Coffee and the Christmas Wish List

Here I am having my morning coffee and contemplating the world as I know it. Yesterday was a statutory holiday in BC for Remembrance day and Norm said those terrifying words, “I guess it’s the countdown to Christmas!”

Arggh!!!!! Well, I guess it is. I do have some things already but I’m thinking of what for everybody else. And what do I want for Christmas. The Sears Wish Book actually arrived in our house in August. AUGUST!!!! There were some pretty cool things in there. I love reading the catalogue. I don’t order much from it anymore. I shop more on-line or in person. Oh, crap! How many more Groupon Deals can I squeeze in before Christmas?

What do I want? The same as I always do. I want Peace on Earth, the end of hunger (not just my made up feeling of being hungry but true hunger) and love for everyone. Santa’s not too great at delivering these things they, have to come from us. We do seem to do more giving and charitable works around Christmas time. Sigh!

Now I have to think about Christmas presents and cards. Yes, I still send out Christmas cards and this year they will go out before New Years. You saw it here, now go watch your mailbox! Someone has to keep the postal service working, right? Then there’s the Christmas baking. I bought two pounds of lard last time I bought groceries. It was on sale and I will need to make pies, tarts, and sausage rolls. At least I’m thinking I need to do this. Christmas treats are an important part of the holidays. Aren’t they? Candy, chocolates, cookies, Nanaimo bars, pies, tarts, and the big bunch mixed nuts in the living room – the edible and family kind. I’ve already made my Christmas pudding. It’s pumpkin and in the freezer.

Ugly sweaters, family you only see once a year, turkey (again), candy, egg nog, mincemeat (eeww..), and lots of presents. Christmas is coming. I’ll start my Christmas List and send it to Santa: North Pole, Canada, H0H 0H0.

  • Peace and love for all
  • Willpower
  • Calorie free goodies
  • Tall boots with little heels
  • A cute little black dress
  • No pain
  • Lots of smiles

Now, I’ll be good, nice – not naughty. I will help others and put the little lists on the fridge so we know what everyone else wants, too. These usually read like the comics but they’re fun even if I had to stand in line at Zellers once for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Christmas morning looks were worth it.

Thanks for listening.;D Diane
