I’m slinging this in while my cheesecake is baking. Today has been ...fractious! Don’t you just love holidays?! I’ve made sausage and egg muffins for breakfast, peasant bread, shopped and made home made burgers with potato wedges for dinner. I’ve got caramel brownies in one oven and cheesecake in the other. It’s flippin’ tropical in … Continue reading Day 24 On The Magical Musical Advent Calendar

Today’s prompt is ‘A song you’d sing a duet to at karaoke’ Oh boy. This would be the no song because I hate karaoke.

I think I’d pick My … Continue reading Day 17 On The Magical Musical Advent Calendar
