Coffee Run

I don't drink coffee, but I love the smell. The Doctor's office was open for a half day on Christmas Eve (not his choice). He wasn't working, but we were out and about finishing up some Christmas shopping and we stopped and got coffee for the front office staff and therapists.  It was cold and snowing outside. They appreciated it. It was fun to do and my car smelled amazing for two days!

Merry Christmas

The secret of Christmas,
Is not the things you do at Christmas time
But the Christmas things you do
All year through.

Holly's Notes:
This is part of my mother's Christmas Goodie plate each year. She always makes an extra batch just for my brother-in-law! So yummy. I find my raw peanuts at Winco, but any store that sells bulk items should have them or a health food store.
