Its Saturday, all day yesterday, I was thinking that today would be Sunday.
I set out the pumpkin for perhaps the 5th time since before Thanksgiving, planning
to make Pumpkin Bread....one thing led to another and I never got around
to it...this morning, when made breakfast, I set out all the ingredients for Pumpkin
Bread so I'm making progress. Hopefully, today is the day.....I have several
kinds of Cookies to make for Christmas.
I am participating in a Cookie Swap next Saturday.
I don't want to make them too soon because they need to be fresh.
Perhaps, I could go ahead and bake and just refrigerate them.
What do you think?
I had several photos in my folder that I wanted to share.
First, this is what I sent in my last package to Wendy,
my Secret Santa Sack partner. I mailed them
before Thanksgiving and they have yet to arrive.
What's up with that?
Anyway, this is just one of the things I'm stressed about.
This is a gift wrapping demo from the Holiday Bonanza I attended
a few weeks ago....the demonstrator owns a florist,
not only is he very talented but he is a humorous
And I know I mentioned before Thanksgiving that the Princess
and I were working on a puzzle. This is it.
We'll probably start another one once the house is back in order after New Years.
Here is my Nativity.
This year, I put it in the kitchen hutch because
I'm going to have lots of family here
on Christmas Day and
didn't want it to get knocked over and broken.
I know, I have Baby Jesus in the manger
already. I tried waiting until Christmas Eve one
year and forgot altogether so He goes in
there in the beginning.
This is a photo of the front of the house that I made
last night. We just put the lights up yesterday.
Notice all of the moons floating around...
Oops! Someone left a strand of lights on the chair.
In November when I attended the Christian Women's Luncheon,
this was the centerpiece and I wanted you to see how
clever someone is.
She just removed the labels from wine bottles, sprayed them different colors,
tied ribbons around them, stuffed them with flowers, gathered a scarf
and some beads and Wow.
That's it, just a random collection of photos...
