I'm pretending there aren't piles on every counter in my kitchen today and I'm pretending that there's not a sink full of dirty dishes to be washed. And as long as I'm pretending, I think I'll have a little mid-day party. Would you like to come. If you're too busy, you can just pretend you came.
It's pretty mild here today and there's not a snowflake in sight.
But, since it is almost Christmas and I want it to feel Christmassy at our party, I've hung a few snowflakes to create the mood. Yes, they are blue because they match our sky and at our pretending party we can make the snowflakes any color we choose. You might have guessed at my party they would be blue :).
Even though it's the middle of the day, the candles are lit.
It can't be called a party without the candles lit, can it?
Now, let's see ... what else do we need?
Oh yes, food. Can't have a party without that.
Since it's too late for lunch and too early for dinner, how about a sweet treat. I know... how about some cookies?
I bought those cookie cutters the other day while out Christmas shopping. I pretended that my name was on my list and decided that they would make a perfect gift for me. Ho ho.
Just so you don't think that's all I do is pretend, the cookies are real. Just finished making them, hence the messy kitchen that I am currently avoiding. I have stacks and stacks of real cookies.
What would you like to drink with your stack of cookies?
(remember at pretend parties we also pretend that cookies don't contain calories :).
I made some hot chocolate mix last night as part of my neighbor gifts. Shall we try it out before giving it away? I think we definitely need to top it with a few real marshmallows, don't you?
As we carry on with our party, I think I'll keep on pretending.
Pretending the bathrooms cleaned themselves, the laundry put itself away, the presents wrapped themselves . . .
