I saw Santa, and more tales from my world...
I saw Santa tonight! He was trying to sneak past, but I turned quickly and managed to snap a shot before he got away!!! Actually we were at a tree lighting and there he was! Very exciting! His beard was really awesome too! He had bells around his ankles at the top, and hanging down the side of his boots, and also had bells around his wrists, which we saw when he was rockin out to carols under the tree!!! He was a hip old man, I must say!!! After this we took the kids to a new carousel in town. This was their 3rd time going. It has horses on the outer edge, and the animals you can ride on the inner rings are all Florida animals...turtles, water birds, frogs, alligator, fish, etc. They have two spinning tea cups and a few benches if you just want to sit a spell. Right next to it, in the shopping center was a Whole Foods store, which Emily and I went into to see if they had any Swiss Chard. They had green and red, but no rainbow. I got the last red one they had. It's very pretty.
The grands are trying to sleep now, and I made myself a cup of Lady Grey tea...but this time I threw in a lemon-lime flavored Airborne tablet. I had never put one into a hot liquid before...that was a lot of fun!!! It started boiling so fast ...it's a fizzy tab with vitamins and minerals and herbs...it was done fizzing in about 5 seconds, it went so fast! Anyway, I took a sip, and was seriously blown away! The Airborne added an extra layer of flavor to the tea, and it somehow tastes very sturdy...as though it is gonna have my little head cold gone by tomorrow morning!!! I hope it will work some kind of magic on me! I really didn't need to be out in the night air, but, hey...you gotta have some fun, right???
