It's so fun and enjoyable to be home for the holidays. We are traveling quite a lot. From my Mother's to Chucks Mother's and then to our Son's to see our Grandson and then we do it all over again. At my Mother's, my sister and I were asked by our 86 almost 87 year old mother to help her light her Hanukkah lights. She has a electric menorah in her window. I know! She wanted us to screw in number four light bulb in the the line up. We did it and said a prayer that we remembered form our youth. My Mother was more than pleased. A daughter on each side of her saying a prayer and screwing in the light bulb of the Menorah. Yes we are still making memories. At my Mother in Laws house I wanted to show off my cooking skills by making candied ginger short bread cookies, dipped in chocolate. The candied ginger was $ 11.00. in a very small jar. These cookies were a "epic fail". And everyone was nice about it. My sister in law was not happy. She wanted her cookies. Now I have to come up with something else to show off my baking skills. I think it will be warm ginger bread cake with Carmel sauce. I know it sounds so good. I'll let ya know how this dessert will turn out. During all these festivities Chuck and I made Dr. appointments while we are here. Well, my blood pressure was through the roof and the Doctor said he is proscribing meds to take while I am here. Not sure why this is happening to me. It's usually so low in Costa Rica. Might be from the salt on the margarita I had the night before. I can't tell I am so calm, really. Well sorta, gotta go off to, not sure, the kids or the in laws house. We call it the triangle. Oh joy.
That's my Mom
