The image above is a wallpaper from 2019, from Disney Cruise Line to promote their Christmas cruises. You can still get the wallpaper here.  Of course, there’s no such cruise this year, but I just downloaded the wallpaper anyway. It’s on my laptop and it’s so cute!

I was in the grocery store yesterday and noticed a Ghirardelli Christmas in July display. They were selling their chocolate squares in the holiday flavors. I didn’t see the eggnog flavor I like, but I grabbed a bag of peppermint bark. 

It is over 100 degrees today where I live. It puts me in a “Christmas Island” mood. I spent some time researching the origin of that song, and I will share my findings with you tomorrow.

More things to look forward to this week: Christmas commercials, poems about Mrs. Claus, and red and green Jello squares. Nothing that requires going outside in the heat! Have a great week!
