I have a little bit of a love/hate relationship with this time of year. It’s more of a love thing currently, so let’s forget the hate part and concentrate on the important stuff. You know, the little things that, combined together make life a little or a lot better.
When I was in the kitchen this morning, I was noticing all the little things that are the best part of waking up at the Casa de George. And it’s Dean and Deluca (and not Folger’s) in my cup, the Manhattan Blend (a gift from our son).
And well, here’s what I mean about the little stuff.
It’s important to incorporate some butter into your holidays.
Trust me on this. Go ahead. You’ll walk it off.
And I think I am in love with Thomas’ English Muffins with Cranberry, a limited holiday edition that I’ve just discovered. I love those little nooks and crannies, some of which are filled with my favorite holiday fruit: cranberries.
Our son got us a pair of mugs that I love.
I also love half and half in my coffee. This cup needs a tad bit more, however.
Willow’s sugar cookies. And I did not eat these for breakfast.
I did have two of them for breakfast dessert, though.
I took my plate and coffee into the living room so that I could check my mail. George came with me and I gave him one of his cookies.
These are George’s favorite dog yummies and are from the Bubba Rose Biscuit Company. The cookies on the right (what’s left of them) were a gift for his stocking from blogging buddy, Daryl. Come to think of it, I just noticed that the third book down was a gift from her to me. Loving this book btw, Daryl.

On another note, it’s not too late to enter my 2-Year Blogging Anniversary Giveaway (see post below). Well, it is too late if you’re reading this past 9 PM (EST) on Monday, Dec. 28. But if you’re reading this sooner and you haven’t already entered, now is the time to do so.
Until later, my friends . . .
Hope your day is a good one.
