Christmas 2014 and Thankful Thursday 12/25/2014

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! One of my Instagram buddies posted this the other the day and I think that's a great message for the holidays. Since Christmas is a Thursday; it's perfect. I am thankful for what I have. Of course there are times where it seems it's not enough or it's blah, but others have it much worse.

This morning mom and I made baccala, like what nan used to make. We used her recipe:

2 1/2 cups of flour (add more if it seems watery)
1 package of yeast
3 cups of warm water

Mix and dip cod into the batter. Fry with canola oil.

We ended up putting 3 1/4 cups of flour, but the baccala tasted like what nan used to make! I was so happy about that.

We had a very nice holiday and it was laid back, which is always nice. I loved my Grumpy Cat gifts and the rest of my gifts too. I was given stamps, hooray! And a Pandora bracelet. Dad loved his +Lil BUB shirt, Grumpy Cat CD, and the DVDs I bought him. Mom loved her scrapbook, the Dammit doll and the calendar I made her.

Mom's one gift: Dammit Doll with a gift card for a massage, body oil and cookies I made.

Dad's DVDs (last week)

Movie pack (also taken last week)

Ended the night with this beautiful quarter moon:


  1. Glad you liked your Grumpy Cat gifts. :) In Lincoln the other day, I saw a "Grumpy Cat 2015" calendar in a bookstore.

    1. Should have bought it! :D I'm tempted to get a calendar.
