animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook


We’ve been prepping for the holiday ever since Black Friday. I managed to do 99% of my shopping over the Thanksgiving weekend and figured out the rest. We usually don’t decorate and put the tree up until mid-December, but Jake wanted to do that earlier this year, so we did just that. I finished making the Christmas cards and am in the process of mailing them this week. I still need to wrap gifts (which I will be doing this coming weekend) and make some treats. I’m only doing people treats this year (and not many at that). Sorry, dogs (I’ll make it up to you later). We’re having Christmas dinner here, but there’s not a lot I can do for that until closer to the day. I do have the menu figured out. I hope I’m not missing anything. If I am, I’m sure it will become apparent closer to the day.
