Santa was very, very good to me! Mr. Sister sent me on a fun treasure hunt looking for my gift. I was expecting a Snuggie or a Panther jersey. Instead I was truly surprised. I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of our family:
I've named her "Black Beauty". I finally had the opportunity to put her to work last night. She made Greek style turkey meatloaf and it was so quick, easy and painless (normally my Raynaud's acts up big time when I mix meatloaf by hand so this was a much appreciated benefit).
If you all have KitchenAid tips, hints and/or recipes please send them my way. I have a feeling Black Beauty and I will become fast friends!
My 2nd most favorite gift was the chocolate brown Snuggie that my daughter gave me.

It's so soft and comfortable. It definitely keeps you warm! I'm glad I had the foresight to bring it to Kansas with me. I don't think I could have handled the temperatures without it (my sister's house is a bit on the cool side). Also, it came in handy as a lap blanket on the cold drive home last weekend, again, keeping the Raynaud's at bay!
Thank You Bashful Toast!
Bashful awarded me with the following:
Although I received this one before I did not know the "rules" that state to list the 10 things that make you happy. It's hard to narrow down but here is my list in no particular order:
Faith, my family, preparing a meal, artistic endeavors, listening to my daughter sing, watching Munchie play, the Holy Eucharist, my best friend Betty, Daisy, and sleeping in! If I had to list more I would have included chocolate and red wine to the list.
I will pass this on to the following blogs: From Misery to Happiness in 365 Days, Just Because my Pickle Talks, The Extraordinary Ordinary, Table for Nine, and Running With Letters.
Now it's time to seize the day. Make it a good one!
