It's Christmas Eve and things are moving apace here.  I have about half a foot left on the sock (and can totally see myself finishing it).  Pk and I are running out to get our space heaters back from my  brother who borrowed them last week.  Our living room can be cold and I want to heat it tomorrow morning.

I have to make the annual torte (without which the holiday will not happen, I have this on good authority) and wait for Emily to come down.  Her housemates were not particularly enthusiastic about her holiday cookie endeavors so I invited her to make some with me.  We LOVE cookies and appreciate them muchly.

We'll make some gingerbread cookies and some spritz. 

I made the most delicious eggnog yesterday.  It's actually called 'coquino' and is a recipe from one of my bowling buddies years ago.  It has cream of coconut in it and it's sooooo good.  I also made the babkas so that's one less thing to do today. 

I plan to have a pleasant, easy going day. 

And in case I don't see you all,

Have a Happy Holiday!  May Santa bring you peace and joy.

With lots of love and affection,

Donna Lee

I'm told that the holiday will not happen without my apple pie and spinach dip!

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
