December 6

Today was a perfect day to bake in the Christmas kitchen. Snow fell lightly and softly all day long and the wind gusted from time to time. In the midst of the usual Monday tasks of laundry and other housework, I took time to bake 2 kinds of Christmas cookies -- macaroon kisses and gingerbread men. Both are now stored in tins in the freezer, awaiting gift-giving time.

After supper -- a beef pot pie, mashed winter squash, and coleslaw -- I spent some time working on a handcrafted gift and working a bit in my Christmas notebook. There are still a few items I need to buy for further Christmas baking!


  1. That sounds like such a perfect day!

  2. Hi, Darlene!

    Yes, it was a very nice day. I always love doing Christmas baking while snow falls outside. I will often bake the first Christmas cookies on the day of the first significant snowfall. Sometimes that comes in November, but not this year.
