Three Beautiful Things 12/17/14: Decorating Mom's House, Baking Goodies with Mom, Hallmark Movies

1.  The Help Mom Get the House Decorated for Christmas Project continues -- plants moved and rearranged, creche on the television, lights on the new plants on the television, angel with a color wheel of different colors inside of it needs a new bulb -- probably won't make the cut --, and an assortment of other angels, reindeer, ornaments, and other lights ready to be placed around the house with care.  Things are looking very festive around here.

2.  The Help Mom Bake Christmas Goodies for Christmas Project continues:  today's goodie:  a five (I think) layered cookie of melted margarine, graham cracker crumbs, butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, sweet condensed milk, and ground walnuts.  Later, after they cooled, Mom and I worked together to extract the cookies from the pan.  They are sweet, rich, and ready to eat and ready to share if you happen to be in the neighborhood and want to drop by.

3.  Once  today's episode of  General Hospital ended at two o'clock, Mom had me change the channel to 44 -- yes, the Hallmark Channel.  I didn't watch the movie (one of Hallmark's 12 Movies of Christmas) closely, but the one that was on today definitely featured a woman who was unsure about a man, a man who was romantically non-committal, and I sensed that characters were struggling with whether or not they were feeling the Christmas spirit -- I know the woman of the movie stated that "Christmas is more than commercialization".  I didn't see the conclusion of the movie, but I'll bravely predict that the romantic problems got solved and that something happened, maybe while the woman television anchor was doing her community service for a car collision she was in, that restored everyone's Christmas spirit.
