Weekend Coffee Share; Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Weekend Coffee share is a time for us to take a break out of our busy lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)! Please grab a cup of coffee or tea and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? any weekend plans?

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays for those of you that celebrate this holiday season differently. No matter how you celebrate whether its for the birth of Jesus or other traditions it is celebrated all over the world one way or another and for me it means family time. I long for these days with my family so I am so excited about the next 2 weeks!!

Can I get you a cup of coffee or tea? I am drinking a decaf coffee as I need to head to bed as soon as I am done sharing this post. I worked last night and work tonight so I need to get my Z’s in and REALLY wanted to share one last coffee share before Christmas. I will be busy and so here I am wishing you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY! I hope your wishes are granted and your dreams come true! Doesn’t that sound wonderful? Or sappy, I think it sounds wonderful, but some of my wishes are harder to grant ~ suffice it to say I wish for world peace and happiness. My hippie mind at work! ❤ ❤ ❤

My endeavors this weekend before Christmas. I baked 6 different kinds of sweets to give away as gifts! Pictured are 4, next are the other 2.
Homemade from scratch brownies! A cup of chocolate chips added to make them extra chocolaty!
A great recipe I found for Chocolate Chip Pecan cookies. Scrumptious!

I have been busy baking which I just love. I had lofty goals and met most of them. Pictured are Magic cookie bars (aka 7 layer bars), Sandies, White Chocolate cherry shortbread cookies, ginger molasses cookies, homemade brownies and chocolate chip pecans. I was going to make coconut lime shortbread cookies but ran out of time. I may make them one day next week as I bought limes and have all the ingredients. I have never made them before and am always wanting to try new recipes. 😀 😀 😀

The white chocolate cherry shortbread cookies are a first for me. They have almond extract so they have an almond cherry buttery taste, pretty darn tasty if I do say so myself!! It is really fun to give and super fun to bake! What do you do during the holidays? I use to bake much earlier and then mail to all my sister’s/brother but our family’s have grown and time just slips by so I continue to bake but just give to my employees, coworkers and friends. Maybe I will plan better and once again mail to my family, we will see!

Enjoying the trails in between baking! Haha, I can’t ignore my ponies. And yes, these are new photos. I just can’t help myself – I take a lot of photos!
Chloe, Zack and I out on the trails. I am ponying Zack and he is such a good boy!

You know I just have to share more photos of my weekend as I was able to fit in a few rides. I hope you enjoyed your coffee or tea with me as I totally enjoyed our visit! I have to get this finished. I hope you all have a great holiday. Most everyone I know are in a good place right now in their lives and so cheers to all! And for those of you who struggle through the holidays, stay strong, keep smiling, try and find the good during these weeks. I know sometimes its hard, especially if you miss a loved one or two. (I’m smiling up at my parents today.) LOVE TO ALL! ❤

Happy Christmas Crazy Grandma,

  1. It sounds like a wonderful way to spend the holidays; baking and horses, two of my absolute favourite things. I am not going to buy a new horse at this moment, but I have to admit that I did spend some time looking at some on the internet yesterday. .don’t tell anyone 😉
    Have a wonderful, wonderful Christmas ❤

    1. You make me giggle!! Hehe, I’d look too, what can it hurt to look at horses for sale? Doesn’t mean you’ll buy one right away! 🤣 I know you will be able to when the time is right. And we have kindred souls, baking and horses! Heaven!! ❤️😃🐎

  2. One last coffee before Christmas…. Yep the holiday season is synonymous with family 🎄🎄🎄🎉🎉🎉
    Here’s to getting lost in the endless family dinners 🍻🍻 and hiding booze in the coffee mug cause the aunties will start intervention programme

    I see the baking progressed smoothly and deliciously you really should share recipes for the simpler things 😍😍

    Merry Christmas!!!

    1. I can do that! I’ll share some recipes! There’s 2 cookies that I made this year that have no eggs in them. Super easy to make. The one I didn’t get too was a bit more complicated, hence why I didn’t get to it!

      🌲❤️ Thanks for your WONDERFUL kind words, you make me giggle about the booze in the coffee mug… Haha, I’ve never done that but certainly try and turn into a non verbal entity when the debaters get going. I just shut up, as I hate debating and rather just listen! Lol 😀 the family gatherings have shrunk for me as families here are far apart in distance. But I can remember many huge family gatherings that were a bit CRAZY! 🤣🤣🤣

      Here’s a toast to a wonderful Christmas for us all!! “Clink” 🥂🍾
