Isn't that just the berries? My grandma used that phrased often. I wonder how far into the next generations these old phrases will last. It's a shame if they just go away. Do you have grandma-isms that you like to say? If you have children around you, make sure you teach them so they're not lost forever.
Anyway....we are fully into December and you might notice (or not) that I continue blogging without regularity. I think when we last touched base, I was trying to sell some stuff. And I have been successful in selling a few items. Last week I made about $180 and this week, if the sale happens later today, I will make $120. I could continue this effort all winter and hopefully bring in several hundred more. I haven't posted anything on eBay as I continue to hear negative stories about people selling there. I don't want hassle. I just want to sell some stuff.
I have made a few online purchases which is so convenient except for the items that require signature and leave me waiting all day. Our county was hit last year and this year by people stealing packages off the front porch of homes. In broad daylight. I'm not willing to let anything sit outside for long, especially if it cost more than a couple dollars. I'm expecting two more items next week and that may be all. We'll see.
I want to bake but I'm fearful that I will eat it all. So I haven't, but I might. We only have one extra person for Christmas and she's not a fan of sweets. Give her something salty and she's good. Maybe just a batch of fudge.
So all is well here and isn't that the berries? I hope your holiday plans are going along without anxiety or pressure. Have a nice weekend.

Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
