Apparently I am a rare individual who actually does like fruitcake and do not understand why it is so maligned even on a day that it should be regaled.

I'd rather eat fruitcake than sit around making paper snowflakes.

I like some fruitcakes - not the ones that are so heavy on the green cherries.

I bought some Christmas cards on sale yesterday.

I haven't played cards in a while, but I think it would be fun to do so.

I can usually find a few people at senior centers interested in playing cards. I think I'll see who is around tonight.

I like a variety of games and get bored after playing the same one too much. We often play rummy, Kings in the Korner, Crazy Eights and a few other games. Pinochle is fun but it gets difficult finding people who'll agree on which rules to play by. I also like hearts but only have the computer to play with lately. Sequence is a board game that uses a double deck of cards- it is easy to learn but can be challenging to win.

I've never heard of Kings in the Korner or Sequence. It's nice that you have several games you like.

I am making soup today, but it's not Pepper Pot Soup.

It is definitely a good day for some nice hot soup. Tripe, a traditional ingredient in Pepper Pot, is not easy to find these days so I'll be considering other options. I am in the mood for something different...

That's a lot of seconds! I'll be making kale and potato soup tonight.

Snapper soup warmed my tummy today. Now, I need to take care of the leftover wine.

Too much sitting/lying around is having an effect- or maybe I just need a new scale?
