Oh, the vanilla ice cream is a MUST!!!! What two DIVINELY INVENTED flavors, non? THANK GOD FOR THEM!!!

Oh dearest, DID YOU ENJOY YOUR CHRISTMAS SONGS??????? I too had a phenomenal weekend by going to see two of my little girls dance as mice in the Nutcracker. To see all the levels off dancers and even some TEACHERS do their GRAND JETÉS with such great precision was a JOY. What pure bliss indeed to witness the celebration in the tradition of our lives.

IT IS WEDNESDAY INDEED! Today is novel studies and a poem in English class and in French science, research on GERMS!!! Not a bad day, I HOPE!

LOVE TO YOU! Anita

OH KORALEE!

I STAYED HOME TODAY just to get some sleep and catch up on my Christmas cards, blog posts and ideas for Etsy!!!! But yes, TOO many meetings, too many assemblies, too many pull-outs for this or that, and too many little fires to put out!! Oh I am so glad you are going to Seattle this weekend dearest; you are going to have a blast with your beloved. Hmmmm...I think Ruben and I will go out too this weekend and then come home to some homemade CHICKEN/THYME soup with carrots, potatoes and spinach! MUCH LOVE TO YOU SWEET ONE!!!! Anita

Maria said...

Hi Koralee ~ I'm spending one last little quiet moment before I leave school ~
I'm typing here in my classroom with Christmas decorations mostly up... still need to hang up the snowflakes...
...Sipping the last of my Earl Grey ♥
So nice to visit your sweet post. I really enjoyed your recipe for the hot cocoa spoons in Where Women Cook. It's a beautiful idea, delicious and what a presentation! The best cocoa IS made with milk * you are so right about that!
I wish you a wonderful Friday, Koralee ~ and a few quiet, cozy cups of tea * * *
~xoxo~
Maria

Love to YOU xxooxx

Vanilla ice cream huh? I haven't tried that. I had a cup today with whipped cream and shortbread. I had my physical today and thought I earned a little treat!
