Wild Bill's been drinking the Irish cream, in fact, it's going home with him on Tuesday because Susan finds it so completely disgusting that she can't even stand to have it in the house. Currently it's outside in the snow.

Champagne and Chambord have made Susan's Christmas weekend happy.

Starting Monday she's going to cut out the goodies and sugar and a little bit of the drinking.
Next Monday.

Susan's got so many cookies in her house that her kitchen is like a bloody mine field. She added a new biscotti to her baking repertoire and has been tapping the big tin of rainbow cookies that her little sister made.
Rainbow cookies = almond paste.

Before the snow started making the roads really hairy, Susan, her son and Wild Bill went to the BIG, new, organized, clean thrift store. Susan's son went under protest but managed to fight through his lack of enthusiasm and find stuff for his mother to buy him. Wild Bill scored another twenty pounds of books about WWII and Abraham Lincoln as well as some cold weather gear. After 45 minutes Susan started to sneeze so they left.

I was going to start cutting back too, but now it looks like 12-18 inches of snow will force me to stay an extra night on the East Coast and off the wagon.

I'm on board with the next week thing too.

We have a new thrift store, within walking distance (as in 4 blocks). I'm on the wagon this week, because of those nasty medical tests.

We went yesterday to the National Museum of the Pacific War. It was really fascinating. Wild Bill would have liked it.

I didn't know Wild Bill was history buff - Gives me something to search for at those thrift stores - I like having five bucks and a goal.

Which Monday did you mean? NEXT Monday or the NEXT Monday?

Whichever NEXT is later.
