What is your favorite way to have potatoes?

I love potatoes any way that I can get them, but I especially love roasted potatoes.

Do you keep your house toasty warm or a bit cooler?

It is easier for me to breathe when the air is cooler, so our air conditioner pretty much runs all year long. Right now, we have the heater on for the whole house for those that need the warmth, but also have a window unit air conditioner on in our room.

What would you most like to see under the tree?

I would love to see the keys to our own house, wayyyyyyyyyyy out in the boonies!

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? This one may not translate to other countries- Just tell us something you want if you don't know what I'm talking about.

I keep hearing about Elf on the Shelf and rather get the impression that it isn't what I thought it was (which was a decoration for the mantel). So, I'll just tell you something that I want, in addition to what I mentioned in the previous question. What I want is for the family and friends that are having health issues to be completely healed and not fear what their future holds. Materially, I would love to be able to get a Lionel train for David.

Have you put up a Christmas tree this year?

Our tree is up all year, though the lights aren't turned on all year. They are on now. :) Today is our oldest daughter's birthday and we kick off the Christmas season in our house on her birthday.

Merry Christmas, everyone! May you all be blessed with lots of love and family in your home this Christmas season and all the year through!


  1. We don't have air conditioning however our temps our in the negatives these days so we try to stay warm. Cuddling helps!

    1. Though I grew up without air conditioning, I don't think that I could live without it at this point in my life. I know I couldn't in our current location.

      I agree. Cuddling is a great way to stay warm. :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great day and a very Merry Christmas!
