It’s been a while since we had a rambling due to the flashes taking over the blog, but I think that’s pretty cool actually.
I decided to do one today.
This past weekend we made the trip to Buena Park and Knott’s Berry Farm. Fun fact, they call it Knott’s Scary Farm for Halloween and Knott’s Merry Farm for Christmas. It’s got the Peanuts gang, Snoopy and Woodstock etc, so it’s cute. I got myself a stuffed Woodstock with a Santa hat on it because, yes, I am a dork. We also had mulled wine and cookie shots with a bit of Baileys. Anyway, it’s a fun place and we really enjoyed it. Here’s a picture of their giant tree.
December is fully scheduled for flashes except for the last Friday which will conclude At His Side for my Fall Guys. I intended for it to be done and scheduled too but the file I sent myself was corrupted.
But if you read this carefully you will know the fun did NOT stop after the 25 Days of Christmas flashes. But I wrote one from 26-31. Well minus the December 27th one I need to finish. They aren’t song-themed, but you get flashes!
In January, I will be working to update some neglected fics. The Wednesday and Friday flashes will return in February. Bright, shiny and new.
I’m pretty much done with my shopping, but have wrapped nothing. So this Saturday I hope to amend that. I am terrible at wrapping, not gonna lie, but I have fun with it. I shall drink and be merry while I am at it. Will be fun.
We are having cool weather for us. This morning at my house, with the wind chill it felt like 27. It’s even only supposed to get to about 57 on Christmas. It’s nice for us. Since we’ve had days of 80s at Christmas!
I think that’s about it for now. I am sure I will ramble some more.

I bet your 27 doesn’t feel like my 27 either. ;P.
I’m so excited for you to have a drinking wrap party. Enjoy the crap out of that.
And woo! Lookit all those flashes we have to look forward to! That’s going to me awesome. Thanks so much for doing this Iv. It’s been a blast!

I’m excited that you are finishing out the entire month with flashes. Serendipity!
I look forward to the updates, too.
It will actually BE 27 here tonight.
Your photo literally could have been taken at 6 Flags. It looks so much like the same rides just in that area.
I love that Scary and Merry in the name.
All in all, a very delightful December.
I’m still pumped you got a garage door!

Yes I think some of their rides are quite similar to Six Flags! I do not ride on those, of course. Did ride on the little train though.
So am I! Love my door

Once when my HS’ers played at a contest at Six Flags, afterward I was so exhausted (they’d done really well, but that was a LOT of coordinating and buses and equipment and climbing and walking and etc.), I got on the train that goes around the park and went to sleep! I have no idea how many times I made the trip around, nor did I care. haha

I’m glad you had a good time at Knots Merry Farm 🙂 That’s a cool giant tree!
Can’t wait for the rest of the flashes to come and updates in the new year!
I do enjoy wrapping. Drink and enjoy your wrapping time ^-^
The weather here has been up and down. Was 60 a few days ago then in the 30s, then back to the 60s, and then down to the 40s. Rainy some days, sunny the next. Wish the weather would make up its mind LOL

Yes it’s a fun place.
Yeah ours has been a little wonky too but mostly cool for us!

Knott’s Merry Farm looks like fun. Love the big tree.
Hope your weather improves. We just had an ice storm and the driveway to my house is downhill from the road. We parked one car at the top of the hill that’s a 4 Wheel Dr. But the other two vehicles at the bottom the hill cannot make it up the driveway. Today the high temperature is just over freezing. So there won’t be much melting going on. Until I get it it’s going down to 10°! So I need to go outside and try to chip some of the ice away. Wish me luck!
I can’t believe you are gifting us with a month’s worth of flashes! Best Christmas gift ever! ❤️💚🎄🎅🎁🖖

LOL yeah I know, everyone has it worse than me. I have a cousin who lives in Maine, so yeah, I know. 🙂
I’m enjoying the cooler weather, actually. ❤
I can't believe I am either! I am a nutcase, clearly
