Friday-Fill-Ins

 

Today's the last Friday you get a choice of the regular fill-ins OR a different kind of fill-in (or both). As you know, a friend emailed me a list where you have to identify Christmas songs by the initials of the first words of the first line of each song. If you'd like to play along, great! And...Merry Christmas eve to those who celebrate it!
So...here we go!


1. These are a few days of relaxing.
2. Traditional Duck, red cabbage, Brussels sprouts with chestnuts and pancetta and dumplings will be our holiday dinner.
3. What's that I hear outside… sleigh bells?? ;).
4. With the snow it’s all so quiet, quiet.
5. Some of my favorite holiday memories include getting our tree from the woods when I was about 6.
6. Nothing is stirring - not even a mouse.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Christmas Eve celebration with opening of presents, tomorrow my plans include spending most day with the inlaws and Sunday, I want to have a PJ day!

Still battling migraine…

That’s a first for a while … 2 days in a row migraine… might be the weather, who knows?

Tomorrow’s my last day at work for the rest of the year … and I haven’t been told yet whether my contract is getting extended … fairly annoying really, but nothing new for me.

I *suspect* that my contract will be extended, but will see.

Got everything sorted for Christmas, tree is on the patio, we got all food in the fridge & freezer (have to remember to take the duckling out tomorrow eve). Presents are all wrapped and accounted for (and it looks like my presents from DH have now finally arrived too, as well as his Lego orders).

I’m somehow not with it right now … still can’t believe on Friday is already Christmas eve!!! Fortunately, DH and I are both off work that day so can finalise things.

Friday Fill-ins #202



*This week, I'm going to give you a choice of fill-ins OR a different kind of fill-in (or both). A friend emailed me a list where you have to identify Christmas songs by the initials of the first words of the first line of each song. Each Friday until Christmas Eve I'll post 9 more of these songs and if you'd like to play along, great!
So...here we go! *

1. The best thing about a birthday celebration is having family and friends around.
2. This year skipped the passage of time.
3. I went shopping recently and the most interesting thing I bought was lots of cook books! .
4. Baking cookies is not child's game with our oven!
5. The reason is that I haven’t perfected the baking of my granny’s Christmas cookies with a fan assisted oven just yet.
6. We’ve got tons of snow and cold.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Leberkaese for Dinner, tomorrow my plans include another trip to the hospital and shopping and Sunday, I want to finally finish my advent wreath!

AND/OR
1. HYAMLC: Have yourself a merry little Christmas
2. TFNTADS: The First Noel The Angel Did Say (ok ... cheated on that one)
3. GRYMGLNYD:
4. ICUAMC:
5. SNHNAICAIB:
