I never like to rush the holidays, but I find myself doing just that this year. The past couple of days I have been bringing out the Christmas decorations and getting things in place. It may seem a little early, but the next couple of weeks will be busy with a variety of things, and I don't want to be rushed getting things decorated. Another reason to get all this done now is the unseasonable weather. We may as well get those lights up before the winds change, the temperatures drop and the possibility of snow is in the forecast.
This upcoming week will find us celebrating our 39th anniversary and hope to find some time to at least go out for lunch. It will also find us with Tess several days, while mom and dad prepare to move into a new house by the end of the week. The following week we will be on call, if help is needed, when our grandson Joseph, has his adenoids removed. Sometime in the next couple of weeks I also have plans to begin making several cookie doughs, to get a little ahead and help out my daughter and daughter-in-law.
Once the decorating is complete and the baking gets started, I will share photos, ideas and recipes in my posts.
