! Does anybody else? It seems that the last few years I have received less and less cards and it got me wondering about the tradition of sending and receiving them. How about you, where do you fit into the Christmas card world (or fading world)?
If we were having coffee I would tell you that one of my favourite pieces of writing will be posted tomorrow. I admit that I am a bit bias towards it given that I am the author but I am hoping that you will get a chance to stop by and have a read. Watch for it, it is called Threats of Memory. Actually as I am thinking about it I am also a bit partial to Wednesday’s Penis Chronicles post as well: Growing a Baby – Journey of a Mother. And speaking of posts that you might enjoy reading Gary shared a link last week during that I would recommend to you: First Personal Job by Gary A Wilson.
If we were having coffee I would give a heavy sigh and shift my eyes to the window as I point out the winter snows have arrived. Sledding and missing winter mitt season is upon us. The stores are already a bustle with Christmas preparations and the kids are eagerly watching commercials for possible ideas to send to Santa. This reminds me, does anybody remember the big Sears Christmas Wish Book that use to come out around now? I miss that. I can remember spending hours looking through it as a child and marveling over the neat gift ideas it carried.
