I haven't done anything yet lately. Seriously. I'm bored beyond belief.
Nothing is new and exciting. No projects at home. Just maintaining a low standard of clean...okay, that isn't true. I've really realized lately how OCD I really am. I can't just wash my hands, I have to wash my hands and then wipe away the spots on the faucet and if anything else within sight is out of place, I'll have to fix that too. I have a problem. It takes me forever to go to bed or to leave the house. I've decided I shouldn't actually go outdoors at all. Wouldn't that be dreamy?
I could become a Christmas hermit. Living by the glow of the white twinkly lights. Curled up on my super small sofa watching Christmas movie after Christmas movie on TV. I could even finally tackle holiday baking with all that time to myself. Luckily it is finally wintery mixing outside and I have a great excuse to park it. For tonight anyhow.
Nothing makes me happier than hanging at home with Peanut.

I haven't done anything yet, but I had this brilliant idea tonight. The Xmas decorations had me craving a grasshopper...a holiday tradition my mom and I used to share.
I don't usually have dairy, but all of a sudden the light bulb went off connecting banana ice cream with the possibility of a grasshopper I could actually enjoy.
I pulled a bag of frozen banana out of my freezer and threw it in the Ninja. Added coconut milk to reach the 1 cup level. And then the magic happened with a tablespoon each of creme de menthe and creme de cacao. Yummy! It's just like Christmas in a cup!
Finally got the tree up and all the other little pieces are falling into place. I thought my father would appreciate the lovely right angles of my new arrangement even if the angles are kitty wampus to the walls. This is why I got smaller sofas. It finally works!
I also got sick of all the stuff out of place due to the barricading of the basement. I unbarricaded today, so keep your fingers crossed we won't have a mouse stirring tonight.
I can't wait to kick up my heels, pop in a holiday movie, and pop up a treat for Peanut and me. On the agenda for tomorrow... Holiday baking. I hope to find a few tasty gluten free alternatives to holiday favorites. Any suggestions?
