But first, a little Holiday.....
Beatles came right back in from the screened porch this morning after begging to go out. We only got a dusting of snow but I think it is very festive.
My holiday Santa Salt Shaker...just because
and it wouldn't be Christmas without the holiday Soap. My mom always bought cute holiday soap for the guest bathroom.
I love to continue that tradition. Often these are hard to find. Yesterday, between coughing and sneezing, I found some at a Department store.
Now for the knitting. Karen, my knit teacher and pal, mentioned the other day that Free Lance knitting is never a good idea.
So what did I do last night? Free lance thumb gusset on the fingerless I'm knitting. Guess what? Karen's right. It's all coming undone today. The good news is these are not a Christmas gift, so no pressure added.
The workend is approaching and I am glad most of the Holiday prep is done here. I saved some baking for when I felt better. That means some food prep in the days ahead. I do feel better.
The other morning I met my dear High School friend, Eileen, for coffee.
She laughed and whined at the same time, that she has to make the spinach stuffed tomatoes. Seems no one else in her family is going to make them unless she does. She can't fathom a Christmas without them. She can't stand the thought of making them.
Seems a free lance Christmas is never a good idea either.
Somethings just need to stay the same.
What are you making and dreading at the same time?
