Very cold last night....   Clear... so any daytime heat just wicked up into the sky...  The bird bath was frozen...

Don't you love these kinds of illustrations?  Snow on rooftops and golden light glowing in many windows?  😊

Made an "Impossible Pie" for dinner last night, and the rest will be dinner tonight.  I love meals in one dish, which make enough for 2 meals.  I really should look up a lot of recipes, for such.  If you have any suggestions for me, I would love to hear them!!!!!

Got something done and "off our plate," today!!!!  Yesssssssssssss!!!!  If we could drink, we would be having Champagne tonight, instead of non-alcoholic Eggnog.  🍷

Did you ever watch the movie "Michael"??? 


It's fun and I was so happy to find it, on one of our streaming channels.  The first part kind of drags, but it really picks up, after Jean Stapleton's character dies.  ~~~~  

It is *cheeky*, of course.  πŸ˜‰

Both Sides...

 Not having grown up with it, I do not fully understand Royalty.

But I can enjoy reading about what the Royals, of different countries, are doing.  A safe hobby...  😊

And I certainly can appreciate people, doing their JOB, whatever it may be. 

And doing it well, without complaints.

As Prince William and Princess Catherine do.

(Prince William; "What is this thing and what do you do with it.")  πŸ˜„

What I do not appreciate is Royals, wanting the perks of Royalty, such as living in a mansion with nanny for children, and paid people, taking care of everything, and major security, and titles, etc.

But not doing any Royal Duties.  Spending their time, moaning and crying, about all the suffering they have endured...   And blaming everyone but themselves, for everything.  (Please note her crying 😒, with an expensive Hermes rug on her lounge.πŸ˜’
It would seem that 40 year old people should spend their time, doing something, other than....  Making $$$$$$$ off of television and a book....   Consisting of how other people have wronged them...   And how fate has wronged them....  And how everyone else is to blame for all their woes.

πŸŽ„πŸ””πŸŽ„And on the 1st day of Dec.πŸŽ„πŸ””πŸŽ„

Isn't that the sweetest illustration.....  πŸ’•  She is so lovely and happy, and he is so handsome and smitten...  πŸ’•

I actually found Lactaid Eggnog!!!!!  How about that???  I get regular non alcoholic Eggnog for him, and have a sip.  It's delicious, which I never realized for years!!!

  So now, I can enjoy a small glass of it myself, without the regular Lactose Intolerance worry.  Actually, I still take a Dairy Relief tablet, just in case, there isn't enough of it, in Lactaid products.

Was able to get a Balsam wreath with red bow, where I pick up my groceriesSo at least, the front door looks nice.  Hope next door sickness has subsided by the weekend, and one of the Grands can bring our tree down.  And I need to get the mantle decorations down.

We went for a late lunch, at the little West Side neighborhood Bar and Grill, recently.  We were surprised to have only 1 parking place left!!!  When we got in, we realized why it was packed!!!!  The Iran/USA soccer (football, outside the US) game was on!!!   They have tv sets (for sports) all along the walls, and the game was on the HUGE one.  

The Bar was full...  The Grill was full...   Watching the game, while eating and drinking...  Some were VERY enthusiastic!   Chants of "USA"  "USA"  "USA"   It was so much fun!!!

When the game was over, and won...  The place cleared out.  -grin-

It turned very cold and windy and we had snow showers earlierPerfect for the first day of December.
Love....  Togetherness...  Perfection...

We love William and Catherine!!!!

Today's Royalty can carry their own umbrellas.

It's now official!!!!  Flare bottom pants are back in style!

Of course, not all women will look as gorgeous in them, as Princess Catherine.  😏 

Oh and look!!!!!  His sweater matches the color of her pants suit!!!!!!   πŸ’—
