It's an apple shaped canister that was filled with these marvelous Lindor truffles - they taste like coconut cream inside - they are to die for!! I have never had them before. AND Ferero Rocher. I will confess I have already had two pieces this morning - okay two of each! AND a wonderful Candlewishes soy candle in Creme Brulee. I wish I had my candle warmer here so I could smell up my classroom. (we can't light candles at school) Speaking of which, it's time for me to start school today.

I got Jingled!! What is that? At our school we like to change things up a bit and try new practices. This years Christmas practice, instead of drawing names and giving several small and one large gift to a single person, we have been divided into two groups (we have a very small campus inside a larger campus. We have a red group and a green group of about 6 or so people) and one person gives a gift to anyone on the - let's say green - list. Then you put a jingle elf outside your door letting everyone know you have received a jingle gift and you have 24 hours to jingle someone else on the list. The trick is to figure out who hasn't been jingled - the reason for the jingle elves. No one is to know who jingles who (or is it whom? I always get this wrong). The good thing is I have the entire weekend to gather together the gift I wish to give. Plus make 4 dozen cookies for a cookie exchange on Monday, plus get together my finals for my classes, plus finish sewing that one last item on my stocking swap that I still haven't figured out what I want to do, plus . . . the umpteen million other things I need to do this weekend. Thank goodness this jingle thing is the easiest. Okay, what did I get? I know you have all been chomping at the bit to see so . . .
