I have been working on this scarf:
On Friday I made a half portion of Pioneer Woman's Perfect Potato Soup, and it is delicious. The full recipe is for 12 people---YIKES---but as she cooks for a minimum of six people and I usually cook for a maximum of two, I thought that six portions were enough.
Well, this is exciting---I bought a re-usable coffee cup from Starbucks. It costs $1.00 and each time I use it, I get $.10 off the price of my beverage. If I remember to carry the cup in the car with me.
I have learned that I should not follow Pioneer Woman's stocking up list. Again, she cooks for at least six people, and I cook for two. The result is that stuff goes bad before I use it.
I can't not mention Christmas!!! We went to older daughter's home in Austin and spent a lot of time with all of her family as well as with my younger daughter and her boyfriend from LA. A great time was had by all, and as my grandson said when he came downstairs on Christmas morning and saw the gifts under the tree: It worked!

Yes, Christmas worked again this year---a wonderful time with family. :-)
