It makes its way into our house once a week because of the book reviews.
An evening with Amy Krouse Rosenthal brownpapertickets. So for those of you who enjoy my comments or essayettes, please look for them on my Facebook page. And thank you for your interest and support. December 20, I have gotten lots of wonderful Christmas presents in my life. Also the time I got the teddy bear I called Hope, whom I still have.
But the other day I got another wonderful gift. It made me laugh out loud, which made him thump his tail.
I came downstairs and got a cup of coffee, then went into my study to work, and it started to snow. It was the kind of snow that looked like someone had torn up lace, and it drifted down slowly and so beautifully for hours.
After I finished working, I went to our little downtown to get some shopping done, and coming down the street was a sleigh being pulled by a team of horses wearing jingle bells. Outside one store was a group of carolers wearing old fashioned clothes: I have to tell you I devastated when I learned there was no Santa.
No one would make that up! Even if they girls would deny being innocent, even if they would resent being called innocent, that is how they looked.
This concert was a fundraiser, and in the lobby there were gingerbread cookies lying on a paper plate, ginger men and ginger ladies, so many it looked like a small nation, and they were only five dollars. I bought them before the concert started and brought them in with me so they could hear too.
It reminded me of my friend Phyllis, who used to pay her neices a quarter to mess around with her hair--gently! After the concert I went to a holiday party where I knew almost no one, but enjoyed a freindly chat and some wonderful food and an excellent martini which I drank from a plastic glass featuring a holly and berry design.
Joy lay on my chest like a cat. May the new year bring up hope, happiness and a measure of sanity to our inglorious Congress.
In the spirit of the season, I offer the following recipe: Pull beleaguered turkey from refrigerator. Also pull out all the other leftovers. Wonder bread is best, but take care not to get any of that vile enriched or WW stuff.
Spread both sides of the bread with a lot of mayonnaise. The goal here is to have mayonnaise squishing out of the sandwich every time you take a bite.
Pile on some turkey. Pile on some stuffing. Pile on some cranberry sauce. Pile on some potato chips. Pile on some gravy and also some green bean bake. Keep telling that person that this is YOUR sandwich, no, they cannot have a bite, if they want one, make their own.
Only the little one. Photograph your sandwich from a few different angles. You will use one of these photos to have a t-shirt made to sleep in and to remind you that next year you can have another sandwich just like this.Bowes and Church's Food Values of Portions Commonly Used, Text and CD-ROM Package, Jean A.

This is a begging letter, as my mother would have called it.
I am begging anyone who thinks they might have the slightest interest in coming to the next Writing Matters event on Saturday evening, June 20th, featuring the absolutely delightful children's book writer Amy .
