???? Penny helped me decorate the tree, and I think she did a lovely job. Hardly any branches dripping with drool! She wanted to add bacon, but she conceded when I said she could just have bacon now instead of putting it on the tree. We’re both happy with that decision.
???? I am still working on a recipe post from before Thanksgiving because I’ve made it twice now and it gets eaten so quickly I forget to take pictures. SIGH. I’m working on it. Oh – and the music notes emoji is because I like to listen to music while I bake. My favorite playlist is Frank Sinatra radio on Spotify. Frank, Etta, Miles – it’s wonderful!
⛄ We got a smattering of snow, early in the week, but it didn’t stick. I desperately want a White Christmas this year, so I’m going to keep my fingers and toes crossed for it.
???? I saw a woman helping an elderly homeless man cross the street in the cold, COLD rain in Boston to get into a nice warm coffee shop. I walked a little bit slower than usual so see what she did from there, and I’m glad I did. She bought him coffee, a breakfast sandwich, and a bag of baked goods to take with him for later. He gave her this huge hug and even from the street I could see that he was crying. I teared up at such a lovely random act of kindness from one stranger to another.
???? ???? Last night was my company’s holiday party, which was a blast. T-rex Christmas sweaters, drinks and White elephant are always a good idea (in case you weren’t sure). And tonight is the boyfriend’s company holiday party, which is a much more formal affair. Hair, makeup, gown, heels… the works! I’ll make sure to give you the run down on the food situation next week, because last year is was pretty freaking great (read: lobster mac and cheese. YEAH.).
