Top of the Morning December 18


Merry Merry! Welcome to Monday exactly one week away from Christmas Day! I enjoyed collecting these gems to share with you. Beginning with -- CREATIVE CHRISTMAS TREE ideas I don't have a favorite.  They're all blue ribbon original greatness to me. INTERESTING PHOTOS is better than scrolling through whatever's on Google feed today.  Can you believe how GIANT the anchor chain of the Titanic was?  Or how thick one (just one) of the cables is that holds up the Golden Gate Bridge?  Crazy! OFFICE ANTICS had me smiling big time.  Pretty sure offices could sure use some harmless fun to keep the 9-5 shift a little more interesting. AI VISUALIZING ALL 50 U.S. STATES as Hunger Game contestants had me scrolling through -- first of all with my home state and my now home state and checking out states my friends live in or came from.  Pretty spot on. RECIPES! HOMEMADE MARSHMALLOWS still time to "whip up" something special in the kitchen for gift giving or impress guests during this "brrr time" of year.  Wonder how these homemade marshmallows would work with the favorite Rice Krispie Treats?  It's a must read through the entire recipe to see all the cool variations etc ... super interesting.
5 For Friday December 22


Greetings friends - Christmas!  What's happening around your home/world right now in preparation? First Bell Ringer sighting!  She graciously posed for the pic.  (I feel super bad - me the name rememberer - has lost her name in my head right now.  Big fat boo on me!  Anyway, look at how cool she has dressed for her shift!  And she had music + was moving + ringing the hand bells.  She brought me great joy.  I always strive to put a buck or two in the kettle whenever I see a Bell Ringer or at the very least all the spare change I have on me. My Rubber Tree Plant (I lost from leaving it outside one day too long) gives me one last smile of joy - decorated with a string of red twinkle lights and a vintage Santa I found years ago at a thrift store for, if I remember correctly, was $45 dollars.  SCORE.  I treasure this Santa piece.
