Rise and Shine December 13 – Coeur d’Alene Santa Cruise, Slow Cooker Pot Roast, Amazon book coupon $5 off $15, Macy’s One Day sale, dog DNA tests and more!

 

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Last night we went out on Lake Coeur d’Alene on a trip to the “North Pole” as part of the Journey to the North Pole cruises. We did this last year and had a great time. . . and this year didn’t disappoint either. It’s a short 30-minute boat cruise on Lake Coeur d’Alene that takes you out to Santa’s house and he reads the names of the kids on the good list. Then there are fireworks and everything lights up along the shoreline. It’s magical and fun. The kids drank hot cocoa and ate enormous cookies while an elf entertained them on the boat. 🙂 We also did some holiday shopping at the stores in downtown Coeur d’Alene and ate dinner at a local restaurant. It was a fun-filled night.

Today my 7-year-old woke up with a cough that just won’t quit – especially when she’s out in the cold air. On the way to the bus stop this morning it was apparent she should stay home today – so we’re spending the day snuggled up inside. We have a light dusting of snow at our house with temperatures no more than 34 degrees today! This winter is so different from last year – we got so much snow last year! We are expecting a snow fall on Friday – but really it’s been cold, crisp and SUNNY this winter – and that’s my favorite type of winter.

  1. Hope your daughter is feeling better. My mom used to wrap a wool scarf over my nose and mouth to keep me from breathing in really cold air. I still do it.

    On your recommendation, I bought an Instant Pot. Now I need to know what are the most useful accessories. (If you’ve posted this before, I missed it.)

    And, I’ve searched online, but haven’t found an Instant Pot recipe for preparing certain mixed vegetables. I want to cook potatoes, onions, carrots and celery together, if possible. I’m going to use them to make turkey soup.

    Many thanks!
