Hi..the turkey is thawing, the cleaning is finished, the beds are all made up, the gifts are wrapped, the decorating is done..I'm officially ready for Christmas with hours to spare :)
I just finished waxing the last floors and folding some clothes, after the floors dry I'm going to put the mats back and put the leaf in the table and be all set. Son and girlfriend won't arrive for a few hours so I have time to put my feet up.. I'd make tea but the kitchen floor is wet...I went along to town for mail and a few last minute groceries, got some new magazines I subscribe to and bought one too. Got a few more Christmas cards, too. Saw some friends and had some visits :) Today I returned a call from an Aunt who lives in northern B.C. She phoned a few days ago, and I finally caught her home, we had a nice visit and I also visited with her daughter, a cousin I haven't seen in 30 years!!! Also chatted with one of my sisters. It's been a busy day and I got lots done!!!
Son just phoned and asked if we have any eggnog..he could pick some up, he's still several hours away :) I have a favorite recipe for eggnog..1 package of instant vanilla pudding, sugar free if you want, 6 to 8 cups of milk, I usually use 1 %, mix it up and add cinnamon or nutmeg (and booze if you like) yumyum!!
I will now try to up load some of my decorating pictures...

Hi..I have a few last minute jobs for tomorrow..like thaw the turkey, etc and do a bit more cleaning. I;m relaxing on the couch, watching The Time Traveller's Wife...having beer instead of tea. For those of you that read yesterday's goal up date I was up to 198 but today I'm back to 197..must have been all that salt in the chinese food Tuesday....
I did a bit more outside decorating, cut my pine branch and put little sprigs around on the pictures..carried many,many loads of crap to the basement. Hubby put new taps on the kitchen sink, did chores and did some pasture work, even tho he's not on staff anymore he still has to prepare for the allocation meeting next week and do lots of work even tho he's not on the pay roll :(
This will be a short blog since I still need to make up some beds..ours included. We had roast beef sandwiches with spinach for lunch, and pork chops , corn and spinach salad for supper. I had tea for lunch so I'm not having more tonight..just another glass of water after my beer..
The ball team women are having another ladies night tomorrow night but son and girlfriend are coming down tomorrow after work so want to be home..can't be everywhere :) too bad I can't be cloned haha..all I want for Christmas is a clone?? haha!!
Take care and keep on Sparkin'...
Merry Christmas all..

Hi..just thought I should recap my goals and track my December progress. Thanks every one for stopping by for a chat and tea and inspiration :)
Tea's going great..I'm enjoying relaxing with my pot of tea most nights and have found a few new flavors to add to my collection. It really helps to get lots of fluids and to cut down on night snacking...
Exercise is not going as good as hoped I'm still being active with cleaning and painting and helping outside but I hope later in the month I'll be back riding my bike..and use my 10 free gym sessions..and really amp up January...
water and tea...I've had 10 cups most days :)...
healthy foods..small amounts of treats..well I have had some treats but way, way less than most December's so I'm happy with my progress..not perfection..just progress :) When I do over eat I cut back the next day...
home improvements are coming, the rooms are all painted but the porch and that can wait until January...I'll post some more pictures when I finish decorating...
Christmas preparations are coming along great..good thing since we're having Christmas on the 18th so I just have a few more days to get ready.. today I made tarts so baking is finished, I made cabbage rolls to go with the turkey, gifts are all wrapped and under the tree. I have a bit more cleaning to do..getting beds ready for the kids and do a bit more decorating, I shampooed the family room rug today so that's done..
streaks..I've logged on and got points everyday so far in Dec. also tracked food and exercise and water....
time for self..I've been listening to my favorite Christmas cds, enjoying lots of bubble baths, reading a new book called Snow Globe, watching some Christmas shows, reading lots of new magazines, spending time with friends, and spending lots of time with Spark friends...
give something to some one daily..I sent out over 50 Christmas cards, gave all my slo-pitch team Christmas gifts, brought a plate of cookies to a retirement potluck, gave a gift to hubby's office and brought cookies to the Christmas party, gave granddaughter her birthday gifts and brought up some early gifts for the rest of them..cookies etc, brought cookies to my favorite x boss at the drugstore :) left positive comments on lots of Spark stuff, shared a blog almost every day . I'm going to be giving Spark goodies to my friends next week, after my early Christmas, my friend and I are also going carolling at the seniors home next week....
goal weight 195 for December 31..well I started at 197 have been down to 196 and now am at 198 so ..I still have 2 weeks to get back on track..
Well that's my recap of the goals so far..hope you're all moving towards your goals too..thanks for stopping by for a chat and tea :)
Keep on sparkin'...
