I did take a nap, LOL, now to get to business..I made a new list, and figured out what didn't come in my order. The delivery guy said they had some IT problems so I didn't get a receipt but I had my email list, only didn't get green beans and muffins.

So today I am going to make some corn bread to go with the leftover chili, and then make a carrot cake so I have a morning snake to make up for the muffins.

I also did get all my stuff transferred to my new calendar, and I realized I haven't even pulled out my Christmas cards. I must get back on track, now that I have dealt with CoveredCA.

Social Security finally got back to me to pay back my money received in 2016, happy to see I can charge it and get points! So I will schedule that after this billing is over (I already have RE Taxes on there so don't want to shock myself with a majorly high bill).

Also scheduling the stock sale for January that way it doesn't give me more income for 2017, it is such an annoyance that I have to watch that for a couple of more years.

LMAO...so I figured out why my cornbread doesn't rise as much as it used to....the baking powder says best by 2012!!! This caused me to also check my baking soda, not as bad...2016. Hahahahaha, those 2 items are now on my shopping list, plus that probably means the baking soda in the fridge needs replacing as well.

Cornbread in the oven.

Ok, outside slider cleaned, now I just need to do the inside where are the kitty nose prints are, it is so amazing to see that they have left their mark on the door.

I can't believe how nice it is outside, it feels like spring, nice and warm....off to read my book until the sun sets and winter returns.

Friday's Mission

Never thought about baking soda/powder having an expiration date, I'll have to check mine.

I still have quite a bit of wrapping to do, but I've been chipping away at that.

I did some housework and laundry today. Didn't do a lot, but finished my list.

Tomorrow Kota has a dentist appointment. I also need to make a quick run to the store for a couple things. Not sure what else I'll be doing, since it's kind of iffy how long we'll be at the dentist.

It was a surprise to me, LOL. I guess I will get the inside slider cleaned, then I can hang up my Christmas decoration. Need to find my Santa hat so I can convert my Halloween witch to a Santa decoration.

Swept the kitchen/living room/hallway/foyer and shook out another rug. I swear all the outdoors are trying to come into my house these days. There are these little whirly things all over the balcony and all kinds of little pieces of something, I don't know but the birds peck at them so maybe they are some sort of seed. Anyway all that stuff keeps trying to come inside!!!

Next up is the slider, that ought to fascinate Nala, oh and I want to make my cake.

I made it a point to find my Christmas hat and stocking to put out on the porch! That is done, is is Christmas out front.

I will get the rest of the decorations up today. Already put out a few, need to do the slider.

Made my spice cake, it's in the oven, once that is done I will clean up the kitchen and that might be it for the day.

Oh I forgot, I did get my Christmas cards addressed yesterday, I cut my list down considerably, but I need some Christmas stamps going to see if I can get some here asap online. Otherwise I have to plan a trip up to Trader Joes.

Today I will write notes, and get them finished up.

Got the stamps ordered, and I put up half the slider decorations, the easy ones that don't tangle when put away, LOL. Cleaned up the kitchen and scrubbed down the sink.

I guess tomorrow is Christmas cards and the other half of the slider decorations.

In the meantime there's a new Hallmark movie coming on soon.

Took Kota to her dentist appt yesterday, took forever. They did the filling, but something went wrong and they had to redo it. Hit the grocery store while we were right there for a few things.

Did a bit of cleaning today, then we went to the blvd for the Christmas festival thing. It was just too crowded. The older kids ditched us and went to the park to hang out instead. Me and Darren took little niece and wandered around. She decorated cookies, took a couple pics with some characters and we went to the tea shop and candy store.

Decided to leave and head to the desert preserve because apparently this year they've decorated all the walking paths with lights. Older kids met us over there and as soon as we got there, realized something was up cuz we saw no lights. Took a few minutes to find the sign, said the Christmas light walk was open daily, 5-9pm, except for tonight, head to the blvd to enjoy that event, lol.

Kota, oldest and middle niece, and Kota and oldest nieces boyfriends went to hang out at the blvd/park until curfew. We brought little niece home, had dinner and watched some tv.

Darren and I are going to check out the desert preserve lights tomorrow night and then we'll take the kids over next weekend or weekend after. I have to do some laundry and do some housework, but might not accomplish a lot.

Monday's Mission

Well the desert preserve's lighted walkway was pretty, but really short. We walked through it twice and it took maybe 10 minutes, and most of that time was spent dodging strollers and running kids, lol. We decided to drive over to candy cane lane, the street where everyone goes way out decorating. Two weeks before Christmas and it was packed.

Coming up soon (kids are still in school this week) we'll have the annual younger nieces/nephew spend the night so parents can shop, wrap, or just escape the kid holiday crazies for a night, sleepover. Darren and I decided we're going to take them to the desert preserve to let them run around for a while and then we'll go park somewhere near candy cane lane and walk over there instead of drive down the street. It'll give us something fun, and free, to do with the whole lot of them, and hopefully run some energy off of them, lol.

My plans for tomorrow are more laundry, a trip to Costco for a few things, and whatever cleaning I get done. Although now that I'm thinking of it, I may put off Costco til Tuesday. Depends how my day goes.

Not sure what I will do today, I probably have some basic stuff to manage.

This morning I put the rest of the slider decorations up, so got those boxes put away, and I unloaded the dishwasher....ran it last night.

I need to plant some kitty grass so yesterday I got a container and filled it with potting soil so that I can more easily do that.

Oh, I need to work on my cards and I received my new sonic toothbrush so I need to unpack that and figure it out.

Saw an interesting recipe for Eggnog pound cake and I am thinking maybe I will use my white cake mix and add eggnog to that and see how that works out.

Dipo, adding eggnog to a cake mix won't really do much for "egggnog" flavor. All it is is eggs/milk. Best to follow those recipes for the special eggnoggy goodness.

Thanks Landileigh, the recipe is just a normal cake batter with eggnog instead of milk, as a bundt cake. Then eggnog glace poured over it so I was thinking with a cake mix it would be the same.
