Feeling snoozy

I think events of the past week have really caught up with both of us. Mike fell asleep on the couch just before 3pm, air conditioner going, and he's happily dozing. He had channel 2 on, some documentary that has finished, and now it's opera singing on it. ha! He'll get a surprise when he wakes up. Oh and the minute my father-in-law left yesterday afternoon, I lay down on the bed and didn't get up for an hour.

I've just done a bit of baking, well not baking because it didn't use the oven, I just made some cherry ripe truffles courtesy of my friend Lucy's recipe. Delish.

1 packet Nice biscuits
1 can condensed milk
3 cherry ripes
2 tablespoons cocoa

Whiz in a food processor, roll into balls and coat with coconut.
Refrigerate until firm.

How easy is that. Actually I didn't quite need the whole can of condensed milk, in case you are planning on making it.

I took Lucky for a walk earlier to mail the last of my Christmas cards. And that's been the sum total of our day. How decadent.

Not many things planned for next week, anxiously awaiting the postman to bring the last two orders I had made of two gifts. I may have to dive down the street and get an emergency present if they don't come. Why oh why do I have brilliant ideas so late in the piece.

I love to do heritage pages, telling our story is one of the reasons I have this scrapbooking passion. This is part of my story from yesteryear.

We got an email today to tell us the books we ordered a week ago (from an Australian supplier) won't be coming. Fortunately, the grandsons are too small to know that they are one present short!

mmmmm Hope that the Cherry ripe balls were delish. I can't wait for a few lazy days, hopefully Santa will remember me a good book to go with the lazing.
