Happy Holidays from The Dept. of Nance

Merry ChrisMoose, Dept. of Nance readers! Things have already gotten way out of hand here--we've become Holiday Central. Crock Pots have been filled, drapes have been de-cathaired, and the cookies have been brought out of their deep freeze of pre-Christmas hibernation. My house smells like lemon Pledge, Febreeze, Mr. Clean, Windex, Formula 409, and takeout Chinese. That's today. Tomorrow, those aromas will be replaced with glazed ham, Friendship Cake, my three kinds of fudge, Confetti Baked Beans, and all the tangy aromas of the dishes of mixed pickles, shrimp cocktail sauce, and dill dip for the veggie crudites. And once the fam arrive with the trays and trays of cookies, all sorts of indiscretions will occur.

Aaah, Christmas. I hope yours is warm, restful, happy, and above all else, spent with those you most want to be with. I'll see you in the new year. I have such high hopes for 2007, don't you?




  1. We must seriously hang out sometime in the next week, even if it's just briefly. I'm giving you a day or two to call me before I obsessively begin calling you every hour until I get through.

    With love! ;)

  4. Merry Christmas Nance! Three kinds of fudge! Wow, that sounds good!

    I have the feeling that 2007 is going to be a good one too!

  5. Well aren't you all kinds of "worky" at the Dept.

    Sounds lovely.

    You put me to shame, though I did get the house cleaned and one standard turkey dinner prepared for four--shock and awe.

    Enjoy your break!

  6. ih, Nina, Anali, V--I truly did take a Christmas break and stayed off the computer for the Holiday Week. Belated thanks for the kind greetings, and I did have a Merry Christmas and relaxing start to Double-O-Seven, as I have dubbed the New Year. I have great hopes for this new BLUE year and "they" had better not let me down! Welcome back to the Dept. in 2007.


Oh, thank you for joining the fray!
