This & That

 

WINTER  will be here as of  this evening at 11:48 pm  so tomorrow will be the first official day of WINTER ! Late dawn. Early sunset. Short day. Long night. For us in the Northern Hemisphere, the December solstice marks the longest night and shortest day of the year. Meanwhile, on the day of the December solstice, the Southern Hemisphere has its longest day and shortest night.     Instead of the cold and  snow  we usually have we have warm temps and pouring rain .  The rest of the week is a mix of sun and rain and mild , very strange weather  for us but at least it isnt freezing cold .

Over the weekend I bought this tin of cookies and  OH MY I cant stop snacking on them . I remembered them from years ago from a store we used to shop at called Marks & Spencer or as we called it Marks & Sparks  it was a British store that importated all things British from cloths to food and even linnens , now that store is no longer  it had shut down years ago over here . I had found these and the tin jogged my memory  to back then  and  you will never guess where  I got them , wait for it …. at Walmart  yes I said Walmart they had hundreds of these tined cookies and  I had to have a tin and now, well lets just say a lot of walking is to be done lol !

                 DECEMBER 2015 (3 of 3)

            With a cuppa tea or two OH MY they are soo good I had forgoten what these tasted like  and now I know and remember  and please some one stop me lol  . Good thing we aren’t burried in snow and I can still get out and do my walking cause I would have to be carried out at this rate lol  talk about a chocolate covered cookie overload  WOW !!  oh well once a year for a day ot two wont hurt now will it lol !

Any who rainy day for us here so off I go to do some wraping of gifts and organizing foods for the holidays  . Our kids are coming down this Christmas and will be here a day or two so that will be great . They are all grown up and have lives of their own and other sides of familys to do Christmas with but this year they are here .  So we will have a house full .

      I will be taking the rest of the week off from posting so I will  thank you all for popping by  and we wish you a safe and

 

                                          MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

Ooh my.....
I could eat the entire tin...lol
The weather is unseasonably warm, we reached 70 degrees today, I'm enjoying the milder temps, but still would like a dusting of snow for Christmas :)
Wishing you and yours there in 'The Cove' a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year my friend.
Hugs,
~Jo

You will have to send me your address and I will send you over an M&S tin of biscuits! I love these so much, especially the thick chocolate that surrounds the biscuit. Have a wonderful Christmas with your wonderful family and a big hug to Miggs from Tia xx

We also celebrated the Winter Solstice here by inviting some fellow apt dwellers over for wine and goodies. Your treats looked delicious, Elaine. Our best wishes to you and yours for a very Merry Christmas!
