7 Quick Takes Friday

We officially own the Nat King Cole Christmas album... and I do love that man's silky voice... but my fluent-in-German-children literally can't handle his "O Tannenbaum". "He's talking wrong!" Yes. He is. It's like nails on a chalkboard.
Brian and I have made it through the first half of the Dolly Parton documentary on Netflix... and we had so much fun watching it! But in other news, I had NO IDEA she wrote I will always love you. This has shaken my world.
If you are looking for more ways to feel "Cozy" in our pandemic holiday season, might I suggest peppermint simple syrup? Boil 1 c. water and 1 c. sugar until dissolved. Take off heat and mix in 1 tsp peppermint extract. Peppermint hot cocoa, peppermint mochas, and there's probably a cocktail or two waiting for you, if you like that direction... but I haven't looked that up, yet...
Oh, and I need to get on the Christmas Cookie bandwagon. I'm way behind this year. GASP.
