My Christmas Wish List November 29, 2018

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Humor, Joke, Magick & Mystery.

Dear Santa:

I haven’t written to you in a number of years, but I think of you often and fondly.

I hope that you and Mrs. Claus are doing well and staying warm.  If you want a warm weather Winter Break after the 25th of December, let me know.  We have a spare bedroom and the red tide should be gone by then.

Anyway, I know you’re busy so let me get to the point of this missive.  When you make out your list (and check it twice) to find out who’s been naughty or nice, I’d be ever so appreciative if you would include the following gifts for me:

1. A bottle of magic pills that will let me sleep for 8 straight hours . . . every night . . . with no side effects (other than a perpetually cheery disposition).

2. A personal chef who has mastered the art of Gluten Free Vegetarian cuisine (including delicious GF bagels, pizza, and bread) and who eschews cooking with fungi.

3. A magical scale that will let me weigh whatever I want to weigh . . . every day.

That’s not too much to ask, is it? 😀

Ho ~ Ho ~ Ho!

Merry Christmas!


P.S. I know you can’t give me a personal chef.  But a few gift certificates to same would make great stocking stuffers!

Aah . . . that’s the ticket!

1. Jill Weatherholt - November 29, 2018

Can you add my name to number one, please? If I could sleep for five hours, that would be good, too!

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

Wrestling with sleep every night is exhausting. And when I do get a solid night’s sleep, I feel AMAZING!

If Santa doesn’t come through for us . . . see comment #6.

Jill Weatherholt - November 29, 2018

LOL! I have no trouble falling to sleep…it’s staying asleep. Last night I tried Valerian Root, it worked well. I slept from 9:15 until 3:00 which is good for me!

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

Yay! That’s a healthy stretch of sleep, Jill. I have not tried Valerian Root. Maybe I’ll give it a go.

Jill Weatherholt - November 29, 2018

Yes, that was a great stretch for me. It smells terrible, but it didn’t give me crazy dreams like Melatonin. 🙂

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

Good to know. Thanks, Jill!

roughwighting - November 29, 2018

I read that lavender helps so bought a bottle of lavender essential oil and put some drops on my pillow. Ahhhhh 😴

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

Glad it’s been a good sleep aid for you, Pam. Another natural remedy for me to try. Thanks!

And, as a plus, lavender smells better than Valerian Root (apparently). 😀

2. rivergirl1211 - November 29, 2018

Please ask Santa where he gets those scales. I am in dire need…

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

My new mantra:

What goes UP must go DOWN. Right?

rivergirl1211 - November 29, 2018

I used to think so… until menopause. Now it seems to be a one way street. Straight up.

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

I don’t like this one way street. Let’s make a U-Turn . . . or take a detour!

3. colonialist - November 29, 2018

I see, on the side, that a Santa suit doesn’t suit the seaside.
You have a preoccupation with slumber and gluttony . . .?
Way to go!

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

Eat, Sleep, and Be Merry!

4. joyroses13 - November 29, 2018

A great post to make me smile first thing in the morning! 🙂 Thanks for the blog share!
If you get the personal chef please tell Santa to send their twin to me! 🙂

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

Will do! It’d be GREAT to have a personal chef who cooked healthy, nutritious, and delicious cuisine “to order” . . . especially if those meals caused the number on the scale to DROP!

joyroses13 - November 29, 2018

The perfect gift indeed! 🙂

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

And simple, right? 😉

5. Ally Bean - November 29, 2018

If Santa comes through for you I’ll be asking him for that scale. He could become a gazillionaire selling that thing.

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

My scale gave me some rather disappointing news this morning. I should banish it from the bathroom! 😛

Ally Bean - November 29, 2018

I have done that. Ours lives in the basement where it cannot cause me daily distress. Its attitude is so negative.

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

A basement! That’s what’s missing here in Florida! 😆

6. Tippy Gnu - November 29, 2018

Dear Nancy,
If you will leave some gluten-filled cookies for me, by the tree, I will leave you a bag of marijuana-brownies for your sleep, and I will adjust your bathroom scale to always read 10 pounds lighter than actual weight.

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

Make them GF, high fiber, low calorie, low fat brownies and you got a deal! 😆

Tippy Gnu - November 29, 2018


nrhatch - November 29, 2018

You know, Santa, when you laugh . . . your belly looks like a bowl full of jelly.

7. Rainee - November 29, 2018

Well said Nancy. I would be delighted if Santa could just send me the magic scales!

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

The first time I experimented with being GF, I felt I had a magic scale since I lost weight without even trying. But since I quit smoking, the pounds have returned. Bastards! 🙄

Rainee - November 29, 2018

Yes, I know if I took up smoking again the kilos would fall away – not worth the risk though 🙂

nrhatch - November 29, 2018


8. Kate Crimmins - November 29, 2018

No fungi? Really? This fall dietary instructions have changed. Salad is now hazardous to your health and brownies may help you sleep (depending on the ingredients wink wink).

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

Yup, not a fan of shrooms . . . except maybe the magic kind! Wink. Wink.

Note to self ~> swap out salad for brownies! 😆

9. granny1947 - November 29, 2018

I love the idea about the scale.Mine has been banished!

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

I’ve “unfriended” mine as of this morning.

10. L. Marie - November 29, 2018

That’s a great list! Please add me to at least two of those requests!

nrhatch - November 29, 2018

Santa will know exactly which two are for you!

11. Joanne Sisco - November 30, 2018

I like the sound of this list. Make mine the same … although swap out the GF breads etc and make mine brownies 🙂

nrhatch - November 30, 2018

Mais oui!

Et un croissant pour le petite madame?
Avec beurre?

12. Tiny - December 2, 2018

A great list, Nancy! I’m a medium-good sleeper and appreciate it even more after this past week’s short nights. I’m not made for 8 a.m. meetings any more 🙂

nrhatch - December 2, 2018

Me neither ~ I’m barely awake at 8 am.
How did we do it? 🙄

Tiny - December 2, 2018

I have no idea!

13. anotherday2paradise - December 10, 2018

A really good list, Nancy. I’ll take the personal chef in a heartbeat., although I am rather partial to the odd stuffed mushroom. Maybe I can bake those on his day off. 🙂

nrhatch - December 10, 2018

You’re not alone, Sylvia. There are a lot of fans of shrooms out there.

Having a personal chef “on call” would be great!
