Today was the first day it snowed! I loved it so much I got out my Christmas decorations and listened to Christmas music. Yes, I know it’s only November 3, but I love Christmas all-year long.
I even had pumpkin chiffon pie to celebrate the occasion! This pie is so light and fluffy it has to have “chiffon” in the title!
I listened to Christmas music today and ate a piece of my favorite pie. Check out one of my new favorite Christmas songs. It’s not jazz, it’s just fun. Check out “Christmas Will Be Just Another Lonely Day” sung by Brenda Lee.
