We haven't baked one Christmas cookie recipe this year, and I'll be honest. I'm not missing it. The sugar that is. The girls tell me they will make a few recipes to take with us to gatherings, but we'll see. I do need to get buckeyes made, as it is the only thing my Dad asks for, for Christmas.
It's just that week of the year, where we have a birthday, Christmas, and our wedding anniversary, all wrapped up in one week.
Hubby has to work on our anniversary, so planning anything is a bit complicated. We may end up scheduling ourselves an Island trip later, and celebrating a wee bit later that usual.
Just to torture me, he kept looking at photos from our last trip to the island.
If you are wondering, my hands have not turned into curled up messes from massive crochet work. If I can get this project done in time, I'm going to treat myself with a hand wax treatment, all out home spa treatment, followed whatever pampering activities I can drum up. There is the possibility that it won't get finished before Christmas too. Today we have to split wood and restock in preparation for the bad weather rolling in.
