I was walking in the store tonight......and saw these ........

CUTE little MINI tubs of Ben and Jerry's ice individual serving cups.....only 3.5 ounces....comes with a spoon.....a great way to portion control your serving or to try a flavor you are not sure you would like!

NO I did not buy any...I found these pics online! I sure would enjoy some though!

I am tired. Burning the candle at both ends....

AND farewell Betty she passed away.......85 years old but I always think of her as looking like this!

or this....

or this...

Question of the season.......why can't someone invent some way to package and sell ornament hooks so they do not get tangled up???

Well my Christmas tree is up......

I am keeping things a lot simpler this year. Not many other decorations.....a few wreaths and bows.....some outside......the tree inside...that is about it. The stress level is amazingly LOWER......and I do not feel pressed for time. The cat is also leaving the tree alone for the most part this that stress has been reduced.

I also am not going to be making a ton of cookies or candy like I have in the past. It is expensive to get the ingredients and not everyone needs them anymore or eats them maybe 1 or 2 special treats this year...maybe something entirely new is in order.

I will post a tree picture later today after I photograph it

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button......F. Scott Fitzgerald......coming Christmas Day 2008

Have you read the short story? You can go here to read it online:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I know the movie will have to put a lot more details in the story to make this one work.....but something about the story does fascinate me and I am anxious to see how the movie will turn out. Here are a couple of previews:

BRAD PITT will play Benjamin Button? hum.....should be interesting...
