Today I made a list of gifts still to buy and make. I need to complete a Shutterfly project, do a few small paper crafting projects, five easy sewing projects, and a few small crocheted gifts. A few kitchen gifts also, but those are easy since they can be factored in with other kitchen tasks. We will see where it all goes.
I still have six grandsons left to buy gifts for. Little girls and teen girls are so easy to buy for, but boys can be a little more challenging. Need to check on those Amazon wish lists!
Yesterday Mr. T kicked off the Christmas cookie baking season (one of his favorite traditions) by making a quadruple batch of Chocolate Spritz. He had intended to bake a triple batch, but mistakenly quadrupled the sugar, so ... Of course it was fine. They're now stashed safely in the freezer.
Also yesterday, I managed to get the last of the fall decor taken down and began, ever so slowly, to begin the Christmas decorating. I enjoy doing this slowly so that I can savor it. Below is a favorite plate from Gooseberry Patch.
